I used to own several so I speak with experience. in order for you to take a radio taxi you must call the company so that it's put into the computer system. Hailing...

    Uber Banned

    That's a good question. The point of using Uber is having more security by paying with a card but those with local bank accounts in Argentina can't pay with a card and must rely on cash. As far as better drivers, I'm not so sure. I've had bad Uber drivers as well as taxi drivers. One Uber...

    Sad But True.

    I hear people not from Argentina or those who've never lived here analyze what changes can be made in the government to improve the country. They don't understand it's much more complicated than that. Society has to change and that is unlikely to ever happen.

    Uber Is Gaining Momentum

    As a former taxi driver in BA I can tell you they taxi drivers hate rides out of Capital because they're unlikely to pick up a passenger on the way back. They lose time and money making the long trip out of the city not even worth it

    Clinton - Trump Live Debate Monday Sept. 26 Th.

    Trump is a pig and that's all there is to it. If we vote for him we're condoning his disgusting behavior and young people will learn that if the President can treat women like garbage they can too. Are we going back to the 1950s? We're devolving rather than evolving.

    Seriously Thinking Of Retiring In Ba

    Serafina, I agree with you about everything you've said. Argentines have little or no common sense. They don't think of the long-term effects not care what the next generation will suffer as a result of today's actions. In other places this happens as well. In NYC despite the laws about...
