Too much tipping. This is not a problem I've been exposed to. lol
I think that is okay. There’s an issue on Uber how they make the rules
I can’t believe they think the price can go any lower. It was way low to begin with.
I wonder how the conversation in the boardroom went. Someone at some point at Lyft HQ they had this conversation.
“Do you guys think the drivers are getting paid too much?” “How many would quit if we lowered it further?” “Well, heck, we won’t know until we try. Let’s see how lower can go until they start to quit. And then we will raise it just enough, and that’s how we find the floor.”
Tesla Model 3 should be an UberSelect in any market. If the option doesn't automatically appear in your app, you should contact Uber.
You totally could. Full size four-door car. It qualifies for regular UberX and UberPool.
It doesn't have to be specifically on the list. Go ahead and submit your application, and it will be accepted.
Are you a rider asking this question to the passengers? or Are you a passenger asking other passengers?
I am a driver, and yeah, people do leave negative ratings for the smell. I keep my car super fresh and clean, but I have gotten complaints about smells from previous passengers and sometimes my air freshener being too strong. (I don't use one anymore. Just Febreeze-equivalent.)
We actually do get summarized comments from our riders. It looks like a Yelp review with star-ratings and all.
you don't necessary have to drive all the way home. Drive to Oakland or South SF where you can find larger parking at big retailers like Target. You have flexibility as a rideshare driver; drive all night and sleep during safe times during the day, say Friday and Saturday late AMs. Those are dead times anyway.
As for sleeping, try this.
My Honda's backseat folds forward creating a flat opening into the trunk. So I stick my legs through and I can fully lie down. Sort of like this. A bit cold in the trunk but it works.
It isn't bad. You keep both apps running. Then while you are waiting, you just wait for the ping from either app.
The only tricky part is, when you accept a ride, you just have to make sure to turn one off so you won't get another ping mid trip. Then again, you can always just cancel those. As Uber nor Lyft really penalizes drivers for cancellations (at least anymore), it isn't that big of a deal if you forget to turn one off.
Why would you ever listen to them? Just tell them that UberPool rides are set in stone and that you cannot do anything about it.
Not to mention how many passengers abuse the UberPool by using it to get further discounts. Say on short trips when they know the chance is low to be paired with someone.
My friend, imagine having a name like Syed. I bet you a decent percentage of cancellations are due to my name and people being racist.
Just make it more equal. Just hide the information from the passenger app. Simple way to have equality.
Do riders need it? Do they need to know that the driver is from Egypt and the name is Syed?
Just make all the drivers employees. You will solve the diversity problem overnight.
Giving us Syeds such a bad name. we already sound like terrorists and now money laundry and defrauding governments. oh, man.
This is what Uber is supposed to be for. A quick and easy ride, with no need for appointments, for people who need the ride. I think it's wonderful, and I'd be happy to do it.
At the end of the day, this is the reason Uber has been massively successful.
All the drivers (including mysef) talk about money and money, and sure that's important, but there's a part of every one of us that wants to genuinely help people. I mean, there are many ways to make money.
Yes, I can. but it ain't a spa.
wait, until you have your own private jet for that, please.
Uber is like Trump. There are so many scandals and wrongdoings, that even a bombshell like this will get buried in the recent pricing change scheme.
Oooooh yeah. Gosh, I hate the type. They think they own you because they are paying you $10. I know I am being hired but it's the service you bought. Not me or the car. You don't own us.
Why? Because riders have no idea what us drivers do! :)
Right. The easiest way to remember is that you still get paid for the duration and distance you drive. It has nothing to do with how many riders you are driving around.
