One-third of cabbies in San Francisco work for Uber, Lyft, or Sidecar

In San Francisco, where Uber and Lyft got their starts, resistance to these services seems futile. While taxi drivers may be striking against the “unfair competition” in Paris, one-third of cabbies in San Francisco have ditched their registered cabs. These drivers are now working for Uber, Lyft, or Sidecar, Fortune reports.

Being a cab driver isn’t what it used to be. The San Francisco Cab Drivers Association (SFCDA), an association for registered taxi drivers that promotes fair working conditions and business practice, reports that one-third of the 8,500 or so taxi drivers in San Francisco — over 2,800 — have ditched driving a registered cab in the last 12 months to drive for a private transportation startup like UberLyft, or Sidecar instead.
