    Driver busted for phone use at traffic light

    Not to mention, it’s not Uber’s / Lyfts’s interest for their drivers to be racking up demerit points because of cell phone use. They might find themselves with fewer drivers willing to take the risk of driving for them. Also, integrating the driver app into CarPlay will look a lot more...

    How much do you think the rate per KM should be?

    From the city of Toronto website. For taxi fares. This works out to $1.75 per kilometre and about $.50 per minute. I think we should be charging at least 75% of that 1- 4 Passengers: For the first 0.143 km or part thereof: $3.25 For each additional 0.143 km or part thereof: $0.25 For waiting...

    The financial news know one wants to talk about.

    There is only one reason why bank loans would actually have negative payback interest rates: DEFLATION! Deflation is what happens the economy is so lacklustre, that merchants are actually lowering prices to entice consumers to open up their wallets. And a danger with deflation is that...

    Driver busted for phone use at traffic light

    But even if your car does have Apple / Android play, neither the Lyft, nor Uber app is compatible with it. If either company had any sense of priority, they would be working to make the driver app compatible with that as soon as possible; by yesterday if possible

    AB5 HAS PASSED

    In non rideshare gig apps like task rabbit and airBnB, that’s the normal practice. Uber will have a hard time convincing a judge that we’re not employees if the price we charge for our services is completely out of our hands.

    Driver busted for phone use at traffic light

    Interestingly, the law exempts the use of ANALOG type devices like 2-way radios. Every school bus in my employer’s fleet is equipped with a 2-way radio and I don’t have to worry about being charged when handling the radios microphone while driving Taxi and other commercial vehicle drivers that...

    What's the best lie a pax has ever told you and why.

    Bullshit like this confirms that I made a wise decision NOT to buy a newer car to continue driving for Uber

    The police even ride in TTC buses and call in any driver they see using it. #CashGrab

    What's the best lie a pax has ever told you and why.

    It is aptly said, that a person’s true character can be judged by the way they treat those who can do nothing for them in return. I would have respected them allot more if they had promised me nothing at all.

    What if? (Assembly Bill 5 in Toronto)

    And that’s just to rent a one bedroom apartment.

    What if? (Assembly Bill 5 in Toronto)

    Under an NDP government, maybe; under the Liberals and Tories: not happening. Don’t hold your breath while you wait

    What if? (Assembly Bill 5 in Toronto)

    For $20/hr AFTER expenses and HST, yes. Min-wage? No thanks.

    What's the best lie a pax has ever told you and why.

    That statement alone should have raised a big, honking red flag all the way up to outer-space.

    UBER STOCK TRACKER

    It was climbing because Uber laid off a whole bunch of engineers. But that in itself won’t make Uber profitable.

    FROM $380,000 to $20,000

    Some senior politician, maybe even the mayor, obviously got a nice contribution to their retirement fund. Like I said: there is no politics more corrupt than municipal politics. Hindsight is always 20/20 It’s always easy to see exactly what you need to do, long after you should’ve done it.
