Sounds super lame.
Funny how you mention that the riders have changed. (from nice to rude) That's what riders are now saying about their drivers.
I wonder if something has changed or it's more the people utilizing the Uber's platform (both drivers and riders). I heard that the reason more drivers are rude is because they aren't professional drivers but just entitled car owners looking to make a few bucks. They aren't trained in customer service, and they just treat riders as wallets walking around.
I thought Bob Barker died.
What's the difference between prostitutes and hookers?
If the dead leg is such a huge issue, Uber themselves should resolve it somehow.
I do get it how it's all fluid. If the driver reaches a destination, he could potentially find another customer there and potentially even bring him back to the original location. In that case, no additional compensation is necessary. However, if the driver HAS to take the dead leg home, I feel like some kind of comp is appropriate.
What if we have Uber pay the ride back to the driver's home base, i.e. home?
Are you saying the driver should be able to dictate or adjust the price depending on the length of the trip? or for extra work that had to be performed or additional cost incurred?
That's an interesting idea. A little negotiation, and the driver types in a new figure. I mean we've been doing that with limos all the time. Uber is just responsible for connecting the two parties and they let the driver-rider take care of it.
I don't think it has to be for every ride, but perhaps a way for the driver to override the price is fantastic idea.
I am not a driver, but I feel like there is a tacit understanding that the drivers don't really speak unless spoken to? Or most prefer to not talk, so they make a small small talk in the beginning but when the riders are quiet, drivers also remain quiet.
So basically, they do what you want to do. Hopefully they can read the room and catch it when the driver doesn't feel like talking.
Mess indeed. They wanna blame somebody.
This had flop written all over it before it even started.
Rest assured your hard earned money will go into stupid projects like UberAir that reinvents airports
