The Great Uber Crisis of 2021
So as discussed on another thread, it costs around $100 to go from Manhattan to JFK but in my shitty city (let's call it Boston) you legit cannot get a Lyft or Uber during prime hours. If you need a ride at 1 AM you better be able to make the walk, wave a taxi, or sleep on a couch. So I get it from the driver's perspective but it has really made me appreciate the ability to get picked up whenever I made a request. I don't feel great about the outlook of Uber given their standoff with drivers and find most taxi drivers airport dependent and lazy. Anyone have thoughts on the outlook of ride share in any city that is not NYC?

"Every person in this country has driven for them or knows someone who has. You can only screw over so many people before word travels! It's a business model that only works for the driver on a short-term basis. I've never seen a business that has such a huge turnover ratio. They have exhausted theirs driver supply. This day was a long time coming."
