Even calling into a customer service call (at a bank or whatever), we have the choice of asking not to be recorded. What about with rideshares like Uber and Lyft?
I understand that the car is a private property, and drivers have the rights to record inside their cabin. However, do I have the right to not be recorded upon request?
Do you think this will work? or be successful?There are a lot of food delivery apps out there – many of the big ones, but plenty of small ones, too, plus all of the chains getting involved with their own delivery apps!

Whatever happened to driver shortage and outrageous prices?(CNN Business)When a Chicago-area Uber driver checked his account balance after dropping off a customer at the airport on a Sunday morning in late May, he discovered something he'd never seen before: He was charged $2.20 for giving a 13.5 mile ride."On my 40-minute ride home, I was thinking about how I just lost money driving somebody," said the driver, Kurt, who asked that his last name be withheld for privacy reasons.Kurt said he submitted a request in the driver app for a fare review but the company said his …

"A few lucky Lyft riders who request a Lyft XL in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta will be surprised with the hot-doggiest ride in town from Wednesday, 8/25/21 through Friday, 8/27/21. The Wienermobile will be piloted by two five-star drivers, the Oscar Mayer Hot Doggers. Riders on the Wienermobile will enjoy their ride with music, neon lights, free shirts, hot dog masks, and Weinermobile shaped whistles (aka Weenie Whistles), all the way to their final destination."https://www.lyft.com/blog/posts/oscar-mayer-wienermobile
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.
From the RideshareGuy:Uber and Lyft have been offering drivers big incentives to hit the road, mainly because of the driver shortage, but is that enough to entice drivers to return to the platform?One of my biggest concerns for the rideshare industry is the yo-yo effect on drivers: drivers returning to the platform or joining it for the first time, making good money, then having demand dry up due to shutdowns nationwide. If that happens too many times, fewer drivers will see rideshare driving as a viable option to earn extra income - and that will really spell problems …
hello,So anyone know what this is about? Just got this email saying I’m an Uber VIP and will be matched with higher rated drivers. If this is true, then hopefully it’s a small step in the right direction. If it works right, it should give us something to care about (even if it’s a little) about our ratings. They’re pointless, for the most part, at the instant thx
