Tampa and Miami classify ride-share as a limousine company. The rules are a $50 minimum, and 1 hour advance notification. Why? This rule is to protect taxi ccompanies and drivers, who've invested in medallions. Travis Kalanick says these rules are crazy. he says he is spending too much time fighting the officials in Florida. he says he would rather be at the Miami Shore Club. that is a swanky boutique hotel in South Beach. google it and see if you have the money to stay there.
As much as people say they like uber, they are contributing to the demise of a regulated industry that serves the general public. When the local Tampa news caster asked the Hillsborough County Commissioner if it was still legal for her to use uber, he tried to be polite about it. I am NOT polite about it. Your made up fake ass should be thrown in jail miss channel 8 news caster. sorry about mincing words.
