Amazon sucks for many reasons but not this particular case. Remember, they are looking up where the closest drivers are to the distribution centers so they can give them work.
These drivers are cheating the system and screwing other drivers who have returned from their previous pickup and are standing by for another delivery. They are also screwing people who are waiting for their deliveries because it'll take them much longer to get them.
I assume Amazon is smart enough to figure these people out though. Just look at those drivers who take forever to come pick up once accepting the order.
I blame the drivers for this. The drivers are taking advantage of the fact Amazon is trying to send work to those drivers who are close to their distribution centers. This is supposed to create efficiencies. By cheating the system, i.e. claiming you are close by even if you are not, hurts everyone, including those drivers who are playing by the rules and have been waiting faithfully close to the pickup.
I suppose it could be based on locality. Cost of life adjustment as well as how busy the area is for an Uber driver.
Slow periods. Like 10 to 11:30. or 1:30 to 3:00. The streets are pretty dead around those times, and you will always get the cheapest prices.
I'd like to also say in middle of the night, but the drivers are scarce so you never know.
Why is this even a discussion. Isn't this like the default thing that people do when hopping on a cab or an Uber? When alone, this must be what 80% of the riders do.
And please, the drivers talk on their phones ALL the time. It's like the way of life for both drivers and riders a like.
Or hiring of the drivers. And background checks.
That's probably what the insurance company let them after the last ding on their wallet.
Well, I’ve seen some with 4.97 and 4.98. That’s like receiving three one-star ratings after 100 rides (which yields 4.976).
4.90 is like receiving ten four-star ratings in 100 rides.
Yeah, so 5.00 is hard but weirdly 4.97 and 4.98 aren’t impossible.
OK, I will bite. I googled it.
It's a rideshare in San Antonio, TX. Their claim to fame is that it's a rideshare company built by rideshare drivers. (I've heard that before.)
Looks exactly like Uber. and I don't know if their fleet only consists of Jeeps. LOL.
I had no idea it was so cheap. It's no brainer then. Even if it's to clear up the ambiguity on whether it's under your insurance or Lyft's.
I will give my company a call and ask for it. If they don't have coverage, I will ask if I am covered. I am not scared to be upfront about it. Good point on potentially switching to one that does.
LYFT is just Lyft. and it's derived from the word, "lift." like an elevator in Britain.
Uber means douchebags in German.
Seems super expensive, no? I can rent a Hertz and Entrprise for this. 10 hour shift costs $50.
Dude, this is a nice concept. Can every driver story be told like this? Jazz, whiskey and ciagarettes?
I'd sit in a club for this. Well done.
You should check out this article. It's about a scam(ish) move by the driver where they arrive at the pickup location, but they hide around the block to incur either wait time or outright cancellation (to collect fees).
Scam alert?! The driver never shows up and cancels. Charges me $6.00 for no-show. Is this a thing?
Thanks, man. but I am even more confused now. LOL.
So, basically it says, "trust us. We will calculate it *accordingly*. So it comes down to a "trust" thing.
Anyone on this forum who has experience with GetAround?
I was looking into this too as I realized that driving Lyft on a family car is just too taxing. I started seeing EVERYTHING break on our car, even the things I didn't expect would like turn signals,wipers, etc. I guess driving takes a toll on everything.
In any case, I don't fully understand the cost of GetAround either. I asked them but sent me this page, and it confused me even further. There are million fees and I can't even start to do the math
They aleady responded to the appeal? Many expected this to take months and potentially years, and how that was how Uber wanted to play it. I mean, they nevere ceased operating. We all thought it was a delay tactic but they outright win it. How much did they spend on lobbists and throw cash under the table?
I just googled this. Is this really a thing?
Ooh, ooh, oooh!! know the answer!! You ask how much Uber is? I know...
It's the PRICE OF TAXIS, damn it. LOL
Well, the answer is definitely yes, right? If the dude is wearing ripped up clothes and just totally crappy, I may not tip as much thinking he just doesn't care.
Caring matters. Respect your job and hose around you.
