Had four girls ask a price to Llandudno from the station (Chester) Saturday night. Clock price is around £110. I told them that price and they weren’t impressed, I said I’d do it for £100, it’s an easy run, 102 miles there and back and less than 2hrs in total. They said poober had quoted £66.00 she even showed me the price. That’s £1.29 per mile, minus their commission and then fuel and other costs! How do they survive ????? #-o

Because they subsidise fares via money got from, mainly, mugs in California.

To the tune of $10 Billion in the last five years.

Let them wait for poober; when it comes to surge pricing see what it costs then. :)

Meanwhile, why join the race to the bottom? Even at £100 for 102 mile round trip, you're only "earning" 5p a mile more than the cost of running your car. £5 for 2 hours driving?
