This is for the drivers. Do you guys mind picking me up, and then picking up someone else up, it it meant you had to wait a few minutes? Think the scenario. I have a date, and I want to pick her up. I want to arrive on an Uber, go to her door (I am a gentleman), and walk her back to the car.
Are drivers annoyed by this? I am not saying I will wait 20 minutes for her to get ready. I just will be leaving the car to go get her. 5 minutes, maybe 10 minutes ...
ZipCar, Uber, and other rideshare companies want to make it illegal to own your own self-driving car in the city.
Hello,I'm a frequent Uber rider in the Tucson, AZ area. I use the service several times per month (worldwide), and have for a few years. I love the service overall. I'm also 100% Uber - I haven't used Lyft to date.When the app started making rider ratings viewable to the rider, I recall being in the 4.94-4.96 range. I was happy about this, and wanted to try to do even better! I read all the tips on the Uber app and several forums with driver perspectives and feedback. I always meet the driver (she/he never has to wait ...

Before I wrote a book or even a blog entry about my cabbie days, I made a 'zine called Hack. Named after the hackney carriage license which taxi drivers were required to get to drive in Boston, I put together two issues, cut-and-pasting them at Kinko's in 2001. You can read a digital version right here.
Personaly i haven't driven since the Pandemic started as Uber/Lyfting is a sideline occupation for me. And from looking at the maps, it seems that a lot of you have assumed a comfortable position on your sofa as well. However, there are plenty that are still forced (or want) to drive during this time of perilous exposure, and I'm wondering what precautions you have taken (if any) to help protect yourself as well as your passengers from possible exposure to Corona?

Well, ladies and gentlemen, our happy(?) times with Uber are coming to an end.
I'd like to find all those helpful Drivers who worked on the New App and ask them some pointed questions....
This weekend, I think I've seen the future.
1. All the bonus areas that were always present on a weekend, changing every hour to get cars to different areas, are gone. GONE. They would range from a 1.1 (10%) to a 2.0 (double) as the bars emptied and every Uber on the road was needed. GONE. They have been replaced by the Consecutive Ride Program where, ...
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 ...

Is there a small talk conversation topic that drives you crazy?Let me know and your response could be used in our story!
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 ...
How is this legal? Oh, it isn't? What's new.
What is the current situation with Uber in London? Taxi app won’t be stopped any time soon
It is now over two months since Uber’s license to operate in London came to an end, and yet the taxi company is still running as normal in the UK’s capital. Uber was stripped of its operating license on September 30, but they were certainly not going to give up without a fight and have continued to operate ever since.
