Well, not really. So the first degree is the driver (with Covid-19) to the riders. The second degree would be the riders to the drivers. This second hop may not be that much. I mean, how many rides do each person get in a few days?
Gosh, that'd suck for a driver that gets dinged on that second degree. Drive a passenger with no symptoms and no virus, and you still get suspended or labeled?
They’re desperate to survive and be part of these initiatives. Continuing to play the role of a good guy
Sorry. That was meant to be a reply for Saurabh. He mentioned he’ll eventually sign up for Lyft if he got deactivated from Uber
Why wait to sign up? Can’t they both be active. It doesn’t cost anything.
I’m just trying to make a living, mate
Why didn’t the Uber car beep to warn the human driver?
This is a common occurrence, and is a normal part of the weekend for an Uber driver. If you work Friday nights or Saturday nights, you are pretty much guaranteed to hit a few of these.
More people fall asleep in cabs than you think. On long rides at the end of the day, I feel like I have people nodding off half the time. (and I get it. People are tired from the day, and it's one place they can relax.) Most people would wake up when getting to the destination.
The rule of thumb for those who do not wake up, is to take them to the nearest police station. This has only happened to me twice. Once the dude woke up on the way to the police station, so I had to turn around again. The other, the police officer came out, made sure the passenger didn't need medical attention, and told me I could leave. (which was nice because I was afraid he'd make me drive the dude back to his house.)
Driving an Uber is all about maximizing your time. We go wherever we can get the most rides without wasting time.
This sounds easy. You'd think we can just pick a place we like and stay there all day. People forget that we have to leave that area to carry the passenger. It usually doesn't make sense to drive all the way back to our "favorite spot."
Every driver has his or her technique but I have a few favorite spots, and try to get to those locations. These may be general areas or specific places like transportation hubs (train stations), colleges, town centers, etc. The tricky thing is that these need to be adjusted depending on the day and time.
I haven't seen that inquiry, but it must be due to identifying whether your car fits into another category. Like a level of service.
or maybe for covid safety. Leather is easier to clean by simply wiping.
I mean is it even legal.
I also feel tacky but more so that I feel like I’m doing something illegals. Like some drug dealer on a street corner.
“Here, I’m not a convenience store, but I bought some Snickers at Bjs and you can buy them for $3 each. You want some?”
white dude problems.
Isn’t unorganized catastrophe a bit redundant? Are there really organized catastrophe? LOL
Sure, a “friend.”
Honest though? That’s genius.
Thinking back to when I signed up, I can’t imagine going through the entire application without having a car. Maybe lots of things have changed since.
This makes sense though. So many people wonder whether they can qualify and it makes sense to not invest in a vehicle until you know. (Or can rent a car)
Already happening. Maybe not as bad as buying a medallion, but I know people who are buying cars on a crazy loan in hopes they will successfully start up third Uber business. I’ve also seen UberX drivers buy a luxury car to bump themselves up to UberBlack, and these are people who have no business taking large loans on nice cars.
All I can think about is that the risk is too high. One deactivation can ruin a driver.
Gotta think twice of making it a business when the job was originally designed to be a part-time, off-the-cuff, side job.
See, the problem about this strike is that it’s for all rideshare services.
If they wanted to really convince the masses, they should have asked everyone to turn off Uber tomorrow but allowed to use Lyft. Then we will have another abandon Lyft day next week or something.
At least this way, we won’t be out of a job tomorrow.
Umm, nope. A Lyft driver would be considered a stranger. Plus, the driver isn’t supposed to take the child even.
If you left your five year old kid at a park, that isn’t “putting your kid in the protection of other park goers.”
