    The phrase " uber- who is driving you?" A transportation company hires people that are qualified to drive the vehicles and understand customer service and customer safety.... In the end, the transportation business most important asset is not the new vehicle but the chauffeur/driver that the customer/client comes in contact with.. Ubers rating system is flawed since most people would feel sorry for the person driving them and would not want to hurt their ability to earn income for their household.
