Access real time surge, wait times, and more.
That's right. Trips from O'Hare to *outside of the city* is charged 1.5x. That was a bold move they did. There was a huge uprising around that policy. People were up and arms about getting off right before the city limits and calling another cab. LOL.
Closet smoker? Where would you find a closte while you are on a shift?
ok bad joke.
I hate the name. It's like silicon valley smugness. Dumb. Makes me wanna rolll my eyes and say, Pleeeeeeeaassss...
well, maybe. It doesn't cost anything to sign up. People may not choose a rideshare career out of this, but Uber drivers may, right? I mean, why not?
They probably did some research and noticed that that particular segment of drivers had a soft spot for recording studio.
...yeah, I get it. A bit weak on that argument, but...
Wait, isn't there something very non-kosher about this where Uber is swapping NJ drivers to Philly? Isn't that like skriting the rules set forth by Philly? Typical Uber....
I would assume Philly wanted drivers go through vehicle inspections, and apparently they didn't require them to have PA license plate. So, perhaps Philly got what they wanted for that reason, but I wonder if Philly drivers (those who actually live there) are pissed off about this
Why is everything so hard with Uber?
Treat your driver the way you would others whose service makes your life better and easier. Even better, treat your driver the way you would want to be treated if you were the one behind the wheel.
Even a $1 tip means a lot to most of us. Because that tip has meaning that goes way beyond the amount of money. Because any tip tells us you appreciated our effort. That means so much more than a 5 star rating (which is nice).
Excuse the generalization but Uber and Lyft drivers are known to be a-holes,and they usually do not accommodate such request. I have seen drivers who have denied wheelchairs of a disabled women before. (I was called as a backup.)
Pay attention to your grocery habits for a few weeks. You will realize that you buy the same exact things over and over again.
like the segways/
Wait, what? Isn't this old news? I thought they shut down like a year ago, and it was something to do with a data breach. or did it happen again?
They really do have to hide driver information so certain drivers, so they do not get discriminated against or targetted.
so, basically the short answer is it depends on if the cause of refudn was the driver's fault or not.
Trying to follow the math. So do you make $24 an hour? Is that what it comes down to?
I heard from a friend Uber driver this interesting tidbit. Drivers definitely lose money on certain rides, and a good portion of all the rides end up losing them money. You just have to make up for those loses by making sure to have good rides, that are longer and maybe under surge.
...and this is why the seasoned drivers who can cherry pick (or at least know when, where, and how to work) can make good profits but others don't.
I hope he is successfully driving an Uber now.
Uber and Lyft are great, so I commend them for that, but I agree that the way they bullied and played the game was just not right. Didn't bother to follow the regulations knowing that people would look away and figured it'd take the market years to react or do anything about it (they were right).
Are we bringing back the medallion system? All that hoopla for the last few years and Ubers will just be taxis all over again? Then we will repeat the same mistake we did with the taxi industry.
It was like the purge of the taxi drivers, because if this is the direction we are going, Uber drivers will just be medallion/license carrying workers just like taxi drivers were.
I think Uber entertained this idea in the past. However, they deemed it too difficult to implement. Imagine the complexity in the ordering process? How does a pax request a higher rated drivers and pay/offer more money? What if they aren't available? Do they have to specifically have to ask for cheaper and worse drivers if they wanted a barain?
sure, man. awesome. you do you.
Who the heck sits in the front seat? That's just weird.
I think there are many challenges:
