Those phantom rides. Uber barely shows up now, especially at the airports. There is so much demand for riders that drivers are cancelling all trips until they get the one they want. I hear it's really not an option in many locations and you better not even try.
Have you tried calling one on weekends? The 3x 4x surge is normal and even then drivers don't show up. What's most frustrating is how they cancel on the way to you, which make you go back to the app and start all over again.
Take a taxi to the airport.
Is that 6 minutes until pick up? Maybe the trip is longer?
I haven't used Uber in forever. I can't remember the interface anymore.
Didn't Domino's try this? Basically food delivery and pickup locations.
Yes....they have. Right? Yep.
These stats can show anything.
Just take a look at single city as an example. In Manhattan the congestion got so bad that it was obvious to all. It was even visible to the public that rideshare drivers would double park their cars EVERYWHERE. (It makes sense, right? There are ZERO public parking or places to pullover, so where do drivers go between fares?)
Forget the stats. It was affecting people's lives, people driving, police officers yelling at people. These were REAL happneings no stats can explain.
I am speaking in past tense, because they are trying to fix it now by the caps.
There was a Guru discussion on this before.
Do drivers have to enforce seat belt use to the passengers?
Basically, it says you are right. While there is a level of responsibility to assure safety, drivers do not seem to be responsible for passengers wearing seat belts.
Fake incident? This video can absolutely not be faked. That guy is a super douche. No one can fake the level of douchebaggery this guy portraid. Not even Brya Cranston can act this good. All of this wasting everyone's time, sounding like he knows what he's doing ("his rights?" LOL), and bringing up crap like race which was completely not relevant. ARg, this makes me so mad.
In fact I wish I never saw the video. Absolutely awful. Makes me lose faith in human beings.
In Chicago, you can't even see the ratings of people. It's a law or something.
Someone’s been reading Dr Seuss.
This is the summary of what it says in the aforementioned Inc. article.
Tipping creates uncertainty about ride costs and driver wages, according to Uber. “We felt it would be better for riders and drivers to know for sure what they would pay or earn on each trip -- without the uncertainty of tipping,” reads the statement. Surge pricing and decreases in the per-mile driver payment rate mean wages are already uncertain.
In the Medium post, Uber says it fears a tipping button would encourage drivers to spend more time in neighborhoods where riders give more generous tips, which could lead to higher concentrations of cars in wealthier neighborhoods and central business districts.
Uber argues that the general practice of tipping in the service industry does not improve service and that tips are unfairly impacted by the prejudices of customers. It’s a fair argument, and there are studies to prove the points, including one Uber cites from Cornell University. But for all the faults of tipping, service workers depend on tips, as the attorney for Uber drivers in the recent settlement pointed out to The Verge.
Do you mean upon pick up or drop off? If the driver arrives "early" and the rider isn't ready, yeah, you get charged. The meter starts to run. The clock starts depending on when the driver arrives.
How is this a new article? I've seen this thing for months. maybe a year..no?
So what do you find the most of in your backseat? This can be an interesting topic.
Drivers, can you share?
well, we don't know the whole story. Batteries are batteries. They probably sat out in the got heated to 180degrees and melted and blew up.
Give more incentives to higher rated and experienced drivers more. and by incentive, a higher rate.
This will keep the verteran and quality drivers engaged and working harder. There'd be more incentive to have higher ratings as well.
This will also increase retention and not let drivers keep going to new rideshare companies. I think it's a no brainer.
I've never taken one, but I'd like to think these things are super cheap? Plus, it's not necessarily from your house to places, right? It could just be to get around from where you already are.
Well, whether people have accounts in both is moot. It's what they use in general. I am sure certain population or demographic would lean towards one side than other.
You should read this article. It'll explain everything:
What is the cleaning fees SCAM by Uber drivers? Should I be concerned? How do I avoid them?
So this is related to UberRUSH ending.
"Uber put a stop to the grocery partnership when it informed Walmart in March that it would cease delivery operations on June 30, Uber spokeswoman Ellen Cohn told Reuters. The retailer was Uber’s largest partner for its ‘Rush’ service, which delivered groceries as well as clothes, flowers and other goods.
Uber will shutter the entire Rush program at the end of next month."
