My wife and I are looking to move down to florida for the winter, we have a lead on a house we can house sit so there wouldn't be additional cost. We are going crazy being stuck inside with our young kids every single day with this pandemic going on. Is it easy to drive in another city for Uber?
I am hearing more and more stories about drivers and riders butting heads over mask usage and other safety concerns.Perhaps drivers should be aware of this feedback page that passengers have now. See below.
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 …
This is for the drivers. Do you guys mind picking me up, and then picking up someone else up, it it meant you had to wait a few minutes? Think the scenario. I have a date, and I want to pick her up. I want to arrive on an Uber, go to her door (I am a gentleman), and walk her back to the car.
Are drivers annoyed by this? I am not saying I will wait 20 minutes for her to get ready. I just will be leaving the car to go get her. 5 minutes, maybe 10 minutes …
I'm just curious what drivers think about this, and if making out in the backseat of an Uber would make my passenger rating go down. Nothing crazy happening but I'm just curious what people's opinions are on this.
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. …
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 …

Any drivers have any passengers in past 18 mths who still thinks you are not supposed to tip driver? Picked up a 64 yr old guy and grandson 2 nights ago for a 60 min trip on Uber. Had a nice conversation on our ride. We get to his house and I get out to open back up to get his luggage out. He says, "I know your not suppose to tip but I really want you to have this" and hands me 10.00. I was shocked, had he not taken an Uber in 2yrs? I said thank you and …
