    So now I have to do research on casa addresses in SDQ.

    But overall I think it is a great idea. I'm looking forward to using it.

    On that note if anyone feels like throwing up an update Casa list with addresses, that would be most appreciated.

    P.S. : Don't bother to respond with RTTF, because I'm just going to tell you to shut the fuck up and have a nice day.
    Most of the casas are in uber app. Just type the name in and it will bring you there, except for casa teresa. For casa teresa it will bring you to a house in este. But all the other ones in gazcue are in the app.

    The sort of thing you describe did happen in Paris and other cities in Europe. Eventually the French taxi unions made their peace with uber. Nothing even remotely similar happened in Santo Domingo in the several months since uber really took off. The most aggressive taxi union move I've noticed so far is the parking lot style barrier they put up at the entrance to the lower level taxi stand at the airport. I find uber especially helpful for setting up rides for girls. I worry a lot less when I send a girl away late at night in an uber than I do when I call a taxi for them.

    This can be done in the house as well.

    Uber Safety

    I know Uber is all the rage. BQRibs has been using it for a while and raves about it. I happen to agree even though I've never used it. I plan to when I want to bar hop from now on. Overall, I think Uber is safe. But I agree with the posters who say to use caution with them at the airport.

    Uber cars are nicer than most and would be easy to spot at the airport. The exit from the airport is considered a choke point in tactical terms. Spotter at the airport, two ladrons on motor and it's on. Blocking car could be used, but if I were running the operation, I would have a moto lay down in front of the taxi to make it stop. Have the double moto armed with a sawed off for intimidation and the moto that went down armed with a hand gun for back up. Trail car covers the rear. Armed robberies occur all the time and they just get one cell phone. Hit an Uber taxi you get two for sure. Now my scenario can go down with any taxi and for any location but departure from the airport has a slightly higher risk in my opinion.

    Vehicle Maintenance

    I had some maintenance done on the Gran Jefe mobile. Need to get ready for my next trip to the North Coast. I had my oil, oil filter, air filter and cabin filter changed. All my fluids were checked along with the air pressure in my tires. My technician did a little trick I haven't seen before. He took the air fragrance tree and placed it on top of the cabin air filter. I stood next to him the entire process and he explained and showed me each operation performed. I met the boss of the facility, he made sure I got the right parts for maintenance of my vehicle. Very professional and the facility was clean, well run, modern as anything you would find in the US. Even though my Spanish is not very good I was able to get through the process. So now, I have a excellent recommendation for a vehicle maintenance / repair facility in Santo Domingo Este. PM if needed.

    Uber

    When I was there in Feb. The taxi unions was having a strike / protest against uber so there is already some push back vs uber. In the competition is better for the consumer.

    In terms of being robbed, you can be robbed easier with no trace in a normal taxi. With uber you will see a picture of a driver so you know who is picking you up, they whole trip is tracked via GPS, the driver has no idea if you have money or not because your paying with a CC, so is 3 years in jail worth for stealing a smartphone?

    If the taxi setup robbery is going to happen, its going to happen regardless of uber. I would say its less likely because uber leaves a paper trail and say what you will about the police, they arent that bad and even a blind squirl finds a nut.

    Paranoia indeed. Uber, as you clarified does not require a destination and does not require a pick up address either, if one is 'dropping" a pin. I thought Uber would be a positive development but to read so many worried people that somehow the "poor" tourist would be robbed and who knows what else, defies reality check. In my 20+ visits, I have only had one encounter with a cop and without a hint of a money exchange and I drive a rental car all across the island. Let's not project our own fears and insecurities on everyone else and the islanders. The sky is not falling!

    That might just be how the taxi mafia will screw with Uber, plant a few drivers into the system and have some accomplices box the Uber car in somewhere along the route and rob the customer of all of their belongings and money. It happens with taxi drivers all the time in Colombia without the convenience of knowing in advance when the customer is being picked up and where he is going.

This would be very easy since before you order an Uber from the app you need to put in your destination. Your cousin could relay that info en route to picking up is passenger/s.
    You don't need to enter your destination to request uber. Even if you enter your destination, the driver doesn't see it until they pick you up. And once you're in car, you can always give directions for the route you want to take. For he super paranoid, you can always change your destination once you get in the car.

    Address for Casa

    I like the idea of Uber in SDQ. I will be there in June. I don't go to SDQ much. In the past, I would RTTF and gather the names of the casa that I wanted to atten. Then I'd give the name of the casa to the cab driver who took me to the casas. The obvious Cons to this for me was:

    1) the fucking driver would always follow me in the casa to try to get a propina for bring me there as if my being there was his idea.

    -Your cousin pleads ignorance and is just as traumatized as his passenger/s, LOL.

    Please don't say the above scenario is far-fetched, especially for a 3rd world country like the DR. I'm sure you have heard of drivers in India r@ping their female passengers.

    Check out the "Alleged Assaults by Uber and Lyft Drivers" section. This link is for the USA, by the way

    That's exactly what I was trying to say.

And if they do happen to land a job do you think they are going to fuck it off doing something like this? Since everybody on this board always says how hard it is to get a job in DR and everybody is so poor.
    In my experience Dominicans don't put a job over family and culture. In fact most seem pissed that they have a job as if its punishment. When is the last time you had great customer service with a smile in the DR? So yes I think they might play gringo on the sly without a thought about the job. Shit cops, lawyers, judges and politicians fuck over the gringo for no reason at all, but you want a cabbie to have morals?
