    Taxi business might go out of business?

    Pick up a rider the other day said the taxi wouldn't take him because the fare wasn't worth his time and losing his spot in the rank. Don't blame the taxi driver for rejecting trips that are unprofitable especially if he been sitting in the rank for half the day. Got to wait for that big fish.

    84 hour challenge !!?

    Used to do 12 hour days in a truck. Most won't really understand what fatigue even is driving around passenger vehicle. Only advice I got to the OP is do 5 days of 12 hour days see where you are over a month and increase that to seven days. Probably do 16 hours x 6 days with multiple platform...

    DiDi launches in Brisbane. Uber on the backfoot

    Had a pretty bad run 3 riders about 10km and probably 15 minutes got paid just over $13. May have been a buck or two more than standard Uberx but you are picking up 3 riders separate riders. Would rather much prefer just picking up the 1 rider and doing 10km.

    DiDi launches in Brisbane. Uber on the backfoot

    From what I've been reading in Melb threads Didi is worst then Ola. Seemed to be Uber > Ola > Didi > Bolt for majority of drivers. I still have preference Ola > Uber especially with pool rider out now days. Despite them stealing some trips and it stupid invoice requirement for cleaning fees.

    wrongly accused by ""pet" owner of not taking a service dog, now account suspended for investigation

    You be back driving within 48 hours while they do an "Investigation." Probably get a first and final warning to take pets in the future or else be deactivation with no recourse. At this stage I take any kind of furry critter so the riders can't make up some BS story or may in actual fact be a...

    Vent Mount

    I got a few of these even as they are rock solid. I do use a windscreen mount as well. Good thing about this mount is even if the car rolls over the phone will still be stuck in place. Have it hundreds of bumps overtime and it never moves. Cost a little bit more then the cheap crap but you get...

    Sad News... Apollo Has Passed Away

    NW this is a low blow even for you mate. In reality @Apollo probably just having some time off this forum. He was never the same after George retired on this forum. He most likely just got bored and made a quiet exit off the forums.

    New York Rules - min wage for RS

    Cost something like $3000 US in city fees to operate a rideshare vehicle in NYC. Given that the city has a lot of $$$ to go toe to toe against Uber with the tens of thousands of rideshare driver paying every year. Uber wouldn't leave NYC since it such a big market place and kind of like a hub...

    Requests showing length and direction not working

    Won't ever get it as acceptance rating is around 60% and cancellation rating closer to 10%. I make a lot more $$$ doing it the old fashion way of not seeing destination anyways. A good driver will have acceptance rating of around 50%-80% and cancellation rating of around 5%-15%. Danger...
