The joker on CNBC says DK is a great executive. He got paid 43 million last year, probably more this year for losing 5.3 billion in one quarter. I would have done the job for half the 43 million he got paid. https://www.cnbc.com/video/2019/08/12/jim-cramer-uber-losses-ceo-dara-khosrowshahi-squawk-on-the-street.html
Let the battle begin.Electric scooters are worse for the planet than the modes of transportation they’re displacing, a study finds. Companies like Bird and Lime have been selling us a promise about their electric scooters: They’re great for the planet! For the most part, we’ve enthusiastically embraced this notion, and it’s helped catapult scooters into popularity. Last year, riders took about 38.5 million trips on them.But it might be time to question the climate-friendly narrative. Just because the scooters themselves don’t spew out carbon dioxide, doesn’t mean the process of making ...
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.
With NY passing tougher regulations on U/L and CA AB5 looking, the rideshare industry finally may be turning the corner benefiting the driver. Barriers to entry are very low but most drivers lose money after factoring in all the expenses. Most studies suggest drivers making well below minimum wage around the country.What would be a fair dollar number per app on hour? $30 gross like NY and city of El Monte (east of Los Angeles) suggest?
WTF??? Is this article really true? Is there a typo on the dollar amount? Just when you think you've heard it all! Uber spent 200K on Balloons but WAIT they are switching to stickers because they are cheaper! How do you explain spending 200K on balloons for employees "Uberversary" while you keep cutting drivers rates? This just goes to prove even more that Uber does not care about the drivers. Some heads should be rolling after this ridiculous expense. Rolling right out the door of Uber headquarters. Uber needs to add some names to the 400 employees they fired ...
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?
Lyft cant fly under the radar on this one. Uber's antics always gets the attention of the press and social media. Lyft for the most part has been able to keep away from the news media when it comes to bad press. Welcome Lyft! Your really messed up on this one. Women are going to hang you on this if this campaign takes off. You better fix it. https://amp-insider-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/amp.insider.com/lyft-vs-uber-failing-women-sparking-activists-2019-8?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s
I understand you may have to pull over and vacuum your car but beyond that those dogs are trained well. Drivers other option is to carry a aheet or blanket and put it down on the seats. The only other issue I see is if your allergic to dogs but unfortunately its part of the job. You know when you sign up that there is the possibility of getting a passenger with a service animal. Stop being a jerk! Whatever you do dont complain the whole ride about the dog. How would you feel if you were treated this way ...
PASSENGERSCan't stress enough how important it is to make sure what you see in your app matches the car who says they are your driver. Drivers pic, make, model, and license plate is displayed in your app if it DONT MATCH DO NOT GET INTO THAT CAR! ALL SHOULD MATCH UP. One thing off dont take that chance dont get in that car. Better to be safe than sorry. You are also able to see the car pull up to you in the app. If you are unsure call your driver when he pulls up if their phone ...
Any theories as to why Lyft would a driver helper app like this?Wouldn’t blocking a switching app that enables using multiple rideshare services hurt the No2 challenger like Lyft? If drivers had a choice, they’d obviously use Uber more drivers are driving for Uber first, then driving for both second and Lyft third.https://therideshareguy.com/lyft-blocks-mystro/
The ax has fallen at UBER, let's see how many of the 400 become drivers. https://www-cnbc-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/07/29/uber-cuts-about-400-jobs-from-its-marketing-team.html?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQA#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnbc.com%2F2019%2F07%2F29%2Fuber-cuts-about-400-jobs-from-its-marketing-team.html
Wall Street isn’t happy.Uber lost more money this spring than it did in any previous quarter, revealing on Thursday a dramatic $5.2 billion deficit in the months before and after its disappointing initial public offering.Losses of that size in just a three-month period might ordinarily trigger yet another round of questioning about whether the ride-hailing company can ever build a profitable business, a concern that has dogged the company since it became a Silicon Valley darling. But the company said that almost $4 billion of that amount is due to stock-based compensation that the company had ...
