I am not paid by Uber. Sorry. You might try responding to the argument that the existence of Uber means more people can get to safety instead of insulting the author. You might not think it’s worth it for a variety of reasons. That’s OK. Just tell me why it’s worth it rather than avoiding that reality. Or as I asked in the article, tell me your way of getting more people to safety. Maybe it’s better than letting Uber exist or charge higher prices.
