Uber is not a better business model, it is no business model. Its a simple circumvention of the laws. If Uber wants to behave like a Taxi then they will need to play by the Taxi Commissions rules. Simple fact.

That's what the Taxi Commission is upset about, they have to meet certain qualities and standards which contribute to the cost of their fare. Uber who circumvents those standard protocols does not suffer the same fate. Regulate the two on an equal playing field (they're offering an identical service after all) and there will be next to no cost difference between the two.

them getting in early does help, although RAM is losing out here they could still sell fleet versions to other taxi companies elsewhere

The NYC Taxi commission doesn't believe in fair, Medallions cost north of $1 Million because of artificial scarcity. Thats why Uber has become so controversial as of late... I don't really care for Uber or its circumvention of the rules, but I do applaud that it will force the Taxi industry to reformat their operations...

Holla What exactly do you mean? It seems to me that Nissan has the whole NYC taxi industry wrapped up. How do you think that Ram is going to get in on it? What does Ram have that would make a good taxi anyway?
