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?
Sometimes it seems obvious what to do if you're in an accident, but when it happens you may be stunned, confused, and even injured. It's important to know ahead of time the best practices so you come out on top. We put together a step by step list to make it easy. Call the Police. It's one of the first questions we ask drivers when they call us after an accident: "Did you file a police report?". This is very important because if it wasn't your fault, now you have written proof. Be Polite but don't admit fault. If it …

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.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, our happy(?) times with Uber are coming to an end.
I'd like to find all those helpful Drivers who worked on the New App and ask them some pointed questions....
This weekend, I think I've seen the future.
1. All the bonus areas that were always present on a weekend, changing every hour to get cars to different areas, are gone. GONE. They would range from a 1.1 (10%) to a 2.0 (double) as the bars emptied and every Uber on the road was needed. GONE. They have been replaced by the Consecutive Ride Program where, …
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.

“There’s something you need to know,” she said in a low voice, “and I don’t want you to forget it. When you’re writing code, you need to think of the drivers. Never forget that these are real people who have no benefits, who have to live in this city, who depend on us to write responsible code. Remember that.” I didn’t understand what she meant until several weeks later, when I overheard two other engineers in the cafeteria discussing driver bonuses—specifically, ways to manipulate bonuses so that drivers could be “tricked” into working longer hours. Laughing, they compared the …
A lot seems to be happening in LA recently with regards to rideshares. This is an interesting new development. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/los-angeles-to-study-30-minimum-wage-for-uber-lyft-drivers
Are you guys seeing this?!! NYC taking a stance against Uber for once?! Limiting the number of rideshares! What happened to all the lobbyists that Uber pays off?! Does billions of dollars in cash mean nothing to these law makers?! LOL.
The last time New York City tried to impose a cap on Uber’s vehicles, the rout was brutal. Uber introduced a “de Blasio view” in its ride-hailing app, blaming long wait times on Mayor Bill de Blasio. Celebrities like Ashton Kutcher and Kate Upton voiced their support for Uber on Twitter.
The mayor was forced to back away from …
