It seems Uber have a new guy running the show in Europe who is determined to back track on previous assertions that they would only use licensed vehicles and drivers in Ireland, mr Mc Gann has said they will soon launch a ride-share version of their App offering unlicensed cars and drivers.
its a very simplistic, dare I say childish way of doing business, similar to teenagers setting up an unlicensed radio station paying no royalties and then wondering why the legitimate operators have a problem with them selling cheap advertising slots.
Unfortunately taxi driving or operating a vehicle for hire and reward is a regulated business and Uber must operate within those regulations, anything other than that is unfair,
Given Mr McGanns recent comments, I’ve deleted their App from my phone and will be in touch shortly asking them to delete my account and any data they have about me.
