Free Dash Cam Warning Stickers for Drivers

Posted by: RideGuru in Driver Community 2 days, 5 hours ago

While driving for Uber or Lyft has its perks it can also lead to troublesome situations. Many drivers, to avoid being wrongly accused or to secure evidence of wrongdoings, have decided to install dash cam video and audio recorders in their cars. On the help section of Uber's website, they state that drivers may “install and use video cameras to record riders for purposes of safety.” However, Uber also encourages drivers to check local regulations on using and disclosing their recording equipment. Many areas have laws in effect that require drivers to make their passengers aware of any video or ...

Uber is raising Prices (On Jump E-Bikes & Dockless Scooters)

Tough Rideshare Regulations in NYC and British Columbia leave Lyft Complaining - Will Uber Follow Suit?

Posted by: Sergio in Driver Community , Rideshare Knowledge 5 days, 8 hours ago

Lyft is retaliating in NY after the TLC (Taxi Limousine Commission) extended the cap on rideshare drivers and instituted a minimum wage rule. And after five years of operation in Canada, British Columbia has yet to allow the global giants of the rideshare industry to roll in. However, that may be changing as of September of 2019. BC Passenger Transportation Safety Board (an independent tribunal) will start processing company applications by September 3, 2019.
