Ola / Uber vs rickshaws in mumbai - August 28th, 2016

Forwarded message

Yesterday morning, I asked an auto rickshaw driver if he will take me to Seven Bungalows. As usual, he refused, and just stood there. Then I asked another passing auto rickshaw...he too refused and ran off. I asked a third one, he did not even bother to stop. Still, clinging on to dear hope, I requested one more empty auto...he just went off even without bothering to say "No".

Then I turned towards the first auto guy, who was standing there watching my futile efforts nonchalantly. I showed him my Uber app, and booked a cab within 30 secs, though with a nominal surge. Then I told him in Hindi that he should remember the past 10 minutes that he saw, when the auto unions go on strike this Monday. I tried 4 autos and then booked an Uber at surge price.

Inferences for the moron(s):

1. The business that the autos lose is not because of Uber/Ola. The fact is that the business that Uber/Ola get is because of the auto rickshaw drivers.

2. A thing the auto guys need to remember - A Mumbaikar has enough money, but no time. So he will take an Uber immediately if you idiots waste his time.

3. Begging every morning for Auto guys to do their duties is not a Mumbaikar's idea of starting his day.

4. Union's won't get you your passengers back. Commitment will. And yes....strikes will just drive the customers further away from you, morons.

And finally....an inference for the Government. Especially IF YOU, MY FRIEND, SHARE THIS POST :

If the government bows to the unions pressure for the votebank of autowallahs (half of them are anyway illegal)...you lose my vote for sure...and I am a part of that largely ignored but nevertheless huge votebank called COMMON MAN....whom the Congress just noticed in the last elections.

- A Mumbaikar.🙏

Open letter to Auto-rickshaw drivers in Mumbai who went on strike today.

Dear autowallaahs,
Pls stay on a permanent strike. Mumbai without you looks really serene and peaceful. Ur absence only adds to mumbai's beauty. U r doing no favour to passengers by carrying them. It's ur job and u get paid for it. Actually we r better off without you in times where private cabs r much more convenient and cost effective and cars eat much less amount of petrol than your meters. U should actually send ur meters to Olympics next time. Maybe dey can get us gold. But leave us and our peaceful roads alone. Get lost. We can do just fine, actually better, without your ego.

I think uber is much better than ola at service delivery. Ola has to ramp up service quality.
