Once uber rates get much higher cabs will be able to raise their rates

Only problem is Uber can do what they want whenever they want. We have to get permission from the TLC!

there's this formula going on that i'm just starting to understand, the utilization rate of HV apps , if it goes down they have to pay their drivers more, the peek i get from the street , there are more empties than their were before Uber raised its rate for paz  ,if that's the case the UR will go down on the next recalibration of the UR,  do you know when that is? , if it goes down and if they act like they do now , it'll mean raising their rates again for pax, if this scenario holds up, chances are 50/50 they will putter out because at some point pax will say that's too much and move over to taxis

I'm disappointed , so far i haven't seen any positive effect for taxis due to the increase in price differential between taxi and Uber. maybe the people don't know or maybe the people don't care about the money, uber pool is becoming more popular as more people use that service to save money , our fight is with Uberx, that is the most similar service to the traditional taxi,

We need a comparison app so that people can know the difference when they’re taking the more expensive Uber
