What Transport London Banning Uber Means for Tech Startups

This is monumental news

Which has far ranging implication to other tech startups

This is what has happened to Uber

Uber have been punched in the face but customers have been knocked out

This is terrible news for consumers

But I believe this detrimentally effects the safety of passengers far more than it helps ensure it

To get home these women have to resort to getting in illegal unlicensed cabs who’s drivers have had no checks at all

Women feel safer taking Uber than any of the alternatives and this has to count for something

That is why this decision has been made

But consumer outrage will make sure it is changed back

Airbnb is likely to face the same problem in cities as well

Let’s just hope it lets us remain safer

While receive the new better service we are used to
