Response to Demonaut (Original post)

13. Taxi service in many cities has sucked for DECADES.

And it has been a mess of back-scratching and cronyism. Would any of the parties enjoying the perks of these arrangements benefiting all concerned except the actual consumer, have ever even paid a bit of attention to it if it wasn't for these annoying, pesky, "disruptive" silicon valley libertarian upstarts?


No, no fucking way.

So to all the people pissing and moaning about Uber and Lyft, give me a break. I've lived enough cities where the taxi service was atrocious to nonexistent. Seems to me the defenders of the status quo had their chance to fix it, and didn't.
