"Uber and Lyft are threatening to halt their ridesharing service in California after a judge rejected the companies’ effort to delay an order that forces the companies to classify drivers as employees. The popular ridesharing companies were given 10 days to reclassify their drivers in California as employees which according to Uber and Lyft is near impossible. The deadline to reclassify is now only 3 days away, August 20th, and Uber and Lyft have said that if they are forced to stick with this deadline that they will need to “go dark” in California for some time."https://ride.guru/content/newsroom/will-uber-and-lyft-really-pull-out-of-california-this-week

I heard from my nephew that Uber drives are sometimes so desperate to make money that they would randomly charge cleaning fees for no reason whatsoever. Is this true? What can I do to stop it or make sure it doesn't happen.
LOL:The ride home was long, partly because of the distance, and partly because of the conversation. We (he) talked about masks, and about how, at the time, Uber wasn’t asking drivers to wear them. Then we (he) talked about how maybe the virus was overblown in the news. Then we (he) talked about how his entire family (wife and five kids) had been sick for the months of February and March. Then he said the thing that is still ringing in my ears.“I’m pretty sure I’m an a-systematic carrier.”I didn’t know what bothered me most: that I ...
In a local flier coupon a particular local taxi stated they are covid compliant and couldn't stop laughing . Most taxi s whether yellow or app based drivers DO NOT clean the back properly or none at all . This particular company hasn't cleaned their cars since it left the assembly line and drivers from other companies are not making the money they should so therefore why would anyone think that the back of the car will be clean when you get in ???

The Council on Thursday will vote on a bill to establish a new “Office of Financial Stability” within the TLC designed to keep tabs on the health of the city’s crumbling yellow cab industry. Bronx Councilman Ritchie Torres, the bill’s sponsor, said he wanted to prevent a repeat of history when the city sold medallions or approved medallion sales at prices of $1 million and more. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-tlc-taxi-medallion-oversight-20201015-2pyve3pmfreuvfsii6mpjh43ta-story.html

It is so happening Who would have seen this coming 😂Ford politely said “could you please put on your mask?”He huffed and responded “why, you think I have corona?”At that point I explained to him that we don’t know who has coronavirus, and that it’s about taking precautions, and that Uber requires drivers and passengers to wear masks.While he then put on the mask:He spent 30 seconds ranting about masks and how they’re uncomfortable to wear, and how he can’t believe we think that he has coronavirusHe started driving much more aggressively, accelerating fast, ...
I appreciate Uber putting in some measures in place, but can we face the hard truths?You have a high exposure of Covid-19 when you get into an Uber, because:Covid vapors and droplets are floating in the air from previous passengersCovid vapors and droplets are floating in the air from drivers who only put their masks on upon pickupDoor knobs, car seats, windows, etc. are likely to have been touched by previous passengers with no clean up in betweenWe have to admit that most drivers do not:Put their masks on until the next riders are ...
