This driver is my hero. Infinite patience. It's like Master Oogway level from Kung Fu Panda.
Remember that's how Lyft used to approach the market? Come join in on fun conversations with normal people. Sit up front and chat! Look out for the mustache!
You just answered my question. So there is NOT a national registry for these animals? There aren’t any IDs or whatever vendors and authorities can check? That’s crazy to me.
Is UberExpress the one that makes me walk to the end of my road (about 50 yards) and to save me $0.28? Yeah, it's a horrible concept. I actually thought about trying it but I figured it was too much trouble for me and the driver alike. (I live in a suburb in the woods. It'd save no time for the driver, and it's doubtful I'd be able to pool the ride with anyone else on my street with 4 houses on it.)
I was telling myself it must work better in the city. More like a bus, but when I think logistics? It's hard to picture it working.
Umm, maybe he is a driver who wants to bring along a friend? Dog or gramps.
Can we require every citizen to work in the customer handling business at least once in their life time?
I didn't realize that they don't match good to good.
Do they at least give the better rated drivers more rides somehow? or is it purely based on distance? I'd think it'd be good to reward the highly rated drivers by offering the rides to them first. Then if those drivers decline those rides, the scraps (like me at 4.73) to the lowly rated drivers.
...but thanks for the tip! I don't think I am an offender of any of those things, but I guess I got some work to do!
What what what? Where does this 4.70 come from? I just checked mine and it's 4.73. I am in trouble? Is that a bad score?
I knew (or think I know) that Uber matches up good riders to good drivers, but I didn't know you guys saw it and could decline service.
So my Uber requests are being tossed around like a hot potato, until it lands in the hands of a desperate crappy driver. Maybe that's why I get the creepsters.
Hooray to communication.
9. Nine 5-star ratings after a 1-star rating will bring you back up to 4.6.
Uber of Middle East joins Uber, huh.
Careem is dominant in the Middle East. I am curious if this will be a precedence for how Uber will attempt to handle 99, Didi, Ola, Grab, etc.
Well if Black Cabs operators are smart, they'll just start using Uber on their phones. Can they do that?
Wait, CAN THEY DO THAT? Just drive around and use the Uber App?
What about in NYC? Why don't Yellow cab drivers just drive for U berX at the same time?
True Uber style. Works over and over.
"The closely watched case could serve as a template for other cities looking to extract concessions from Uber, the ride-hailing service that has upended the taxi industry worldwide, often by ignoring the concerns of regulators. The company suffered a major setback with that approach last fall, when the transport authorities in London — its most lucrative European market — withdrew its license. It has been able to continue to operate through the appeals process."
Yeah, aren't corporate values supposed to be more like, "Honesty", "Transparent", "Agile", etc.?
Slightly confused. Are you referring to the initial pickup or subsequent stops on a multi-destination ride where there is a 2-minute limit?
I am asking because I often would like to pick up a friend on the way into town, and my friend could take more than 2 minutes to come out. I do this now by simply asking the driver to make a stop, but I have never used the multiple stops feature your article mentions.
What happens if if the stop takes more than 2 minutes? Does the ride end?
and I assume even during those 2 minutes, the clock continues to tick, correct?
The list from JessMin and Uber are pretty good, but I got a few more to add.
Keep a protective device or pepper spray on you
You sound like an expert.
Instead of sitting in the wood watching Netflix, can't you be working for another company. Like Lyft? Wouldn't that double your pay.
