The Uber application combines mobile technology with the taxi and sedan industry. No more fighting for a cab. No more wondering if it'll show up. No more anonymous drivers, no more weird back seat odors, and no more mad dashes to the cash machine.
Pro-consumer as they sound, the proposals to require that cabs all be painted the same color, start taking credit cards, and have better-trained drivers threaten to undermine what's arguably the best taxicab system in America.
