Kelly Dessaint on why he left Lyft and Uber to drive a taxi

Jan 30, 2019

San Francisco taxi driver Kelly Dessaint began his 20-year career in print media publishing zines. Then in 2015, he landed a weekly column in the San Francisco Examiner called I Drive SF, which chronicles his experiences on the road.

"I don't see how people can just drive into San Francisco and think that they can be a taxi cab."

Kelly recently released the fourth volume of his popular Behind the Wheel zine series and he spoke about the growing impact of rideshare companies on the taxi industry and how every day on the road is a potential story.
