IMHO after the Taxi Companies' Law Council submits their appeal, I wouldn't be surprised if this same Council works to strike a behind the scene deal with Uber to become an "Uber T" Partner similar to NY but now into CT. I believe that I've seen Taxi Service canvassing Uber, Lyft, and Yellow Cab. They just increased the propensity by 66% in getting a call. So what if any, are the forecasted repercussions to us UberX Drivers in CT? Either things stay status-quo (Which I doubt because though a churn of drivers exist, a net-gain in drivers also exists), The Appeal succeeds and we lose, or Uber allows the Taxi Companies to join in as an Uber T Service (Which will potentially decrease our rider base by 50%). The last one could be devastating to our current situation which is (At least in the Hartford and Central CT areas) where the market demand remains the same but diluted with additional UberX Drivers and then possibly Uber T's. Either way we'll end up with a smaller piece of the same pie. Just my opinion, I could be wrong <Dennis Miller>
Very interesting, I never thought about that possibility. I used to be in the CT taxi business and I can tell you that there is very little cooperation among the individual companies. Some of them have grudges with each other reminiscent of the Hatfields and MCCoys. I can't imagine them all agreeing to such an arrangement but you never know.
