yes, but we all work for both. It's all about the coverage. In the Boston market, especially in the suburbs, Uber is still king.
You'd use it in Boston? The reason it is so attractive in NYC is because it is an island, and there are huge bottlenecks in its bridges. The 8 minute ride can save an hour. Not sure if Boston has anything similar to that.
I too signed up around your time, and I remember their promises. They had them all over the place, on billboards and magazines.
There were lots of disclaimers and find prints though. For one, I think it was only for the first few months, and it had a strict requirements where you had to give x number of rides and work certain number of hours or days or something. (I am pretty sure it was more the # of rides. I was in Boston.)
I do remember doing the math and talking to my buddies about it. Basically, if you met the minimum number of rides, you end up making the amount anyways. There were only special cases and very specific drivers who received the difference, and this happened only if they were faced with too many short rides that didn't pay much for each trip. (think downtown big cities)
So technically, you can work 24/7 all month, but if you didn't give enough rides or receive enough requests, they didn't have to pay you any extra.
Was the $7.92 the big driver settlement every one's talking about? LOL
(I totally thought it was Momo also. Funny thing. It's actually a cute handle except for the scary pics that were circulated.)
Those who won't participate will get all the surges in the world!
...hence I don't believe this will work. There has to be unity for this type of thing to work.
It’s like that time I got pulled over in CT for not knowing you can’t have the phone up to the ear. How am I supposed to know that if I was just driving through the state?
Put up a huge sign with all the state level driving rules?
Uber is trying to do some things like paying premium for unwanted or long rides and allowing the driver to jump back into the digital queue at airports if he ride is too short. They are trying to eliminate reasons drivers want to cherry pick and do unruly things "before" the trip starts. (because that's the real issue)
What do you mean you haven’t had a coherent talks? LOL. Like not being able to speak English or they just didn’t know how to hold a conversation.
Btw, that’s funny. I actually don’t really see a chance to hang or converse with other drivers. I mean, I see their cars all the time as they have stickers on them, but never close, bored enough , or in-person to talk.
Actually the airport maybe the only exception.
I don’t think I have this feature. I’m an Uber Pro. At least I think I am.
I’m in Boston
Doesn't that appear on the ride request page?
Just remember and perhaps go reference the training Uber gave you.
Oh, right there isn't any. LOL.
I just washed my car with a hose last night and I’m in Boston dropping to minus 2 degrees.
As long as you drive right away, the doors don’t freeze up. Maybe a little but I don’t feel it to be a huge problem.
Btw, if you are referring to the last few weeks? My local car wash has been closed. I guess they figured it isn’t worth it. LOL
I am completely ignorant about this. I mean I am aware of the employee vs. contractor thing. Does this settlement mean that every driver moving forward will be an employee?
I appreciate the suggestions but some of these on Amazon has 2 stars, like the Silipower. (not to mention no longer available)
Oh, the Pyle one even has the wrong link. It goes to an error page.
This will never work. I don't have $400 to drop on this.
I think they completely underestimate the ability for us drivers to make this sort of investment.
Tip? No. But I sort of want it.
It’s like how I purchased my Ford in the highest trim just so I can get the soft LED glow on the floorboard. Also the FORD metal lettering on the hood and also on the mud flaps.
Do you choose Uber or Lyft? Or do you get both. Having both would look ghetto
No. There are ways for Uber to know whether the photo is old, re-used, altered, etc. Take a look at this post:
How is Uber fighting back against Cleaning Fees Scams?
Isn't that illegal? Yes, the cars are the drivers', and they should be able to do whatever they want in it. They also need to protect themselves and webcams are one of the few ways they do that.
One time I had to drive three five year olds and they each brought her own booster seat. It was adorable. They were going to one of the girls' birthday party. Yes, mom was there.
I don’t think you have to worry. What you don’t realize is that there are people who intentionally slam the door because it’s fun or whatever. Happens all the time with the drunk frat boys who have too much energy. Surprised my window hasn’t yet shattered
Remember this mantra of being an Uber driver:
You make money by driving the rush or driving the drunks.
