WTG Lyft! I always call these companies out for their BS however they have made a positive decision for the drivers.Lyft (Logan) finally makes a decision on their own. Doesn't wait for Uber to do it first. Although I dont see Uber doing it at all. LYFT still has some more improvements to make for the drivers but they are headed in the right direction here in Philly and NJ. Lyft Increased some rates for drivers.PHILLY - increase in base fare, per mile mile, and per minute. NJ - increase in base fare, per mile, slight decrease in ...
Are they getting desperate? It's a total deflection tactic. Trying to shift the blame away from their technology but the answer is even more pathetic. "We forgot we turned it off." I mean, someone has to explain the "why".
Let the blame game begin! Aptiv vs. Uber.
"Uber Technologies, Inc. disabled the standard collision-avoidance technology in the Volvo SUV that struck and killed a woman in Arizona last week, according to the auto-parts maker that supplied the vehicle’s radar and camera.
“We don’t want people to be confused or think it was a failure of the technology that we ...
We get asked this question a lot at LegalRideshare and this is how we break it down.First, we always have to consider, "is a Uber or Lyft a private situation?" We often lean on the side of "no, it's not." It's comparable to taking public transportation like a bus in a major city. We always tell passengers, "if you wouldn't go outside and scream something absurd, I wouldn't say it in an Uber". The issue lies on the fact that passengers aren't always aware of the laws (or lack thereof) and are looking for their rights to be protected. ...
Here's what I did to pass the time between fares during my cab career.
Most of these were done at O'Hare Airport in the Taxi Staging Area in 2009.
Here's one done at the Yellow Taxi Garage, where I spent many hours, sometimes days, waiting to get a cab to drive.

Anyone with 1000 rides or better can tell you ride share is no fun and games. You have your moments of sublime peace and an occasional laugh; but, then the real world catches up and life sux. The oil needs changing, two tires are iffy, you have no spare and the car still smells like your last rider. The average life of an Uber driver is 6-9 months. It's addictive because you have $100 daily instant cashflow and those $300 days have you walking on clouds. But after the learning curve, it takes a certain breed to stick with it. ...
Make themselves readily findable. Help the driver to find them quickly and easily by text or calling. Treat the driver with the same dignity and respect they would like to be shown. Be personable and reasonable in your demands. Recognize the driver as an individual trying desperately to get ahead of their status quo and needing uplifting and encouragement just like the next guy. Tip ride share drivers like they are a bartender or restaurant wait staff. Believe me they have far more personal expenses driving this vehicle and responsibilities for your safety than either of those groups and you ...
5 (plus 2) Ways to Contact Uber for Help
Whether you’re on the road or taking the day off, drivers can contact Uber for support whenever they need to — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
1. In-app support
We have been working hard to reimagine the support experience for riders and drivers. To us, it's very clear – support belongs, first and foremost, in the app. And now it does: both of our iPhone and Android apps offer In-App Support.
Updating your account in the app:
If you need to update your profile information, add new vehicles, ...
If you do these ten things, you will die a contented person. They take no prior training. They take no talent or special twist.

Being Prepared5. Passion6. Work Ethic7. Doing Extra8. Attitude9. Being Coachable10. Being on Time!!! AlwaysNow, go be a man my son.
Hmmm… First and foremost it is a big leap from what some of these other answers have suggested (about being provably intoxicated, sexual harassment or physical assault) and giving someone less than five stars. To heck with the stars, if a driver commits any of these acts you first contact the authorities and then Uber/Lyft. Drivers commiting these acts should not be driving.
As I have suggested before, this whole ratings thing is BS as far as I am concerned. It is so completely subjective and should have nothing to do with if the driver provided snacks, water and amenities. ...
My valid documents have been rejected by the Uber computer and although the Help staff and I have tried numerous times to rectify the situation it just keeps producing the same outcome. There is absolutely no real tech support with a living person available and the Help staff are not empowered to make changes despite what they can see on their screens. This is an egregious flaw in the Uber technologies technology/corporate structure. 😫
They claimed to take 20% of gross at one point (Uber and Lyft). Then it went to 25%. However if you carefully read the trip charges of your trips you see that Uber/Lyft take certain monies before the 75-25 split. This is different fees and charges the riders pay, that the driver never sees. There have been many times where I have looked at the trip charges and the total the rider pays. Uber/Lyft sometimes end up with 50% of the money the rider pays. When you call Uber on it they don't have any real clear answer either (except ...
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.
I've seen this on 2 other occassions when my kids call me for a ride. This all started back in the Summer of 2018 possibly further back. This past Saturday night my son & his gf were at his Christmas party in CC Philadelphia an area that frequently surges on the weekends. I get a phone call asking me if I was in the area because Uber wanted $65.71 for the ride. The ride down was $24.48. When surge went off the ride was $23.98. The drivers app showed a surge of $6.50 with a 3 for $3.50 consecutive ride ...
