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.
Open my app yesterday to see a video Uber made for its drivers. Tells you how many people from other countries you have driven, how many sunset and sunrise trips, how many 5 star trips, longest amount of trips in a row that were 5 star, and how long you have been driving. Stats are a few months old but other than that it was pretty cool. Anyone else see theirs? Your thoughts?

I came up with this. What do you think?
5⭐️ Keep this driver on the road.
4⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, but we’ll forgive them this time.
3⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, strike 1 out of 3.
2⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, and this is the final warning, strike 2 out of 3.
1⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated NOW!
What passengers think:

4⭐️ Pretty good, but I’ve had better. (B)
3⭐️ Just an average ride ...
This article nicely sums up what I think a lot of us were already thinking.As we’ve reported before, Uber's success has been based on two unsustainable tactics: subsidizing fares and exploiting drivers.https://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-uber-fare-increase-20190531-story.htmlAfter losing over $1B last quarter there is no question things are going to change. This industry is in for some interesting times.
I'm a dispatcher, they haven't killed us but they have surely given us a wound we can't really recover from. Most of our drivers if they're not answering our calls or alerts from their systems about potential jobs we're assuming are doing Uber jobs.Uber, Lyft, and Juno are all apps that show up on their phones during monthly inspections. We also have to make sure they're not using GPS cheaters to fake being somewhere while doing an Uber job.Mostly what keeps us in business is SUV work and specialty vehicles like Mercedes ...
I recently received a go to the pin request for a pick-up. I went where Uber sent me! I sat outside a driveway where I went to waiting time. The phone rang , I picked up, and the client asked me where I was. I informed him that I was waiting on a dead end street in a cul-de-sac for him. He told me that he was at the Sunoco about 50 yards away - (through a backyard)! I told him, “I’m on my way!” When I got there ( about 3 minutes later), I told the client and his boyfriend/girlfriend ...
Here's the kicker: "To get to profitability, ride-hailing companies will have to get rid of drivers or raise prices, and they are likely to do both "One of the biggest pressures is Uber’s relationships with its drivers, who went on strike worldwide Wednesday to protest the company’s business model ahead of its IPO. The drivers argue that Uber’s business model enriches company executives at the expense of its low-paid drivers, who are contractors, and not full-time employees with benefits (this issue is at the heart of several lawsuits that seek to get drivers classified as employees ...
You just can't teach an old dog new tricks, can you.SAN FRANCISCO — Uber shut down a party at a satellite California office and at least one employee resigned after some celebrations marking its initial public offering last week got out of hand, according to current and former employees, a setback for the company’s efforts to change its corporate culture. Those people said that the celebrations, which kicked off with company-provided mimosas on the day of one of the largest public offerings in recent history, made them feel uncomfortable and seemed immature — especially as Uber’s stock price ...
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 ...
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?

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?
