I just want to get from point A to point B

42 year old male, married with 2 kids, 2 dogs and 1 cat. I drive a car and sometimes catch cabs, uber, buses, trains, planes and a ferry or 2. Experiences have been on either end of the spectrum for all of the above. All I want as a consumer is to get where I need to at a reasonable cost. Everything else is irrelevant to me. If it's tough being a cabby then do something else. If it's tough driving for uber then do something else. If none of the transportation avenues are available to me tomorrow, I will find something else. Thanks Joe

Not sure what the original poster is getting at?

It sounds to me like you are saying 'PUT UP OR SHUT UP'.
Not at all I,m prepared to pay for a service. The consumer sets the price point in an open market. Maybe the way to have grievances actioned is to inform the consumer and have them put pressures on the companies. Uber and taxis will always find drivers to exploit but maybe if consumers are made aware of the work conditions they can apply pressure. Not looking for an argument just a perspective from a normal bloke who didn't even know about these issues until stumbling on this forum.
But as a customer would you be okay with the driver lecturing you about his Uber woes? It sounds like you would prefer to get from A to B without the conversation.
Most drivers just want to take people from A to B as well but we come accross issues:
• Having to wait up to 5 minutes for rider to show up.
• Riders that are rude or ask too many personal questions
• Riders that are racist
• Riders that want more than an A to B service at a budget price.
