Basically, drivers can refuse a ride (i.e. cancel, decline, etc.) for any reasons at all as they are independent contractors driving their own private vehicles.
apparently, they still are not allowed to discriminate based on gender, religion, or race. and if the rider has a service animal.
Here's a relevant thread:
I mean by state or federal law. I get it that it's bad and you can be deactivated. I am now curious if this is considered illegal and whether the driver could be sued by the riders. What about getting fined by the law enforcement and being arrested or criminally charged?
I am so curious I submitted a question. Of course, this would be a lot more relevant if I ever drove an Uber. haha
There is a difference between being deactivated and doing something illegal.
I am asking this seriously, because I don't know. You said drivers can be deactivated but is this illegal? Can this even be criminal?
huh. you bring up a good point.
If I am driving my own car, driving around personally, I can drive anyone or anything I want and I also have the right to refuse it, say based on "I just don't like you."
Now, if I am actually "working" as a contractor, would the rules change? I think it would. You go into a business arrangement with someone the moment you decided to pick them up.
I had no idea of those exceptions. I feel like the drivers and riders should be notified of such arrangement.
Who said Lyft is 10% cheaper? I don't think that's true anywhere.
...but if it were true? People use Uber because everyone knows Uber and there are more drivers on Uber. If there are more drivers available, it'll offer quicker pickup times and less likely chance of surge.
Here's another one:
Umm...yes? Of course. Haven’t you been listening to the news? J/k
Yeah, look at that smile.
He’s being rewarded for his campaigns to improve their reputation, keep driver retention, preparing the company for ipo etc.
Those who criticize are those who don’t have kids. They have no idea.
You gotta admit. We all thought omthe same when reading this.
Why do people think "CARAOKE" is so clever. Please don't make it a thing.
They are building their people-killing driving robots and Uber Airplanes.
Lyft used to encourage you to sit up front. Have conversations and such.
A person to person. Not service provider to customer. Just two people sharing a ride.
Those days are long gone.
I only take USD.
I know nothing about the Wall Street. Is there some impact or reason they would go public on the same day?
Remember a huge portion of the $148 goes to the lawyers
I thought Lyft was foudned before Uber. It says 2012 for Lyft and 2009 for Uber.
