I am thinking about signing for Uber but I'd like to try out the food deliveries instead of passengers, i.e. UberX. Is there a way to do that?
and in case you are wondering, nah, I don't feel like dealing with people. I hear too many scary stories. Plus, I live in an area that has many restaurants, and I feel like I will be able to make good money.
Even calling into a customer service call (at a bank or whatever), we have the choice of asking not to be recorded. What about with rideshares like Uber and Lyft?
I understand that the car is a private property, and drivers have the rights to record inside their cabin. However, do I have the right to not be recorded upon request?
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 figured this would be the case. With the introduction of upfront pricing, Uber can charge customers anything they want. They will ask for any amount riders are willing to pay. I have heard cases where during the hours when the business users are out, the overall fare goes up. Trips to and from airports? You guessed it. It'll go up because people are willing to pay.
All the cheap Uber fares that we have gotten accustomed to are about to go out the window. Regulators and law makers who shoved the taxis out. Are you happy now? What about ...
This Uber driver claimes that this Phoenix school called his Uber and tried to put 8 little kids in his car to transport! Unreal, even schools are trying to cut costs with Uber.
This is pre-covid, but gosh, this is sort of article that sets the wrong expectation for new drivers and the public. Everyone thinks us drivers are swimming in money.$6000 x 12 = $72,000. Working six days a week. It's super misleading though, because it requires long hours (11 hours on weekdays and 8+ hours on Saturdays) and it doesn't consider for expenses.https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/30/a-day-in-the-life-of-a-full-time-uber-lyft-and-juno-driver-in-nyc.html
Uber Drivers: How Far Will You Drive To Pick-Up A Fare Without Knowing Their Destination? Okay, here’s what happened today to me - I signed on to my Driver Uber App and a Premium Destination popped up. I accepted the pick-up and app informed me that the customer was 27 minutes and 13 miles away. I drove there , it took about 22 minutes. I picked up client at her house , pressed my App for the drop-off Destination , and saw that drop-off was 1 mile away. I chatted with the lady, dropped her off and headed back to ...
anyone? I have had requests with 4 passengers and when I arrive and turn them down because I don't want riders up front with me right now due to covid they get all pissy and say that other drivers are cool with it. Curious which way people lean on this issue. Are we letting passengers up front or no?
This week I was three weeks from my two year anniversary with Uber. I have a 4.94 rating (490 5 star, 4 4 star, 6 1 star) and I have done over 4800 rides. I have had no accidents, only one ticket over a year and a half ago and it was my word against the officers (yellow light/officer said red). I never cancel on riders other than no-shows or extreme conditions such as the car breaking down. I almost always beat the time given on the app - I never pause when going to get a passenger. I felt ...
The Council on Thursday will vote on a bill to establish a new “Office of Financial Stability” within the TLC designed to keep tabs on the health of the city’s crumbling yellow cab industry. Bronx Councilman Ritchie Torres, the bill’s sponsor, said he wanted to prevent a repeat of history when the city sold medallions or approved medallion sales at prices of $1 million and more. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-tlc-taxi-medallion-oversight-20201015-2pyve3pmfreuvfsii6mpjh43ta-story.html
Uber can charge whatever they want now. Basically, Uber charges whatever the rider is willing to pay. It isn't based on time and distance anymore. I kept wondering why my Uber prices fluctuate even for the same trips. At first I thought it was the infamous "surge pricing", but I started to wonder why sometimes it warns you of surge and sometimes it doesn't. Well, it turns out that Uber in most markets can charge whatever they want now. Uber has officially but quietly updated their pricing policy to state exactly this.What is "willing to pay" mean? They look ...
