Uber drivers ...

.... regularly park illegally there and prevent buses from pulling up to the curb to allow easier access for passengers. I’m glad to see an Uber out of commission. What dumbass!
I wonder how the woman who hit is doing.

... no parking zone T stop where Ubers congregate all the time and prevent the Silver Line and buses from being able to lower to the curb and allow passengers to board and descend safely. This is particularly hard on disabled passengers.

Easier to steal an Uber

Much easier to steal a vehicle that is illegally parked with the engine running and keys in the vehicle while Ms. or Mr. Special Working Driver! runs into the store for a pack o'ciggies.
