Save Uber in Atlanta!

      Atlanta, United States

It’s no secret that Atlanta is a tough place to get around when you don’t have a car. It’s an understatement.  Recently a new concept emerged which brings job opportunities and gives Atlantans an alternative to our antiquated taxicab system.  It’s called Uber: an app for your smartphone which has streamlined the process of paying for a ride to and from anywhere in the metro area. Now you don’t have to find phone numbers for one of the multiple traditional taxi cab services. You don’t have stand in line and wait for a smelly cab with an impersonal driver. You don’t have to carry cash or guess how much a ride will cost.

By using the Uber app, a nice car is guaranteed minutes away after a few taps on your phone. Cash does not exchange hands and tipping is discouraged.

Recently, the taxicab industry successfully lobbied several Georgia State Representatives into introducing anti-consumer legislation aimed at stopping the current Uber model. HB #907 will take away our option for a reliable, alternative way of getting around the city.

We can’t allow the taxi industry to force its outdated service on the people of metro Atlanta. Please contact your local State Representative and urge them to vote NO on HB #907.

      Never heard of Uber but the next time I visited Atlanta I would LOVE the chance to be able to use this APP... It would be a terrible loss to Visitors to the great city of Atlanta...

      Uber provides safe, reliable rides. Courteous drivers. AND what about free enterprise--let the market decide and choose!

      Uber is a breath of fresh air. I never used car services before Uber because Taxi cabs were just that awful and unreliable.

      I find cabs unsanitary & the language barrier & rudeness just concern for money...plus they don't know the city cost you tons of money. Ubers are from the city so its easier & cheaper & safer & cleaner. Much more pleasant experience
