More than 200,000 Uber customers deleted Uber’s app over the course of a week in January as part of the #DeleteUber movement.
There are numerous examples of a deceitful culture at Uber, from the use of the Greyball software, which made it difficult for law enforcement officials to book rides, to the surreptitious tracking of iPhones in violation of Apple’s terms of service. More examples keep coming out. The Colorado Public Utilities Commission fined Uber $8.9 million for not running proper background checks and letting dozens of people with felony convictions and driver’s license issues ferry passengers around. The background check issue is chronic: It’s at the heart of the London transportation authority’s decision to lift Uber’s license. Uber has pretended to go along with requirements but often neglected to do it in practice.
