That’s the thing about taxis. They’re clearly marked with the company name and often bright yellow! You’d really have to be committed to kidnapping someone driving a marked taxicab.
This is why they’re trying to require Uber and Lyft drivers to have lit signs on their dash. The problem? Anyone can buy them on eBay.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. The name is one mechanism we all have for safety.
Dara is probably on the hook to stay, by contract, for x months after the IPO. With that said, I am sure he wants to leave now that he can cash in his stocks and make 100s of millions.
The thing is, power/money hungry is exactly what the investors want. Those are the characteristics they look for; Job requirement, if you will. LOL.
I don’t get how this is possible that the riders don’t know. I’m a frequent rider and when I complete a trip, I see the tip buttons displayed large and obnoxiously on the center of the screen. You would have to try hard to ignore or NOT tip.
I can’t remember at the moment, but out of the three circles (the suggested amounts), none are $0 or “No tip”, right? So the rider would have to go out of the way to NOT tip.
Uber wastes a lot of money on side projects like autonomous cars and Uber Airport (or whatever it's called)
Not sure why Lyft loses money. lol
All these companies like GrubHub, UberEats, and DoorDash have to keep competing because that's where the market is going. The same is true for restaurants too. Unless they compete, they will lose.
I’m sure there are efficiencies to be gained by using drivers that already on the road to perform the delivery. However, the drivers are providing feedback and the economics just do not seem to make sense. It still costs gasoline to deliver the burritos from TacoBell
“Food delivery from anywhere” is just an unnecessary nonsense, another luxury item America doesn’t need.
We already have food delivery being offered by individual food establishments. Have four of those near you in every category and we are all good. Italian, Chinese, Indian, and something else.
Why would we need food delivered from fast food restaurants? No amount of “efficiency” can make this work in the long run.
Why are they being so reckless with the rollout? Why support McDonalds and TacoBell? I feel like that’s not the clientele they would want in this infancy stage of the new business model. Why not stick with larger restaurants with larger unit costs? Applebee’s, Chilli’s, popular restaurants, etc WHY FAST FOOD?
Is the allure of having the service available for anyone that important? This like a race to the bottom.
Oh, snap. what a fantastic question.
The drivers definitely take advantage of this. Customers cannot rate them until a ride is complete, meaning that if the trip never starts or a ride is cancelled, they cannot be rated.
So they can employ every trick in the book and they will get away with it. This is a huge problem Uber really needs to address.
CAn we stop posting this crap.
There are million reasons for Uber to service underage kids, but no "uber for kids" businesses have succeeded so far. I wonder what the issue is. Liability? Insurance?
I am feeling queasy and carsick watching this video. I actually sense that the guys are too. Anyone see it? LOL
I am pretty sure many of these female-oriented companies shutdown or were at least criticized by the concern you bring up. This is more from an angle of employment, where the company couldn't just hire women (or men) as that would be gender discrimination against men.
If you go to Safr's website and go to their employment (driver) page, you will see that there are both gender drivers. You, as a rider, can request any gender.
I am not sure if it's discrimination by the consumer to specify man or woman.
Does anyone have an update on this? How is Didi doing in Japan?
Until recently, I would have labeled this as “another article where the person involved happens to be an Uber driver”, but I’m seeing a common theme Maybe this is indeed a problem
Leslie. or Shane. or Alex. or Dana.
This is why I aways tip in cash. I am starting to see more tip boxes (some that light up) these days anyways.
So I have to make sure I carry cash. So much for the cashless experience.
This must be one of those 180 days to recover or whatever campaign. I've used Uber since the early days, when they only had Black Cars, and I swear they got rid of all phone numbers. It's good to see they decided to hire 3/hour call center staff for us. yipee.
