Haha, yes! Worldly is a good thing
Weren’t you in another city for anther interview last week.
You are so worldly.
That’s fair and you should do what’s most beneficial to you. If some passengers get stranded, I think that’s the fault of the system, not the drivers.
When we think back to the taxi days, they picked up every passengers, all drivers. I think the attitude was, “you win some and you lose some, it all works out in the end.”
Only if Uber paid enough (meaning they paid out way more on the “win trips”) that model would work.
I totally get where you are coming from so this isn’t a dig at your comment. It’s a serious question
Who should fill that void to take these customers that fall under the “garbage pings?” In other words, people who don’t have drivers nearby (whether by poor timing or living too far away from a busy area).
People need a reliable transportation, meaning a service that will be available when they need it.
That seems low, but the capitalism plays out. As long as there are still people willing to drive (and enough of them), Uber will continue to lower the prices.
My recollection serves me correctly, didn’t they used to require it? And the full name would appear to the drivers.
I also remember how this became a problem because drivers were allegedly cherry picking up riders based on race and gender.
If you are a restaurant though, why NOT use it. You are still running your restaurant business, making food, servicing their customers. If a few additional orders come in and it's not your drivers or staff getting slammed, why not have the extra income stream?
There are no downside unless the cooks/kitchen becomes too busy and it affects the establishment's level of service.
I agree with other responders that the rides aren’t guaranteed but I think there are some mechanisms they employ to encourage drivers.
With Uber, you do work with a representative from Uber, so you should ask these questions to them then
But the irony is that on a site like eBay, people were likely to buy more if it’s $1.00 than $0.99
you guys don't seem to be supported on RideGuru
Well, UberBlack also has to be a registered livery car, no?
LOL haha haha. “DickSwallower?!” Definitely a doing of a drunk college kid.
I didn’t know you can change your name that easily. Must be a nickname field or something.
I think you missed one. You probably need to contact Uber, right? I wouldn’t even know what to say, but that seems like something we should do.
The least, ask for the fare back.
LOL. I like.
Trump administration got rid of the do-not-call-list.
I've used Limos.com. Learned about JayRide and zTrip. There are so many limo companies who are all equipping themselves with nice apps. I welcome these advancements.
Such commodity now. and these are all livery driver networks.All drivers sign up for these
That's a scam indeed. You have to keep disputing that. Uber has mechanisms in place to verify the authenticity of the photos, say checking the timestamp, checking the car type, etc.
While clever drives can fake out Uber, eventually this will catch up to them as long as all the riders dispute and challenge their claims.
"white dudes who look like they like rap." LOL.
Yeah, I have had some no-show charges on my statements. I always wish I had seen the email receipt, but I rarely pay attention to those. (I guess that's my fault.) They are $5, so I usually ignore them, but perhaps reading stuff like this makes me think twice.
I went to San Diego last week, and those scooters were absolutely everywhere. It was eye opening the way it has changed the culture there. They litter the streets and they looked really horrible. It's a market disruption and also a societal disruption. Someone has to do something.
