After 50 Uber rides, I finally ran into an Uber driver who had a sundry shop open in his car. He sold water, gum, mints, head phones, charging cables, bags of chips, red bull, chapsticks, etc. etc.
I asked the driver and he told he can do whatever he wants because he is an independent and the products have nothing to do with Uber, the company. I don't know the legality of opening up a store in the back of a Toyota Camry, but with all legal stuff aside, what are other ways drivers make money? What are cool things ...
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?
Drivers are seeing more fake names coming up on rider accounts. A few names have been [email protected] Swallower, Satan, Killer, the boss, the man Little M, F, M, TotheWindow, Captain America and many more. Drivers are not accepting your request or are cancelling your trip. Drivers are not safe as it is out there. You can sign up with an Uber gift card, a Visa gift card, and then put any name you want. Many drivers will not accept your request or they will cancel on you. If you have a fake name be prepared to possibly have longer wait, ...
Last couple days have taken riders to/from dealerships. Take your car in for repairs, maybe they have a courtesy driver take you home, then maybe take you back later. My guess is dealers now transitioning to order Uber to do this. Your thoughts?

Both Uber and Lyft have platforms to report these issues and promise to work with law enforcement. CBS Chicago interviewed us the other to talk about it. Basically it comes down to:Take pics of the substancesSubmit a request immediatelyGo to the Uber or Lyft hub for a follow-up. If you don't hear back, be persistent. At the very least they should offer a "cleanup" fee if the substances are on ...
Where did the kindler gentler company go? They won’t allow driver’s earn a living unless they abide by strict guidelines. I thought we were all IC!
Please do share. Remember when some dude died after getting kicked off Lyft? I can't help it to think he did something to be kicked out, you know?

I heard from my nephew that Uber drives are sometimes so desperate to make money that they would randomly charge cleaning fees for no reason whatsoever. Is this true? What can I do to stop it or make sure it doesn't happen.

Some of this all media. They know readers love this headline right now. We all love the tragedy and disasters, especially when it's about the evil empire.So Uber is effectively a middleman for a money transfer from venture-capital (VC) firms to consumers. It takes a loss on every ride, subsidized by a massive valuation that looks increasingly like a fairy tale.Some reply that Uber will be fine; it just needs to hold out until the coming introduction of self-driving cars. But that just makes this a race against time: Mandates on disability compensation, minimum wage, and overtime could ...
