Why don't you see more female Uber and Lyft drivers and how would you encourage more women to become one?

    Someone should put together a female driver starter kit.  Taser, glass divider, mace, dashcam, whistle, ...

      It's kind of sad the list of things they have to carry just to do the job.

    Make glass dividers more accessible to consumers.  Oooh, if I made one, would you buy it?

        because we use our own cars.  cars that we'd like to use for personal purposes and don't want some ugly divider. :)

      That's a pretty good idea.  If you can come up with an affordable solution, you may have a good business on hand

    Why Force things.  WHY does everything have to be equal in numbers.  Why do less women pee standing up...  I mean give me a break.  Women fight in wars alongside men.  If women want to do rideshare then they will.    Why would anyone want to rideshare at this time.  Uber is stingier than ever.  They keep finding ways to separate the drivers from their money.  Be it renting cars at prices that require working 40 hours a week to pay for with nothing to show for it as in partial ownership.  They have reduced surges.  They announce opportunities as simply events with no incentives to drive in traffic to work them.  (why leave home to sit in traffic for one ride for $8 that requires an hours drive.=?)   There is little incentive to pick up people at night as the surges are gone and we have to deal with so many trashed, inconsiderate... no  aggressively rude people...  some violent, most could not care the sligh…

    ****Anyway, if you want to make it safer for ALL DRIVERS then ONLY accept riders that have a working credit card, an ID on record, and a FRIGGING WORKING PHONE NUMBER!!!!   I AM SO SICK of calling people and their phone is not set up.  HOW DANGEROUS IS THAT?   you pick up someone and there is really no way of knowing if it is who they say it is???  hmm, is it really Jman???    PB&J???    Women are totally capable of most anything a man can do.  NOT ALL.  Visa versa the same about men.  The Job is the Job.  My advice is do not do rideshare if you do not have to.  Get a real job and enjoy life.  It is not for everyone.   It is not safe.  If a wreckless driver does not clip you, or a customer assault you  (which happens more than you would think... sexually, physically, and mentally.) or you worry yourself to death about bad things happening.. or get tired of ride offers that are less than $12 an hour (and I do mean gross - before expenses)  (like $3.84 for a 25 minute ride with multiple stops... only it will be more than 25 mins with a long pickup... )  Well.... you get it... or are you just thick headed?  (not to mention the ability to go offline being removed when you need it.)


    WHO ever said there needs to be an 50-50 spread of women-men anyway???
