    Default Limousine Operators Whining About UBER Thread

    I visited another limo industry page (Face Book) and much of the postings is dedicated to defeating the big, bad UBER Monster so I feel it's only righteous to kick off the Official Limousines online UBER Sucks thread.

    So have at it. LOL

    Unless you are running a taxi service Uber has zero affect on our industry. The type of people who use Uber are looking for a ride now and most trips are inner city 5 to 10 miles. They are a new version of a taxi. If the limo industry is threatened by cabs then we obviously have forgotten our purpose in this industry. Uber can never replace the pre arranged professional service that we all provide. In this ever changing world you need to be willing to embrace change. Uber is here to stay as it is the future of on demand taxi service.

    A lot of glorified cabbies out there Elegant. Only reason why they can feel threatened.

    The rules are changing. If Uber does not like the rules / regulations set forth by the local government they just leave. Look what happened in San Antonio.

    I believe they leave if the profits doesn't equal up to the headaches ie, they're still fighting it out in Tampa despite fines, threats of arrest and a cease and desist lawsuit .

    Could you imagine if these machines start showing up in the major Metro areas? Or even inside bars and restaurants.

    Uber is doing what no one in our industry has had the power or balls to do. That is fight back against a corrupt and over priced permitting system. Tell me why we have to buy so many permits every year I am running out of room on my windshields ! Every year, Orlando, Orlando Int, Port Canaveral, jacksonville, Jax Int. Inspections in each city. Oh and now Jacksonville Beach. If we all grew a pair and jointed together and said no more !! Things would change. I believe in regulation, but make it statewide. One permit and one inspection. Wake up people we are being taken to the cleaners and Uber is the only one doing anything about it.

    Taxi cabs better get use to it. Just like when Netflix came on the seen and now Blockbuster is gone. With time comes change, go with the times or be left behind.

    In Florida it is not surprising that entrenched limo ops, Florida limo associations and the regional director of the NLA have aligned with the crooked cab industry's fight with Uber. So far as to protest against the state taking limo regulation away from locals and placing it in the hands of a state agency that would not restrict market entry.

    Birds of a feather..............
