Lyft and Uber Get Cab Companies into Overdrive to Improve Service

taxi race

Uber and Lyft apps for car sharing have threatened traditional cabbies, and D.C. is making bold moves to improve service, including having 65 cabs on the road by October 1st which will be wheelchair accessible. In addition to improving services for the disabled, many D.C. cabbies will wear uniforms and will be informed through the internet about major events that will require a large number of cabs.

In the past, taxi drivers had to rely on word of mouth or printed ads to find out about events that have hundreds of people who require transportation services. With the new technology, taxi drivers will be able to target places with the greatest demand.

Uber and Lyft have created technologies that are literally disruptive, and it is likely that taxi drivers in other cities will upgrade their services, given the cut-throat competition.
