I am starting a job that's 14 miles away that doesn't have local public transportation to/from my home in South Loudoun County, VA.I don't drive and I don't want to rely on my wife to give me rides. Carpooling possibly not available because of the Pandemic.So I am looking at different Rideshare apps. Price very high each way with Uber and Lyft. Is pooling through these companies coming back soon? Any other way to save money?
hi y'all. I had a HORRENDOUS lyft experience in phoenix az. my lyft driver barely waited for me to get out of the car, and before I fully shut the door, she took off with my suitcase. lyft has refused to help, I understand my stuff is long gone but the driver faced ZERO consequences, lyft informed me that she will not be suspended or face any charges for the crime she clearly committed. I filed a police report, not so much to get my stuff back, but to try to ensure that she wont do this to someone else …
What do you guys think? Shouldn't there be a maximum age requirement to drive for these companies? The elderly often have slower reflexes, reduced eyesight and medical conditions that could put them and their passengers at risk of having accidents while behind the wheel.
Classic Uber moment.(CNN)Uber has been ordered to pay $1.1 million after an arbitrator ruled that the rideshare company's drivers discriminated against a blind woman and her guide dog on more than a dozen separate occasions.Lisa Irving, a California resident, said she was denied rides or verbally abused by drivers 14 times in 2016 and 2018, Irving's attorney Adam Wolf told CNN."I felt demeaned, humiliated, devalued, embarrassed, angered, frustrated and violated," Irving said in a video statement.She was awarded $324,000 in damages and more than $800,000 in attorney fees and court costs, according to the arbitrator's award …
This option started showing up for me late 2020. It may have been there for longer but I never saw it before. I honestly am not sure what to make of this because I never really know how much I am willing to wait. I mean, has there been some expectation before as to how quickly a driver is supposed to show up? Some kind of an SLA? I don't remember there being any. 10 minutes? 20 minutes? Is there some kind of threshold as to when something becomes a wait & save? It feels pretty obscure to me and …
I figured this would be the case. With the introduction of upfront pricing, Uber can charge customers anything they want. They will ask for any amount riders are willing to pay. I have heard cases where during the hours when the business users are out, the overall fare goes up. Trips to and from airports? You guessed it. It'll go up because people are willing to pay.
All the cheap Uber fares that we have gotten accustomed to are about to go out the window. Regulators and law makers who shoved the taxis out. Are you happy now? What about …
Major driver shortage right now, Uber and Lyft have even offered bonuses to get drivers to return to the platform. Good time to be a driver... https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/7/22371850/uber-lyft-driver-shortage-covid-bonus-stimulus
Adding to the list of things Uber does to nickel-and-dime the drivers, I heard there's a trend that they pay less if you turn the destination filter on. True or false? I am paranoid.(For those who don't know, it's the feature for the driver to enter the preference on which way they'd like to go. e.g. wanting to go in the direction of home).
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?
Over the last few weeks, I've noticed that it has become much harder to find rides on Lyft or Uber in the Durham area to the point where there are sometimes no rides available. Some of my friends noticed this too. Anyone know if there's a reason for this (or if this isn't simply biased sampling by my friends and me)? What are some good similarly priced alternatives to Uber and Lyft for trips to and from the airport?
