    Garcetti: Delivery, taxi & rideshare workers, without symptoms, eligible for coronavirus tests

    “Such workers will need to inquire with their supervisors about the testing.” Where exactly do Uber drivers find their “supervisor”?

    How do you quit Uber? Simply stop driving or somehow make it formal?

    This looks like the approach I will take. The only concern is if I get into an accident, my insurance company might think I was driving for Uber since I’d be technically on the books. Has anyone been in that situation of making a non-Uber-related claim and having to prove you weren’t...

    How do you quit Uber? Simply stop driving or somehow make it formal?

    Haven't driven since last November. The vehicle inspection is past due and my drivers license in the system expires soon. I've not bothered updating either (my license is renewed but I haven't bothered informing Uber). Due to these lack of updates my account is suspended and I'm not going to...

    Destination Filter search broken?

    I see now that re-editing the "home" button does in fact fill locations in. Thank you. While it's a relief there's a workaround, this is more busy work with an additional step as many of us constantly switch the destination address, like if we're going from our home to LAX and want to make...

    Destination Filter search broken?

    Tried a clean restart. I even deleted and re-downloaded the app. I had called the Uber help line and they said this was reported by one other user and they are “looking into it.“. That was two days ago.

    Destination Filter search broken?

    Still not working. Am I really the only driver with this issue?

    Destination Filter search broken?

    All day long when I click the magnifying glass icon for the destination filter search and attempt to enter a destination, nothing happens and it just hangs with that dash moving back and forth causing the DF to be useless. Example of typing "LAX" screenshot attached. Everything else in the...

    Uber server issues anyone?

    Having the same “Getting account ready” readout and “ unable to go online” message. Additionally, when I click “Account” it now claims my car is a Camry. I drive a Prius as I always had for Uber. But the license plate number displayed next to “Camry” is correct.

    Vehicle inspections at select Jiffy Lube and Sprints stores covered by Uber or not?

    The Uber Vehicle Inspection page at the Los Angeles Vehicle Inspection Page states: "Uber partners with selected Jiffy Lube and Sprint stores in Los Angeles to cover 100% of annual inspection costs." However every Jiffy Lube I've called says Uber does not cover any of the annual inspection...

    set your next destination tomorrow

    Dumb question. Is the DF limited to 2 again? In August we got an email saying, "With 6 Driver Destinations per day, up from 2, you can earn on your way to the places you want to be throughout the day." Have they reneged on this and are back down to 2 or is displaying "2" simply a display...

    Uber eliminated "arrive by" in destination filter?

    Restarted and it's there now. Damn this app is fickle! Didn't mean to imply the arrival time feature solves all the problems. I'm still sent backtracking or in out-of-the-way directions, either for pick-ups or drop-offs. I'd rather the DF either match me with riders only on my way or not at...

    Uber eliminated "arrive by" in destination filter?

    The destination filter is crap. It frequently has you zig-zag back on forth on multiple $2.80 rides for an hour when it would only take you 20 minutes to get to your destination had you just drove straight there. But recently they added the "arrive by" function and let you choose what time you...

    Possible LAPD Sting at Universal Metro Station

    That's why I'm leaning towards sting. This was a 20-something millennial guy, not grandpa trying to use a hand-phone-thingy. Just by the demographic he was probably 1000 times more tech-savvy than me and would know how to use the Uber app.

    Possible LAPD Sting at Universal Metro Station

    Can't say for certain but this had all the telltale signs of a BS sting. At about 6pm I was dropping off a rider at the Universal Metro Red Line Station. The rider asked me to drop her off on the street outside the station where there were at least two Ubers dropping off or picking up their...
