I think we all know we can just hand over good. the vending machine provides so much benefits here.
For one not all drivers want to be "selling" stuff. Have you tried offering something, the passenger says, yes, and you say that it isn't free? It's super uncomfortable. The thought crossed my mind to sell items in my car (like water and gum), but it was just hard and awkward. Maybe it's just me, but I prefer a vending machine to be honest. No need to describe anything, no weird criticisms,... having a legitimate machine gives you the credibility.
I like the automatic payment through QR code and such. I don't want to be dealing with money.
The covid thing plays into this too, sure. People are already super weird and nervous about taking Ubers. I think the vending machine is exactly what would make this valuable.
I have no idea of the finances. I think I like #1 the best. Send us the box for free and we pay commissions. You mention about our buying the box... I don't know. I guess it depends on how much it is.
This happens at every large corporation though. Not just Uber. McDonalds comes to mind.
This is why I’m a big supporter of small business owners. Fighting in the trenches, taking risks, and the company has to make money for them to make money
I think you are right.... However, I may have to challenge it because everyone else strongly suggests, "Yes, the drivers can do whatever they want because they are independent contractors."
I would imagine if you are an employee, sure, you are held by those laws to discriminate. However, if you are an individual just driving your own car, are you still held to the same laws?
Didn't they find the baker in Colorado have the right to NOT cook that wedding cake for that gay couple? I think he verdict was that he can discriminate because he shouldn't have to be forced to do render service for anyone.
This is interesting that both times, you kicked them out for canceling. I would imagine it'd be for puking or rude customers.
Agreed. but having 5-star does not mean you take it frequently. It may even be the opposite. So, 5-star is very irrelevant.
Discounts and privileges (and anything that comes out of a marketing department) are attached with the frequency the service is used, NOT how good of a driver you are. Therefore, it doesn't matter whether you are a 5-star riders or 1-star rider.
I am sure Lyft prefers to encourage riders to behave and become "better" riders, but not enough to hurt their bottom line.
Yes. lol. You are confusing the Taxi vs. Uber disussion with Employee vs. Contractor discussion.
I will add more to the list, Brian.
I am actually on the camp of not believing that Uber does this, but iPhone apps indeed do have access to the battery level.
How else can you build an app like this? One that shows you the battery level! :) Plus, I heard somewhere that many apps do check battery levels to potentially go into power-savings mode.
I usually don't think about it, but I usually try to not put myself in a situation where I can get long pickups, e.g. suburbs or sporadic areas. Stay in the populated areas and high turnovers. It's rare that we have a long pickup as long as you stay in the city.
With that said, I don't mind driving 10~15 minutes in the suburbs, but at least from my experience, those rides tend to be longer. I haven't had a scenario (like the ones drivers complain about) where I would drive 15 minutes to pick up someone and the ride is 1 mile. Nope. People who live in rural areas usually go far.
I know that isn't always true, but I am just saying I have'nt had too much trouble with it.
Hahaha, this is great.
He really doesn't like Uber, huh!
No, that's a typo. It's supposed to read Charring Lime Scooters. Obviously.

What’s so wrong with having FedEx or UPS come get my big box. It’s not like they aren’t available at all hours.
Those companies make a living on efficiency. I have a hard time believing someone can beat that through volunteer drivers.
Yes, sure Amazon is challenging them, but it all comes at a cost of drivers being underpaid and eventually blow up.
Happened to me.
If anything you'd lose tip on this. Is that how they are marketing this thing? For a positive ROI.
I hate UberEats, DoorDash and Grubhub. Tried them for 3 weeks each. It was okay as a supplemental one-offs gigs during slow periods, but I have to say; doing the math on an hourly pay was just plain sad.
Wow. Thank you. Very thorough and helpful.
I just had to look up Narcan, Damn. That could be a super useful medicine in case of emergencies.
As noble as this would be for a driver (and admire you for it) but that definitely is not a part of our driving responsibility. Even if I knew of a place that provides it for free, I just feel that seems like I am going too beyond my call of duty.
I am also worried about administering medicine into strangers in case things can go wrong. Unlike you, I do not have medical training, I am not licensed, and the chance of misdiagnosing the situation is too high. I also do not have insurance for such things in case something goes wrong. Price is too high for me to be "noble." Sorry.
