If you’ve got access to Uber and Lyft, there’s a good conversation to be had about why you’d choose those services over a traditional cab. It’s probably not about cleanliness; Uber and Lyft have standards, but it’s still somebody’s car. The city of Long Beach thinks you’re choosing those services because they’re cool, and convenient. They’re probably right, too. Uber and Lyft are winning out because hailing one is easier, and the city is trying to emulate that with fresh paint and a new app.
