I think this is one of those myths that gets passed along quicker because it's more interesting to hear the irony. I think the truth is more obvious. People who have more money tip more.
Thank you for the info. helpful.
Don't we all? So kickass.
Fubar is slang (mangled German) for the word "Furchtbar" which means terrible or horrible -- Think of it as the opposite of "Wunderbar." Furcht means fear, literally translated, and the "bar" is added to make it an adverb or noun, as the case may be. Notice that "Wunderbar" translates literally into wonderful. By contrast, you should treat Furchtbar as an idiom and translate it to mean terrible or horrible.
So in that case, Uber eats it, right? The charge won't go back to the customer? I guess the GPS and toll calculations aren't perfect yet.
One of the articles posted by the guru mentions how they sometimes overcharge. like the bridge from Philly to Jersey side. It's supposed to only be charged for the ride back, but they charge the passenger both directions. It's supposed to protect the driver who may need to eat it on the way back.
Boober? It sounds like something Daniel Tosh would bring up on Comedy Central.
I am gonna be a karma whore and go post this as a post.
While I agree with your points on why I would feel "free", I fall in the camp of someone who drives into the city sometimes spending 1 hour each way. I don't want to do it but i have to, and I do feel trapped. Then once I am downtown, I gotta do something about the car. I have to stress over where to park. I first look at street parking, sometimes park little outside the city and take the subway in, and sometimes I pay $30. The car becomes a liability and a huge baggage. I've even thought about buying a motorcycle but my wife doesn't let me. (she's afraid I will kill myself. probably a sound advice as I am not that coordinated)
So I don't feel that free anymore when I look at it in this light.
Or the hint just needs to be more than just rolling down the window. Maybe the drivers were just hot or payin' the toll.
I am surprised it took them for a while, especially with Waymo's entrance in the market AND Waymo and Uber's legal battles. (which was recently settled, right?)
Only if the blond in the picture just looks back, she'll see that the driver is right there. I mean, just look. stop looking at the phone.
This is why we can't have nice things. Why does the society be like this.
and Curb/Flywheel type service. and Limos.com or something.
What people forget is that Didi Chuxing is a lot more than rideshares and Uber-like services. They are the dispatching system for all taxis, limos, and other modes of transportation. It isn't just Uber.
So Lyft will only be a small portion of their business. They'd still have to figure out the tax portion, hence they should also buy Curb or other dispatching networks.
Am I the only one who is wondering how a deaf person is driving? I love touching stories just like any other but I'm worried for the passengers' safety
well, that'd be nice if we could get more rides like that. but why would uber do that? just so their rental customers are successful?
I don't think they are banking revenue on renting cars, right? They just want more access to a bigger pool of drivers. They have to keep either party (rentals and non-rentals) happy.
Must have been a huge taxi fan. Taking it for the team.
Martyr, if you will.
The growth should be faster for a smaller company always. What we should be looking at is the market share gains Lyft has had. That's a lot more impressive.
"Lyft made a lot of progress in 2017, helped by strong market expansion within the U.S. and riding some very bad news from its primary rival, Uber. That’s helped it grow revenue to more than $1 billion." "a particularly strong Q4 during which its revenue outpaced Uber’s by 2.75x, lifted (get it?) 168 percent year-over-year, versus 61 percent growth for Uber’s revenue relative to its own performance during the final quarter of 2017."
Why would anyone be calling Uber? Isn't the whole reason taxi sucks and uber rocks is the lack of phones? I should also be saying the same thing to the OP, huh.
My favorite part of the story:
Rather than get out of the car or turn around, he just went with it. "What am I, just going to get dropped off on the side of the road?" Bachman said.
It's all fun and games until someone dies in an Uber on the way to the hospital.
