This week I was three weeks from my two year anniversary with Uber. I have a 4.94 rating (490 5 star, 4 4 star, 6 1 star) and I have done over 4800 rides. I have had no accidents, only one ticket over a year and a half ago and it was my word against the officers (yellow light/officer said red). I never cancel on riders other than no-shows or extreme conditions such as the car breaking down. I almost always beat the time given on the app - I never pause when going to get a passenger. I felt ...
Is that legit? or better yet, legal? I am not breaking the terms of using the Uber account as I am the one with the account and credite card. I have three children and I'd love to utilize Uber or Lyft. Safe too.
Please do share. Remember when some dude died after getting kicked off Lyft? I can't help it to think he did something to be kicked out, you know?

This Uber driver claimes that this Phoenix school called his Uber and tried to put 8 little kids in his car to transport! Unreal, even schools are trying to cut costs with Uber.
Uber Drivers: How Far Will You Drive To Pick-Up A Fare Without Knowing Their Destination? Okay, here’s what happened today to me - I signed on to my Driver Uber App and a Premium Destination popped up. I accepted the pick-up and app informed me that the customer was 27 minutes and 13 miles away. I drove there , it took about 22 minutes. I picked up client at her house , pressed my App for the drop-off Destination , and saw that drop-off was 1 mile away. I chatted with the lady, dropped her off and headed back to ...
I am thinking about signing for Uber but I'd like to try out the food deliveries instead of passengers, i.e. UberX. Is there a way to do that?
and in case you are wondering, nah, I don't feel like dealing with people. I hear too many scary stories. Plus, I live in an area that has many restaurants, and I feel like I will be able to make good money.
Dara has apparently sent letters to governors of all 50 states asking them to prioritize rideshare drivers. Will you get the vaccine if it is offered to you? I am personally all for it but I know there is a lot of controversy out there.https://www.newsweek.com/uber-ceo-dara-khosrowshahi-twitter-criticism-early-covid-vaccine-access-essential-drivers-1554028
After 50 Uber rides, I finally ran into an Uber driver who had a sundry shop open in his car. He sold water, gum, mints, head phones, charging cables, bags of chips, red bull, chapsticks, etc. etc.
I asked the driver and he told he can do whatever he wants because he is an independent and the products have nothing to do with Uber, the company. I don't know the legality of opening up a store in the back of a Toyota Camry, but with all legal stuff aside, what are other ways drivers make money? What are cool things ...
I've been trying to keep my backseat stocked with clorox wipes and hand sanitizer but it's getting expensive and I have had my clorox wipes swiped more than once! Am I in the minority for supplying these things? Should I just let pax bring their own?
Hey All,Looking for some honest feedback from rideshare drivers. We make in-car vending machines - our vending machines are completely self-service so you don't have to hand products to passengers. Passengers scan a QR code, select the items they want in our app, the sections with the items open up and the customer is charged for products the select. We were wondering which business model will appeal to rideshare drivers and will appreciate your feedback. We also understand that not all Uber/Lyft drivers like to sell products in their car and that is totally fine - we are seeking ...
This is pre-covid, but gosh, this is sort of article that sets the wrong expectation for new drivers and the public. Everyone thinks us drivers are swimming in money.$6000 x 12 = $72,000. Working six days a week. It's super misleading though, because it requires long hours (11 hours on weekdays and 8+ hours on Saturdays) and it doesn't consider for expenses.https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/30/a-day-in-the-life-of-a-full-time-uber-lyft-and-juno-driver-in-nyc.html
Riding my bike around Chicago these days I'm always wary of cars pulled over, idling by the curb, or, more often, blocking the bike lane. A few years ago most of these obstacles in my path were clearly identifiable by their markings—they were taxis. Now it's much more difficult to tell public vehicles from private. But from my many years as a cabdriver I can still catch the telltale signs.
Though the only outward thing to give them away is an airplane decal on the back window, a dumb pink mustache or that ominous U on the dash, the drivers' ...
