I heard they are trying to crack down on it.
I did see this thread as an example of how they are starting to deactivate drivers and stopped paying cleaning fees. How are they catching these drivers and settling the disputes?
Banned from charging Uber cleaning fee?
What is the "cleaning fees" and "vomit" SCAM by Uber drivers? Should I be concerned? How do I avoid them?
Seems like pretty basic stuff we all already know - Lyft allowed tipping before Uber, Lyft is generally the "nicer company", etc. Apparently this was all done as research for a book "Uberland". Has anyone read it?
I'm just curious what drivers think about this, and if making out in the backseat of an Uber would make my passenger rating go down. Nothing crazy happening but I'm just curious what people's opinions are on this.
What they don’t tell you…
Well for one thing, that I would have a constant crick in my neck from trying to get comfortable sleeping in my car. Dang that automotive engineer that designed those seat belts so they won’t lay down flat and poke you in the lower ribs and stomach. Tip take a thick fluffy towel. Roll it up and drape it around your neck for a comfortable car pillow.
They didn’t tell me I would depreciate my car 150,000 miles worth. But I got 54.5 cents per mile Safe Harbor Rate from the IRS as a tax ...
A recent study performed by Netquote Insurance Company swabed 9 cars. 3 Rideshare 3 Rent A Car, and 3Taxi's. Found that rideshare cars have more germs than a toilet seat. What are your thoughts?https://6abc-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/6abc.com/amp/health/rideshare-cars-have-more-germs-than-toilet-seat-study-says/5296817/?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQDoAEA#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2F6abc.com%2Fhealth%2Frideshare-cars-have-more-germs-than-toilet-seat-study-says%2F5296817%2F
This seems like a pretty significant news on how the travel websites are starting to invest in rideshare companies... and it isn't with the American Uber.
Priceline will work closely with Didi to offer its on-demand car services through its Booking.com apps, and Didi customers will have the option to book hotels through Booking.com and its sister site Agoda. Booking also operates Kayak, Priceline.com, Rentacars.com and OpenTable, which makes it a powerful ally for Didi, which is in global expansion mode.
Alright, I will admit. She had way too much to drink, and she was foaming at the mouth. Then she began to throw up on her shirt and skirt. Yes, I feel horrible, but I think we managed to not get any puke on the upholstery.
In any case, the driver pulls over (which is fine) and starts to snap pics, from different angles, with and wihout flash. It was totally uncalled for. In fact, I feel it criminal as he took pictures of my girl who was not feeling well. Upon asking, he told me he needed records.
Drove Saturday night in Philly & Lower Bucks. Rain was relentless, flooding everywhere, visibility awful. After seeing my 8th accident on I-95 this one involving 4 cars that firemen were extracting the injured or possibly dead with the jaws of life & power tools I decided I was done for the night. I took one last quick bar pick up that was 7 min ride. I stopped at local WaWa where I know the night shift employees. Mike was on phone & yelled for me when I got in. "Can you take this guy home he dont have phone & ...
Riding my bike around Chicago these days I'm always wary of cars pulled over, idling by the curb, or, more often, blocking the bike lane. A few years ago most of these obstacles in my path were clearly identifiable by their markings—they were taxis. Now it's much more difficult to tell public vehicles from private. But from my many years as a cabdriver I can still catch the telltale signs.
Though the only outward thing to give them away is an airplane decal on the back window, a dumb pink mustache or that ominous U on the dash, the drivers' ...
That is the ONLY thing that makes sense. A new car would be ruined by the mileage you run up on it. Plus a new car is probably financed and would require the most expensive full coverage insurance. Ideally (if you live in the United States) find a three year old car that has come off a lease. A 3 year old car hits it’s sweet spot as to devaluation after a three year lease. If you can find one with high miles that can be bought at a steep discount even better. A three yr. old car will have ...
