Letter: Buffalo will benefit from Uber service

Buffalo will benefit from Uber service

Here’s why Buffalo would benefit from Uber service: Our existing livery system is terrible. In fairness, it is not quite as terrible as the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, but it is expensive and cumbersome.

You can’t just hail a cab off the street unless you happen to be at one of the two cabstands in the city, so as a practical matter the taxi experience and the Uber experience are the same – except one is less expensive.

That makes the choice pretty obvious to me.
