I have been recently deactivated by Uber permanently. Uber refuses to give me an exact explanation. Uber advises that it was for a zero tolerance violation. I was deactivated over a year ago. Uber completed their investigation and it was determined the rider lied. Could have made a second mistake? My customer service rating is 4.88. Do I have any legal recourse since Uber refuse an exact explanation? Please Advise
"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 ...
Just wondering, if you're a driver that's willing to take the chance during these difficult times and continuing to driver, I'm wondering a few things:1. Are you taking any precautions?2. Are you wearing a mask?3. Are you finding demand to be heavy due to lack of available cars?4. Are you finding long distance pick ups more frequently?5. Are you finding passengers are tipping any better or more frequently?6. Are you typically a day light or night time driver?

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.
Sometimes your driver may miss the route and reach late to rider's place. This will definitely create a dispute among them, which may gradually lead you to lose a valuable customer. To avoid these occurrences and to provide a comfortable service, you can try integrating an automatic route calculation feature in your taxi app.With this feature, the driver will be automatically shown the fastest route to reach destinations earlier. Also, adding another feature like fare estimation is useful. This avoids disagreements that occur when the driver demands high pay after the ride. Letting your rider know the estimated amount ...
I did a paper on "Uber for X" and the Gig Economy. This is a year or two old, but I thought I'd share the full list I had included. I am sure many are missing by now. At the end of the day, it's basically any company that markets itself saying, "It's like an Uber for ABC..." and the business model is remotely simillar to Uber's.As I did my paper however, I have realized that if't any company with an app that are selling themselves as an "Uber for..." to signify qualities such as , "on-demand", "fast", "app ...
We’ve all seen the articles about the elite few who cash in big as Uber driver-partners.
One man makes $252,000 a year, largely by selling jewelry to his passengers as he drives. Other drivers find driving with the company pays better than many entry-level jobs (although there’s no guarantee on your income, because you’re an independent contractor).
But what’s it really like to drive with Uber, and how can you make the most money possible?
Journalist Emily Guendelsberger delved deep into the life of a ride-share driver as she became an undercover driver with Uber in Philadelphia in ...
I have owned Hewlett Packard printers for most of my adult life. Sure I have tried others, but seem to find my way back to HP. Their drivers and hardware just work. Sometimes you get lemons; but, the modern day HP with Windows 10 is fairly stable and reliable. The only gripe I have (well maybe I should say the first part of a three point gripe) is how expensive the ink cartridges are. Sure the printers are dirt cheap and they make their money on the ink. I get that part. What I don't like is the hardcore sales ...
Why does this happen? I was taking an Uber from Miami airport, and UberBlack responded. He was parked outside of the airport premises, and didn't move at all for a few minutes. Then he started to move...then he stopped. Then called me to tell me that he had car trouble and that I should cancel.
I told him that he should cancel, and he insisted that it's easy and that I should. and that if there are any issues, I can call Uber. I refused, took my friend's Uber, and proceeded to drive off. He never showed up, and I ...

My uber driver in nyc was pulled over and it turned out he didn't have a valid drivers license. I ended up being late for a meeting at my office. Should i expect or ask uber for some type of compensation for putting me in that situation?
Was out last night driving overnight like I do most nights. I know how bad the deer are so I am very careful. Had just dropped a family of 6 off. Had a F150 with his highbeams on coming up opposite lane, headed up a hill I couldnt see over, was well under speed limit, had brakes on lightly when I started down hill. The deer was so small he didnt even come up to the bumper of my SUV. I didnt see him until it was too late. I didnt have much room to swerve but cut to the ...
