My Uber driver who drives for like four companies told me he can deny service and cancel any requests whenever and for whatever reason Is this true?I feel like there has to be a guideline and some mandate from Uber.
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 …
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.

"Uber and Lyft are threatening to halt their ridesharing service in California after a judge rejected the companies’ effort to delay an order that forces the companies to classify drivers as employees. The popular ridesharing companies were given 10 days to reclassify their drivers in California as employees which according to Uber and Lyft is near impossible. The deadline to reclassify is now only 3 days away, August 20th, and Uber and Lyft have said that if they are forced to stick with this deadline that they will need to “go dark” in California for some time."https://ride.guru/content/newsroom/will-uber-and-lyft-really-pull-out-of-california-this-week
How is this legal? Oh, it isn't? What's new.
What is the current situation with Uber in London? Taxi app won’t be stopped any time soon
It is now over two months since Uber’s license to operate in London came to an end, and yet the taxi company is still running as normal in the UK’s capital. Uber was stripped of its operating license on September 30, but they were certainly not going to give up without a fight and have continued to operate ever since.
CEO of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, claimed he would make things right after Transport for …
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?
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 …
He weighed an easy four hundred pounds. More weekday afternoons than not, he'd pull a chair up to one of the video slot machines, order a Diet Coke, and while away hours seeking that big score.
There was a lock box under the bar with a couple hundred dollars and a scrap of paper to record payouts. We were instructed to only pay the people we knew, all others would be told that the machines were “For Amusement Only”.
Periodically there would be word that a bar down the street had been raided and shut down, so there was always …
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) …
"Hackers stole the personal data of 57 million customers and drivers from Uber Technologies Inc., a massive breach that the company concealed for more than a year. This week, the ride-hailing firm ousted its chief security officer and one of his deputies for their roles in keeping the hack under wraps, which included a $100,000 payment to the attackers."
"Compromised data from the October 2016 attack included names, email addresses and phone numbers of 50 million Uber riders around the world, the company told Bloomberg on Tuesday. The personal information of about 7 million drivers was accessed as …
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 …
