Uber Black without market

    Hi,

    Ever since I became an UberX driver, I aspired to be on the Uber Black platform. I went to my PUC and asked for the information on starting my own sedan service which they told me is not as easy as I thought. The most difficult being the $12,000 limo license fee which must be handled through an attorney. In addition, I have to pay $150 for limo driver license which I can only obtain once all parking tickets have been paid. I owe about $3,000 from the time I began driving at the age of 18 years old. Uber in Philly has told me that it is not worth it as there is no market. They seem to be doing away with Uber black, have discontinued Uber select, and is pushing UberPools. I'm a law student and to really build my sedan service would require me to have to drop out and save almost all my money I make driving with Uber. I'm not sure of Uber's direction and I feel that dropping, I would regret it latter. Is getting a limo driver license even worth the cost and time if I plan on not driving for a limo company? Thanks.

    Um, drop out of law school for Uber? I can't see that as a viable long term path.

    So part time Uber and forget the service. Meet other drivers and use it for networking as Uber is a billion dollar class action waiting to happen.

    Heck, start signing drivers to represent them in any class action against Uber and when the eventual case occurs, take a contingency to allow another firm to represent your clients

    With uber, the only consistent thing is that it gets worse for the drivers, every year is worse than the year before with more miles driven to make less money, I WOULD NOT try to get involved with Uber Black.

    Obviously you've never practiced law.

    Out of fear of stating the obvious, he mentioned he was in law school; hence, there is no set of facts that would support that he was practicing law. That comment rings hollow. :)

    Obviously I was replying to the second note in the thread that was questioning why anybody would drop out of law school to do uber.
