They definitely use to have a little test for new drivers like back in 2014 - I remember my drivers talking about it. I wonder when they got rid of it.
Didn't Lyft used to make drivers do a driving test? Do they still do that? I think this is really important and should be done in every city.
So driving 16 hours just to work a shift? Your earnings must be so minimal. Plus your way of life must be miserable. If I was in this boat I would definitely be searching for a new job.
Huh, very interesting, so it is like they are spreading the surge wealth amongst all drivers. If I was a veteran driver who could predict surges well I would be pretty upset too.
I don't understand this. Uber is now paying surge rates out to drivers EVEN when riders are not paying surge?! 1. How can they afford this? 2. Why would drivers be mad?
What am I missing?
oh yes, this happens to me all the time!!
This always makes me wonder if my identity is being used out there...
I had no idea this was a thing. This is terrifying. For $150 some criminal could get access to driving me all alone in a car. No thanks.
Once I was in an Uber and my driver gets a phone call, he puts it on speaker and starts chatting with his buddy about how hes driving a nice passenger currently (I exchange nice pleasantries with his friend on the phone), then they continue on about a BBQ that weekend and quick updates on their kids and hang up. When they hang up my driver turns to me and says Ill give you 3 gueses as to who you were just speaking with. Turns out it was Mike Eruzione!! I was in Winthrop, MA where he is from so it makes sense but I wish I had known while he was actually on the phone. Closest I have ever come to a celebrity :)
Probably a distracted driver who needed to stare at his GPS 24/7
haha, I hate how hard Uber/Lyft are to work with, it is ridiculous that you have video evidence proving you are right and they wouldn't give you the details needed to be able to prove your innocence. Glad they reactivated your account quickly though.
LMAO, then proceeded to weep...
Was this passenger being funny or did you really weep?
Would the dispatchers favor certain drivers and give them better rides?
Huh, I never knew this is how it worked "a screen listed available fares and it was just a matter of hitting the right buttons quicker than the other drivers to get the address of your next fare". So would the screen just list like 20 fares and you would try to click the one that was the most appealing (closest to you and most money?).
I read that this deal IS NOT about the money for DiDi, I mean they already have billions of dollars thanks to multiple investors/funding rounds. But they are looking at this move from a stretegic standpoint and I think it is quite smart.
No one is original anymore. One company creates something and everyone else follows suit.
In some cultures it is rude to sit in the back and not the front.
I think they are great in theory but they never seem easier than piblic transit to me so I just don't use them.
This is a huge win for Uber, they have been fighting for London for quite some time now.
