  1. Did you improve the wait time? Per your presentation a third of the riders have to wait more than 45 minutes for a ride last month, how can we rely on it if it takes more super long to get a ride and sometimes the ride isn’t coming at all? Ps used to be the daily Mirco riders but stopped using it due to long wait and unsatisfied experience with Mirco.
