Taxi problems...the never ending story of Capital District taxi discontent. Just signed up for "Uber" intending to use it when visiting my son in LA. Not available in the Cap. Distr. yet unless according to their website enough people sign up. Can't get any worse then the cab service that we have and is a great resource for everyone to use and make some money as a driver!
Let's UBER !
