A lot of the guys in the charter car business ABSOLUTELY HATE Uber. They think the company is the devil incarnate and that the drivers are the spawn of Satan. I don’t feel that strongly about them, but I do think there’s a hell of a lot broken with this company and they’ve a long way to go to rebuild public trust.
It’s no surprise that cities where limo services are the most popular also tend to be places where there’s the worst gridlock. I’m not suggesting a cause and effect here; it’s just a fact of life that where limos are popular, there’s likely to be a lot of traffic. And a lot of frustration for owners, drivers and clients.
