@merusdraconis Patrick is correct,and you don't know what you're talking about. If consumers feel the surge pricing is too high,they'll choose not to use the service. To call it a ripoff is total nonsense. Considering the overwhelmingly positive response to Uber in other cities,consumers don't consider the surge pricing excessive.
The unethical and unconstitiutional government-protected taxi cartel is the one ripping off consumers. They've been able to keep their racket running by lobbying(paying off)corrupt politicians. Not only are consumers cheated,but so are people who dream of owning their taxi but are denied their right to go into business for themselves by a corrupt government.
Abolish all taxi medallions and let the consumer decide how many taxis a city should have. That's the way a free country is supposed to act.
