For all the hand-wringing about Uber’s solvency and ability to turn a profit, we have to admit that Uber has done an incredible job of re-shaping the ridesharing industry. From upending the taxi system to battling (and winning, in most cases) local government regulations, Uber has incredible staying presence. However, with some investors turning on Uber, could this be its final stand? Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince covers the legal challenges facing Uber internally, and whether or not Uber will be able to fight off these challenges.
It’s been a busy week for Uber! Travis is accused of fraud, yet is trying to rehabilitate his image, and drivers are coming up with new creative ways to make more money. Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince covers the challenges facing Travis and Xchange leasing, and how some Uber drivers are creatively (illegally) coming up with ways to make a lot of extra money.
It looks like Uber’s search for a new CEO is not going so well, but the difficulty in finding a replacement (if that’s truly the case) for Travis looks to be more complicated than just “internal divisions.” Could Travis come back to Uber in some capacity? Is he engineering his re-hiring? In today’s round up, senior RSG contributor John Ince covers the hold up for finding a TK replacement, an article about Uber being “too expensive” for passengers, and Uber cars catching fire.
Today’s round up begs a lot of big questions about the future of Uber (and Lyft), but also some smaller, funnier questions. RSG contributor John Ince tackles these questions and more in today’s round up, where he covers Lyft’s self-driving cars plan, how companies are funding Uber’s rivals, and which fast food company is more popular for drivers.
There’s a lot going on in the world of rideshare this week! Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince covers Uber’s potential stock sale, expansion in other countries, a lawsuit in South Africa that could affect pending lawsuits in the US, and more.
