Uber Tests a Feature that Lets Some Los Angeles Drivers Move to a City with Reasonable Public Transportation
Los Angeles, CA
RIdeshare apps are all the rage in most major cities. Companies like Lyft and Uber lead the way and show no signs of slowing down. So, how does one of these powerhouses separate themselves from the field? “It’s simple really,” said Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi upon making the announcement that Uber plans to test a new feature that would allow some Los Angeles Drivers to just relocate to another city altogether. Ya know, a city with some sort of organized and functioning public transportation system?
With the announcement, other companies have followed Uber’s lead. Lyft, for example, is in the process of modernizing its app so that drivers in the Midwest don’t have to carry on a lengthy and meaningless conversation about Hockey every time a new customer enters their vehicle. Its clear change is on its way within the realm of the modern rideshare but this does bring about the question… does any sort of technological advancement that doesn’t focus on solving the climate crisis matter a single fucking bit?
No. No, they don’t.
This theory, of course, excludes Air Pods. How would we live without them really?
