I Guess Regulated Taxi Fares Were Good, Akshually

Now that Uber has moved beyond its "losing money on every ride but making it up on volume" business model, I regularly see people complaining about their extreme fares. 

 I tried to warn you. 

 Anyway, normal taxis still operate some places, especially at airports and similar, and those fares are generally regulated still...

One of those subjects that used to enrage some people. "Sorry, my man, I think offering fares below cost while not obeying any taxi or labor regulations might cause some problems down the line..."

Yes some places weren't previously well-served by taxis, but some were.
