In this article the Sentinel’s Ryan Gillespie cites the how certain cities in the Central Florida area used taxpayers money to pay for the freelance taxi cab company Uber to transport Sunrail patrons from “stop to stop” destinations.
Originally the mind set was to help with obvious parking and traffic issues. As most public transportation does. It was quickly found that there were “trade secret” tactics coming into question with how the money was delegated.
House Speaker Richard Corcoran filed a lawsuit seeking financial details and Governor Rick Scott stepped in as well. This article is a very accurate description of why we all need to pay close attention to our taxpayer money. Very interesting and enlightening.
