Uber has not been an option in Asia since April 2018, 10 months ago.

 

Those conducting the poll didn't know this?

 

Or is this an old story being republished?

Hate to tell you the truth, but there are no tuk tuks that expells black exhaust.
Seems everyone I am stuck behind is puffing some black/purple cloud regardless of what fuel type they use. Those things are so beat up and old, they are not very efficient

They are two-strokes and use lpg (or something like that). They can't produce black smoke from their exhaust.

They are happy taking an Uber? I call BS!

Uber is not been an option in Chiang Mai for quite some time.

This poll is a fake.

Well ask a bunch of foreigners who live in Chiang Mai, many of whom can speak passable to advanced Thai, you'll find many negative stories.

 

And ask from local Chiang Mai Thai folks, again plenty of negative stories.

 

Except when it's just jump on - jump off on a standard route.

"

The majority of respondents to the survey spoke of the city's public transport infrastructure and routing being a complete mess. 

 

It didn't even go to where tourists wanted to visit. 

 

Some 84% said they had had one problem or another on transport in Chiang Mai with the overwhelming majority having been on the red buses. 

 

More than half of those complained about politeness and lack of public service. 

 

Thai visitors wanted to see better public transport option all round - this included suggestions there should be trams and electric trains."

It's not only tourists, a very large percentage of local thai folks and resident foreigners would love to see big changes and a much better organized / much more modern and economical public transport system, free of rip offs.

Whatever the color, it's not something I want to breath. Or smell.
