    UBER and other RIDE SHARE COMPANIES are ILLEGAL RIDE SHARE OPERATORS Because they are doing it for PROFIT. RIDE SHARE PROGRAMS were designed mainly for non professional / commerical people travelling in the same direction, from home to work and return, by another non professional / commerical drivers that was going the same direction. UBER and other RIDE SHARE COMPANIES are providing these services by professional / commerical drivers and using non commerical vehicles for FOR-HIRE purposes, which is a called a TAXI SERVICE and NOT a RIDE SHARE PROGRAM
