autonomous cars aren't coming for at least 10+ years. We need a solution way before that, and Uber won't.
I see so many issues with this. For example, how would it known when all the children have boarded and have been seated? What if there was an injury as the kid climbs on the bus?
What if a predator gets on the bus and hijacks it?
Kids need supervision. School drivers do so much more than just "drive."
As I mentioned on a few other threads, Lyft is thinning out the drivers with whatever reasons they can come up with. They are doing this in certain markets because there are too many drivers for the current demand - in order to keep the average pay at a reasonable level. They are either required to do this by the lawmakers or by the publicity they need to keep up.
Lyft is known to thin out the drivers when their business isn't doing well. They make weird reasoning and basically stop returning your calls.
They do this in markets where they feel are too many drivers, because they feel average pay is becoming too low.
In some markets, they have to report the average pay to the authorities and if it falls under a certain threshold, they have to control the # of drivers. Technically, they don't have to have a reason to fire their drivers, (as it is all independent contractors with no benefits), but it's been brutal for many.
It also plays into their publicity too. If drivers in certain markets say they are only getting paid $10,000 a year, it'll be more difficult for them to find drivers in markets the drivers are scarce.
Lyft is known to "thin out the drivers" in places where they feel there are too many. They need to do this to keep up the demand (vs. supply) and get the drivers who are getting paid be paid.
They have to do this to keep up the average pay or their reputation amongst the drivers are hurt (yes, ironic)
They use the lamest excuses to make this happen, including looking for any complains or issues, whether they are justified or not.
Drivers should definitely not take it out on the rider, but short trips do sort of stink, especially when it gets you out of the queue (think airport), it is a long distance to the pickup, or the pickup itself takes a long time.
Driving Uber is about maximizing time, and these time wasters are very annoying. Again not the customer's fault. (well, sometimes the last point is. When they aren't there at the pickup location.)
I’m an driver myself. Yes, we are supposed to wear masks, and the app constantly reminds me to do so. However, I do not see other Eats and DoorDash drivers wearing masks at all. I can't even report them.
Maybe you don't need to while driving, but AT LEAST put them on when you are picking up the food and hopefully when you are dropping it off. Come on.
