If you live in an expensive neighborhood, it'll cost more.
Though, I heard it's the people in crappier towns who've been get screwed on this.
You have to be pretty naive to believe that Uber isn't doing this. Just the fact this observation was uttered from their chief economist shows that they have thought about it and have incorporated this into surge calculations. Their moral compass is messed up and we know this.
I guess it prevents them from comparison shopping?
Wow, this is some intensely detailed reporting.
“What did I do?” Oh, gosh. This man will regret this night for the rest of his life.any people’s lives changed that day.
Just like those people you seen in public places, you have to stare them down, huff and puff, give that disappointed look and a sigh, and walk off
This isn’t just a rideshare problem. It happens everywhere.
Like at restaurants when you bring your children in and they have the news on, talking about airplane crashes and murders in the Bronx....
This dude owned up the problem like a boss.
Can someone explain this to me. How does this happen?
This is like the parody version of how the Uber costs different depending on who is requesting a ride.
This doesn't explain the "driver doesn't pick up my phone" part of the question.
but it's a good insight. This is a sort of thing riders have no idea about.
I am still waiting for that option. This happens WAY TOO OFTEN.
What the heck? Why would you even ask this question? Super creepy. I would be horrified if every driver - a stranger - could see everywhere I've been.
Webcam comes in all sides. There certainly can be hidden cameras.
Not sure whether that legal or not. I know they have the right to record within their own vehicle and while out in public but when the camera is hidden, I think that becomes an issue.
Like if there was one under the seat and a woman was wearing a skirt for example.
It’s the whole expectation of privacy thing.
I love it how the real rideshare services are still operating. They are usually community sites where people post their upcoming trips to share the ride. Like these people are cost and environement conscious good people who genuinely want to "share" for the good of the word. then Uber comes along and blow it up.
Maybe the real victims aren't taxis but the real "rideshare" industry that got completely taken over by Uber's calling themselves rideshares. or someone. I mean, who knows who or when the term "rideshare" started being used for Uber.
It's a lot of money for one incident.
As I mentioned in my response to JPoland, the problem lies in how Uber considers the User Reviews as Driver Ratings. There is a misalignment here because users are using the rating system to provide their feedback on the entire experience, not just the driver's function. Some things are outside of driver's control, such as how Uber's app works, how Uber's customer service is, Uber Pool's experience and who else were in the car, etc.
This is very true. It is almost a systemic problem where Uber holds the drivers responsible for the user's experience. Sure, the driver have a huge impact on the experience of the customer, but there are things that are outside of their control. The carsharing of Uber Pool is definitely one of them.
He is probably referring to how you felt inclined to bring up your "real profession". You felt insecure and felt judged for being an Uber driver and appearing to have that as the only job.
If you were truly comfortable with yourself, you perhaps would not have said anything. ...or even felt you were being talked down on.
Remember there are plenty of peopl who drive Uber fulltime and it is their only job. Should they feel ashamed?
Well, the driver has to have been driving long enough to exceed $5 or $10 by time and distance. If it's like $1.25 a mile, they'd had to have driven 4+ miles maybe over 10 minutes. You probably cancel before that.
Didn’t I read that Uber got denied the rights to run the business as part of the pilot? They weren’t selected as the two scooter companies.
Or was that Santa Barbara.
Oh, man. So with Lyft you can adjust the rating depending on how much they tipped? I feel somewhat yicky about that. I think it's okay to factor that in, but I feel like if this is the case, we can essentially buy good ratings.
Am I wrong that drivers may dictate the rating too overly much on the tip amount?
