Uber has been a life saver. I cannot waste time waiting for over crowded buses or yellow cabs that are basically run down cars with a driver that is rude and nasty in top of being 40-50min late. Since we as the consumer are the ones knowing requesting rides like Uber, it should be the consumer choice to choose their desired mode of transportation. I have been a consistent Uber passenger since October of 2014; I can honestly say, I have no regrets or anything negative to say about its drivers not the company. It should not be an issue to pass any laws allowing good/licensed drivers to offer their time and their own vehicle as transportation. We are all just making friends and helping with has money.
