More like the countdown to the extinction of taxi cabs!!
El capitan i used to think like you also wanted the taxi to be in the brink of extincion so taxi companys will stop manipulating medallions and rasing leases now that are many players in the game . For now i can tell you that taxi companys are treating people a little better offer me a lease so i can back on my feet since uber let me down. The dainassours will only desapear is there is a true ice age , but Uber based on lies and abuses will only make the cabies stronger in wanting to bring more money home at the end thats all i care about to provide for my family.

Thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten about the meeting. Is Uber being discussed now? I find something else is being discussed on the web site.

From the Agenda, it seems they are only going to discuss Terms and Agreement about TNC's limit of liability imposed by the TNCs.

Uber-bots* rejoice!

The Commisioners today decided to replace a substantial sirloin steak with a plate of cotton candy.

Just a question of sealing the deal on September 17th.

It was interesting that the last meeting, 8/11, ended with a vote of 5-4 in favor of proceeding with the new ordinance. Yesterday's meeting ended with a 6-3 vote in favor.

I also thought it was clever (thinking outside the box) of the taxi supporters to get their point across in a 20-30 minute speach, instead of 2 minutes, by using 10-15 consecutive speakers making the same point with a continuous story. Because some of these speakers stuttered/paused with their reading, it was obvious they hadn't written it. They were straws for someone else.

Fifteen speakers and the majority of it was lifted directly from the suit filed by the LA and SF District Attorneys.

We made no attempt to hide the fact we were reading a script. In fact, we were allowed to speak in the specific order.

I was number ~~. How did I look?

You looked like a sad loser that cannot admit defeat. Best for you to find a real job, and leave the livery business to the Uber experts!!! Have a nice life. LMFAO

Since you appear to speak English it wouldn't be hard to pick which one you were.

Can't admit defeat? None of the "little people" involved are going to make any real money.

Travis bullies you guys so much it's to the point of being laughable.

Cab companies could care less about fixing internal issues despite decades of input from drivers.

Defeat? Look around, my friend. No one is coming out of this unscathed.

Taxis will be pretty much out of business a year from now, and uber will then raise rates. Not so hard to foresee.

In a perfect world but with the fighting with lyft to gain traction I don't see them raising rates. Lyft has been gaining, I used to go hours without a lyft ping now both are fairly consistent. I had more lyft than Uber rides Tuesday and more Uber yesterday.

There will always be a need for taxis especially as there are so many tourists here in Miami. What will people without credit cards, smart phones or data plans do? I still don't know how Uber handles the ADA issue.
