Taxi leaks will soon have a new regular contributor, but this time it's not a Taxi driver.
What we already know:
Many in the trade are asking the question "how can these drivers make a living, on such low pricing structure?
Well the truth is they can't....and they don't. In all honesty it's a myth that Uber operate at a fraction of the price or a real Taxi. Most of the drivers shift involves some form of surge pricing where the advertised price is doubled, trebled and even quadrupled on certain occasions.
Here is a screen shot of a recent journey undertaken in an Uber car. Waterloo station to Leicester sq, it went £32 using Uber's wonderful meter, with a 2.5 surge using a rip off route, suggested by uber nav. This is not uncommon, as seen on many posts on Twitter and FaceBook.
