Is Uber Safe? According to Uber, No.

Posted by: Lilly Kenyon in Driver Community , Rider Community , Rideshare Knowledge 4 days, 12 hours ago

Yesterday, Uber released, for the first time in history, a complete safety report. The report covered all rides in the US for the full 2018 calendar year and partial 2017 calendar year.

Posted by: Sergio Avedian in Driver Community , Rideshare Knowledge 6 days, 14 hours ago


Christmas is coming early to all CA drivers. Uber announced today that drivers will get to see a lot more information regarding the trip request before they accept it! This is great news, as from my previous posts on Rideguru, I am not one who trusts Uber or Lyft since I have been burned so many times before by fare cuts and negative app changes. But this news really caught me off guard. I am thrilled that finally, at least in CA, drivers will be treated as true IC (Independent Contractors).
