Uber Says It Will Start Offering Flying Taxis In 2020

When the drunk college kids overload the flying car, it'll fall out of the sky.
The upfront fare will be based on the road distance from origin to destination. The pilot would be paid for the straight line distance.
If someone pukes out the window, would there be a cleaning fee for whatever gets hit by the puke falling from the sky.
Hope there's an ejector seat to kick out unruly passengers mid flight.
The pilot would get 1 star if it's windy
How would this be able to operate at airports, the most popular place for Uber rides.

I understand the "puke" problem. This last Saturday night, about 11PM, I picked up 7 people from Horseshoe Casino. While crossing the Chicago Skyway bridge, the pax in the third row, right side, puked all over the floor and his seat. There rest of the trip was about 30 minutes with all windows down. At the end, I have never seen people exit a vehicle so fast, it was almost funny!! The tip was $20. I sent Uber the pictures and they almost immediately paid me $150 "cleaning and repair" fee. It took me about 2 hours to clean and deodorize the area. Unfortunately I had to cut the night short because of this.
In a flying car, I can just see the pax bail out with their parachutes.
New UberVTOL requirement: All passengers must carry their own certified parachute in case of mid-air emergencies.
The upfront fare would also have to include altitude reached and descent. The driver would still get the straight line rate at ground level.

Just wait until we announce the Uber Space Elevator.

We'll have it done in 2022.

That's one case in which Uber is better than a taxi. A taxi driver would only get the $20 tip and fare, that's it

If all these companies are working on these fly robots then im guessing.
No need for:
Doctors
Manufactures
Drivers
Builders
Bankers
Assistants
Actors/actresses
Teachers
Porn stars
Cheifs
No need for human control only to watch over the machiene like an idiot. Also get payed less as the CEO take all your money

This reminds me of something called the Skycar l heard about a while back. Guy named Paul Moller is the inventor of it. Basically it's a self driving flying car.

I heard the guy interviewed by Art Bell a few times. Basically his goal was a whole system of flying cars that were computer controlled, especially good for medium-sized trips like D.C. to Raleigh or Charlotte.

The site to see more is http://moller.com.

If I'm not allowed to post a link Google 'Paul Moller Skycar'. I'm surprised Travis hasn't either bought him out or stolen his technology.

There are some things a robot can't do

Uber owned self driving cars cannot happen because Uber is NOT a taxi service - government regulations
Uber Flying cars cannot happen because Uber is not a "Sky cab" service - government regulation
Uber owned Taxi cannot happen because Uber must transfer requests to a real taxi service - government regulation
As I understand the restrictions on TNP services, no TNP can own any of the vehicles, including Uber, Lyft, VIA, Juno, etc.

Maybe there is a good possibility TK didn't know about MI, until you mentioned them. Now the cat is out of the bag!

I heard that Uber is working on a time machine that's powered by unicorn farts.
Uber, in it's quest to skirt regulations and laws, is going in with Telsa, in building the underground hyperloop. Travis believes all laws are for above ground transportation.
Booking fee: $20.00
Minimum Fare: $200.00
No driver
Up front fare pricing
Should be ready in 4 years or less

You can't even fly a large drone, a large kite ( ultra light acft) or even a hot air balloon with out FAA authorization, which includes flying lessons, ground school, drug testing, acft inspections, insurance and licensing. And Travis K thinks he can go around it ( faa regulations ) like he did with the dot and state and city programs for livery services. This is just another distraction to attract ignorant investors whom have too much greed and not enough commonsense. I predict by 2020 Travis K will be either dead or institutionalized ie in jail.
This is just to funny to waste a comment on

PAY DRIVERS !
DO NOT DISCOURAGE TIPPING !


Thing is ,a full size helicopter can only operate in 40 Knott winds give or take. They would be grounded 50% of the time in Chicago alone !
( these things are made of beer can thickness aluminum and plexi glass plastic,wind will blow it off the roof)
( no door slamming passengers allowed !)
AND THEN . . . You need IFR( INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RATING) to fly at night. More Avionics and higher level of training required.
It will never be more than a novelty.

Imagine stepping out of your helicopter In a business suit,after a light rain,and Rotor wash throws pidgeon droppings and water all over you ! Seen it happen ( minus the suit)( seagull urine ,fish heads,defecations)

Uber flying cars don't have a pilot. No need for instrument rating. Even so, it won't matter. Doesn't matter if Bell is involved. They can't fly in the city. They can't fly in the wind, or heavy rain or icing conditions. Dubai isn't the USA.

Well then.
981 days til 2020.
1345 days til Dec 31, 2020.

Uber claims they can pull this off in 1345 days?
LMAO!

Not only is it a ridiculously short time period, but we're talking about the company who can't code an app right and hasn't been able to fix it in over 5 years. The clock doesn't even work right, I've been online for 4 hours and 95 minutes?

I hope you people really don't believe this...lmao! Next thing you know Uber is going to partner with Expedia for weekend getaways to the moon...lol! They sound like a penny stock or MLM scheme now. This is even too far fetched for those types of companies.

I wonder of Uber engineers are like Uber Support? If they are, then they will miss their time frame by several hundred years. Considering that most of my contacts with Uber support has not been good.
