Well, last night I picked this guy up, he smelled weed the worst possible way. It's legal in CA now. After a half hour ride, I got stacked by another pax request, accepted it, on my way to her I opened all four windows. Picked her up, she immediately complained of the smell, I explained it to her but she didn't buy it, became hostile, I pulled the car over at a well lit spot and politely asked her to GTFO and 1*. I ended the ride turned the app off, pulled over to write a complaint. Before I could ...
This really should be mandatory training for all drivers. This stuff is way more prevalent than we all know.https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/king-county-giving-uber-lyft-taxi-drivers-sex-trafficking-awareness-training/985237495
Some passengers just don’t get it. What are some things that annoy you? Add to the list and let me know what you think of it!1) MAKE IT EASY/SAFE FOR US TO PICK YOU UP!This is the biggest one. Some passengers have some ridiculous pick up points. No, I will not stop on a 4 lane one-way road with no shoulder during rush hour to pick you up. This is unsafe. I am not going to block traffic for you. You’re gonna have to walk to my car a block away for this one or I’m cancelling.2) ...
Do we need to reengage on a "is rideshare safe" discussion again or is this the nature of the type of service they provide?To assess the actual risk, we need to compare it to how things used to be with the taxis. Does anyone have enough statistics to show that rideshares are indeed more dangerous than what taxis used to be? We have to be asking the right question.Fourteen women are suing Lyft over allegedly mishandling their sexual assault, sexual misconduct and rape complaints against drivers that occurred while using its service, bringing renewed attention to the issue ...
I heard from my nephew that Uber drives are sometimes so desperate to make money that they would randomly charge cleaning fees for no reason whatsoever. Is this true? What can I do to stop it or make sure it doesn't happen.
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. Many drivers will not accept your request or they will cancel on you. If you have a fake name be prepared to possibly have longer wait, ...
Of course, this is in response to how people will stop buying cars once the autonomous vehicles are on the streets. Desperate excuse? or are there some metrics to this claim? People say the car ownership may go down but there will still be a lot of "car usage" hence the sales won't go down.
After 50 Uber rides, I finally ran into an Uber driver who had a sundry shop open in his car. He sold water, gum, mints, head phones, charging cables, bags of chips, red bull, chapsticks, etc. etc.
I asked the driver and he told he can do whatever he wants because he is an independent and the products have nothing to do with Uber, the company. I don't know the legality of opening up a store in the back of a Toyota Camry, but with all legal stuff aside, what are other ways drivers make money? What are cool things ...
Please do share. Remember when some dude died after getting kicked off Lyft? I can't help it to think he did something to be kicked out, you know?

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?
I understand that the car is a private property, and drivers have the rights to record inside their cabin. However, do I have the right to not be recorded upon request?
