And this come by what Authority? Do you not think that a partnership with Uber will prevent that from being the case?intact insurance will be charging uber drivers 6000-10000 a year for commercial insurance. what will happen next, uber driver will cease to drive and bye bye uber.
Really? You think this is why governments are after them? I could write a list of 20 things that the government goes after Uber. And it's not taxes. Although governments do want their cut for operating in their city.remember uber pays no tax so that's why government is after them.
I believe in the city setting minimum/maximum rates, setting a maximum amount of drivers that can be online in a given area, and having the required coverage for insurance (whether that comes from Uber or a Hybrid personal policy) when it comes to regulations for both Taxi/TNCsTo regulate the same as the Taxi system is not the right solution. Hell the way the Taxi system is regulated is not the right solation.
Less regulations and requirements means lower fares. It's quite simple.
I think that's fair. Minimum and maximum is a good thing for consumers and drivers. Long as there was a review process where you can do changes at any time with 3 months notice. And you could put it to a vote by the drivers.I believe in the city setting minimum/maximum rates, setting a maximum amount of drivers that can be online in a given area, and having the required coverage for insurance (whether that comes from Uber or a Hybrid personal policy) when it comes to regulations for both Taxi/TNCs
No one I going to step aside. Your industry is now driven by the people who were fed up with the so called PROFFESIONAL Service of a Taxi. And just because you left that Taxi plate behind you to go do Uber, if your attitude is the same you won't last long at that either.I happy to see my industry that i love so much doing the right thing,it was nice for alot of people moonlighting as a Taxi & limo proffesional,but now its time to step aside and let us continue with our chosen proffession. I would have no problem paying 6k for insurance,because less drivers will be on the road and demand will be outrageous for those willing to say YES I AM A PROFFESIONAL UBER DRIVER & YES I DO THIS FULL TIME. My other job real estate broker is part time.
We are stuck with incompetent, glump TaxisUber will be forced into NYC style licensing in Toronto.driver course. Drug test. Car checks. +++. uber agreed because NYC is NYC.
They have to be at the centre of the universe.
They don't have to be inToronto. They won't either. They will leave soon. Announced fast , cleaned up quick. To send message.
Being discussed now with law firm
Great service is being around to give them that service consistantly everyday not just when it fits your schedule or when its convient to you.I not a taxi driver anymore i drive for uber full time.Without fulltime daily drivers ubers service would be inconsistant and people would go elsewhere.I gross 5k monthly and thats going up during winter.Your few trips here and there is a drop in da bucket too much typing not enough driving.Also uber wants full time serious drivers just look at New York & other well progressed citysNo one I going to step aside.

Funny how you tell us to step aside. But customers have chosen for you to step aside and let real everyday non industry people drive them around. Could be time for you to make your Real Estate career your new full time profession before that bubble bursts.
Till then I will continue to give people great service so they will never go back to Taxi's. Let that industry burry themselves with their own ignorance.
