It's unfortunate then because Uber operates with worse business ethics than the industry they're trying to replace:

We're sticking with public transport, thank you very much! Ha..! It is an absolute pleasure to go by public transport once you've experienced Australian's transport system. Routes, times and fees are a disgrace.

I've shortlisted a few choice listings on .. My husband will stay in a hostel for 2 weeks or so and hopefully by then, sort out the accomodation.
