Today on Your Call: Will ride-sharing services mean the end of the taxicab?

Oct 7, 2013


On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the explosion of Lyft, SideCar, Uber and other tech-enabled ride share companies. California recently became the first state in the country to legalize and regulate ride-sharing services. How are they competing with taxis and how are they affecting taxi drivers? Do you call for a cab or use your Smartphone app to get a ride? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Barry Korengold, San Francisco taxi driver and president of the San Francisco Cab Drivers Association
