I am not sure if you are joking or not, but that does sound fantastic to me. Meeting people all over, make just enough to buy gas, food, and laundry. Just see the country coast to coast.
So many female drivers on this forum. I don’t think this is representative of the entire rideshare industry.
Unless, of course, more females post online generally. No idea if that’s true.
Well, women are still minorities as rideshare drivers. They are trend-setters, and perhaps some may call them hippies.
Umm, this is theft and criminal. Report it to Uber first, and if he still doesn't comply, report him to the police.
Is the panic button for drivers or passengers? No, I am being serious. I haven't seen it on my app. (I am a customer.)
Susan Fowler's post - x-Uber employee. Everyone needs to read this:
Reflecting On One Very, Very Strange Year At Uber
At one point, they only had 3~4% women.
Very much reminds me of the infamous blog post by Susan Fowler on her life at Uber.
Uber drivers are independent drivers, so they better be okay with it. Uber has no say over what they do in their own cars.
Yeah, so comforting. LOL. What other items can claim such benefits after your death?
I would like to think Uber has a mechanism in place where they wouldn't match you up with someone from that far away.
Yes, some regions cover an area large enough that it can be more than 60 miles end to end, but I doubt Uber would match you up with any driver that just happens to be available.
I am trying to think where such thing is possible. Maybe Jersey CIty or Cape Code near Boston at odd hours?
Don't stick it to the riders just because Uber cannot run a decent business. There shouldn't have to be a cultural shift and a community subsidizing some unfortunate workers only because this private company doesn't know how to make a profit.
Drivers or riders, you can't argue with this.
I know drivers and riders both give low ratings to those people who are rude. and I do consider soliciting tip as very rude. The tip isn't something you ask for. It's for a job well done. You shouldn't ask for it, and you shouldn't expect it. I can't believe this needs to be explained.
I am sure this "soliciting" works in many cases, but the whole reason it works is because of the pressure being put on the rider. I consider this horrendous, and the driver should be discouraged for doing such things. and if it takes a low ratings, so be it. (I mean, what is the rating for if it doesn't deter bad unwanted behevaiors?)
BAsicslly the same thing. Instead of custom, it says Saved Places and Friends.
Open the Lyft app. Click on Pickup Location (white bar at the bottom. You are then taken to a screen you can type an address, where you will see a bunch of shortcuts. You will see from the top, Home, Office, "Add custom shortcut", then followed by recent searches. Home and Office are presets you can set, and custom shortcuts is where you can add additional locations.
That is a pretty big bombshell that they hide in ths article. Lyft has been around longer than Uber!
"Lyft may be smaller than Uber, but it has been around longer:
I run a restaurant and it is sooooo not worth it. 30% commissions is super high. Are you kidding me? Maybe for pasta dishes that already have good margin but for steaks and seafood, paying 30% will make us lose money for sure.
Of course, restaurants are allowed to charge whateve we want, but then we'd have to jack up our prices, and I feel like that is bad for the business and worsen customer perception of the restaurant. My vote goes for NO.
Wow, you are polite indeed. I do remember the old days of ordering cabs for others, but I don't rememer payng them for it. How generous of you.
I'd totally order one but my sidewalk is way too small for this thing to land.
Agreed. I'm actually surprised other non-original ones haven't circulated like
- AutoTaxi and AutoCab
- Autonomous Taxis (ATs)
Wait what? Number of Rides per User is 50? Once every week? for EVERYONE? That seems high.
I guess it must consider only active users. I wonder how that is defined.
