You won’t be able to sign up for Uber until you have a vehicle. Without a vehicle, you won’t have an auto insurance policy, that they require, and you won’t satisfy their vehicle requirement. (They check what kind of car you have.)
The third thing they look for is license, driving records and sometimes criminal records. I assume you have the last part, but car is definitely necessary.
Oh, of course, unless you rent a car from one of the Uber partners. They have a few partners like Hertz, Turo, etc. I can’t remember the current line up.
Aggressive, dirty, or drunk. Other than that, I think I take anyone.
I agree that they fell behind the time with the dispatching technology. However the taxi industry tried but they couldn’t keep up. Why?
Localized regulations, localized taxi companies, localized taxi and medallion ownerships. There was no centralized organization that could invest, adopt such technology, and implement it everywhere. Uber has no regulations to deal with (in the beginning) and the world as the targetable audience, they had a huge leg up over localized taxi companies.
Speaking of regulations and medallions, the government who enforced those rules on them should have protected them or at the least made a move on Uber at much earlier stages. Not sure if that would have worked, but the complete ignoring of the taxi companies and medallion owners was purely pathetic.
I got a notification from the NY guild that wherever I am, I should stop working at 10AM. They also mentioned that they have been successful in influencing Uber in NYC where they raised the base fare and required tips and stuff
With that said, I don’t think anyone would egg your house or anything if you want to work.
I work flexible schedule so I will take a break tomorrow morning and see what happens.
Stay in place where you booked the ride. Stop walking towards your destination. Stop walking over to the other side of the road. Just stay in place so I can find you.
Did you know that if the driver isn't making an effort to come towards you (upon request), you can cancel without being charged the cancellation fee. Sometimes the Uber app even tells you this.
So that’s a great question. What do I do if I ask but they don’t have an ID?
Think Camry and Taurus. You are probably okay with UberX for a family of four.
What did you drive to the airport? A sedan? Just imagine one extra person (the driver). Did all the suitcases fit in the trunk?
Edited: I first typed “UberXL”. My bad
Nah, dude. That's a good thing. We the drivers pay the commission. That's their take.
Less they take, more drivers make. So that's a good thing.
No. He maybe the one who accepts, doesn’t move, ignores all communications from the rider, and waits until the pax does.
Good question. The poster is referring to before the driver accepts the ride so this “declining” is completely hidden from the customer. To you, the passenger, it’s all happening behind the scenes while the Uber app is spinning.
This basically gives the drivers to pick the type of rides they want. Happy drivers, better service.
The worst thing is that it may take slightly longer for your Uber app to find you a driver.
Uber is just another way for the upper class and Wall Street to suck money away from the real people. No employees at Uber, government officials and investors do any work but get super rich for the people working the street.
“Where you are registered with Uber” VS Where your car is registered and have a plate from” are different, aren’t they?
Or are they not? I don’t know. I thought you can have a plate in one state and still be assigned (by Uber) to another state. Isn’t that the crux of the question?
Did you explain that your app froze?
Not that it really helps, the 1-star rating will drop off after like 500 rides. A few months for some drivers.
Umm, no, I don't have any experience, but you gotta call your bank and stop those withdrawals, man.
This is why I hate providing bank account information. There is less mechanisms in place to stop vendors from taking your money. This is why there is a huge benefits in using credit cards where you can.
No, not guaranteed. However, there are more drivers than you think out there at 5:30-6:00, because of airport pickups and drivers wanting to make a few bucks before morning rush).
It really depends on your location. You in the city? Or near a large one? Shouldn’t be a problem.
Did you suggest to everyone that we should have weapons?
It sucks for the driver because we are pretty much guaranteed to get a 1-star rating. Ouch.
No, Uber gives no care when you complain. It takes 500 rides for it to disappear from your records.
I was thinking the same thing. It mocks things like how we need to have $4.69 Fiji water and a phone charger or the customer goes ape.
To wait until you are about to drive by, and they jump on your hood.
Then steal your smartphone and your Uber and Lyft stickers off of your windshields. Then grab your dashcam, steal your Febreze bottles, throw your blanket in the puddle, break your phone holder, and drive your 2008 Honda Focus off the cliff.
Yes, it's a huge security risk. We are targeted constantly.
