Please take our quick (2 question) survey on tipping your rideshare drivers and automatically be entered to win one of 5 RideGuru Swag Bags!
It could be the riders trying to get free rides. They drop some complaints in hopes they will get a refund for their rides. It's so messed up.
What's that app with the quote icon?
Wat. where's the monitor? ...or is that a millenial question?
"What country are you from?"
At least with the taxi drivers, this always brings up great conversations.
Offer a cash reward. Despite what you believe, it isn't his responsibility to return the phone to you.
If you had already offered cash and he i sitll responding in this manner, you must have offended him. because frankly, people usually won't say to money.
It's brilliant. They got their hooks into the US travel industry. Did it overnight. Great move.
I am sure some jerks do make these claims to get free things. I see them in retail and restaurants, where people make claims against the stores. I didn't realize this was happening in taxis and rideshares.
What I find fascinating is how this is being shared with others. Like this person is proud of it.
Some drivers forbid food in the car? Crap, is that rude for me if I had food? It didn't even cross my mind. I eat fast food and drink my coffee all the time. Granted I mak sure to be clean and leave no mess.
Do these even count as "uber drivers." I think we are all challenging the technicality department.
I think thre was like ZipCar Uber partnership where you couldn't rent a car for $15 a day or something.
"Clothing." Like what? I assume jackets, fleeces, hats and stuff?
RideGuru covered this actually.
With an RedBull exampe and all.
Way things are right now, your actions will always be tied to being an Uber driver What an impact you have for the entire industry. Whatever you do as an Uber driver affects the direction of the whole market. What responsibility!!
I find it fascinting that they have separate entries for Taxis vs. Uber/Lyft.
The funnier is that the info is similar. 10~20%. but $1 for shorter trips.
Here's the link Jeto download it.
Here are seven that I have seen. I am not sure where it originally came from, but I keep it handy and sent it out to my female colleagues.
Confirm the name of the driver and make of the vehicle.
Check the driver’s rating.
Share your trip details with friends or family.
Avoid riding in the front seat.
Follow along in your own maps app.
Travel in groups when possible.
Trust your gut.
You are right. I didn't even think of this before. We are being rated as paying customers. Does that happen in any other industry? That would be like buying something on Amazon and being rated by the way I picked up my package. Or waitresses at Chili's rating how I ate
Then again, eBay. And AirBnB. I guess there are two participating parties, and we want both ends to be held accountable? Perhaps this is the new age way. No longer a definitive line between providers and consumers
I actually have had a taxi driver who brought her dog on her shift. but the kicker? It was a service animal, with proper vest and license and all.
I was like, "oh, ok." but really, in hindsight, it was a bit weird. The dog was super behaved, it was adorable, the driver was professional, but I feel like it really doesn't belong there. Again, what if it wants to go in middle of a long trip? Pullover while I wait?
I actually don't know what the handicap of the driver was either. Could it have been sight? Then how was she driving? Maybe I've been had. LOL.
Little hard to see, but can you see this? The icon to the right of "Where to?"
This is the worst thread ever. You guys are tainting those new innocent drivers.
