Sixteen Drivers in Brazil were murdered. Cars stolen and burned, drivers robbed. Uber finally rolled out improved identity verification services for the rider. It inky took 26 murdered Uber drivers for Travis to do something. Does the Evil Empire ever do anything good or positive? You see a few good stories about what drivers have done. Nothing but bad publicity from the company itself.https://amp-businessinsider-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/amp.businessinsider.com/uber-roulette-driver-murders-brazil-super-pumped-book-2019-8?amp_js_v=a2&_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s
https://sfist.com/2019/08/23/uber-and-lyft-driver-plan-protest-caravan-to-fight-for-employee-rights/Three days. Start in San Francisco and end in Sacremento. Wonder how Uber and Lyft will react. Probably "no comment" or media calls will not be returned. Best of luck to these 2 Groups. Hope they kick the Evil Empire's A$$! Although I am sure there will be hell to pay. Uber is all ready taken away trip info in driver app away. Lyft cutting rates. This is becoming a nightmare. I am sure their retaliation is just beginning. These "entrepreneurs" in Silicon Valley must be a bunch of self entitled, spoiked a$$ snowflakes.

No surprise here, you download their app, find a moped, unlock the helmet carrier, and your off. These mopeds can do up to 30mph and a lot nicer looking than lime green scooter or a bright blue bike or is it a lime green bike & blue scooter? Who knows there are so many. These seem like your best mode of transportation. Faster, easier, roomier, you can easily put a sm/med. bag, purse, or whatever in the helmet case. My only concern is the helmet. It was on other ...
Most of us on the forum probably remember the TRYP Influencers trying to get drivers to sign up with this new rideshare company. Most of us if not all felt this company was a scam and for good reason. I still wouldn't give them money to this day. I try to keep current with what is going on in the rideshare industry. I've seen multiple negative videos, comments, and articles about this company. The only positive was from the company itself or the "influencers". I came across a video by one the Ubertubers on You Tube, by Kevin The Apptrepreneur. ...
How's Lyft different from Phlatbed in the gig economy? One moves people, the other moves items. Perhaps the Lyft driver needs a Phlatbed driver too! When there's a constructive dialog, everybody wins. Who says we don't get along? Technology has disrupted the labor market in important ways, both enabling greater productivity from remote workers and displacing workers altogether. These technical changes, as well as demographic changes in society, have driven the growth of the Gig Economy.#phlatbed #gigeconomy #gigeconomyon-demand moving, pick-up and deliveryCheers!
However there is a catch. Drivers must purchase their own commercial insurance policy. You can purchase through Nomad at a discount. Limited cities. Only available in Bloomington Indiana.

I MESSED UP and booked my flight into PAINE FIELD instead of SEA-TAC. I need to get (party of 3 adults) from PAINE to the Seattle Ferry Terminal bound for Bremerton on a Thursday morning. I cannot make ANY sense of the public transit or ferry schedule website so I am "depending upon the kindness of strangers" to guide me through this transit process.Will Uber driver do a Paine to Ferry ride? How much does is cost?
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 ...

On the UBER platform, the driver must rate the pax when the ride ends in order to receive additional ride requests. Uber riders rate at a clip of 30-40%. Lyft allows the driver to continue driving without immediately rating the pax as the ride ends. Giving the driver the option to do so for 24 hours. Is there a direct correlation between frequency of rating by pax and tips?
I think Lyft's ratings system is head and shoulders above UBER'S. The fact that UBER is one and done without the ability to change it within 24 hours like Lyft does is terrible. Drivers are susceptible to low ratings from pax without recourse. Ratings protection as they claim is pure BS. Lyft on the other hand allows the driver to change his/her rating for the pax for 24 hours with an automatic default to 5* is very fair.
Perfect example of politicians being as bad as Uber and Lyft. Apparently the didnt allow Uber & Lyft until 2018. I guess once the city found a way to make money off of it they allowed the rideshare companies in. Wonder what their rates are? Everyone trying to make a buck off the drivers. https://www-kezi-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.kezi.com/templates/AMP?contentID=557760661&_js_v=a2&_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.kezi.com%2Fcontent%2Fnews%2FRideshare-registrations--557760661.html
