Triple J interview about Uber ‘arrests’

1 Dec, 2014

Howarth is interviewed for the Australian Broadcasting Corp. youth channel’s Hack program, and says Uber X – not Uber Black or Uber Livery – are exploiting drivers and operating against the law in several states of Australia. Asked if he is working with any other ridesharing or ridesourcing apps he indicates that he may have an arrangement with Uber’s competitors including Lyft. He says he is offering drivers that he citizens arrests the opportunity to work with other companies and make more money while also becoming ‘legitimate.’ Asked by host Tom Tilley if he stands to profit from other companies taking market share away from Uber:

Oh, absolutely.
