Consider how Uber is distinct from traditional taxi services in terms of price, safety, and the creation of new industries that have benefited not just the United States but the entire world.
They decided against entering the taxi industry and instead sought to change the way the market functioned.
There is almost always an available Uber nearby instead of hoping for a large cab or calling ten different stations to find one taxi. This is because people needed jobs. The world has recently seen a massive influx of new taxi drivers.
With Uber, you can choose a car based on your group’s size, read reviews of your potential driver in advance, get a rough estimate of your fare, and track your location on a map.
