With more and more people using Uber and Lyft, Chicago Taxi Cabs are seeing a dramatic drop in passengers.

DNA Info reports that between January and July this year, the number of people taking cabs in Chicago has dropped 41% from 2016 city data shows.

As a city resident, I feel bad for cab drivers, but it's also very expensive compared to ride share apps. Plus, they just added a fee to pay with a credit card. It sometimes cost me $40 to take a cab to Midway BEFORE tip. With Lyft, it may only cost me $25.
