Simply put, Uber has disrupted the taxi industry. It’s rise could be compared to the same effect mp3's had on diminishing the recording industry’s power over artists and their music. Staying true to the free market Uber came along and offered a more convenient service, reasonable prices, and ease of use with their smartphone app.

Yet for all the advancements I’ve seen them make, I’m not entirely sure why I can’t select a driver? Why force me to be stuck with a 3 star driver when a 5 star driver is just as far away? Everytime I use this amazing service I ask myself this very question. Can’t you make something better that's already great? Introducing Driver Selection.
