Uber is Font of Information — If on its own terms

Uber, which has recently had its NYC bases suspended for refusing to provide data to regulators, has released a font of information based on its own survey of drivers it employs.

South Carolina bans Uber, but Gov shows Luv

The Uber taxi service has been ordered by South Carolina regulators to cease operations in the state.

Meanwhile, Gov. Nikki Haley […]

A.P. Says ‘Ride-sharing’ it Ain’t!

Companies like Uber and Lyft have often referred to their services as “ride-sharing.”  But the Associated Press now has banned the term as inaccurate. Uber-like services, AP says, should be called “ride-hailing.”Why not just call them car services?  After all, the rides are not shared, they are paid for, like all other taxis. So you […]

A Shut and Open Case

The NYC TLC has suspended five of the six Uber-owned dispatch bases in the City. But just as quickly, it lifted the suspension when Uber appealed (or perhaps simply said it would appeal).  Two days ago the TLC suspended the bases after the company refused to submit their electronic trip records to the Taxi and Limousine […]
