TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! UBER ALLES KANSAS CITY?!? BILL GEORGE BLASTS ANOTHER GYPSY CAB RIDE SHARE!!!



Once again, our blog community proved ahead of the game when it comes to the current Kansas City ride share controversy. Last week we warned about Uber showing up in town, actually we were tracking this Internets taxi service last year.

Here's a look at the best mainstream media take on Uber's Kansas City opening: uberX enters Kansas City area, city leaders want company to abide by rules

Better than that . . . We've got a FIRST look at the service in action.

Check it:



Taxi industry insiders have been lighting up ride-share services with "Don't ride with stranger" rhetoric but it's kind of obvious this Internets drive-by hookup just seems a bit to rachet to trust . . . Even if she looks like a perfectly nice lady.

A taxi industry expert advises:

"Checked out UberX tonight. Here's the driver they were going to send. In her Ford F150. I think zTrip will be fine."

Moreover . . .

Our skepticism about Kansas City ride sharing was kinda confirmed by a bit of news regarding uber and a revelation that they're not really as "up with the people" as some might suggest . . . Check it:

Time.com: Nearly 100 disgruntled UberX drivers gathered outside Uber’s headquarters in San Francisco on Thursday to demand better pay and treatment from one of the sharing economy’s most visible companies.

And now the kicker . . .

ROUND II OF THIS KANSAS CITY RIDE-SHARE FIGHT FEATURES YELLOW CAB PUSH BACK!!!

Kansas City Transportation Group Boss Bill George Seyz: "UberX is Lyft without the mustache. Unlicensed. Uninsured. As long as they get legal we have no issues."

Meanwhile, Lyft is taking to Twitter to put social media pressure on Mayor Sly and it's lighting up his feed.

And so, yet another street fight takes hold in Kansas City over the weekend as local laws are put to the test amid Internets debate.

Neither Uber or Lyft give a shit about their drivers. I can assure you that.

Let the Police Department impound vehicles belonging to Lyft and Uber drivers if they continue to violate the city's regulations for vehicles for hire, such as taxis and limos.

Google is one of the VC's funding this parasite outfit. Maybe Uber should put rainbow bunnies on the grill and give out ice cream sandwiches.

Yes. Thanks for getting Fiber so we can sit and watch you upload your ID, credit card info, reveal your personal habits, and all the other things you would normally consider private and keep to yourself so we can sell it.

Appreciate it! Carry on!

They got anything besides an F-150 in the fleet?

Cab wars! And so what does private enterprise do when competition starts to happen?

They run to government for protection. Hypocrites all!

Hey why doesn't UBER and LYFT base themselves out of Overland Park. Hell 90 percent of the inner city people can just hug up to the green, yellow and metro and let the folks with the money support the new idea in transportation. Fuck KC and their leaching ass fees and taxes.

The Boomer generation can't die off soon enough for my liking.
There is a better wary of living and yet they will protect the status quo until their last dying agonal breath.
Fuck them.

Memo from the Prostituting Attorney's Office said...

Mean Jean Baker Peters announced today that anyone arrested for carjacking in Kansas City will also be ticked for running an illegal cab. She means business too!

You Millennials are really dumb freaking asses!

All you drunk drivers and haters need to calm down. I do not like to drive drunk. Yellow Cab is the only current option in almost every circumstance. Yellow is a disgrace. Filthy cabs, terrible drivers, unreliable...

Uber is a breath of fresh air for those of us that like to take cabs on a regular basis. I use them all the time in other cities. It is about time this city joins this century.

Long live Uber!

Your generation ran the world like a budget rent-a-car...hurry up and die off so we can try and salvage something your greed hasn't completely fucked over!

That and endless bullshit 4:25

Facebook vs a near total environmental wasteland?
Yep, I'd agree that you cockgobblers have got us beat in terms of legacy so far.

You burned through the gift of cheap fossil fuel like Tony Montana hoovered up cocaine...and you shitheels are STILL smug about your place in history.

Thanks for the beautiful American cities you're leaving us by the way. Real nice job there.
