So true->'can't please everybody no matter how you try.'
This is the problem about not being able to rate drivers without you being the passenger. Good job for catching the license plate.
Yes, to the range anxiety. Wait, this says 335 miles. That's about the same as both my gas-powered cars.
I get the smoking twice a week. I get it that you have the urge fter a bar, but you really cannot wait 10 minutes?
Then there are those who take a big puff as they get on the car. Arg.
I second this. This says taxi drivers. For them, it was definitely a norm where the tipping was expected. 90% basically means "everyone", except that there are always bad apples.
BTW, I don't believe bartenders get tipped 98% of the time. That just doesn't make sense.
No problem. :)
Just curious, why are you looking for this info? Are you a driver? Research?
Oooh, I did some math earlier this year. My car qualifies for UberSelect in my city. It's basically the equivalent of UberBlack, except my car isn't and doesn't have to be black.
As many suspect, Pool rides are still not that often, but considering it used to be 0% last year, it's definitely on the rise. I am actually surprised my UberSelect is so low as I had high hopes for making increased revenue than others, but I figured it allows me to keep busy and score higher ratings due to a nicer car.
UberX - 75% of all rides
UberPool - 10% of all rides
UberSelect - 15% of all rides
I did some additional analysis, but they were similar across the board. For example, on average, my rides were 7 miles long and took 11 minutes.
Under the section on "Consent", it says
"In some states, “consent” is given if the parties to the call are clearly notified that the conversation will be recorded, and they engage in the conversation anyway. Their consent is implied."
Ah, so we are cool, right

I feel like that defeats the purpose. They are still *using* the smartphone through delegation. This is like a loophole.
I guess it's the same as having a secretary...but still! You are still using a smartphone!
I don't know, guys. I don't really see the riders caring until Uber starts penalizing the customers for it.
but I have a feeling Uber won't do anything to paying customers.
I hope the passengers see that this is BS. They are paying the inflated prices and the money isn't even coming to the drivers.
At this point, driver and passenger should just cancel Uber trip and then come up with our own arrangement without surge.
It's time to stand up together!
Why can't we all just get along. Empathize with each other, and help each other out. We are all in this together. Such a bummer that the dude gave you one-star for that.
The police officer probably just thought 3 was "normal". People in those professions (like military) don't sugarcoat things, and I bet he probably thought he was giving "average."
Very nice. This needs to be placed in every doctor's office. I mean in every Uber cabin
I disagree on one thing though. Passenger's take on 1-star? I think that's more for
- "My driver was drunk" or
- "Dropped me off in middle of a highway.
or, my favorite
- "I just didn't like the guy."
Yes, we get along fine, thank you. LOL.
To be honest, I don't even know a single other driver.
Yeah, I have heard that non-emergency medical drivers is a hot thing right now. Don't you need special licensing, experience, and training as you will be treating elderlies and patients? I looked into it a few years ago, but I gave up because it seemed a bit complex.
I shudder to think about it. Most other respondents are saying just give them what they want, but I am a female and what they want could be much worse than money or my car. :(
I guess one thing I can do is to slam on the brakes and see if I can hurt the attacker (who I assume would not be strapped in). It's sad I resort to that though.
i do carry a mace and exercise caution. I could potentially try to open a cell phone line with someone (I have on standby while I am on the job), but I know it's difficult to prepare for this.
So I figured this out. well, one pax told me. It's in the psychology of people who have their guards up. People who are afraid to get taken for a ride.
They do that to prove you know the roads, so they want to sound all smart.
Agreed, man. Look at this loose blanket rule from Lyft:
"Kate Margolis, a Lyft spokeswoman, sent Ars a similar statement: "All drivers on the Lyft platform are required to follow applicable local laws and regulations, including with regard to the use of any recording device. You can find our policy here on Lyft's safety page.""
I found this post, and i am a new driver, and I've been trying the 8 to 4 thing. I made literally $90 in four days of "working." It's been demoralizing.
Uber is so misleading. It's incredible. I do understant that there are drivers out there making a lot of money, but they probably work crazy hours or work the odd hours. Uber offers money AND flexibility, but it sounds like you can only have one.
