I know in the Uber videos they show drivers wearing a suit and tie, but that seems more like an Uber Black/SUV thing. Personally I don't wear a suit unless someone's getting married, or put in the ground. In any case you want to be comfortable while driving without looking like a slob.
I tend to wear a clean pair of jeans with a fifties style button up shirt. What do you guys and gals wear while driving?
I like it when passengers sit in the front seat. They are friendlier, talk more often and usually rate 5 stars. I do hint that it's ok to sit in front by removing my bag from the front seat before the passenger gets in. And every time I get 3 passengers, I say that one can sit up front.
I like when I get airport rides, because then I have a good reason to require the passenger sit in front.

http://www.local10.com/news/um-doctor-caught-on-camera-in-druken-uber-rage Happened in Miami Fl. This Uber driver deserves a medal for putting up with some random drunk that apparently thought he was her ride. She jumped in the back while he had passengers. When he told her he's not her ride she refused to take no for an answer confronting the driver and you can see where it goes from there.

Beginning today, the next time you log onto the Uber app, you will receive a pop-up notification about a new driver-partner agreement. You will be prompted to accept the new agreement before you can continue to go online and begin accepting trips. However, you have the option to opt-out of certain provisions after accepting the agreement, as explained further in the agreement itself. This agreement governs your relationship with Rasier, so it is important that you read it.
This agreement has an updated arbitration provision, among other changes and updates.
We have provided a link to a copy of the agreement below for you to view.
Kzoo police ID suspect in deadly random shootings
TEXAS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Six people are dead and two seriously wounded after a shooter opened fire at three different locations in the Kalamazoo area over the course of nearly five hours Saturday night.
Michigan State Police on Sunday identified the four victims killed at one of the crime scenes, the Cracker Barrel restaurant in Texas Township, as:
- Mary Lou Nye, 63, of Baroda, Mich.
- Mary Jo Nye, 60, of Battle Creek
- Dorothy Brown, 74, of Battle Creek
- Barbara Hawthorne, 68, of Battle Creek
Late night riders have been telling me the driver has been accepting the ping, calling them, asking where they are going and then cancelling the ride if they don't like it. There are at most 1 or 2 other drivers in the area when I am rolling so I think it's the same one. F him, if I can roll the dice so can he. Last night's event turned out to be a good fare, and it left me in a place where I got a $90 fare next. This is a slow period in the area, school is out and summer travel hasn't started yet and last night I went 2 hours without a fare, I'm either taking what I can get or staying home. Can't believe somebody can not be deactivated for too much of that.
Of course, I did my part to F him by telling the passenger to lie to the driver next time, look at the map and tell him you are going back to where he is, or I gave him a list of other places to tell the driver he is going to ensure he will come out. "Hey, my friend called and told me he wasn't going to be there, so I decided...
Hi I've been driving uber for 2 years. I started out as an SUV driver now I drive Uberx. These new rates are directly affecting us and costing us more when we've already invested enough.
On the forums you hear most uber drivers are stupid and dumb, and would work against us in a strike. I was there when uber backed down to NYC SUV drivers. We only need a few good men. A few of us can make a huge difference.
If you're focused on failure you will fail, but as of now I am committed to striking against uber on a specified date and if you want to help organizing with me write me a message.
PAX: So, are you from around here?
Driver: No, I flew in from my beach home in Jamaica to drive you around for $0.75/mi.
First a little intro:
I've been a full time Lyft/Uber driver for 9 months in Phoenix Arizona. In that time, I've completed over 3300 rides, over 300 cancellations, and averaged anywhere from $15-$25 an hour each week. I've also gone through two rate cuts on Uber, as well as an incentive cut on Lyft. Over time, I've developed ways to fight back against Uber's cuts and lies, and would like to share my techniques with you. I realize that many of you are already doing some of these things, however, I would like to share these in a cohesive and systematic way, so that we can work together to fight back and stand up to Uber's lies and tyranny.
The most obvious way to fight back is not to drive for Uber at all. I know that many of you have either started to focus on Lyft more, or perhaps other platforms, or have quit entirely. Some of you only drive during surges. These are effective methods for an individual, however, we all know that Uber still banks on a steady stream...
Some recent posts on a popular travel forum. This is exactly why I have said drivers putting up tip signs are just asking for 1-star ratings, or for passengers to contact Uber to report you.
Today, I got into an UberX in the Los Angeles area and the driver had sign on the back of the front passenger seat of his car soliciting tips. I regret not taking a picture of the sign because in my 200+ rides this is the first time I have ever experienced just aggressive tip solicitation. The driver had a 4.7 rating.
He spent most of ride telling me about how awful Uber is to drivers and how they have cut fares by 43% in the area and how he relies on tips just to get by. It was the most awkward Uber ride I have ever had. I did not give the guy a tip.
Post #2 (in reply to #1):
I would absolutely 1-star that ride....
This may have been addressed in a previous thread already, but I'm really looking for advice.
I was in an accident during a Lyft ride yesterday where a teenager who didn't know how to drive in SF tried making an illegal u-turn in front of me without looking for oncoming traffic in the opposite direction (I was already in the intersection when he began his u-turn), and we of course collided. He was completely at fault, and admitted he was at fault in front of the police officers while they were filing the report. The police did mention to me that my car was most likely going to be totaled (I had a 2012 VW GTI that was in perfect condition, and only had 58,000 miles on it), but the repair shop I had it towed to said they'd be able to repair it.
My personal insurance won't have anything to do with it since I had two Lyft passengers in my car at the time, so I'm having to rely on Lyft's insurance.
I'm wondering if anyone was in a similar situation and what the outcome was. Lyft is...

SAN FRANCISCO — Uber has long been embroiled in a debate over the status of its drivers: Should they be independent contractors or full-time employees?
Uber says that as independent contractors, its drivers get flexibility. Their freelancer status also lets the company sidestep the costs of full-time employees, including paying minimum wage and the employers’ share of Social Security. But labor groups and lawyers have argued that Uber drivers should be classified as employees to receive worker protections.
On Thursday, Uber moved a step closer to getting its way. The company reached a settlement in a pair of class-action lawsuits in...
Here's my experience from using uber.....
#1 ordered a uber, received an alert that the driver is 10 mins away. Fine, I wait about 4-5 minutes and receive a call from the driver asking me to cancel because he's too far and traffic is really bad at 8PM at night. Okay fine, I'll just request another driver...
#2 ordered a uber, driver accepts and she's less than 7 minutes away. Five minutes in I decided to wait by the front door for her arrival. Only to receive a call from her saying she ran out of gas, so cancel the trip.
Now I am pissed and just decided against drinks tonight and just drive my car instead.
Ordered a uber driver, he accepted and started going the opposite way, I call him and received no answer. I noticed about 3-4 minutes later that he canceled the trip.
Valentines day I ordered a uber for my mom. I reserved a nice spa for her, she lives a few towns over so I requested a uber for her. I called the driver to let her know it will be my mom...
Is it possible that Uber is running out of money? I know valuation figures of 60 billion have been thrown around and that sounds like they are really rolling in the dough.
Because Uber is a private company, no one has access to their actual accounting figures, financial statements and bank account balances.
It is possible that the reason Uber dropped the rates is because they need to generate a lot of cash quickly?
Remember the more rides that Uber gets--the more money that Uber makes. They make the SRF on every fare no matter how little the fare is.
I can't think of another reason Uber would make such a bone headed move and drop fares below the cost to provide the service.
Do you think Uber is low on money?
Uber raised investment money in August 2015 and again in October 2o15. The last investment money came from Microsoft.
Uber seems to be running out of institutional investors. Now Uber is targeting high net worth individuals though Morgan Stanley and Merrill...
