Can my girlfriend (spouse, friend, etc.) ride along with me on a Uber shift?

    I once saw a woman driver with two kids bouncing around in the SUV waiting for a pickup at the airport.

      Maybe they were passengers. lol

      You know...I totally believe it though. People treat Uber like it's something you do to make extra cash in  your free time and merge it into your life. I can see how a mom with kids, looking for income, would want to do that.

      When I think back at the true (original?) spirit rideshares, I start to think perhaps we should embrace those (even with kids) who are just trying to contribute and give people rides to the airport.

      I mean, we have all done that for friends and such.  If my buddy was driving me to the airport and had his kid in the car, I'd totally be okay with it.

    For what it's worth, I have totally run into taxi drivers (not Uber) who had their girlfriends and wives tag along. I asked about it and they were like, "he is on the road all the time, so this is the ony way we can spend time with each other.
