With the rise of Uber, how long do Black Cabs have left?

Recommended Posts

Luuk Jacobs

There is another element to it than the the sharing of it and there is a valid question around the fact if an ueber driver is an employee of ueber or an independent. The big value of Ueber is in the app not its individual drivers and there is something to say for the fact that an Ueber driver can not make a decent living out of it.

The point remains definitely that the black cabs need to innovate beyond their good looking and well equipped new cabs and need to address the need in the market which is next to a price point also the ease of getting a cab in front your door at the time you have booked them or almost direct on demand. If not than there is only the “luxury” market left for them and there would be to many in that case

      Here is a really interesting breakdown from Stack Overflow that shows the most in use (or at least talked about) technologies across 4 different cities - London, New York, San Francisco and Bangalore.
      It shows that in New York, and in particular London, skills on Microsoft platforms are a lot more dominant - presumably because of their association with Financial Services.
      Thanks to @Ruben Lara for sharing this with me.
