    So many drivers complain about how they aren’t getting paid enough, then, when they hear about the ads on the rooftop, they get pissed off. 

    Uber is still not profitable and drivers are hurting from falling wages. We should be welcoming of innovative ways to make this business model work. 

    I’m all for this. I will drive for FireFly when you make it to DC/Baltimore at some point.

      Well said our model is to help rideshare drivers earn more as Uber is not doing anything to benefit the drivers income, anyone with a car can become a Uber and Lyft driver but the it floods the streets wth more rideshare meaning everyone will be making less. We will soon be in DC. If you know anyone in Dallas tell them to download the Firefly Driver App.

        Jonathan, why won't you answer my question above? It's a concern for many drivers if FF gets banned in Los Angeles is San Francisco.

    Does anyone even remember that tv show FireFly?  It had a cult following back in the day but it got cancelled due to... well, having a crappy show.

      😆 That's a month. 160 hours a month driving for $200, make your private vehicle look like a cab. It used to be more money, like all start-ups, high pay first then dwindle to nothing.

          I know how much advertising costs.  You're probably charging advertisers a hefty price for local advertising, but paying drivers a touch over a dollar an hour to drive around with that huge sign on their car.  (AND decreasing their gas mileage through additional vehicle weight and drag/wind resistance)  

          Just another money making scheme targeting ignorant rideshare drivers.  No thanks.

            Drivers and rideshare companies should be working together. When they work these out with advertisers, drivers should consider that as a win. More money coming into this space, more drivers will win. 

            We want the industry to succeed...as much as we all hate Uber

              Rideshare companies need to go back to the basics and figure out how to run a business successfully.  There's no need for huge, obnoxious billboards on our cars, and if you want to be fair, you need to pay drivers a real PERCENTAGE of the net advertising proceeds rather than a "do 40 runs a week for $51" gimmick.  What you're doing is no different than how Uber and Lyft rake drivers over the coals while trying to spin it as a "win" for drivers.  

              Your billboard may sit on our cars 40+ hrs a week, but reality says that for many/most drivers, removing it will be difficult/impossible, which turns their cars into 24/7/365 advertising platforms.  That considered, you're actually paying $200 to advertise an average of approx 727 Hours, or $0.275 per hour to convert our personal vehicles into permanent billboards.

              Some of us see through your scam, and it disgusts me more than what Uber/Lyft do because your "solution" is on all the time.  You claim to hate Uber, but let's face it, what you're doing is worse.

                Just for the record, I don't work for them and I don't drive for them.  LOL. 

                You do have a good point about how they need to figure this out. The taxi industry has existed all along and were profitable, or at least sustainable. What is happening now? Spending way too much on marketing and R&D.

                If the R&D and software writing is too expensive, this is really a flaw in the business.  Software is supposed to make businesses scalable and more efficient. If it's not doing that, what's the point of the cost.

                If the marketing is too much, well, then it's meant to fail.  Unnecessary competition and unnecessary marketing expenses.  The money from the transportation industry is being diverted to the media/marketing companies. 

                I am all for innovation and unregulated market (ah...capitalism), but regulations aren't bad when it comes to daily needs of the general public...you know like mass transportation.

                  Taking money from the necessary living expenses is the goal of large corporations. They want it to be less regulated, and they get richer by taking money from the general public.  That's the model for the riches to get richer.

                  All the businesses Uber claims to disrupt support razor thin margins. They will not make money unless they raise their prices substantially. Here's my take.

          Are you an employee of FF? If so, can you address many concerns drivers who use your services have regarding cities starting to pass regulations banning these boards? Hope your margins are better than U/L.

    They're disallowing them in some cities like NY, SF possibly in LA, what's being done about that? I'm the senior contributor for RSG.

    The cities OP has mentioned are either working on regulations to tax FF boards or outright ban them. This could be DOA unless they take the Uber route. My concern is why wouldn't UBER and Lyft pay their drivers enough for them not to resort to turning their private cars into moving billboards via FF or 7-11s via Cargo. If you choose to put an FF Billboard on your car, you better make sure your car inspection is not coming up soon since U/L won't allow them to pass an inspection with them installed on the roof.
