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?
Yep, someone was stupid enough to leave his bag full of marijuana in his Uber ride. Then instead of just cutting his loses he decided to try and get the bag back. Unfortunately for him, the cops had already been informed of the bags contents and they set up a bust.Full Story.
OMG, have you guys seen this video? I am slightly traumitized right now from wathcing it. The driver was not paying any attention at all! Probably looking at his phone. So terrible.
Drivers are well aware of the in and outs of the ride share experience as they live it on a day to day basis. However passengers, both novice and experienced, have an ongoing curiosity as to many aspects of the ride share game. What area of interest, do you as a passenger wish to have answered? Your upvote is appreciated.
Riders, I would be interested in hearing about all the best of the best rides you have experienced. What made them special or so good? Tell us one thing we can do as drivers that will tickle your fancy.
It is these kinds of stories that just gut me to the core. This poor girl, getting in the wrong car and winding up dead. It is so important to pay attention to your drivers license plate. I am still wondering how this guy pulled this off, did he just wait night after night outside a bar at closing time hoping a lone girl would mistake his car for their Uber? How many other people, groups, males, etc tried to get in his car mistaking him for an Uber that he has to turn away before he found his victim? …
My girlfriend told me this is absolutely true. I dismissed it as an urban legend, but then I heard from a driver the other day. Is there any basis on this rumor?...or is it really true? I know Uber historically has done some shady things.
Alright, I will admit. She had way too much to drink, and she was foaming at the mouth. Then she began to throw up on her shirt and skirt. Yes, I feel horrible, but I think we managed to not get any puke on the upholstery.
In any case, the driver pulls over (which is fine) and starts to snap pics, from different angles, with and wihout flash. It was totally uncalled for. In fact, I feel it criminal as he took pictures of my girl who was not feeling well. Upon asking, he told me he needed records.

I was thinking about driving for an Uber so I asked a driver of my intentions. I told him I'd like to do 9-5, and he laughed, laughed, and laughed, and finished his laugh torrent saying, "That'd never work. Stupid idea."
I laughed along, but didn't really know what was so funny. I assume he was referring to how I may be missing the crazy busy times like Saturday nights, but I feel like 8-hour days for 5 days a week will be adequate in making decent money.
Am I wrong? Is there something I don't know? Do drivers not …
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.
