Yes, I would miss my 2PM naps.
They've been doing this for the last year.
I don't drive XL or Lux. :)
The government's goal is to make driving a full time job, like it was for taxis before. Why the heck would we want to go back to that? I guess it's natural that the taxi market fell apart?
It's a big full circle. We are about to REVERT all the great things Uber has done . I cannot believe California's stance is that we go back to the original crappy taxi system.
I am that shameful driver who has let the phone die in the past. I also had a period where the Uber app would continuously crash on me. you are right that most of the time, it came back up, but sometimes, the app will just act like there was no ride at all.
I wonder if there is like an auto-cancel built in?
Drivers can't constantly be worried about what will happen to their passengers after they are dropped off. Please stop pointing fingers about your own problems.
I think she means that all people's lives are beautiful.
But, yes, she is saying old people's lives aren't beautiful. j/k!!
The problem about the name check is that once the info is divulged you can no longer rely on it anymore. So if you slip and blurt out your name (or your friend yells it out, e.g. “Goodbye, Steph!”, there’s no longer another way to verify the identity of the driver. This isn’t reliable at all.
I’d hate for the code thing. Can we just check the vehicle information and license plate that rely on state mandated info and be okay with it?
As for protecting the drivers, yeah, that part makes sense. Drivers just need to know what to ask for.
"I drove out of the surge, I was offered rides--but regardless, the surge continued on and riders were forced to pay the high amount "
Under the new surge system, the surge follows you once you enter a surge area. You just have to hit it, and even if you leave, the next ride gets hit with a surge. I know it doesn't seem fair to the rider, but that's just the way it works now.
So much talk and no one is sure. "Some" will get some. "if the ipo goes successfully.
Then some are so negative.
Some experts are already expressing concerns about the gesture, suggesting it could be an olive branch intended to mitigate a potential public relations nightmare about how the company treats its drivers."I see it as an effort to ward off negative publicity when they will be most vulnerable to publicity," said Thomas Kochan, George Maverick Bunker professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management, told CNN Business.

There were lots of talks around this. Like how stocks were offered to top Lyft drivers and Uber is still considering it
I never looked into them but I guess they alll were just rumored fanned by the media or hopeful drivers themselves.
You hit on the nail that some people are about to get uber rich.
Hahaha, clever. and a good answer. I try to only be out only for surge times so hopefully I don't have much down time
You have to do the math. IS $40 worth it? If you went home, that would be 3 hours round-trip to your home plus half tank of gas at $25. So that's $15 for 3 hours or $5/hour. Is that worth it to you?
Oh, then you have to take into account the wear on your car, tolls, and parking...
Oh, the places I have slept. So embarrassing to admit it. I think I can be qualified as homeless in most states.
My poor music selection.
Those user feedbacks are a riot.
I cannot agree more with this. Simple yet effective.
Some people have stronger sense of smell than others. I had someone puke in my car a month ago, and even though I cannot smell anything, a few still complain.
It’s a pre-IPO attempt to convince investors they have a plan for their poor driver retention.
Yes it’s likr a perk package. It’s funny because we aren’t employees. I’m sure it’ll be another benefits website that no drivers go to.
I thought it was the status of a driver who is in middle of a UberEats fare.
I'd love to roll as never picking up underage passengers EVER, but I highly suspect I have been driving them. If they have an Uber account, they are supposed to be 18. None of my business...right?
It's not like I am trying to drive underage people. They just ignore the rules and use Uber anyways. Sure, I guess I can be checking people's IDs but that's easier said than done. If the passenger is always on the car, that'd be the easiest way to get a negative rating.
I don't mean to use ignorance (of not kwowing the age) as an excuse, but how can I be at fault if it's those people breaking the rules and not me.
What's Uber's stance on this anyways? I am thining nothing.
