    In Dubai their public transport system in AMAZING! So easy, fast, clean, not crowded, etc. If other cities spent that kind of money on their transport systems I bet UberPool and LyftLine would die overnight.

    Didn't Uber recently put a public transport option in the their app though? I wonder if that helps some.

    Pool, express pool and shared rides on Lyft is the culprit. Everyone is getting off the bus and into a car.

    Seems obvious. Rideshares are too cheap. Public transport is forced to raise prices which only makes the problem worse.
