I'll let you in on a secret: you can hate "real" taxi services for running a price kartel and refusing to modernize, AND hate @Uber@twitter.com and @lyft@twitter.com for making traffic substantially worse, not better. It's not one or the other: they're both terrible industries.

You can be the nicest cabby, or the best "ride hailing" driver, but you're still contributing to making more people's lives worse than you're making them better. You know who are the best cabbies? Bus drivers. Want to actually make a difference? Apply for transit service.

The pay's not even worse, but you get benefits.
