Uber Won't Be Driving You Around the Hamptons This Summer
First world problem alert: Uber has essentially been banned from the East Hamptons! Ahhhhhh! What's everybody going to do now? Instead of actually banning Uber, the clever mates in the beachside town instituted a new rule that makes it extremely difficult for drivers to work there. According to Fortune, Uber sent out an email to its customers this week announcing that the East Hamptons now requires its drivers to have an office in the town in order to drive there. How many Uber drivers do you think have offices, period? Exactly. RELATED: Lucky Few Use Uber and Get Picked Up in a McLaren 650S
So you might be asking, why is this news? Well, this area is a massively popular summer destination for high-class partying, as you might know. However, transportation is a huge pain in tush. Most New Yorkers visiting the area do not have cars and are required to rely on buses, taxis, and or rails.
Because of that reliance, there are often huge waits, long lines, and large fees (for taxi rides). Uber is quite simply a better, easier option, if it were available. Unfortunately for visitors, that won't be the case.
