And that is why Europe winds up with more expensive servifes than the rest of the wold.
yeah, tell that to the doctor asked 10 times the fare of a legal Taxi.
Uber is not the taxi service
it is. Repeating a false statement doesn´t make it true, not matter how often you repeat it.
It is a piece of software on a phone that is connected to servers that facilitate peopel getting rides and those providing them.
Which is exactly what a taxi service does.
At the end of the day, Uber doesn't have the car,
which is exactly what a taxi service doesn´t have
and doesn't take the payments.
exactly like a taxi service
and doesn't provide the actual taxi service.
which means it does provide a taxi service. They are not a taxi company, but then again, no one is claiming they are.
It only makes those transactions more efficient.
BS, there are plenty of legal taxi services via apps that are just as efficient as Uber.
Perhaps in the overly regulated world of the EU it makes sense to call that a taxi service,
that is because it is a taxi service. You keep repeating the definition of a taxi service over and over and over again when you describe what Uber is doing.
but it does not do justice to what is actually occurring,
It is exactly what is occurring, as you have pointed out yourself time and time again. When you describe what Uber does, you describe a taxi service.
and it does not provide a better framework for establishing a proper taxing and reporting scheme for independent taxi drivers and consumers that are using the Uber or Lyft services to make the taxi service possible. All it does is further an antiquated system from the old days with old rules.
That is actually correct, neither Uber nor Lyft provide any better framework over existing systems. You should stopp to assume that just because Taxi services in the US sucked before Uber came along, that Taxi services sucked elsewhere as well. They didn´t. They worked fine, work fine and are a hell of a lot more reliable than Uber or Lyft.
They have a small price advantage because they aid and embedd tax evasion, social security fraud and below legal insurance and maintenance standards for commercial passenger transport. But those costs are only shifted towards society, so net benefit is zero. Well, actually it is a worse than zero, because Uber charges its contract drivers more for the fare than other taxi services. So much for being efficient.....
This signature is a safe place.
