    I think is admirable that you at least have an idea what is going on. The transportation professionals here in Tampa feel sold out especially by the mayor of Tampa Bob Buckhorn who has used Uber before they were even legal. The point is the press is biased and they have never mentioned the hundreds maybe thousands of drivers who lost they're living to Uber and Lyft while we still have to folk over thousands of dollars for insurance and licensing fees. Not to mention the support industry of call takers, dispatchers and mechanics. Tampa Bay Times is now an monopoly with no credit. They print what the editor says to print. Exception to that is Romano Thanks
