UberX Hikes Minimum Fee in Philadelphia

May 27th, 2016 Shannon O'Donnell Comments Off on UberX Hikes Minimum Fee in Philadelphia

According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, UberX has increased its minimum fare for passengers. Formerly, the minimum was $5.25. Now it is $5.75. Also part of the Journal's scoop: UberPOOL passengers will pay the same fares as before, but a bigger cut of the fares will be going to the drivers instead of back to Uber. Therefore, UberPOOL drivers will bring home a little more money. UberPOOL has been in Philadelphia since February, when it was rolled out as a...Read More

The upcoming Super Bowls, with host cities, are: Super Bowl LI – 2017 – NRG...Read More

Philadelphia Hones Soda Tax Pitch

May 24th, 2016 Shannon O'Donnell Comments Off on Philadelphia Hones Soda Tax Pitch

Ah, the soda tax. It's a controversial topic in the City of Brotherly Love right now, and that's no surprise. Historically, across the nation, the concept of taxing sugary beverages has generally ignited public firestorms. The (very) financially-powerful soda industry brings in the big guns, swinging in defense, and advocates for the poor rail against the fact that they perceive soda taxes as a de facto tax on the impoverished. Not to mention those who object to an infringement on...Read More
