Every one wanted that wonderful innovative replacement for the terrible over regulated taxis.
And then have a big winge when 'market forces' start 'ripping them off'. The public clamoured for deregulated taxi service and now they have it, are squealing.
I note Uber and their competitors in multiple markets are trying to stich up deals with government transport departments to provide (tax payer funded services. They want a piece of that apparent largess we lavish on public transport.
Waiting for them to bid on a light rail line and then shift it's fares to 'demand management' pricing. :-)
