    Default What's With The National Limousine Assn's Obsession With Uber?

    Every Chauffeur Driven issue has a Uber section. Damn! Isn't there enough bullshit going on with limos to report on? Oh, that's right, the industry propagandists doesn't hold its' own accountable.

    Here's a link to their FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/ChauffeurDr...f=ts&ref=br_tf

    With the NLA working so hard to deny folks a transportation choice (old news) , I think all Uber and Lyft fans should avoid doing business with any limo operation flying the NLA Logo in their advertising.

    I just scrolled through the facebook page and all it had was them complaining about uber and posting anti uber articles. Not really a good way for people to learn new things to further their limo business. 100 years later and people really haven't changed.

    Default A Few National Limousine Assn Facts

    The NLA main whining point is that Uber and other TNCs ignore local licensing regulations and basically kick in doors and set up shop.

    That Uber (TNC) drivers not being fingerprinted background checked is detrimental to public safety.

    Some facts I will add to as I explore the primary whiners local regs:

    #1- Many of the markets Uber targets are closed to new business. This means that even if Uber wanted to play ball in a place like Miami, there are no licenses to be had.

    #2- Regulators set minimum prices the consumer must pay. Uber went into Tampa for the RNC ready to play ball. That is until they were told that in addition to the multitudes of permits Uber would have to charge their customers a minimum of $50.

    #3- NLA award winning sweethearts on Long Island operated with no TLC or other regulatory body until 10 years ago for Nassau County and 2 (?) years ago for Suffolk County. Regulation only came into play when Nassau Cabbies pushed for permitting to keep NYCTLC cabs from crossing the border.

    #4- NLA Regional Director and key Uber hater Dave Shaw has exclusively worked limos "based" in Florida counties with no regulators.
