I probably shouldnt have said this, (UBER)

Post by Clueless on Sun Apr 02, 2017 7:57 am

I'm at LAX yesterday and there was a network error so no Uber, had to take a taxi.

Uber estimate $7-9 (3 minutes from LAX(.

Taxi $19, I was shocked. Driver said $15 minimum and $4 LAX fee.

I said "This is the reason Uber exists and why the taxi industry is dying."

I had no second choice so I took it. Driver was very nasty.

He needs to get himself a car that meets the Uber requirements and set out on a new path.

This is not intended to be a knock, but.....

These days if one considers a taxi ride of $19 NOB, especially in LA, to be shocking it only means one has not taken a taxi NOB for quite a while. Just saying.

Agree! When I left the Bay A 13 years ago, I couldn't take a cab anywhere for less than 50 bux. I can only imagine now.

UBER rocks.

You're right, it's been a long time since I had to take a taxi NOB.

My issue was the minimum $15 charge even for one block. This was "Yellow Cab."

No wonder the taxi industry NOB is going downhill.

Sorry, but I still think you should be grateful he took your fare at all rather than complaining. I don't blame them for the $15 minimum, taxis have always had a minimum, he had to give up his place in line, and a possible good long fare, for your 'around the corner' $19 fare.
