I know. It's been expected...but man, $100B.“It’s the Lyft effect,” said Kathleen Smith, a principal at Renaissance Capital who manages an I.P.O. fund. “This is what Uber should try very hard to avoid — it should not have a stock that breaks its I.P.O. price.”https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/10/technology/uber-ipo.html
Is there a way I can flag on my Uber app that I am a passenger with disabilities? I’m aware that it can work the other way, I’ve had notifications before that my driver is deaf, but I see no way to flag that I’m not fully able bodied and it does impact how I use Uber. UberAccess isn’t available in my area. I mostly use uber for short journeys purely because I’m unable to walk. I often use a cane/walking stick but not always. It also means that if my driver doesn’t ...
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 ...

As ride-sharing vehicles have upended the taxi market in New York, taxi drivers have been hit with increasing debt despite working longer shifts, leading to incredible stress and depression for some.
But those financial ...
Women “Uberized” the economy long ago... "Women run daycares out of their homes, provide cleaning services to neighbors, and carpool to soccer practice and other after-school events."https://qz.com/495003/for-women-around-the-world-the-gig-economy-is-just-business-as-usual/

HI All, Upon doing my taxes, something important came to mind that I had not considered at a potentially huge personal cost! It is no secret that I have urged people to turn off Uber rather than use DM when Uber takes a HUGE percentage of the driver's take.* (even to call in and tell them you would have been online if they stopped stealing.) The problem is (if you are using the app to track miles) that the mileage is not counted in the app for these rides. If you are driving home for an hour or two ...

Hell is other people — and few people know this better than Uber drivers.
The ride-hailing transportation company has transformed global taxi markets, and made it possible to get around with just the tap of a button. But that ease and simplicity comes with a cost — for its drivers.
Uber drivers will often see people at their very worst: Drunk, angry, late, and entitled. We asked Uber drivers to tell us about some of the worst passengers they've ever experienced, from intoxicated carnage to sexual harassment.
These are their stories.

Will this really help in eliminating fake drivers? I would think criminals would simply premeditate their attacks and can just have these light-up signs.https://nj1015.com/uber-lyft-drivers-would-need-light-up-signs-under-jersey-city-rule/
Really good read, the steps this guy takes to give his riders amazing customer service is unreal. Things like wiping down floor maps in between every ride. Spraying lemon fresh scent and keeping windows down until his next pick up to ensure a clean smell. Even always asking if they have enough room and moving his seat up. So impressive.
