Even calling into a customer service call (at a bank or whatever), we have the choice of asking not to be recorded. What about with rideshares like Uber and Lyft?

Drivers are seeing more fake names coming up on rider accounts. A few names have been [email protected] Swallower, Satan, Killer, the boss, the man Little M, F, M, TotheWindow, Captain America and many more. Drivers are not accepting your request or are cancelling your trip. Drivers are not safe as it is out there. You can sign up with an Uber gift card, a Visa gift card, and then put any name you want.

What is the best & most cost effective way to get from the Buffalo airport to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls? From what I've seen, there isn't a guarantee that an uber driver will go through customs & take us into Canada. I have also seen the option of taking an uber to the rainbow bridge & walking across into Canada, then having a Canadian uber take us to our Airbnb. The cost is around $40 to get from the airport to the Border and then another $12 or so to get to where we're staying ...

(Also what's happening in CA).The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission voted Wednesday to extend its cap on the number of Uber and Lyft vehicles permitted to operate within the city. The commission also amended its rules aimed at limiting the amount of time drivers can cruise without passengers in Manhattan below 96th Street.Last year, the New York City Council voted to halt the issuance of new for-hire vehicle licenses for 12 months. Under the cap, Uber and Lyft could still ...
