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 ...
Sometimes it seems obvious what to do if you're in an accident, but when it happens you may be stunned, confused, and even injured. It's important to know ahead of time the best practices so you come out on top. We put together a step by step list to make it easy. Call the Police. It's one of the first questions we ask drivers when they call us after an accident: "Did you file a police report?". This is very important because if it wasn't your fault, now you have written proof. Be Polite but don't admit fault. If it ...
A Passenger from Heck Story
I was finishing out Sunday night in my usual panic to make the 65-ride bonus. Since I can't drive faster, this means taking Pool Rides.
I didn't use to mind Uber Pool. They were nice people, deserved a break, and I could make back the loss with a full car and a lot of stops. ExpressPool has ruined all that. Take a look at my entry on Quora.com for my feelings about ExpressPool but it's made me refuse all pools as a general rule.
But Sunday evening isn't normal when you still need 7 rides ...
Seems like pretty basic stuff we all already know - Lyft allowed tipping before Uber, Lyft is generally the "nicer company", etc. Apparently this was all done as research for a book "Uberland". Has anyone read it?
Well, last night I picked this guy up, he smelled weed the worst possible way. It's legal in CA now. After a half hour ride, I got stacked by another pax request, accepted it, on my way to her I opened all four windows. Picked her up, she immediately complained of the smell, I explained it to her but she didn't buy it, became hostile, I pulled the car over at a well lit spot and politely asked her to GTFO and 1*. I ended the ride turned the app off, pulled over to write a complaint. Before I could ...
The ax has fallen at UBER, let's see how many of the 400 become drivers. https://www-cnbc-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/07/29/uber-cuts-about-400-jobs-from-its-marketing-team.html?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQA#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnbc.com%2F2019%2F07%2F29%2Fuber-cuts-about-400-jobs-from-its-marketing-team.html
Here's the kicker: "To get to profitability, ride-hailing companies will have to get rid of drivers or raise prices, and they are likely to do both "One of the biggest pressures is Uber’s relationships with its drivers, who went on strike worldwide Wednesday to protest the company’s business model ahead of its IPO. The drivers argue that Uber’s business model enriches company executives at the expense of its low-paid drivers, who are contractors, and not full-time employees with benefits (this issue is at the heart of several lawsuits that seek to get drivers classified as employees). Uber offers incentives ...
https://arstechnica.com/cars/2019/11/uber-lost-1-1-billion-last-quarter-says-rides-are-profitable-sort-of/?amp=1First time they are giving us more visibility into their revenue figures. Fun. Yet the company argues that things aren't as bad as that headline figure suggests. To show why, Uber broke its earnings down by business area, distinguishing its core "rides" app from Uber Eats, Uber Freight, and other operations.
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. ...
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.

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 ...
