What they don’t tell you…
Well for one thing, that I would have a constant crick in my neck from trying to get comfortable sleeping in my car. Dang that automotive engineer that designed those seat belts so they won’t lay down flat and poke you in the lower ribs and stomach. Tip take a thick fluffy towel. Roll it up and drape it around your neck for a comfortable car pillow.
They didn’t tell me I would depreciate my car 150,000 miles worth. But I got 54.5 cents per mile Safe Harbor Rate from the IRS as a tax …
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.
In 2012 I walked away from the taxi business never to return. Looking back on it now I feel fortunate to have gotten out just in time. Earlier that year Über entered the Chicago market. They recruited me right away because I had a book out about the taxi business. Back then they were all about making their service seem like a hip new thing. There was practically no work but among the people I drove using their app was comedian Reggie Watts. The company worked hard to recruit taste-makers to their cause. I didn't care much for using the …
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.
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.
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.
Hi,I am an uber driver in New York city for almost five years now with 17,421 rides and a star rating of 4.87, just last till now I encounter rude behavior from some riders.

ZipCar, Uber, and other rideshare companies want to make it illegal to own your own self-driving car in the city.
My Uber driver who drives for like four companies told me he can deny service and cancel any requests whenever and for whatever reason Is this true?I feel like there has to be a guideline and some mandate from Uber.

A recent study performed by Netquote Insurance Company swabed 9 cars. 3 Rideshare 3 Rent A Car, and 3Taxi's. Found that rideshare cars have more germs than a toilet seat. What are your thoughts?https://6abc-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/6abc.com/amp/health/rideshare-cars-have-more-germs-than-toilet-seat-study-says/5296817/?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQDoAEA#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2F6abc.com%2Fhealth%2Frideshare-cars-have-more-germs-than-toilet-seat-study-says%2F5296817%2F
That is the ONLY thing that makes sense. A new car would be ruined by the mileage you run up on it. Plus a new car is probably financed and would require the most expensive full coverage insurance. Ideally (if you live in the United States) find a three year old car that has come off a lease. A 3 year old car hits it’s sweet spot as to devaluation after a three year lease. If you can find one with high miles that can be bought at a steep discount even better. A three yr. old car will have …
