But where Uber takes it one step further is they have turned a Bandit Taxi model and made it a “Just do it and hope for the best” kind of deal. While the driver takes bigger risks with Uber you are not making more than the average Taxi driver. You only real benefit is you can turn on and off at the drop of a hat. You cant do that with a Taxi. To make it work you got to complete out your 12 hour shift.
