It’s a rainy morning in Wellington. There have been crashes on my road to work. The roads are full.
Uber wanted to charge me $84 to get to work by 9am. The usual price is $21. So I’m going to Zoom in for the 9am and come in after that when, I expect, prices will be more sensible. (Assuming I still have a job: missing the 9am might be a bigger deal than I think.)
So: one less road user at the peak of a particularly busy day. I’m sure I am not the only one. If it were desperate for me to be there in person for the 9am, I’d have swallowed the extra fee. Or perhaps been a bit more organised and picked up my car yesterday.
The system is working. Now scale.
