Full-throated? Like singing or screaming?
And...? This isn't a surprise to anyone. Oldest story in the wild. From taxi days. Just a stupid article that just covers some basic but will get lots of clicks because the headline sounds cool.
Did Trump kill it. He doesn't believe in innovation or technology. or rather doesn't understand any of it.

Officers Investigate Uber/Lyft Lot Schema/Scam at Orlando International Airport
How do you report a bad driver? Just give one-star rating.
The keyword is “politely.”
It’s all about the delivery. “Don’t wanna die today” part will come out slightly funny but with a little sense of realism. I actually think this is a perfect response
Yeah, the premise was supposed to be that the driver was speeding, perhaps weaving down a busy city streets.
I feel speeding is a nature that some drivers have and some do not. It almost feels like driver professionalism has nothing to do with it.
And it’s not even always about going over the speed limit, it can just be accelerating uncomfortably fast on a side road for example.
Hahaha, you are right. I was confused. when I read the other message.
but think about it though. If the driver has to initiate the convo, the driver has to say, "what's my name?! Say my name, b**tch!" LOL.
Yes, but the question is more to do with HOW TO ask.
thank you for the education. Much appreciated. A new user here of RG here.
If Uber is taking 50~70% of fares how are they unprofitable? Is this completely a flawed business model? This is fascinating, because when you think about it a minute, this "industry" has existed in the form of taxis and limos. and they were profitable. What went wrong here.
The half the price thing I mentioned was based on the potential of the cost savings an autonomous vehicles bring. I understand that a huge majority of expenses incurred on a rideshare ride is for the driver’s pay. (Something like 60-70% or something. Followed by fuel.) We pay for the time they drive and indirectly pay for the time they are waiting for rides.
So once we go all driverless, there has to be a huge savings, which I’m hoping would be passed down to the consumers and not stay in Uber’s hands.
Well, hell, what about the fact they outright ignore the posted rates of per mile per minute fees? Aren’t those required by law to publish?
Driverless and half the price.
Hey, you asked. I don’t mean to be insensitive.
I didn't realize we weren't tipping often. LOL.
Are there statistics on this. ...or if you are a driver, what's your impression on how often they tip? Forget the amount for a second. How frequent?
You are giving them way too much credit. They want to keep all paying customers. :)
also, i wonder if there is an element of FTC in here. They may not be able to force people to use their real names as these "names" are being shared to drivers and potentially others.
Interesting. Lyft as not popular as I thought in Philly.
It’s fascinating how there are tiny nuances between the two companies about how they pay out the long distance pick up. I keep thinking they’re exactly the same.
What city are you in? I feel Lyft is pretty widely available in the Northeast where I am.
