This option started showing up for me late 2020. It may have been there for longer but I never saw it before. I honestly am not sure what to make of this because I never really know how much I am willing to wait. I mean, has there been some expectation before as to how quickly a driver is supposed to show up? Some kind of an SLA? I don't remember there being any. 10 minutes? 20 minutes? Is there some kind of threshold as to when something becomes a wait & save? It feels pretty obscure to me and …
Hello!I really wish to get some help here!!The problem is, my husband is a rideshare driver in Boston Massachusetts, and honestly since he started working as a rideshare our marriage is going down hill and honestly I can see our marriage getting to an end. I’ll explain!He drives way too long hours, of course because we need the money and I do work as well, but with 2 kids we need to work hard.The thing is, I think that he cheats on me..and that makes me think that every single woman that gets in his car …

This seems like a pretty significant news on how the travel websites are starting to invest in rideshare companies... and it isn't with the American Uber.
Priceline will work closely with Didi to offer its on-demand car services through its Booking.com apps, and Didi customers will have the option to book hotels through Booking.com and its sister site Agoda. Booking also operates Kayak, Priceline.com, Rentacars.com and OpenTable, which makes it a powerful ally for Didi, which is in global expansion mode.
We find such gold in Uber Support twitter. Here's someone who complained about differing pricing between two Uber users. This has been a common thread recently, where Uber's dynamic pricing is basically charging whatever they want to, likely based on factors we weren't aware before: (e.g. The more you use Uber, the more expensive it gets , Uber fare different for same location, same route, same time, and no surge)Well, check out this person who complained about differing prices. Look at Uber's response:
The new driver app is out! What do y'all think of it? I've heard some complaints that it's harder to switch between Uber and Lyft with it and complaints that it's harder to find your earnings. Thoughts?
Hey All,Looking for some honest feedback from rideshare drivers. We make in-car vending machines - our vending machines are completely self-service so you don't have to hand products to passengers. Passengers scan a QR code, select the items they want in our app, the sections with the items open up and the customer is charged for products the select. We were wondering which business model will appeal to rideshare drivers and will appreciate your feedback. We also understand that not all Uber/Lyft drivers like to sell products in their car and that is totally fine - we are seeking …
I'm just curious what drivers think about this, and if making out in the backseat of an Uber would make my passenger rating go down. Nothing crazy happening but I'm just curious what people's opinions are on this.
I was thinking about driving for an Uber so I asked a driver of my intentions. I told him I'd like to do 9-5, and he laughed, laughed, and laughed, and finished his laugh torrent saying, "That'd never work. Stupid idea."
I laughed along, but didn't really know what was so funny. I assume he was referring to how I may be missing the crazy busy times like Saturday nights, but I feel like 8-hour days for 5 days a week will be adequate in making decent money.
Am I wrong? Is there something I don't know? Do drivers not …
Over the years I have had numerous incidents of being hit by other cars periodically. When I drove a taxi it was something the company took care of as there was never an incident where I was found to be at fault. The only time I ever actually hit a person was one night in the Haight Ashberry neighborhood, carrying a passenger, who yelled, before I saw a man on a bicycle cruise in front of me into an intersection. I hit the man square on, he flew high in the intersection and both bike and man came down hard. …
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
Has anyone ever had ride from Driver Ed in Philadelphia? A young guy drives for Uber in Philadelphia he plays an instrumental version of some well known songs. Catch is he provides no words. Passengers sing along and if they dont know the words they are encouraged to make them up. With their permission he post the video. Good Day Philadelphia tv show hosts took a ride with him and tried to sing a few songs. It's a good thing they dont need to sing for a living lol. Some riders are drunk some are not but they all look …
Awesome. What time to be alive. Cell phones hanging from trees.Someone places several devices in a tree located close to the station where deliveries originate. Drivers in on the plot then sync their own phones with the ones in the tree and wait nearby for an order pickup. The reason for the odd placement, according to experts and people with direct knowledge of Amazon’s operations, is to take advantage of the handsets’ proximity to the station, combined with software that constantly monitors Amazon’s dispatch network, to get a split-second jump on competing drivers.https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-09-01/amazon-drivers-are-hanging-smartphones-in-trees-to-get-more-work

I am disappointed in what I have seen in terms of the quality of people who use ride share transportation. Dishonesty, disrespect and unwilling to tip. 25% of the ridership is GREAT. The rest is so so. You can't serve this public, without holding your nose. It is sad.
