Uber taxis a good service

WE recently used Uber taxis to and from airports and were very impressed.

It was much cheaper than regular taxis, no cash changes hands, no tip is expected, we knew exactly where the taxi was and how long it would be and could even talk to the driver first.

Cars were clean and drivers well-mannered.

Governments are wasting our money on lawyers to fight Uber – it’s now a $50 billion company.

Instead, governments should look at ways they can compensate taxi licensees whose licences must be crashing in value.

Uber provides employment and is good for everyone.
