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.
This reminds me of the branch-less banks that were so successful in the 2000-2010. There's been some consolidations and reversion to brick and mortar, but it is an excellent idea. Lower the overhead in having staff and large storefront. Two of the things that cost majorly on food establishments.https://www.cloudkitchens.com/
Sometimes it seems obvious what to do if you're in an accident, but when it happens you may be stunned, confused, and even injured. It's important to know ahead of time the best practices so you come out on top. We put together a step by step list to make it easy. Call the Police. It's one of the first questions we ask drivers when they call us after an accident: "Did you file a police report?". This is very important because if it wasn't your fault, now you have written proof. Be Polite but don't admit fault. If it ...
This is good, right? Combatting sleepy and overworked drivers.
"Uber has added a feature that will force a six-hour offline break whenever a driver on its platform reaches 12 hours of driving time. The feature is similar to one that Uber has in place in a few markets already around the U.S., which differs depending on local regulations, but this will apply across the U.S., and fully block use of the driver app for accepting trips during the six-hour period when it becomes active."
"Uber’s decision to roll this out was made as a response to the problem of drowsy ...
In the olden days, they called it a cab garage... If it quacks like a duck, it's time we started calling these public vehicles "taxis", because that's what they are. Just modified for our cutthroat late-capitalist age.
I just got a notice that I was banned from charging the cleaning fee! I have charged about 20 cleaning fees, maybe 1 every other week, as I drive in a big college town and see a lot of puke and spills. I always provide pictures and they always get approved but now all the sudden they are saying I can no longer charge the fee? Did I hit some sort of cleaning fee threshold. Just ridiculous as all my cleaning fees have been legit and obviously Uber thought so too as they were all approved. I can't help it ...
The new driver app is out! What do y'all think of it? I've heard some complaints that it's harder to switch between Uber and Lyft with it and complaints that it's harder to find your earnings. Thoughts?
I am arriving at Newark (EWR) Airport in Terminal B. What Level do I meet my Lyft driver on? I know to go to Arrivals, but aren't there more than 1 level? Do I cross over to the island once outside?
OK, I'm old and I've been playing with computers for more years than most of my riders have been alive. So it's embarrassing to admit but I got Phished last week (and darn near gutted and filleted as well.)
This is a scam aimed directly at rideshare drivers. The thief or thieves appear to have a hack into the Uber computer or just knows a heck of a lot about it. Here's what went down:
During the busiest period of the night last Friday, I got a ping on the Uber app to pick up "Alix" at a nearby hotel. ...
In 2003 the Public Chauffeur Training Institute was located at Harold Washington College on Lake Street downtown. This was the place you had to go if you wanted to become a taxi or limo driver in the city of Chicago. I was returning to the job after six years of delivery driving, waiting tables, bartending and a few other service-industry gigs—none of which seemed to suit me financially, temperamentally, or in any other way. While I wasn’t a newly arrived immigrant to this city and country like the majority of my classmates, I still hadn’t quite found my place ...
Has anyone ever had ride from Driver Ed in Philadelphia? A young guy drives for Uber in Philadelphia he plays an instrumental version of some well known songs. Catch is he provides no words. Passengers sing along and if they dont know the words they are encouraged to make them up. With their permission he post the video. Good Day Philadelphia tv show hosts took a ride with him and tried to sing a few songs. It's a good thing they dont need to sing for a living lol. Some riders are drunk some are not but they all look ...
