    Is that the Australian dude? Rideshare Professor? Waste of time to be honest. What’s my donation used for? If you want serious information about the rideshare industry, go to RSG.

        RP's business model is based upon driver referrals mostly, which is hurting existing drivers but he's also a fleet owner. What's your affiliation with him?

        RSG, the Rideshare Guy. Full disclosure, I write for that blog as well as Rideguru. Better information, largest weekly Podcast channel regarding the rideshare industry and the largest YouTube channel. Check it out. 

        Good luck with GOAT, he'll need it. AB5 is enough to take these companies to task, unless U/L ends up buying bunch of politicians.

          Just watch him Dustin, Mark, when really bored Kevin between rides. I thought RSG was on bored with RP. He pops in on vids and comments. Everone has an egenda. They all have their codes referral codes up. They all make money off their referral codes, You Tube videos,  etc... I dont invest money into any anything (other than the few free $ I get from you tube for chats) so no loss. Just curious to see how this all plays out. Harry did commercials for Uber who is to say he isnt on Ubers side? There is pros and cons to all these guys.

            I used to pound Harry as a commentator on his articles. Our exchanges are epic, he kicked me off his site but at the same time tried to get me to write for him for two years. He's changed his time a lot. I did a podcast last month with him and now write weekly articles, check them out. I wouldn't sell my soul for money to Harry and definitely not U/L. 

            Here's the latest one from the Lyft protest couple of days ago.

            Yeah, dime a dozen, they all are new driver aggregator sites. The only thing I know is that I'm a drivers advocate, bring on AB5.

              I want no parts of being employee. I dont want to have to maintain a certain acceptance rate nor do I want to have to take every crappy ride that pings my phone. I want to set my own hrs, go on & off the apps when I feel like it.  Minimum wage here is 7.50.

                Don't fall for U/L coercion tactics, AB5 has nothing to do with flexibility. I've read the law. I don't know how long you've been driving and what the rates are in your city but can't be much higher than L.A., 60/21. But if you like the trend and biannual rate cuts, disappearing quests, consecutive streaks, PPZ, flat rate surge, then support U/L. I've been driving both for a lot longer than I care for. Here's some numbers, when UBER x started on July 4, 2013, the rates were $5 to drop and $3.75 a mile, where are we now?

                I don't like government being involved in anything myself and don't want to be their employee but the steam roller has to be checked, if AB5 is the deterring factor, so be it. Go read about it.

                   I watch you tube videos when I am bored, in the car driving (not with passenger obviously) and to waste time. Most do it because they make money (nothing wrong with that). Others have good tips that I coukd've used when I first started. Probably made every rookie mistake out there. I manage to make it work still. Do I hate the rates, the BS that U & L both pull, are we underpaid, YES.  I personally have no control over it. CA is probably going to change rideshare for better or for worse for every city. I love driving, setting my own hours, but if things get any worse I will move on. I do not trust the government, Uber,  or Lyft to do whats right for the drivers. Again all the players have their own agenda and its not to benefit the drivers. If RP follows through and is really in for the drivers. Great. Right now I can still make money but if things get worse I go back to a healthcare job. I am waiting to see where the pieces fall.

                    I concur, have your plan B ready, it's not worth dealing with pax for 60 cents a mile. Thankfully we still have surge, not the flat rate crap. This was last night for solid 3 hours or more.

                    I used to drive full time, cherry pick surge rides all day, know all the tricks on the book. I used drive 40 plus hours a week, do about 70-80 rides, gross 2300-2500 a week by shits and giggles. Now I'm down to 10 hours a week max and that's just to write for RSG. I still average 30+ because I know my city, surge patterns by heart, it's all about positioning. I've had 20% AR since I started on both platforms. Good to talk to you, keep in touch!
