Should I hire an Uber car or a Taxi?
That’s probably the worst cause of confusion these days.
Normally, people are choosing Uber more than the good old taxi service.
The people who are advocating for Uber saying taxi is a bit more slow providing an specific time as to when will the taxi driver will pick the passenger up. When you call for a taxi many taxi companies will contact a driver nearby to go and pick the person which seem a bit tedious, the main taxi office works like a middleman.
So most of the time, there is a gap between communications. Having that in mind Uber came with making the service faster by using the application and contacting the driver directly or hiring the driver directly using the Uber application.
That seems to be one of the main reason people are opting for the Uber service.
But is this really that simple? Apparently, the Uber Service connects you to the available cars near you, and if you use their service they charge you and the driver a minimum amount.
Is that all?
Well, I am a skeptical by nature. So I went on a thorough research about this Uber vs Taxi dilemma.
At first, I couldn’t find any negative effects on the Uber service, it seem that there were only good and positive reviews but after looking closer and deeper you see that not everything is as pink as it seems.
Let me share what I found.
One of the main reasons people are starting to go back to hire a taxi is when a passenger forgets stuff on the car, the taxi company, will store it for you and contact you, if you have forgotten about it totally. And at least there is a real person to whom you can contact and seek for help.
But who will I contact on the Uber service in case I forget an item. Takes a lot of time and effort to get the right car from where you contract the service.
The next question about Uber Service is anybody with a “clean” record can register to be an Uber driver without the professional experience than a Taxi driver must have. Any maniac started with a clean record, who can guarantee the safety and security of the passengers?
Some may say I am overstating, but let me ask you people, is it so impossible?
Think hard. Think very hard. It’s your life I’m talking about.
Through Uber Service you are vesting your responsibility to an unknown person who is accountable to no one. If you ask me, I wouldn’t prefer this kind of service. May be I am old-fashioned, but the taxi services are still the best for me.
