Uber Wins Dismissal of Lawsuit by Connecticut Taxi Companies ‹ Reader — WordPress.com.

uber is game changing the way people hire transport, and i think the licensed taxi mode of operation may be going out. technology is changing the way we do things.

and self drive cars , or even driverless cars may be another nail in the coffin for the licensed taxi trade using humans.

near my place there is a car space for a car from a company that is kept there when not in use.  u can hire it via phone, u can use it and return it to its parking space without interacting with another human being.

just as airbnb is changing the way people seek accommodation, the future is being changed now. it is exciting in a way.

yesterday, there was a long queue of passengers waiting at the taxi stand, by the side of victoria station. it was raining, so the taxis can not cope with the increased number of people wanting to ride. i thought here would be the chance for uber drivers to take advantage. as usual in life, there are times of famine of demand, or there are times of huge spike in demands… not enough to eat, or too much so cannot eat fast enough… as the chinese would say.
