I like the chić feel of uber.
If taxies in Dallas were black, dripped in leather, and had personable drivers in a standard suit/tux uniform, I would totally use a taxi like that.
However the taxies in Dallas are old, disgusting and you have to wait forever.
Uber gives me a driver at my fingertips.
That's how the world is going, get over it.
The taxi cab drivers in Dallas also need to check their attitudes.
Customer service is key, and uber has that.
My uber drivers have always been nice, personable and knowledgeable about the cities I've used uber in.
I say Dallas gets rid or public taxies and just higher uber.
Plain and simple.
