General Discussion / Chat Room-Use it or Lose it!
« on: December 12, 2018, 09:50:44 AM »
I created a chat room thinking that many people would want to chat with others and maybe come up with some good ideas.

So far there has been little response.

I've set times for Chat at Tue Thurs and Sunday 7PM.  However, you can chat any time you want.

Unless, I see interest in the next two weeks, I will remove this option.

I'm open to opinions. I may do it just to see what happens.

There were 105 foreclosures. They will be auctioned and be back on the street in due time.

43
Uber is a corporation with one man sitting on top of the pyramid . We are not like this. We are fragmented and have many voices. That is our weakness that UBER is taking advantage of. So, how do we change that?

44
I do care. I just want to know in simple language how this information will help bring Uber down?

45
And what does all of this mean from our point of view? Is this good? Is this bad? All I want is to see UBER go bankrupt and disappear. They stole my future and I want it back!

The Scooters are accidents waiting to happen! Many will fall when hitting pot holes or other obstructions in the road. The riders will be hurt or run over by vehicles.

What will Bloomberg say then? Bloomberg wants to be President. Just what we need (not), a person with a personal vendetta in the white house.

The reason the medallion numbers were put on the plates was to better identify the taxi. This was done many years ago. To change it to something else is counterproductive and insane!!!!!!!!!

General Discussion / Re: Curb App
« on: October 28, 2018, 05:42:30 PM »
I know that Verifone takes 5% of all CC payments including tolls and tips that are part of the payment.  For the first time someone I know did a Curb App call and an additional $4.71 was taken along with the 5% fee. When Verifone was asked why the $4.71 was taken the Verifone rep said it was the fee for the App call.
Can you comment on that?

General Discussion / Re: Medallion Financial- MFIN, New High Today $7.24
« on: October 05, 2018, 04:21:59 PM »
I've been watching this stock almost daily for the last three years. When it fell to around $1.75 I thought to buy a bundle. But I didn't have the guts. Considering how much it fell, it was around $18. before the UBER disaster, I didn't want the small amount of money I had saved to disappear with it.  Yes, I could have recovered much the money I lost on my medallion, but no one has a crystal ball. I'm glad it recovered so much. But, stocks are like playing the horses. No one can tell who's going to win and who's going to lose.

General Discussion / Re: Well This Kinda Proves IT.....
« on: September 24, 2018, 08:39:15 PM »
Then one of Mr. Bloomberg’s former deputy mayors called him with a proposition: “There’s this guy with a small transportation startup. He’s having some regulatory problems. Would you mind talking to him?” It was Uber. The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission had sent Uber a cease and desist letter, and its then-CEO Travis Kalanick needed someone who understood New York politics. Mr. Tusk mounted successful campaigns on behalf of the company in New York and other cities, including Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.

This revelation is MIND BLOWING. So, the TLC went from a Cease and Desist letter to opening the doors wide for UBER.   The TLC was enforcing the rules and Bloomberg turned it around for his own satisfaction. Rules! What Rules? And, those in the TLC that helped him are still running the show, at least it appears so.

I don't have any inside info. But, I believe Daus resigned because he didn't want any part of Bloomberg's plan

« on: September 16, 2018, 09:01:10 PM »
Do you have to accept? Did it save you time that you would have been empty? This has to be considered. If you would have driven empty from Northern Blvd to the city then you had a good fare. If you could have picked up a fare on Northern Blvd by hail then you were shortchanged. You have to weigh the pros and cons.

General Discussion / Re: Saturday night
« on: September 11, 2018, 07:53:24 AM »
Started at 7:45 PM. Did 18 trips at 2AM = $193 minus $12 for surcharges 16 on the card. $24.30 biggest trip. Didn't leave Manhattan once. Not even Astoria. Drove past plenty of our passengers looking for their uber. How am I supposed to not feel pessimistic? What is going to happen when the $2.50 starts? I agree with JFK Mike about these morons who don't want a raise. I told one driver who is against a raise to ask 100 people on the street if they want a raise. I want a raise. These drivers are just plain stupid. 42 foreclosures listed on TLC site. What are they going to do with these medallions? It's every month. Can't wait to see what this mysterious health fund is.

I count 48 Medallions Foreclosed.That is terrible. I believe these medallions will be resold at auction and most of the drivers will be back driving for who ever buys them. The positive view is that the Medallions can still make money! If you are not on the ledge of foreclosure you are on the right side. Be happy you still have a business that makes money. As for the $2.50- it sucks and we will just have to wait and see what effect it has and then deal with it. Also, you should have started earlier on Sat. The hours you chose to work aren't the best on that day. By, 8 PM most people are where they want to be and business dosen't pick up until 10 PM. What about the week days? I know some drivers that are doing a lot better than what you have described!

84
Most drivers will never ditch their cars because it is the only way they have to express their freedom and let their emotions explode.  Auto makers can make the greatest self driving cars imaginable and still people will want to be in control and at the steering wheel. It's 99% mental.  Very Very few people care about the driver less technology. 

86
All of the App Cars should be confined to the same territory that the Green Cars were confined to, no pickups in any way in Manhattan below 96th street on the east side and below 110th street on the west side

What would you do with this list?

You can call all the medallion brokers and ask for their help. There is TMODA who has many members. You can go to the airport taxi hold areas and ask one by one who is a medallion owner. Let them know what you are doing and hand out cards for other medallion owners to get in touch.

But, you need to be convincing with a plan of action that they can relate to.
