I heard they are trying to crack down on it.
I did see this thread as an example of how they are starting to deactivate drivers and stopped paying cleaning fees. How are they catching these drivers and settling the disputes?
Banned from charging Uber cleaning fee?
What is the "cleaning fees" and "vomit" SCAM by Uber drivers? Should I be concerned? How do I avoid them?
According to CNET "the longer tipping is available in the app, the more passengers hand over gratuities. For instance, in the first six months, Uber drivers earned $200 million in tips and in the last six months drivers earned $400 million."
Looks like we might be seeing a shift in rideshare tipping culture.
I saw this excellent question on Quora, but there doesn't seem to be many answers there. I decided to post it here because I am very interested in what the drivers have to say.
No, I am not an Uber or Lyft driver currently. (Full disclosure: My husband signed up and drove once, just once, on a friend's dare. Hahaha)
I'm curious driving full time for Uber actually works. I'd love to hear your experience. Can you really make a living with it as a primary job?
What is it in the public's mindset that has set the stage for such a bruhaha over tipping RideShare drivers? I don't read any other subject/topic that has gotten so much time and discussion and with so little result. What has lowered the status of said drivers to less than maids or car parking attendants (people tip them without a single word of discussion, opposition or question). Not only do people not tip but you would be amazed at the ones who try to game the system for freebies. Many times frivolous complaints are claimed at the expense of innocent …

I was reading today that some drivers in other states havent been able to see how much they made on their trips. They are not being paid either. I cashed out for last night this morning when I read this. No problem. Just headed out picked up my 1st .5 mile trip (so annoying) but hey maybe they tipped. I dont know what I made on trip let alone if I got a tip. App not working as other drivers said. It shows you made 1 trip then few minutes later a red note comes up that there is a …
Hi, I’m new to the forum. One of the reasons I was invited by the CEO is because I drive for 6 apps, 3 of which are for kids. I’m the San Francisco Bay Area and drive for HopSkipDrive, Kango and Zūm. HopSkipDrive is also available in L.A. and Denver, and Zūm in L.A. I’d like to hear from anyone who drives for any of these companies. If there are other kid rideshare drivers out there in other areas, also make yourself known.
For those you unfamiliar with kid rideshare, it’s typically for kids 5-17, though there can be younger …
I was ready to debate Uber and Lyft but the chickens did not show up they declined invitation.https://spectrumnews1.com/ca/la-west/inside-the-issues/2019/08/09/rideshare-drivers--have-their-concerns-been-heard-?cid=share_clip
As we all know it was a rough ride for drivers over the weekend. No access on driver's app to see your trips, how much you made, and the worst part was you couldnt cash out to get paid. Drivers were unable to drive as they had no access to their pay. I also had issues with navagation. This isnt the first time this has happened. A few months back there was an issue with the instant pay. I waited a week for my pay last time this happened. Then it occured again a few days later, although this time …
One thing I realized as I started driving a few years ago is that you pick up people in various states of emotions. Obvious? No, it never crossed my mind. One that stands out to me is the pax that cry the whole trip, because you know there is a deep story there - at least in my mind.I picked a girl up last night, who said very little and cried the whole trip of about 30 minutes. Mid day. I did ask her if she was okay and she said she is fine. I offered a small water …
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.
Whatever happened to driver shortage and outrageous prices?(CNN Business)When a Chicago-area Uber driver checked his account balance after dropping off a customer at the airport on a Sunday morning in late May, he discovered something he'd never seen before: He was charged $2.20 for giving a 13.5 mile ride."On my 40-minute ride home, I was thinking about how I just lost money driving somebody," said the driver, Kurt, who asked that his last name be withheld for privacy reasons.Kurt said he submitted a request in the driver app for a fare review but the company said his …
I took an Uber this morning and noticed on my trip receipt that there was a "wait time" fee added to my fare. I was ready when the driver went to pick me up and Im not sure why I had to pay for that. Thanks
