You should put that IRS deduction in the title of the topic.
Isn't this always about the "expectation of privacy." The question is whether there is one inside an Uber or not. Can you talk to that more?
You take an Xbox on business trips?
Thank you for this. I have been dinged by Lyft (well, the drivers) on slamming doors too hard, but I hoenstly never meant to. It just sometimes happen depending on how soft the doors are to shut.
Unlike you, there seem to be plenty of drivers who love to ding the users on slamming the door. One driver told me that that's one of the most popular complains from drivers...
Reminds me of the time I went to the island of St. Kitts, and as suggested by the hotel and guidebook, I hired a cabbie to take us around island. It was great, and the cabbie just gave us an entire tour.
This is great to know. Thank you.
Yeah, i am glad to see that this is a pretty standard practice among the drivers. Most of mine do.
BTW your comment shed some light on why some drivers would rush over to grab the suitcase out of my hands. LOL.
Uber has a very selective mouth for sharing info.
I didn't even notice that it said sandwich *board*. I thought he was talking about a sanwdich. literal.
1.3M people take the T out of 4.6M people who live there? That's nuts. Oh, I guess each person can take the T multiple times. still.
I like this author thorough and questions it.
"But carbon offsets don’t erase externalities like vehicular congestion or particulate pollution, and various studies have revealed that ride-hailing is actually increasing vehicle-miles traveled in cities. So Lyft's cars—your ride—will still be sitting in traffic, producing all sorts of localized negative impacts like longer commute times and worsened air quality."
“Instead of $100 million or whatever Lyft is spending, I’d rather see them take that money to provide incentives for their drivers to purchase or access EVs, and just drive those,” says Weiland. In fact, RMI’s own research shows how TNC drivers that switch to electric vehicles will save gas and maintenance costs up front, and even more money due to the car’s efficiency over time
What the heck are e-bikes. Electronic bicycles dont' seem that helpful to me. not even amusing
I have had drivers wear everything from t-shirts and shorts, pajamas, and even a moomoo costume. (and it wasn't even Halloween) I love this about the industry, and I frankly don't care how they are dressed as long as they can drive and can get me to the destination safely.
Ooohhhhh, so people ARE sensitive about this. Me too!
So I use Google Maps on my phone while the trip is taking place. I do it just to make sure we are headed in the right direction and also to get an idea of when we'll get there. I will admit, I do hide it from the driver as I don't want to offend him!
the guru is really getting beaten up on this one.
or she was just crazy. high on drugs. or both.
Thank you! Driver apps are such mystery to us non-drivers. This is neat. i've always wondered this.
Yep, this is one of those things guys don't think about. (well, except for creepsters) I never enter my home location whethere it's a shared ride or not. I just get dropped off at the corner of my street and walk.
Of course you can! I do it all the time to go to Shaw's Supermarket on an Uber. I live in a city, and I take Uber every time on a rainy day.
The driver will not wait for you unless you ask. I always end the trip at the store and then request another on the way home. Sometimes, the nice drivers will wait for you in the parking lot so when you get out, you are matched up with them. That's a win-win!
Always keep in mind there may be Surge with uber. it seems like it's always higher than usual now.
