I’ve lost trust for Lyft. I recently booked a ride from a hotel near the cruise port to the terminal. My ride and even those of other parties reserved the night before kept getting cancelled over snd over. The app would show the driver close then the driver would cancel. The feeling was they wanted more expensive airport trips. We eventually got rides 3 hours after the promised time. Is there any way to avoid this in the future other than taking a city bus to be safe?
One thing I realized as I started driving a few years ago is that you pick up people in various states of emotions. Obvious? No, it never crossed my mind. One that stands out to me is the pax that cry the whole trip, because you know there is a deep story there - at least in my mind.I picked a girl up last night, who said very little and cried the whole trip of about 30 minutes. Mid day. I did ask her if she was okay and she said she is fine. I offered a small water …

This one is my favorite:"I drove a guy who told me he was cheating on his wife with his cocaine dealer, and that it had been going on for 25 years. I don't know what impresses me more: a 25-year affair or a 25-year cocaine habit!" https://www.buzzfeed.com/asiawmclain/taxi-and-uber-drivers-are-sharing-secrets-people-told-them
The company’s customers aren’t very loyal, so Uber is slashing prices.Uber’s fastest growing line of business, Uber Eats, is facing stiff competition. In the first quarter of 2019, 46 percent of people who ordered Uber Eats in the US also ordered from one or more of its competitors, according to new credit and debit card purchasing data from Second Measure. As US customers are increasingly using more than one food-delivery app to order meals, apps like Uber, DoorDash, and GrubHub are in a “pricing race to the bottom.” It’s a problem that Uber knows all too well in its …

I do not understand how it takes 7 minutes (plus the time it takes for me to get to you) to get ready for a car they requested.The whole idea of the app is that (1) it tells you how long it takes for the car to arrive, (2) exact time of arrival, and (3) show you real-time updates as I get closer to you. Why 7 minutes?Come on, Uber. This is too lenient. This just spoils more riders.
Do you ever use Uber to find out the time and price of your destination before you leave?One day, I noticed that the price always went up after I checked beforehand. The more up-to-date the fare, the higher it is.Is this because Uber is sure I will get a ride?
