Re: Everyone likes to hate on Uber
They've set up a German HQ here in Düsseldorf, though they also have something in Berlin, inevitably, but I can't remember seeing any driving around. There were some ads for a while.
Seeing as ordering a taxi here has for years been as difficult as dialing 33333 or 99999, it's difficult to see what they really bring to the party. And now we have the Taxi Deutschland app for location-based pick-ups. Just checked the price calculator and it's no cheaper than using a normal cab. Then again Germany doesn't have the same restrictive practices for taxis as the UK or the US do.
