Uber/Lyft strike tactics Show more
Uber and Lyft already lose tons of money and don't care. For the strike to have an effect, it has to reduce their odds of meeting their long-term goal: to bankrupt taxis and destroy public transit.
The best way to do this is for drivers to strike and sympathetic passengers to lay on as much demand as possible. Unsympathetic passengers must find their wait times increasing and decide to use alternatives, preferably souring on Uber/Lyft in the process.
