well, since you asked... no. they will not recover.
They could never finish off the taxi industry. There are regulations coming, like work hours, driver benefits, and price regulations, and we will all revert back to the days of taxis.
I mean it's already happening. Accountability of drivers, registered and properly insured vehicles, etc. That's how they issue taxi medallions.
Uber was incessant and didn't drop it. Kept repeating the same thing. At any point, they could have just shut up, and this whole thing would have gone away. They should know how to de-escalate.
,...you know like the way the police doesn't.
Is this desperation for work (and money)? Is the economy that horrendous?
...or has this always been the case?
At least they didn't lose $5billion.
Driver is human.
See, if Lyft is 10% cheaper, it means the drivers are likely to be getting paid less too. This means, drivers (who have both apps on their phones - Lyft and Uber) will flock to Uber because they will pay them more.
So if there are more cars and drivers for Uber, riders will have better experience and quicker pick-ups. People usually pick the app that has more drivers.
Risky operations? Sounds like a bunch of excuses to me!
They do get shot down quite often in war movies for sure. or those rescue movies (like San Andreas)
That is pretty darn packed. The middle pic looks more like a refugee camp.
I assume you can decline anything you want. I mean if you don't have the food, you don't have the food.
Not sure about medallions, but I am sure each car will be registered and closely monitored. and I am sure the # will be heavily regulated whether by the company itself or the authorities (cities/ordinances).
The reality of these things is still 10s of years in the future. Technologically maybe not, but politically and legally, nope.
These are opinion pieces. In other words, fake news.
Media loves this type of articles because they get clicks.
Nah, dude. The guy paid you already, and it's more than the $15. You guys are square. Let it go.
We always have that one girl who claims she can sit on another person. or lie across the 3 passengers in the back.
90%? Ha! Hilarious joke.
I am almost as excited as when I bought the GLOW BOWL last season.
It's funny because every Uber driver is technically a stranger.
This is interesting because they are trying to disrupt this but there’s no existing business model and precedence they’re replacing. Yes some people order food in the suburbs but not all the time. So I guess Uber will make it affordable but it doesn’t mean more people will order it. Or will they?
Wow, for real? That seems like a big change. Whatever it takes to keep making their drivers work harder, I guess.
So you earn it by being in a busy area (i.e. surge) but you don't get credit right away. You just make up the amount on the next trip regardless of what it is?
Do you know the amount of the bonus beforehand? So basically the new way of chasing the surge is to go to some locations to grab those bonus cashes.
Can you elaborate on what they do and why?
Are you saying they are drivers in queue, and somehow mess with other drivers’ phones, so they can move quicker up the airport queue?
Relevant thread. Are you wondering why your passenger ratings are so bad?
Do Uber drivers give negative reviews (1-star ratings) for short trips? I know they don't like them.
This talks to how some drivers, in protest against the system, give out only 1-star ratings for short trips (or any trips). It's a horrible practice, actually.
I also picked up these links, in case it helps:
Where do I find out my passenger ratings on Lyft?

Do drivers really rate passengers? What happens when my ratings are low?
