This story sounds like something out of a creepy, scary movie. I get that drivers want to record passengers for liability purposes sometimes. But sharing personal information to the world is a whole other level of weird.
When you hit " change destination" as a passenger, it will alert you that it might change the cost of your trip, and will notify the driver right away. When i'm in the car and I do this, I will see the driver's phone light up that says "updated destination" and usually they just keep driving without saying a word
I wonder if they really advertise these services to drivers. I'm sure a lot of people would use it if they knew about it. And it's probably not as easy as Uber makes it seem.
The reputation of the CEO is always measured by the reputation of the company. What I mean is that even if the CEO is this amazing person with seemingly almost no flaws, but the company sucks, the CEO will get a bad reputation by default. Most of the time this isn't the case, because when you have a strong leader at the face of your company, those values trickle down to the very bottom level.
Uber has a sexual harassment problem, but with drivers and the people it employs in its corporate setting. It is all a trickle down. A major rehaul needs to happen for any of these policies to change.
Here's an article about it BTW: https://www.engadget.com/2018/04/23/uber-drivers-will-no-longer-see-exact-location-history-for-rider/
I haven't, but I've almost accidentally gotten in the wrong car! The driver told me I was wrong though, and didn't try to scam me.
did you try any other services? did lyft have a surge?
in general, driving for uber and lyft is pretty safe. the stories you hear about are pretty rare, but reporters don't post about rideshare drivers with no drama
definitely going in the middle of the night doesn't have a surge. unless it's new years eve.
there isn't a standard you should pay, like how at restaurants they say 18-20% is the norm. it depends. if you had to put a number on it maybe around 10%, which i think is the standard for tipping in taxis
Which country are you traveling? It depends on where you go
Should I be concerned that it's that easy to do this? As a passenger I don't know how comfortable I feel. I like to know everything is triple checked about my driver, the car, etc. Just my personal opinion!
it's like back to the future, i think it's cool! it might make transportation cheaper too
it depends if the driver will have conversation with you, i've had some talkative drivers and others who just want to get me where i need to go and that's it
This happened to me before too. They added a charge whenever you leave an item no matter how much effort you put in to get it.
