Riders, I would be interested in hearing about all the best of the best rides you have experienced. What made them special or so good? Tell us one thing we can do as drivers that will tickle your fancy.
In 2012 I walked away from the taxi business never to return. Looking back on it now I feel fortunate to have gotten out just in time. Earlier that year Über entered the Chicago market. They recruited me right away because I had a book out about the taxi business. Back then they were all about making their service seem like a hip new thing. There was practically no work but among the people I drove using their app was comedian Reggie Watts. The company worked hard to recruit taste-makers to their cause. I didn't care much for using the …
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.
LOL:The ride home was long, partly because of the distance, and partly because of the conversation. We (he) talked about masks, and about how, at the time, Uber wasn’t asking drivers to wear them. Then we (he) talked about how maybe the virus was overblown in the news. Then we (he) talked about how his entire family (wife and five kids) had been sick for the months of February and March. Then he said the thing that is still ringing in my ears.“I’m pretty sure I’m an a-systematic carrier.”I didn’t know what bothered me most: that I …
In a local flier coupon a particular local taxi stated they are covid compliant and couldn't stop laughing . Most taxi s whether yellow or app based drivers DO NOT clean the back properly or none at all . This particular company hasn't cleaned their cars since it left the assembly line and drivers from other companies are not making the money they should so therefore why would anyone think that the back of the car will be clean when you get in ???
Drivers are well aware of the in and outs of the ride share experience as they live it on a day to day basis. However passengers, both novice and experienced, have an ongoing curiosity as to many aspects of the ride share game. What area of interest, do you as a passenger wish to have answered? Your upvote is appreciated.
I love when justice happens unexpectedly. I am going to always check the phones left in my car from now on, maybe collectively we can catch more of these f**kin disgusting lowlifes.https://www.sbsun.com/2020/10/06/arrest-made-after-child-porn-found-on-phone-left-behind-in-uber-in-fontana/
It is so happening Who would have seen this coming 😂Ford politely said “could you please put on your mask?”He huffed and responded “why, you think I have corona?”At that point I explained to him that we don’t know who has coronavirus, and that it’s about taking precautions, and that Uber requires drivers and passengers to wear masks.While he then put on the mask:He spent 30 seconds ranting about masks and how they’re uncomfortable to wear, and how he can’t believe we think that he has coronavirusHe started driving much more aggressively, accelerating fast, …
I appreciate Uber putting in some measures in place, but can we face the hard truths?You have a high exposure of Covid-19 when you get into an Uber, because:Covid vapors and droplets are floating in the air from previous passengersCovid vapors and droplets are floating in the air from drivers who only put their masks on upon pickupDoor knobs, car seats, windows, etc. are likely to have been touched by previous passengers with no clean up in betweenWe have to admit that most drivers do not:Put their masks on until the next riders are …
ZipCar, Uber, and other rideshare companies want to make it illegal to own your own self-driving car in the city.
The last two drivers had no mask on. No barrier either. My app says riders and drivers are all required to be wearing mask. Is this just some stupid guideline that no one listens to or a real enforceable policy?
1. Always rate 1 star
2. Always comment the car smelled, driver was reckless, speeded, ran a red light

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) …
