Contrary to their original claims that U/L would solve traffic issues, they have made things much worse. 😆https://www-theverge-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2019/8/6/20756945/uber-lyft-tnc-vmt-traffic-congestion-study-fehr-peers?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theverge.com%2F2019%2F8%2F6%2F20756945%2Fuber-lyft-tnc-vmt-traffic-congestion-study-fehr-peers
Lyft is testing it’s driverless cars in Las Vegas, they’re offering rides for 20% more than a human driven car. Would you ride in one? Would you trust being in car without a steering wheel, gas or brake pedal?
Vehicle: 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid. 129,000 miles.I do all the maintenance on it. Use Mobil1. Replaced spark plugs at 103,342 miles. I have Techstream software on a laptop with the OBD usb connector.PROBLEM:At about 125K miles, engine started running a little rougher when cold. at 126K I got a check engine light, and noticed also a mild decrease in MPG as reported on the dash. Running techstream, it indicated cyl 1 and 3 misfire, and also an "all" cylinder misfire. As I had replaced the plugs, I opted to replace the ignition coils. Bought a ...
I came up with this. What do you think?
5⭐️ Keep this driver on the road.
4⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, but we’ll forgive them this time.
3⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, strike 1 out of 3.
2⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated, and this is the final warning, strike 2 out of 3.
1⭐️ Driver needs to be terminated NOW!
What passengers think:
5⭐️ This is the best ride I’ve ever had! I only want this driver to drive me. (A)
4⭐️ Pretty good, but I’ve had better. (B)
3⭐️ Just an average ride ...
I dont want to be an employee along with many other drivers. However we all want increase in rates, safety ( riders sign up with legit ID), and ratings/deactivation changes. The group that wore IC shirts and spoke up at the Rally didnt want to be employees but not one mentioned increase in rates, safety, or ratings. It was so clear Dara's Dirty underhanded tactics were used. Dara and staff are absolutely disgusting douche bags. They are so crooked and dishonest they would sell their own mothers if it would benefit them. Those drivers sold their soul to the ...
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 ...
Uber apparently has been taken over by Bernie Sanders. They don’t want us using destination mode anymore so instead of simply disabling it they are going to pay us 30% less while using it and re-distribute that money to the drivers that do not use the destination mode. How do drivers feel about this? There is a way to submit feedback on the announcement they released in Chicago today. If you are against this idea you should probably go say something.I feel like customers are going to get in my car now hoping to go to their far ...
https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/6/20755163/new-york-city-self-driving-shuttle-serviceMuch like other autonomous vehicle (AV) shuttle services that have cropped up in recent years across the country, it is extremely slow and restricted only to a single route: 1.1 miles from the entrance of the Navy Yard to the New York City Ferry dock on the East River. The service will operate on a continuous loop between 7AM and 10:30PM on weekdays. Each car has two safety drivers: one behind the wheel and one in the passenger seat monitoring the vehicle’s sensors from a laptop. Engineers at ...
I love how this guy drives for a month or two and thinks he is an expert for a documentary. Curious if anyone hear has actually watched it.https://eurweb.com/2019/08/03/rideshare-drivers-explosive-new-documentary-takes-revealing-inside-look-at-uber-and-lyft/
Taco Mode Lyft? Seriously?This is getting absolutely rediculous. Lyft and Uber are trying anything and everything to make a profit. Submarines, helicopters, what next? Uber teamed up with Cargo and drivers get 1.00 if riders order/purchase an item from Cargo. We are getting into the big bucks now:) Lyft teamed up with Taco Bell. They need to increase fares (sorry riders) and stop spending every dime they get on autonomous cars. https://www.distractify.com/trending/2017/07/26/ZYv9Yf/lyft-taco-mode
Shows off the power of flexible on-demand workforce. Gig-economy at its best. Mitchell is part of a growing number of seniors driving for ride-hailing apps, such as Uber and Lyft, to supplement their retirement income. On the flip side, the costs and regulations to be a driver are rising while the pay rates have fallen.Will Uber drivers becoming employees put a stop to this?https://www.huffpost.com/entry/more-seniors-becoming-uber-lyft-drivers-in-retirement_n_57f2b442e4b024a52d304eb1
I got a ping in Malibu, I show up at a 20 million dollar beachfront home, some dude comes out with a box, opens the rear pax door, puts the box down and says thank you. I asked him I can’t take a sealed box without knowing what’s in it, he says it’s nothing illegal, I said it won’t fly, I need to see the contents, he opens it up, it was about 10 bottles of CBD oil. I know weed is legal in CA but I didn’t think I could carry that much of ...
