Does this affect the consumers/ riders?
What is UberPro. Is that like some earned status for good drivers? By ratings or something else?
Sorry. Non-driver here. Just curious.
It'll just be another task that can be "automated" and "replaced by robots." Whether it's packaging up food, building cars, or driving people, it's all the same to them. Just another way to create efficiency and make more money.
Oh, the beep thing? I just saw in Facebook advertising this. These keychain alarms.
Just for the record, they don't do jack.
Wait, are you saying they really do literaly ride around with you, aimlessly, as they explain stuff to you? Brochures, video ads, and all?
Do they request for a super long ride, so they have a lot of time to talk? (hence they cancel when you say no...right?)
I was half joking when I asked this question.
I blame Uber for this, but yeah, it's because the drivers are getting the bummed part of the deal. The prices are set way too low, 1/2 as much as taxis, in order for Uber to sign up more users and to spread their dominance. Drivers are paying the cost as the riders completely benefit.
Uber must know that drivers weren't going to make enough money when they did the math and set the prices. So they must be counting on how people will tip. Have our "salary" be subsidized by the riders. So, please, riders. You have to tip for this business model to work. It was designed that way by Uber.
