They’re still around? Anyone know how the company is doing?
I hope they spent it on good things...like safety.
Reading how some of the investors and founders making billions, it’s weird to think this entire amount went directly to like one person.
Benefits and such. Whether this helps the drivers depends on those people. It’ll help people who are full time and are dedicated to the job. This can push out those who did this on an ad-hoc or on-demand basis.
This was one of the goals or agenda of these people who pushed for the AB5. They claim better lives, pay, quality of work, etc, but that was the underlying goal IMO.
That’s retaliatory. You can’t do that. You should self reflect and if there is a reason the rider didn’t tip, you should accept that. You should rate them according to what they are expected to do during a ride as a passenger.
The rating shouldn’t be reflective of whether the person tipped or how much they tipped. What would you do (what would you rate them), if the rider was a total jerkoff but he tipped you $200?
I was thinking the same thing. The journalist who picked up this story couldn’t come up with anything interesting to say.
The most eye catching is the 5000 mile thing which was supposed to give him credibility. That is such a clock bait. Then we read it and it has nothing interesting
100 pounds is nothing. That's like 17000 ping pong balls.
Nah, I mean the name, “micromobility.” Probably won’t stick.
Thanks. I wonder if it’ll stick. “Ridehailing” never stuck.
I didn’t know either of the buzz words. E-scooters and micro-mobility?
E-scooters. Is that because we book them electronically (app) or because they run on electricity?
Micro-mobility. Is that because scooters are tinier than cars and bikes? Or because they cost very little?
Of course you can sue them. The driver and Uber. Enjoy
WHAT. First of all, does the Uber app even know our battery level? Second of all...why would that change the price? oh, because you are so desperate that you'd take any ride?
Yes, but I heard there is quite a bit of thefts and vandalisms with these things. College pranksters hang them up as trophies in their dormrooms.
They claim GPS and all that, but once you cut the electricity and take out the controlbox, it's back to a regular ol' electric scooter.
Plus, people love bashing and destroying things they find in public.
I have always had the suspicion of their surge practice, and I think it’s wide spread enough that everyone just accepts it.
The good news is that after multiple of these, the driver will eventually be deactivated. Every driver has a bad day once in a while but repeat offenders? It'll catch up to them and they will be weeded out.
that's why it's stupid that this is even a law. Rules like this are costing the time money of innocent people and all it takes for a crook is to pay $1.00 on eBay.
They must have VERY loose rules against rideshares.
Or that for a start-up to prove itself, it needs to compete in this battlefield to prove itself.
New world. The days post-IPO. Public investors want drivers to suffer. It's all financials now.
We've been in a honeymoon period all along. It just came crashing down.
"side hustle to your side hustle. " They are working drivers to the bone.
LOL. all robocalls.
