Still getting replies two years later! 😁 Thanks!
I don't understand why people are giving drivers things as tips.
I assume they aren't really meant to be tips or to replace tips. They are just giving things for the sake of being nice, right?
PLUS ONE. In fact, the Uber app suggests the passengers to keep their windows open.
Is this concern the reason I get so many cancellations or really long time waiting for a driver to accept?
Is Uber limiting the length of trips for Covid concerns? (or did they?) That's super interesting. I had no idea they were doing that.
The back. Where normal people sit. Whichever side you want.
Actually... I have heard for females (or anyone for that matter), you may want to sit behind the driver. There's been examples of where the drivers would pull up against a wall, blocking the passenger side door from opening. Then they would attack from the other side. Scary.
Ah, so you are in the camp of checking the user app. That's a neat trick. I wonder if it's accurate though. When I request a ride, never once I feel like one of the cars I see on the map had responded.
I think you are speaking of taxi drivers. That's how I used to feel when I used to take them living in New York. I'm a complete convert for the last 3 years (~50 rides?), and I haven't had a single mean driver. What I like about Uber driver is that they drive their own car and run their own business. Each one seems to be proud of what they do and appreciative of the money they make. Not a single time I felt like they seemed entitled and looked down on the passengers. (unlike some taxi drivers)
One driver got cranky on me once, but that was entirely my fault. I opened the door to pick up a friend on the curb, and I opened the door against this concrete sidewalk divider.
Hats aren't clothing.
...wait, are they?
There are definitely some confusion as to the intent of such feature.
"Notifying drivers when a passenger is drunk could save those drivers the headache of hauling around an out-of-control passenger, or prevent drivers from dealing with passengers who puke in their car, which may lead to disputed charges. But the system described in this patent could also allow for predatory behavior by malicious drivers"
Yeah...and speaking of predatory behavior, that may even involve drivers who look for clean up fees.
Wait I also remember this.
Oh, was it Kuaidi One?
Billionaires live amongst us in NYC. He probably didn't have smaller denomination in his pocket.
You should think like a user and see what could be the problem. My guess?
The user requested a ride, and then realized that it'll take too long for the driver to arrive. The Uber app indicates the wait time before you request a ride, but the reality is that it isn't accurate. It's not common for me to have the wait time go double or triple on a busy night. (Those cars on the map are so inaccurate. In most cases, I pretty much think those are fake cars randomly placed on a map.)
I agree, but I will add "...as long as they are not smelly."
I hate to say it, but too many I have noticed do break this rule.
That actually really puts this into perspective. So, this was truly a greenlight for the Ubers to operate in NYC. That is crushing for those poor taxi drivers.
Wait, why are taxi drivers complaining with these sky high fees? Oh, it's because this essentially gave Ubers a greenlight to proceed working in Manhattan?
This is like a security company saying, "we had all these sensors and alarms, but we didn't have them on. So it's not our fault you got robbed."
Right, and it was one of the most dangerous occupation ever.
Let's flip this. If you were driving someone and he didn't want to tell you who he was, how would you feel about that? Someone who had a reason to hide their identity. Not cool, right?
This is what's great about Uber. Let's not ruin it.
Yes, I basiscally assume I am being recorded all the time when I am out of my house. especially in an uber.
