    Make Sure Uber Fires That Rude Red! 


    “We aim to provide a reliable service to everyone who uses Uber…”

    “….We have reached out to both the rider and the driver, and continue to look into this,” a spokeswoman for the ride-sharing and food-delivery company wrote in a statement.

    ‘Reaching out’ is simply not good enough, unless Uber is going to grab the obnoxious leftist bigot and shake him till his handful of brain cells rattle.

    The rude red rat refused to do his job, leaving some young Americans stranded on a Washington DC sidewalk for no reason other than that they were wearing Trump MAGA hats.

    Hardly the first news of asinine anti-Trump discrimination!

    Pluck The Red Hen – Call Discrimination Out! 

    But the trouble is, these reports of anti-social pinko creeps get good coverage to start with, but then there’s no follow-up, to make sure this swine is sacked and shamed…

    …which, given the Uber CEO’s own leftist allegiance –Uber CEO: Trump administration is ruining the American Dream–  is hardly a foregone conclusion.

    I am therefore urging American readers – and why not all readers in all countries where Uber operates? – to make their views known to Uber…

    What is the best way to contact Uber CEO? –

    …and ask for an assurance that the far-left oaf is out of a job and will never be re-hired.

    The victim of his bigotry asks for no less, viz. an apology and for the driver to be banned from using the Uber app to pick up passengers.

      Great idea.
      You are right about the way the news just rushes along and the guilty get away with things because we cant keep track of the story.

      Uber no longer are available here in Jakarta, Ross.
      But even so, I agree with you on this.
      If Ithey offer a service, their drivers should never be vetting customers politics,

      I like your plan.
      Much better than just sit back and shake our heads.

      I will be very interested how Uber respond to anybody who does contact them on this.
      My guess is that they will stonewall and we may find this rogue driver is still driving for Uber and still discriminating.

    Monopoli Taksi Bali? Ayo, Pak Presiden – Smash The Ngurah Rai Racket! 


    Taksi_blue_bird  \

    Bluebirds are usually reliably metered

    0000000000000000000

    The disgusting rip-off fares charged by many of the taxi-drivers who hang about Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport are back in the news again, a report from that useful Bali website confirming that the monopoly exploiting arrivals there are demanding sums substantially higher than the cost of a metered-taxi traveling the same distance.http://www.balidiscovery.com.

    Shameless-Exploitation

    =

    Some of you may be wondering if this rapacity could be perpetrated with impunity unless there were powerful backing from somebody higher up the ranks of airport power. And if so, why are the cops not raiding the airport and rounding up the scurvy knaves responsible?

    Angkasa Pura I, the managers of the Bali Airport, have granted an exclusive monopoly to the Ngurah Rai Taxi Cooperative…

    ...despite such a monopoly arrangement and any limitation on free trade being expressly forbidden by the anti-monopoly law No. 5 of 1999.

    I addressed my headline to President Jokowi because I’m still convinced he’s a decent man at heart, despite much of the nonsense which has emerged from both his ministers and the DPR (parliament) here. I appreciate that a government as indifferent as the current one seems to be ( to tourism as an industry ) may not be overly concerned about the plight of innocent travellers who only want to enjoy a relaxing trip to Bali…Bingung Buaaanget! – Gimana Minum Bir Di Bali? 

    …but surely a word from Palace to Police about corruption  – and/or coercion by cabbies  – would not be too much to ask.

    … in addition, those using the taxis in late evening hours are coerced by drivers to pay even more than the already-high posted fares. 

    =====================

    • c7f1d-day11-evildead2 A rip-off ratbag cabbie?
    • ==============
    • One passenger told Tribun-Bali.com that a trip from the Airport to the nearby Dewi Ruci Monument costs Rp. 120,000 (US$9.25), a price substantially higher than what a taxi using a meter would charge. 
    That’s bloody outrageous.
    I’ve posted on this again and again.    

    Bali Cops Corral ‘Gypsy’ Cabs – So When Will The ‘Regulars’ Charge Fair Fares? 

    Beautiful Bali’s Criminal Cabbies – Warning! 

    If you walk past the sleazy ratbags soliciting huge sums, as far as the exit from the airport, you can get a decent cabbie who will either have a meter, like the usually good Bluebirds, or will bargain with you. 

    One expatriate resident of Bali wrote to Bali Update to complain of a “Taxi Mafia” where air passengers arriving on late flights discover that the Ngurah Rai Taxi Booth is closed and the lack of a signage listing the approved tariffs to various destinations. The same reader said taxis standing by late at night demand a fare of Rp 350,000 (US$27) or more for a ride to nearby Legian.

    Outrageous! 

    Rp.50,000 is a fair fare to Legian or Kuta. Get a taxi outside the rip-off zone. Give him a tip (10 %) and he’ll be happy enough.

    But that’s not so easy if you have a bunch of kids and all that luggage.

    And here’s the rub. They recently allowed, at last, a proper airport bus service. 

    ================

    sarbagita bus

    ================  
    Seemingly by design, passengers who opt to avoid the taxis and take theTrans Sarbagita Bus System are compelled to walk a distance of more than 500 meters to wait an indeterminate amount of time for the next bus to depart.

      How true.
      There used to be a public angkot-type bus went along that airport road, under 5000 to Kuta, but I haven’t seen one for a while.
      Those airport taxis are sharks.
