Taxi Drivers Rally Againt Uber

no to uberIf you took your lunch hour in LOVE Park today, you would have seen lots of taxis but would have had trouble catching a ride.

Cab drivers parked their vehicles and then encircled Philadelphia City Hall in a horn-honking protest to demonstrate they don’t want competition from ride-sharing services.

Dozens of taxis were parked in rows three deep on JFK Boulevard as the drivers held up signs protesting the Uber-X ride-sharing service. The service uses a mobile phone app for pickups instead of phone calls or hailing a cab from the curb. Through the app, the company connects people looking for a ride with private car owners looking for extra money.

Philadelphia Parking Authority regulations have kept Uber from operating the ride-sharing services in the city. Ronald Blunt, president of the Taxi Workers Alliance of Pennsylvania, said cab drivers and owners are united against legalizing Uber-X.

    This is very big challenge for Uber. If you are doing big business and traditional taxis are getting affected and hurt their business this issues could be address in the proper forum. This is a big concern as well, I admit. Running a traditional taxi competing with the mobile App transport companies are hard.

    Expect more complaint, Uber is getting popular and I am not surprised with the outcome. Many private taxi operators absolutely will raised a complaint against Uber. A new and strong resolution to address this issue must be heard and implemented as soon as possible.

    It is clear now that Uber will not voluntarily clean up its act and pay drivers fairly. The Mayor cannot take a laissez faire approach and let this play out in the court for years
