This Uber driver claimes that this Phoenix school called his Uber and tried to put 8 little kids in his car to transport! Unreal, even schools are trying to cut costs with Uber.

    I completely agree with you. It is normal when taxis pick up students. When I needed to get a job in a taxi service, I had to use the residency personal statement writing service But as my cousin told me, everything is much easier with Uber. In addition, I like the application, which itself chooses the shortest route, which allows you to save fuel.

    This is good for uber. But I'm not going to school, I'm just taking programming classes as I'm in California Medical College and I'm also using the best essay writing services https://www.bestessay.com/write-my-research-paper/  This resource was recommended to me by a friend from another medical college. I think a lot and do little from here, and as a result I have to order homework writing services

    It was 3 years ago but I want to comment on it. In my opinion, such schools must be punished. If I heard from my little daughter about that I would take action. Kids must study and GO to study in comfortable conditions. They have such great sources as https://paperap.com/how-to-start-an-essay/ to get help with some of their writing tasks, but the schools can't ensure adequate conditions of transport for children. I hope it was just one incident.

      Just shows how cheap Uber is if schools think it is cheaper than owning school busses

    I see so many issues with this. For example, how would it known when all the children have boarded and have been seated?  What if there was an injury as the kid climbs on the bus? 

    What if a predator gets on the bus and hijacks it? 

    Kids need supervision.  School drivers do so much more than just "drive."

    Uber Freight can be used for school buses, sure.

    This may actually not be a bad idea, as the school buses take very specific routes every day on a schedule.

      Oh you are talking about Uber's logic driving the school buses?  I think the article is talking about just using regular UberXs.

    The Uber and Lyft policy is that persons under 18 must be accompanied by someone over 17.

    In Chicago, New York City, and Washingtonm D.C. where VIA operates, their policy is persons from 13 to 17 must have a parents or guardians permission to ride.

    I have actually had parents call for rideshare for their children who missed the bus!  Most of them have been highschool seniors not elementary children.  I have had one parent call a rideshare to take a sick child home from school.  This child was 6th grade according to the school nurse.  I told the school nurse that an adult had to accompany the child to her home - and I would be glad to bring the supervising adult back to the school.  So, the school nurse grudgingly came along for the ride.  I drive for Lyft and Uber and these issues are occurring in Pittsburgh, PA.  Jill SM
