Yes, you can. You can drive for either one. You use the same driver app, but you can choose which service you want to handle.
It's as granular as UberX vs UberSUV.
All of them speak in such extremes and they fail to see anything gray or anything that doesn’t agree with them.
The world is a complicated place with a lot of gray. They don’t understand that.
People are starving for various reasons and they just say, “why don’t they work?”
I once refused service to two naked dudes in roller blades.
Where? Manhattan Beach, of course.
There aren't that many laws that can prevent drivers from denying service, I don't think. Maybe race, religion and gender?
Lyft has a community guideline, so technically, anyone who breaks this you should be able to refuse a ride. At the least Lyft will back you up if you are following the rules mentioned here.
Not become one.
Yes, that’s exactly what it is.
And yes, the drama is enjoyable. Like reality tv but more real
That's for Lyft, right? I don't think there is a separate section for Uber.
Dudes apparently cannot be discriminated against apparently.
Not just gender but everything else. None in power can be discriminated against. The funny thing is? I think it sort of has to be that way while we all fix this long running history of discrimination. Think affirmative action for school acceptance and white people being called "crackers."
I don't do Pool rides. I can't be competing with $1.75 city buses and subways. No thanks.
Yeah, this usually comes in the indirect form. It's usually built into the questions they ask and how they treat service providers.
You know that saying, "if you want to know the truth about your date, watch how he [or she] treats the waitor"? It's because some people are curt and rude to people who provide for us. I don't know why this happens. The truth bleeds out.
I have seen that in my colleagues and even those who I considered as friends.
No, I haven't heard of that but I know in San Francisco there's been a crap storm over this for many months. They may already be employees by now.
There are pros and cons on being an employee though. Benefit packages, insurance, and stuff will be nice. However, we will likely lose a lot of freedom in deciding when and where we work, ability to cancel and pick which driver you want, tax breaks you get from being self-employed, etc. etc.
I keep both my iPhone and iPad on. The calls and texts go to the iPhone number on profile. iPad does it’s own thing, basically for directions.
Lots of GPS related posts in the last few days.
You may want to update your phone. My old iPad that’s affixed to my dash has a little delay in my location and telling me the turns a tad too late.
It turns out that my iPad was too old and too slow for the recent heavy GPS apps. I tried the same apps on my newer iPhone, side by side with my iPad, and realized the problem.
So considering updating the hardware. I know it’s not an expense you want, but...
Also, Uber recently updated their GPS and how it works. Maybe that exacerbated the problem
apparently, we cannot. Try doing a search for vomit on this site. you get like a million articles.
Time off the clock is pain, but it's about the timing, right? What if it's at the end of the shift? What about a super slow day? What if you have a discount card at a car cleaner (as I do).
I can see it working out in your favor. Yeah, it's digusting, but you just gotta get over that and look at financially. you know, like a business man.
A troll. come on now.
Then again, I have made several hundred dollars driving drunks. I have leather seats and real good floor mats (really helpful, folks), so the clean up is relatively painless. Automatic $125 ain't necessarily a bad thing towards the end of the night.
I think this move by Uber is a desperation move because I hear Pool has been a dud. Riders don't care to save a buck to share the ride and extend their trips by 50%. Uber still wants it to work because it gives them the most profit and it's a way to support users with limited drivers.
You have UberX, but you don't have UberPool? Wow. You know we can't turn Pool off anymore, right?
I am NOT HAPPY to be forced to pickup POOLs, just to keep what I am already entitled to, surge bonuses.
How can they do this? Total BS.
This is actually something that was being organized by a fair number of drivers, part in protest for Uber's introduction of surge pricing. This was done in the early days where Uber's surge logic was still elementary and was easy to be fooled. It was far from dynamic and was based on handful of factors. I never took part in it, but this had a fair level of success, enough that Uber implemented a "fix" and made an announcement about it. Also, remember that this was in the days where there were no airport queues and much fewer drivers.
I agree with you though, and it isn't something I am not quite sure how it worked. For example, how did the drivers really communicate each other? and wouldn't some drivers always just go rogue and pick up all the rides they want while everyone else's phone was turned off?
