Uber in Beijing by Julien GONG Min

Uber(ウーバー)とは、アメリカ合衆国の企業であるウーバー・テクノロジーズが運営する、自動車配車ウェブサイト及び配車アプリである[1][2]。現在は世界58カ国・地域の300都市で展開している[3][4]
Uber – Wikipedia

このように、タクシーを含めた自動車を呼ぶサイト&アプリがUberなのですが、以下の記事を読む限りでは、タクシーの別の呼称として使われてもいるようです。

 


出生地命名主義と救急車不足のせいで…

Taxi Baby Seat by Smylers

インドに住むある母親は、生まれた赤ちゃんを出生地で名づける習慣でした。

と言うと、「デリー」「ムンバイ」「ハイデラバード」などの地名かなと思いますよね。しかし、彼女はなんとわが子に「ウーバー」と名づけました。いつもウーバーを使って通院し、出産もウーバーで呼んだタクシーの中だったからです。

タクシードライバーのシャーナワズ・カーンはこう語りました。

「いままでもタクシーじゃなくて救急車を呼んでくれって妊産婦さんたちに言ってきたんだけど、救急車は手配がつかなかったって、みんな言うんだよね…。

しょうがないから、俺が赤ちゃんを取り上げたよ。シートからタオルを引きずりだして、ボウルには飲み水を入れたんだ。」

タクシー運転手さん、ありがとう!

Friendly driver asked me to take a picture of him by Francisco Anzola

海外旅行ではお世話になる機会も多いタクシー。親切な運転手さんに当たると、その国の印象まで良くなってしまいますよね。

運転技術やルートの知識だけでなく、人間を相手に臨機応変に対応するスキルも必要になる、とっても大変なお仕事。それほど稼ぎのいい職業でもなさそうです。

タクシーでのトラブルも海外旅行ではつきもの。白タク(無認可タクシー)などにぼったくられたり、こちらが道を知らないと思って遠回りされたり、メーターをちゃんと使っていなかったり…

対策としては
・ホテル・レストランなどで呼んでくれるタクシー
・正規のタクシー乗り場にいるタクシー
なら、信用して良いでしょう。 

くわえて、
・あらかじめ料金の相場を聞いておく
・乗る前に「どこどこまでいくら位?」と確認し、「自分からはぼったくれないからね!」ということをアピール
・発車時、ちゃんとメーターを倒しているかチェック
・レシートをもらう
なども、だまされない対策となります。国によってはメーターでなく交渉によって運賃が決まる場合も。

タクシー利用は現地の人と会話できる貴重な機会でもあります。短い時間でも出会いを楽しみましょう!
