New York Uber Drivers Protest Rate Cuts
Men stand in front of a Uber sign as drivers protest the company's recent fare cuts and go on strike in front of the car service's New York offices on February 1, 2016 in New York City. The drivers say Uber continues to cut into their earnings without cutting into its own take from each ride. In claiming fare reduction would mean more work for drivers, the San Francisco based company cut its prices by 15 percent last week.

At the moment, Uber and Lyft are the most-sought-after rental cars in the market for this area.

Mostly, they were refused or canceled when hailing a cab due to their color.

Uber and Lyft response letter were just made public, and every detail was served. On the letter, they highlighted their tight measures regarding discrimination. Likewise, it also showed the problem's root cause which is the driver's uncontrollable intent.

Accordingly, Uber and Lyft ride-hailing giants made sure that any drivers who will deny anyone a ride because of their color, religion, gender or anything will be chop off. Definitely, the companies don't tolerate "racism discrimination," and it's their mission to serve everyone.

In a report by Mercury News, CEO Logan Green was noted: "Lyft takes allegations of discrimination extremely seriously." He adds, "Any discrepancy of service experienced by passengers due to race is unacceptable." Indeed, this is the same with Uber, in fact, they are reportedly experimenting ways now to further avoid the conflicts.

Definitely, this "Uber & Lyft Travel News" is fairly important for every vacationer. Anyone goes off on a trip, may it be of any race. It's inescapable that they will eventually hail a cab some time, so taking further caution is significant. For latest news and updates, stay tuned in Travelers Today.
