Top three? I can’t think of a top one. When you drive for Uber you are basically liquidating the value of your vehicle and turning it into cash. Now. Today. The depreciation by the high mileage is the unforgiving price you pay. It punches you between the eyes when you go to KBB or similar and put in the additional 50,000 miles you drove this year and you see the value of your car drop $3,500. For that reason, I never sell a car… I drive it til the wheels fall off. Just keep the interior sharp ...
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 ...
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 ...

Are they getting desperate? It's a total deflection tactic. Trying to shift the blame away from their technology but the answer is even more pathetic. "We forgot we turned it off." I mean, someone has to explain the "why".
Let the blame game begin! Aptiv vs. Uber.
"Uber Technologies, Inc. disabled the standard collision-avoidance technology in the Volvo SUV that struck and killed a woman in Arizona last week, according to the auto-parts maker that supplied the vehicle’s radar and camera.
“We don’t want people to be confused or think it was a failure of the technology ...
I just got a notice that I was banned from charging the cleaning fee! I have charged about 20 cleaning fees, maybe 1 every other week, as I drive in a big college town and see a lot of puke and spills. I always provide pictures and they always get approved but now all the sudden they are saying I can no longer charge the fee? Did I hit some sort of cleaning fee threshold. Just ridiculous as all my cleaning fees have been legit and obviously Uber thought so too as they were all approved. I can't help ...
Today I had a pax who got in my car and said if I got him to his destination in under 10 minutes (estimated time was 13 minutes), he would give me a $10 tip. Did I speed, you bet, and now I am $10 richer
This seems like a pretty significant news on how the travel websites are starting to invest in rideshare companies... and it isn't with the American Uber.
Priceline will work closely with Didi to offer its on-demand car services through its Booking.com apps, and Didi customers will have the option to book hotels through Booking.com and its sister site Agoda. Booking also operates Kayak, Priceline.com, Rentacars.com and OpenTable, which makes it a powerful ally for Didi, which is in global expansion mode.
"The ride-hail company generated $14.2 billion in bookings in the quarter ended December 31 — which includes what customers spend on Uber rides, Uber Eats orders, and other Uber services. Uber reported $3 billion in revenue, which is roughly the share of bookings the company is left with after paying out wages to drivers and delivery people. Both those figures — up from the same period a year earlier — represented Uber’s slowest growth rate for 2018. Uber lost $865 million in the latest quarter, down from a loss of $1.07 billion in the third quarter of 2018. The deceleration ...
