Arrow icon When her workday ends, Jenni Yan has choices about how to get to her South Philadelphia home. If she missed a 4: Now, she uses a ride-hailing app about twice a week if she misses her bus. Riders like Yan are contributing to a significant shift in the region away from public transit, particularly buses, to Uber and Lyft.
Compared with , the last full year SEPTA operated without ride sharing in the city, the ridership loss is even more significant.
For more background on how the Washington Post smeared Naked Capitalism along with other established, well-regarded independent news sites, and why this is such a dangerous development, see this article by Ben Norton and Greenwald and this piece by Matt Taibbi. Our post gives more detail on how we plan to fight back. By virtue of steamrolling local taxi operations in cities all over the world, combined with cultivating cheerleaders in the business press and among Silicon Valley libertarians, Uber has managed to create an image of inevitability and invincibility.
How much is hype and how much is real? As transportation industry expert Hubert Horan will demonstrate in his four-part series, Uber has greatly oversold its case. There are no grounds for believing that Uber will ever be profitable, let alone justify its lofty valuation, absent perhaps the widespread implementation of driverless cars. Lambert has started digging into that issue, and his posts on that topic have consistently found that the technology would be vastly more difficult to develop and implement that its boosters acknowledge, would require substantial upgrading in roads, may never be viable in adverse weather conditions snow and rain and is least likely to be implemented in cities, which present far more daunting design demands that long-distance transport on highways.
The taxi ride company provided pages of verbiage, but would not provide its net income or even annual revenues. By Hubert Horan, who has 40 years of experience in the management and regulation of transportation companies primarily airlines. Horan has no financial links with any urban car service industry competitors, investors or regulators, or any firms that work on behalf of industry participants.
Uber is currently the most highly valued private company in the world.
Taking a back seat with Uber, Lyft or a taxi: Is it about being first class?
They’re a blessing when you need an instant ride in the baking heat, and a curse when you get a stinky cab with a poor driver in a car that hasn’t been MOT’d in three years! Sometimes you hit the jackpot and land a new taxi with a driver who takes pride in keeping the seats clean and taking a shower once a day. Other times you hold onto the door handle for dear life as you race toward the airport thinking you’d rather be 50, feet in the air for 13 hours on a plane than in this deathtrap.
The one thing about Thailand is that taxis are cheap, well at least in Bangkok anyway. They are probably among the cheapest taxis in the world. So hey, what can you expect?

As Uber grows, SEPTA to rethink bus service
Facebook said in January that at the end of time spent by users had fallen by about 50 million hours a day, after changes designed to reduce passive video watching and stem the spread of sensationalism. Match Group Inc shares closed down more than 22 percent. A prototype displayed on screens at the F8 conference showed a heart shape at the top-right corner of the Facebook app. Pressing on it will take people to their dating profile if they have set one up.
Potential matches will be recommended based on dating preferences, things in common and mutual friends, Facebook said in a statement.

Uber used vanishing message system to hide tracks, criminal probe reveals
The FTC had sued Uber last year, claiming it mislead drivers with both false income estimates and misleading lease agreement terms. Less than 10 percent of UberX drivers were able to earn the amounts Uber claimed as its average. These checks are the result of that settlement. However, the FTC now says nearly 88, drivers qualify for checks. With that substantial pool of claimants, the average check adds to less than the estimated loss that the FTC claimed the average Uber driver would have suffered in just a month or two, if that driver had relied on the site’s claims to buy or lease a car.
For instance, the company offers a premium ride service called UberBlack that requires higher-end cars and commands higher fares.
I find using the service like a dating site to be disturbing. I’m sure there are plenty of people who love the fact they can get hot Uber drivers or passengers, but that’s not the intention of most customers.
It’s available on both iOS and Android. As well as paying for rides through the app, you can also use cash or a credit or debit card. In July, Matthew Taylor, a former policy chief to Tony Blair and chief executive of the Royal Society of Arts, published a detailed review into changing working practices in the UK and what must be done to crack down on unfair practices.
It could embolden regulators in other countries to take a fiercer stand against the group. Uber is already battling a slew of legal cases and challenges in several US states and has been forced to quit countries including Denmark and Hungary. In June, founder Travis Kananick resigned from his role as chief executive officer in the face of shareholder outrage over company culture.
A bribery investigation is ongoing in Asia.
Uber cancellation charge: The ‘lost’ drivers pocketing £5 without taking you anywhere
Uber is not a dating app. Nobody wants to hear you complain about traffic. Keep the door locked between riders so you have a chance to make up your mind about the stumbly stinky drunk with the liquid spot on his crotch (hope that was a spill and not) before he’s already in the seat. -it’s happened.
Until Kalanick resigned, some investors and management experts believed that appointing an experienced chief operating officer to work alongside the brash-but-forward-thinking CEO would offer the balance Uber’s executive leadership needed. But in lieu of that, business experts believe an experienced manager is the best bet. So it’s not surprising that the search committee would turn to individuals with a track record of managing large organizations.
Matt Cohler, a partner at Benchmark who recently took a seat on Uber’s board, worked closely with IAC to steward the development of the dating app Tinder in recent years. That relationship may have helped in identifying Khosrowshahi as a candidate. His financial background could prove useful for Uber, which is currently without a chief financial officer. Khosrowshahi shares some similarities with his predecessor, including a fascination with self-driving cars he tweeted in his enthusiasm for Google’s autonomous vehicle and an interest in on-demand transportation he personally invested in on-demand trucking company Convoy in July.
His experience at Expedia also mirrors some of the challenges Uber has come up against. Expedia has so far fended off Priceline, Airbnb and Google, which have increasingly encroached on its travel and lodging booking business.
