Re: Welcome to Uber

Given that Uber as a corporation is villainous scum, and that they are predisposed to protect drivers who engage in even egregious actions, I think the "anonymous" cab is a much better bet.

Your area may differ, but in my area all cabs are licensed and tracked, and all cab drivers undergo background checks and must be recertified on a regular basis. Even as a customer, you can get live updates of where the cab is from the time it's dispatched to pick you up to the time you're dropped off.
