Definitely not. Clothing too uncomfortable to be a full-time Uber driver.
I see what Lyft is trying to say, but their stance is heavily arguable. They make it sound pretty but st the end of the day, they are trying to play with the supply and demand to their advantage. They’re bullying the drivers and messing with free market.
Right. We have always know this but Uber kept claiming they’re not. (In order to skirt the laws and regulations.)
And now all the taxi companies are gone and we have done a full circle.
We will just end up back being taxi drivers. Uber exploded and now it'll implode back to just a regular taxi company, where the drivers are dedicated full-time professionals.
The concept of rideshare and people driving in their spare time... whatever happened to that?
Free UberEats delivery? There must be restrictions LOL
Even drivers cannot wait for the driverless car at this point.
I totally mistyped my previous message. What I meant to type was:
Maybe the riders don't know that drivers know that they tipped. That's the only explanation this dude never tipped even after some conversations.
I had a repeater I drove over 20 times and not once he tipped. I started to mention about tipping but he never did.
You know what’s funny? I think the riders don’t know whether they’ve tipped or not. Maybe that’s the problem?
Here you go
What garbage. $1B valuation. hehehe.
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
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?
