My husband and I have never used Uber before but would like to for transportation to an early morning flight out of Birmingham- Shuttleworth Airport. We would need to be picked up at 4:30 am. We live about 20 minutes south of the airport. Does that early hour work for an Uber driver?

Taxi prices in Birmingham, Alabama, were about double the price in other similar cities, with such major cities as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Houston, Chicago and Philadelphia – as well as San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle – seeing prices less than half the metro price. Many taxi services employ drivers who are dependent on the fares in order to cover their costs of living and transportation, and even if they receive a bonus from the government to compensate them for their costs, they are still paid far less than their counterparts in competing jobs.

A lot of Birmingham residents pay for parking for the price of one. A 15 mile round trip one-way will cost you $15. This will go towards an annual payment for the parking fee as well as the $15 Uber fee and the $3.00 for the lift station fee. No doubt you'll also need to hire a Tow Truck or a police car for emergencies if you are using the Uber service. But this Uber fee is probably fair considering how expensive a taxi ride usually is around here.

Taxi prices in Birmingham that fall below minimum wage have risen 60 percent over five years, driving a class war that is killing wages across the nation, a new report said. Falling living standards at home in some of the biggest American cities are contributing to wages falling further for drivers, according to a new study. Uber's rates are also too high, but its valuation still makes its operation more appropriate than any "unique" taxi business in the United States, the council said. The council said the ride-sharing app cannot operate in the Birmingham area. We would like to see Uber fully partner with local authorities.
