    houston limousine operators networking group SEPTEMBER MEETING Wednesday, 09/25/2013, 11:30 AM Little Napoli Restaurant 6445 Westheimer (Near Voss) Main Topic: City of Houston Changes to the Taxi and Limousine Ordinance Why you should attend: UBER is working overtime twisting every politician and regulator arm they can find. If they succeed, 70% OF YOU READING THIS E MAIL WILL BE OUT OF BUSINESS AND ON FOOD STAMPS IN LESS THAN A YEAR. UBER TRASHES DALLAS LIMO INDUSTRY Dallas is the most unregulated Limo Market of any big city in the USA today. They have no minimum fare, you can start a company with one old Town Car and they have no dress code for chauffeurs. (I have a picture of a Town Car doing an UBER pickup at a five star hotel in Dallas. The chauffeur is about 450 pounds and is attired in something similar to pajamas). Dallas was a big plump turkey just waiting to be plucked by a predatory vulture like UBER. They came in and signed almost everybody up. They are doing Town Car transfers anywhere in downtown for $10 and airport runs for $22. That is cheaper than taxi fare. John Q. Public is not stupid. Town Car transfers are a commodity. They will go with whoever has the cheapest price. End of story. Using an APP for a Town Car or taxi is essentially a street hail. Those are illegal for both Town Cars and taxis in Houston. (That could change) Once John Q. Public gets addicted to UBER, they will never go back to phone calls and e-mails. Dallas operators are slaves to the three billion dollar UBER empire (I owe my soul to the company store!- Elvis) and are running their cars into the ground at giveaway prices. BOTTOM LINE: UBER HAS HOUSTON IN ITS CROSSHAIRS AND THEY WANT ALL YOUR CLIENTS. COME TO THE MEETING TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU CAN DO. YOU CAN NOT SIT THIS ONE OUT. UBER IS COMING FOR YOU. ---------------------------------------------- CITY COUNCIL 101 You MUST LEARN who is on City
