Age of Uber

The Coast - - THIS WEEK -

The cab com­pa­nies have had a monopoly on fee-for-ride ser­vices for well over 100 years, and in all that time they failed to pro­duce a system that de­liv­ers safe, clean, re­li­able, quick, com­pe­tent ser­vice. That should be the go-ahead sig­nal to the politi­cians to per­mit in­de­pen­dent op­er­a­tors and ride-share op­tions such as Uber and Lyft to ob­tain one-off li­cences. The cream will rise to the top, and the rapists, rob­bers and over-ca­pac­ity will quickly fall by the way­side with the in­creased com­pe­ti­tion. —Don MacK, via email
