As we all know it was a rough ride for drivers over the weekend. No access on driver's app to see your trips, how much you made, and the worst part was you couldnt cash out to get paid. Drivers were unable to drive as they had no access to their pay. I also had issues with navagation. This isnt the first time this has happened. A few months back there was an issue with the instant pay. I waited a week for my pay last time this happened. Then it occured again a few days later, although this time …
I rode by the old Yellow Cab garage the other day, where I picked up the cars I drove for many years, and saw a bunch of party tents in the lot and a smiley face replacing the taxi company logo. The next day I read what the old garage had been turned into: https://www.chicagoreader.com/Bleader/archives/2018/07/30/everyones-a-sucker-at-overpriced-made-for-instagram-pop-up-circuses.
I doubt very much that this "Happy Place" is the cause of much actual happiness, but know for sure that what it was before was the cause of a lot of misery. Hard to say which is worse.

Hi, I’m new to the forum. One of the reasons I was invited by the CEO is because I drive for 6 apps, 3 of which are for kids. I’m the San Francisco Bay Area and drive for HopSkipDrive, Kango and Zūm. HopSkipDrive is also available in L.A. and Denver, and Zūm in L.A. I’d like to hear from anyone who drives for any of these companies. If there are other kid rideshare drivers out there in other areas, also make yourself known.
For those you unfamiliar with kid rideshare, it’s typically for kids 5-17, though there can be younger …

Uber and Lyft get most of the attention when it comes to new tech in the transportation space, but there's also tech in the peer-to-peer rental space worth discussing. Some examples are Turo and Getaround.
Turo is a lower-tech option in the bunch, but I still think it's worthy of discussion because it allows car owners and renters to interact in ways they haven't before. The simple promise is that if you have an idle car sitting around, you can make money from renting it. Turo has a fairly simply website that allows owners to list cars, and for …
I haven't heard of any Bird Scooters here in CT, but I can't sleep while I wonder this question. I get it that I can probably not steal it as there are GPS chips on it, but what about damages while they all just sit there in public?
I'm a dispatcher, they haven't killed us but they have surely given us a wound we can't really recover from. Most of our drivers if they're not answering our calls or alerts from their systems about potential jobs we're assuming are doing Uber jobs.Uber, Lyft, and Juno are all apps that show up on their phones during monthly inspections. We also have to make sure they're not using GPS cheaters to fake being somewhere while doing an Uber job.Mostly what keeps us in business is SUV work and specialty vehicles like Mercedes Sprinter Vans and Passenger Vans, we …
Classic Uber move.
Anonymous whistleblowers alleged that Hornsey, who had been in the role of top HR executive and spokesperson for a year and a half, had systematically dismissed internal complaints of racial discrimination and made derogatory remarks about Bernard Coleman, the company’s global head of diversity and Uber brand chief Bozoma Saint John, who left Uber in June.
I'm just kinda interested to read what everyone has to offer for their passengers.
I myself have:
a USB charging unit that caters to Android, Iphone & USB-C phones (http://www.powapod.com/)
a CarGo box with some free snacks/stuff and some you have to pay for (https://getcargo.today/)
Do you feel amenities increase your tips? If so, which specifically do you feel increase your tip chances?
I recently received a go to the pin request for a pick-up. I went where Uber sent me! I sat outside a driveway where I went to waiting time. The phone rang , I picked up, and the client asked me where I was. I informed him that I was waiting on a dead end street in a cul-de-sac for him. He told me that he was at the Sunoco about 50 yards away - (through a backyard)! I told him, “I’m on my way!” When I got there ( about 3 minutes later), I told the client and his …
