Do you need a car service but don’t want to pay the outrageous cab fares? Well, if you live in Miami, Florida, Uber has come to you. Uber’s car service is available in 36 countries and 125 cities around the world. If you download the app, you can find a car ready and willing to drive you to your destination for a fraction of the cost of a yellow taxi cab.
Lyft, Uber’s competitor, was recently fined $22,000 for operating their car service in Miami and it looks like Uber may face a similar fine. Uber is ready to pay the fine and hopes for changes in regulations that would allow them to operate without being fined in the future.
Cab drivers in South Florida have mixed emotions about the Uber and Lyft services. Some will wait and see how the new services fare while others believe it will be a detriment to their professions. Uber hopes to increase competition and possibly help the cab drivers by reducing the cost of the $70 medallions cab driver must pay to work each day. Uber is offering free rides for the next two weeks to introduce their services.
