This all ends when auto robot taxis roam the streets. This is just some last hurrah.
This reminds me of the HotSpot name at a crowded airport. It had the ID, “yell penis for free WiFi.”
This is the upfront pricing thing by Uber, right? Giving us the price quote in the app *before* we book it.
This is why Uber doesn't publish its rates anymore per hour per mile thing. Now, the big question is whether this matches their calculator.
I am actually not sure if I think this is necessarily unethical. Limos do this all the time. Even airplanes and public transportation. Pre-determined price regardless of how long it takes. Maybe we are too stuck on the taxi model?
Because it’s obvious. No need for experiment to prove such an obvious point. LOL
Yes, but this is definitely accurate. 120%.
But it’s definitely accurate though. It’s beyond accurate. a sample pool of one would have been enough.
When they say 8 hours, I’m sure they’re picking up passenger during those 8 hours. So they just keep picking up rides and at some point they could be eight hours away. It probably happened once.
And no, I didn’t read the whole article
You should write a book. It sounds like an excellent plot (or perhaps a twist) on the next Grisham novel.
A bomb delivery device, where you can literally specify when and where the bomb will go and be detonated. Genius (evil) plan.
Wow, for real, a sting? I feel like they don't have to run a sting (and offer a $20) to find people who do this. I mean, I think I see Uber drivers doing this often at the Departure floor.
Perhaps they have to make it a sting or it's too hard to arrest them. At the end of the day, they can just claim it's just one driver picking up an acquaintance..
You sure you wanna drive in SoCal?
short riders and small tips? that's what percentage is, buddy.
1-star rating just for that sign.
I mean, that would be my duty to society. I must warn others.
No, this has never happened to me but I suppose this can happen. My busy Uber driver gets requests for the next ride while still driving me. So they must be hopping from one job to another. Eventually they will be out of gas.
Can the driver still rate a passenger if you cancel a trip mid-ride?
