Uber serge posted about this a few weeks back so I contacted the Company. Karaoke mic was totally free $0 no cost at all. Just have to send screen shot that shows you are actively driving. Doesn't matter how many hours you drive. They send the mic immediately, came in a few days. You can sign up with their affilate company which you will then receive a code. Every mic that is purchased with your code you will receive $10 and buyer gets 10% off. I believe they are $60. Connects to your radio via bluetooth or a bluetooth speaker. ...
Very easy to do, just follow the steps. It is definitely necessary in order to be part of major class action lawsuits coming up. Uber TOS guarantees no retaliation like a deactivation. You have 30 days to do so like it was with Lyft as well!https://drivers-united.org/uber-arbitration-opt-out
VW and several startups are exploring ways to make commuting less painful -- for riders and the planet. https://www.cnet.com/news/these-posh-ride-sharing-startups-aim-to-leave-uber-and-lyft-in-the-dust/
I’m a first timer visiting Seattle. If I need to get from a hotel near Seattle Center (Seattle Repertory Theatre) to a restaurant about a mile away near First Ave & Wall St around 5 pm, how long before 5 pm should I call a taxi or Uber/Lyft? And if I need to be back at the Seattle Rep by 7:15, again, how far ahead do I need to call? I know from Mapquest the drive will take less than 10 minutes, but I don’t know how long it’s likely to take before my ride arrives.
On Sunday, LegalRideshare did a Facebook Live Q&A with Attorney Bryant Greening. We've covered insurance, periods of driving, autonomous vehicles, AB5 and a bunch of other topcs. We're looking to do it again in the coming weeks and happy to take any questions you have ahead of time. Here's the previous Q&A:
Uber has a reputation for hiding how they calculate their exact fares and determining how the surges are determined. While their rates are technically posted on their websites (as legally bound in many jurisdiction), they seem to not follow these rates at all.Can you share your suspicion, confirmed or unconfirmed, on how Uber sets its prices? How it uses data and how it takes advantage of people's situations? I will respond to myself to start it off.This is of course besides the distance, duration, demand (for surges), etc.
Drivers and Riders of Uber, Lyft, etc...
The most frequently asked question passengers ask me is "What is your craziest, scariest, or most funny Uber story? I thought I would share some of my stories here. The good, the bad, and the ugly! Names have been changed to protect the innocent, the drunk, the mean, and the crazy Uber/Lyft riders.
Uber/Lyft drivers I would love to hear some of your stories/experience while driving. Please feel free to share.

Some passengers just don’t get it. What are some things that annoy you? Add to the list and let me know what you think of it!1) MAKE IT EASY/SAFE FOR US TO PICK YOU UP!This is the biggest one. Some passengers have some ridiculous pick up points. No, I will not stop on a 4 lane one-way road with no shoulder during rush hour to pick you up. This is unsafe. I am not going to block traffic for you. You’re gonna have to walk to my car a block away for this one or I’m cancelling.2) ...
Thisn't for the faint of heart. Five "popular" passenger scams that drivers need to watch out for. Have you experienced any of these?
If you are a passenger, don't get any ideas. Uber and Lyft are putting more and more countermeasures in place, and drivers are quick to catch on.

1) Dropping the Pin Outside of a Surge Zone
It didn’t take long for passengers to figure out this one. Since surge and prime time zones are very localized, one street could be 2x and another could be 1.5x or even regular pricing. What ...
I drive in Philly. Mostly nights. I do pick up a lot of drunk people and i have had riders that are probably doing more than drinking. I frequently sit at a gas station few blocks from home positioned between Philly and Andalusia (Bucks county) when waiting for rides. I know the staff there and speak with them fequently. About 3am Monday morning I am done so I stop to clean my car and get gas for following night. One of the workers says that the car at the pump has been there for awhile with a female sleeping. So ...
I keep reading about this big new campaign to encourage riders to ask drivers what their name is before getting in the vehicle. This bothers me as it is really the only way us drivers have to check the validity of our riders. Riders can check the license plate, car color, car make/model, etc. Have you had any passengers do this to you yet?
Wow this is absolutely ridiculous. And I thought Uber was bad 😂 https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/11/10/a-woman-was-murdered-by-her-rideshare-driver-the-companys-solution-a-curfew-for-female-passengers/
I have been driving for Uber for more than a year.On 26th of October, I had very unexpected which later turned to be very unpleasant experience driving with Uber. It was Saturday evening, and I was in high demand area with high surge. I was getting back to back trips as well.After completing one of the trip, I noticed it doesn’t show up on my driver dashboard. I stopped my car and called Uber-support, the CSR asked me some details and she was able to track the trip. CSR told me there is nothing to worry, since the ...
