    The end is near or a vary sizable reduction for uber. There is no way that they can afford to keep that many company divers and still make a profit like they've been doing. Add that to the fact that their losing 5% of their business everyday to their own drivers with cell phones, "Hey just call me direct next time no need for the app". Many local governments haven't felt the lost of revenue from taxi company's as of yet but wait until those cab company's start returning those permits because they can no longer afford to keep them.
