US: Uber targeted by 14 more Boston cab companies

 |  March 1, 2017

Uber faces new foes, this time in Boston. Fourteen Boston area cab companies have filed a complaint against the ride share platform.

The complains allege that Uber violates state laws and city ordinances. It also claims that it deceives costumers about the safety of its vehicles and drives.

“Uber’s business plan and activity illegally undermine critical safety provisions of the municipal Taxi Rules,” the complaint states. “Uber’s UberX transportation system preys parasitically on established taxi services without paying for them and without obeying the laws designed to protect taxi passengers.”

The taxi drivers claim that Uber now controls a monopoly with 80% of the low-cost, on-demand ride-shares on the area.

This is the lates complaint of six in civil cases filed against the company in federal court in the month of February alone.
