They always had this in San Francisco, right? It was called like Uber Freight or Uber Courier or something?
The application to UberEats is separate but you can just go ahead and apply for UberX now. I actually thought you had to sign up for UberX before you can apply for UberEats, but I’m sure this is possible.
Is this related to how a driver (in some markets?) cannot turn off UberEats? Your situation seems the opposite though.
I cannot turn off UberEats since its introduction, and it’s apparently because UberEats was so unpopular they has to force drivers to accept it. It was almost like a burden you had to accept for the privilege to driver as UberX
Of course, drivers just continue to click on No Thanks and decline UberEats requests. They aren’t a bigger money maker in the areas I work. Yes even during the pandemic.
I assume you are asking this because no eats drivers seem to be wearing them. I observed the same, and I think it's because they don't think it applies to food drivers. They think it's for driving passengers.
It's either that or they know they wouldn't be caught because there's no one to report them. Food cannot talk. No riders to report them.
They take $14 per hour out of $50? Damn. Then Uncle Sam takes another $10-12? Oof.
“The rider will pay $50 per hour and the driver will receive $36 per hour after Uber takes their 28% service fee.”
me too. it's ultimate fuel efficiency. Id be able to save huge on my monthly fuel cost.
I drive to work, but I can see people in the city on their subway and bus costs. People can own their own. Clear ROI is an easier sell in my opinion. For example, if I knew I can save $50 a month, I'd know after 12 months, I get my money back.
The rental, subscription model is too obscure IMO. It may work on music and movies but not sure on the transportation.
"Uber does not seem to have any contact number, is there not a customer service? "
Nope. They are notorious for being able to get in touch.
Everyone talks about wonderful guidelines but it's the enforcement that's difficult. Good question though.
I need to correct myself, it's not a guideline, it's a "requirement" now that everyone wear masks.
Fantastic business idea.
It sorta reminds me of Puber by Tosh0, where you can rent out people's toilets per an app.
Sorta. Driving for Uber basically requires you to work more than the normal 40 hours a week. It isn't constantly a busy job during the day. We get downtime between the fares, and if you took any 8 hour period from 9 to 5, you would definitely have a few hours just waiting.
So, you are basically expected to work more than 8 hours just sitting around.
yeah, but Muskegon isn't a big airport. (I just had to look it up.)
No offense but the Google Maps page for Muskegon Airport literally shows a photo of a snowbank and two photos of some random dude.
I am surprised there are any Ubers there.
Always blowing smoke so they can continue to score the funding
HAHAHA. Some stars have to align for me to do this.
- I better like the movie
- Free snacks. At least if you offer, then I know you are a good guy (or girl).
- I get to keep the meter running. Uber pays peanuts, but that's one way to get me paid officially.
- No talking! Let me enjoy the movie.
Yes, totally. You’ll screw up so might as well as put it out there
Plus people like honesty.
Plus people won’t ding you for being new. No downside
Taking money from the necessary living expenses is the goal of large corporations. They want it to be less regulated, and they get richer by taking money from the general public. That's the model for the riches to get richer.
Good question but I don't think there is a clear answer. There are indeed lots of people who want to remain part-time, and this group can even be bigger than the full-time professionals. However, it's very difficult to count them as some may only drive once a month or have already quit driving. (just happens to be registered.)
Also, when we speak about policy changes and laws, they used to cater to those whose life will be affected the most and people who are committed and are in the business long-term. Hence, I feel people should be listening to the full-time drivers whose lives depend on it, and less about some people who are in it to make a few bucks here and there
It's all a part of the evil empire.
That's because the business model is broken. Uber is wasting money investing in things that have nothing to do with ground transportation and is charging way less than what people are willing to pay. (remember taxis? People used to take them.)
Uber is evil. They sacrificed the drivers' pay in order to force growth and to thwart the competition. They really messed it up.
Scam are usually deceitful, manipulative, evasive, taking advantage of loopholes, and stuff like that.
This is brute force.
I don’t even consider this as a scam.
