Whose Side Are You On? Uber Or Montreal Taxis
This town ain't big enough for both of them.
Taxi and Ubers are having a bit of a feud. Taxis were pissed off because they spent all this money on their permits and then magically, overnight anyone with a car could do what they do. First the taxi drivers were in denial and figured this was a just a gimmick that would fade away. When that didn't happen, they asked the city to step in. When that didn't help, they threatened legal action. But none of that made a difference and now it looks like Uber cars are here to stay.
Some taxi drivers accuse the Uber cars of "stealing" their customers and, but if a customer specifically calls for an Uber car, was it really the taxi's client in the first place?
Some say this is a good thing because now taxis will have to improve their service in order to keep their clients, other say it's unfair and that Uber should be illegal.
What about you?
