Why Uber’s biggest rival is Lyft?

Uber, the biggest transportation network was found in 2009 by Travis Kalanick and Garret Camp and it is now operating in many countries across the globe. It poses a potential threat to many traditional yellow cabs and the taxi drivers are finding it difficult to make money off their professions.

The US based ride hailing company is also known for its long list of infamous controversies but it often does feel good campaigns to restore its lost fame, clever job Uber! It has offered many features like UberPool, UberX to grab attention from the media and the public. The company is also good with its marketing strategies and it has some catchy advertisements as well.

Uber’s net value worth was $51 billion in 2015, and the fact it was just launched in 2009 is just mind blowing! It is the most valuable company after Mark Zuckerberg‘s Facebook, poor guy, he must be whining about it now!  Lyft is also a ride hailing network that gives a tough competition to the US based company worth many billions.

Lyft has its own pool service and it is doing remarkably well among the public. According to sources, it is a lot safer than yellow cabs and even the mighty Uber. A research says several Uber users have shifted to Lyft because of Uber’s surge pricing and controversies.

Travis Kalanick is little intimidated by Lyft’s amazing growth in market revenue and is on plan to introduce more features to take down its rival!

Taxi drivers to step up the game to manage Uber’s competition

China-clamps-down-on-private-cars-charging-for-rides-Ubers-legal-status-currently-unclear-720x505

Recently, Uber has been emerging with force and is evolving as a dangerous threat to its contenders. Local taxi drivers are already feeling the heat from the mighty Uber. The US-based company is also famously known for its controversies across the globe. The company has implemented many features over the years. It is safer and a lot cheaper than not-so-trustworthy taxi drivers. People now prefer services from Uber and Lyft to any other local taxis.

Despite being the startup company that was found in 2009, it has already received its fame and popularity at the maximum peak. It has produced record breaking result by raising $50 billion. The company is causing nightmares to its local rivals by intensifying the competition. The local taxi drivers should now step up the game in order to get back on the track. It’s high time that drivers should stop indulging in fraudulent acts to stay in touch with its traditional customers. There are many elder citizens and traditional people who still prefer local taxis to Billion Dollar Company.

Uber has even launched Uber pool to provide cheaper rides to its dedicated users and it has created a lot of tension among its contenders. However, Uber’s surge pricing has been a letdown for its users due to which they eventually moved to traditional cabs. Also, the company does feel-good campaigns to raise funds for many causes and builds partnerships with huge brands for marketing purposes. Heartfelt condolence to the poor taxi drivers, no sarcasms guys!

Uber Relaunches Its Uber Black Service In Korea

uber korea

Uber relaunch its Uber Black private car service again in Korea after some period of uncertainty.

As Uber violated the transportation rules, it is threatened to some fine amount and jail sentence. Feeling guilty for this act, Uber discontinued its Black car service.

Korean officials strengthened Uber to limit its service to elderly, disabled and foreigners. This new rule restricted normal customers to go for a ride if they need and it is also a cause for Uber to discontinue its service in Korea.

Korean authorities declared its service to be illegal before its launch in Korea. The government is offering some rewards to citizens who are ready to report that the uber drivers are operating without a proper license for the taxi service which seems to be a move against Uber.

This rule allows kakao Talk, the top chat app in Korea to offer its private car service for its people in the city. Kakao now acts as a ride sharing Service Company which uses registered taxis. Now kakao is in a position to serve in Seoul with 200 drivers.

The UberX service has been closed down in Korea after it has been closed by the government force.

Seoul government considers Uber as a benefit for the citizens, especially during its service to busy spots.

As part of its opening of black car service in Korea, Uber informed that it will be working along with authorities to provide more options regarding transportation especially Friday and Saturday.

Uber is not so far war from the biggest fine

 penn

Uber is not so unfamiliar with the controversies. It has been fined so many times by many countries for violating the laws. One such is Pennsylvanian government has fined the company for operating within the city without acquiring the government’s permission. Pennsylvanian Public Utility Commission has decided to fine Uber with $50 million dollars. Similarly, California has also fined the company with $7 million dollars for not providing important information to the state’s bus and taxi regulator earlier this year. The Pennsylvanian government is also planning to charge the company with fine for ignoring requests from the State’s regulator. The Uber service was also charged fine for having uncertified drivers in the city. However, Uber has decided to fight back the charges imposed by the government. The fine recommended by the government is subject to PUC’s approval.

Uber’s rival Lyft faced a similar charge in the past, but the fine was much lesser than Uber’s. The Lyft service paid around $250,000 dollars as a charged fine. The severity of the Uber service’s fine is because of the company’s intentional defiance of the rules. And a serious penalty would put off future violations. Uber’s spokesperson said that the company is expecting the charge to get further down than the initial recommendation. Uber is very sure about not reducing its efforts to lower the charge. It is even putting up a great fight against the Pennsylvanian government. Let us hope the company comes up with a better petition to lift the charge!

Uber’s facing series of battles across the globe

The pair was accused of illegal taxi service allegations with fake database of taxi driver’s personal information. Currently, many protests are ongoing in Paris regarding this issue.

The Netherlands

The cops recently raided the offices in Holland and found out that it is operating against the country’s tax law with untrained and not so qualified drivers to offer a cheaper service.

Canada

Uber tried to break into the Vancouver taxi market but the firm met with resistance from cab drivers who did campaign against the firm in 2014. David Plouffe, Uber’s advisor recently told it was a shame Uber had not been welcomed. Toronto’s mayor John Tory said he’s slowly losing his interest on Uber.

India

Delhi banned Uber after a woman was sexually harassed by the taxi driver. The news got viral and many people turned against Uber, wanting it to get banned from the rest of the cities as well. Uber is still operating in Delhi despite the ban!

Uber Let Their Drivers Turn Their Personal Trip to Cash

uber-cash-explosion-logo--wso

Uber’s latest feature enables drivers to make money while driving to their own destination. The drivers are allowed to request for a drive from passengers nearby who are heading to the same direction. Destinations can be in San Francisco or nearby cities like Marin, San Jose and also apply to company’s UberBlack, UberX, UberPool and Uber Select services.

Drivers can able to use this option only twice per day but it is also very beneficial if they use it for their commute, to and from work. The ride sharing company is not the first to come up with this idea but also similar companies like Sidecar, which shifted its business to provide delivery service for other companies introduced this scheme in 2013.

Driver destination:

In 2014 November, Lyft introduced a scheme called ‘Driver destination’ where it created thousands of new connections through passengers heading the same direction for their ride. Lyfts new driver destination gives an opportunity for drivers to give a ride during their driving trips like commuting everyday to work, so that these drivers can change their solo drive to shared drives. Connecting these kinds of rides will also help reduce traffic. Driver destination makes it possible for more people to become  drivers.

Though this feature is made for the purpose of Uber’s part time drivers to make some bucks, it could also help some of those who work full time. The new feature follows Uber’s efforts around carpooling to make car trips as efficient as possible.
