I love the convenience and level of service being provided (typically) – but the industry needs to mature

Taxis are horrible and have a whole host of issues of their own, but the fact that there are two sets of models providing the exact same service at the end of the day with two different cost structures and legal requirements doesn’t quite add up. Regulate them all on a level playing field (wherever that may end up) and let them have at it.

Uber actually changed their insurance policy starting where they cover drivers at all times once they go online eg going to pick up a passenger or look for fares.

It’ll be interesting to see how things pan out! The accident risk is a real one that people need to factor in.

A few months ago I know they announced a partnership with Metromile to offer drivers coverage through them and avoid any policy holes – but haven’t heard much of it since.
