It is great that Uber and Lyft are helping people get to the voting booth, but it would be nice to have some clarity to ensure everyone is in the know on what is to be expected..
1) Is the ride to the voting location one way?
If not, are the drivers expected to wait for a long time? Drivers dont make much when not moving... being asked to wait an hour for less than $3-$4 is unfair.
2) Will the riders be CLEARLY informed of these parameters? (Riders often get a 1 when the passengers are upset, even when the reason is not driver related. These ratings stick and are impossible to get retracted.)
3) Will voters get a free return trip home? (...and will it also be explained that it is a trip home and not a shopping spree?)
It may seem cold, but these questions have to be asked. It is great that we can be patriotic and help people vote, but it should not be at the expense of our reputations, the mercy of the unreasonable, or the opportunity expense or food taken out of the mouths of our children.
I would just appreciate some clarity and a heads up to the passengers.
That is not to much to ask, is it?
