    Quit Slamming my Car Doors as you leave the vehicle!

    Solution: Get out and open the door for them. Then close it yourself. Otherswise stop complaining and continue to treat your car like a taxi. Taxis are disposable.

    Tax registration certificate

    Keep in mind guys they really do not get the info from your home address rather because you filed for an LAX permit they share that info with the Tax assessors office. It's the reason why any limo company wanting to do business at LAX has to get a City of LA business licience or an expemption...

    Lax surge question

    Mainly because if it was on the surge would be astronomical. A couple or three jumbos land and you got hundreds of people wanting a ride at once. WOuld easily rise to 10x many times throughout the day. This would force people to use the Taxi's that are ready to go at the curb. Uber do not...

    Yea but I think a few weeks later they gave Lyft a pass to do it because they came to them and asked if it was OK. Uber Never asked. Or maybe it was because Lyft got all their yearly reports in on time. EIther way no teeth behind it as Uber just kept doing Pool without interruption.

    Is Uber dropping ratings on purpose?!!!

    DO new drivers in your market come in at the 25% commission rate?

    I think it was pretty well established that Uber Pool and lyft line were illegal under PUC regs. At one point though they did allow Lyft to continue with it as an experiment. But to my knowledge they never gave Uber authorization to do it. See the letters from SSept 8th...

    Well I sure hope they are not treating the 100K mile 8 year old cars the same way. But all things being equal I would rather have someone look at it that looks at cars every day. I would venture to say though that for every 1 newer car like yours there are 4 old ones that really need a good...

    Oh for sure Uber has always required it but it's not the law. I guess I can give them a bit more credit on that. Although at their hiring events they got 20 year old liberal arts majors inspecting cars. So theirs that.

    Is Uber dropping ratings on purpose?!!!

    Theory: In many markets New drivers get 25% commission taken out of fares. Old drivers at 20% who get below the ratings threshold can take a class to get reinstated but they come back under the new 25% commission structure. Every driver you eliminate through lower ratings and bring back you...

    That is actually not true under the existing laws. Lyft got by it by having their "mentors" do the inspections and Ubler asked for a clarification from the PUC if that was allowed. They said according to the way it is written now it does not specify who does the inspection just that it is...

    What under the hood... Oil changes

    Dan The Lyft Man I am curious as to who or how do you evaluate the life of your brake pads? The quick lube place tell you?

    I Guess he had enough

    I hear Uber is going to add a question for when you log in: "You feel like killing anyone in the next few hours?" Yes "Please log in when the feeling subsides." "And hurry demand is off the charts!!"

    Limo Companies using Uber Drivers to Pick Up their Clients at Airports.

    Uber's prices are getting so low I think Lyft will just start orderihg Uber cars for their riders. That would be funny.

    Limo Companies using Uber Drivers to Pick Up their Clients at Airports.

    Oh Yea probably shuttle. No Limo company would use UberX and have some guy in a sweatshirt pick up their client.

    Limo Companies using Uber Drivers to Pick Up their Clients at Airports.

    And they are not charging $50 more like $120.00 with a tip included. Get you mind out of Uber rates. Some people pay a premium for service. IF you do not want to provide it best to cancel and leave the job for someone who will.

    Limo Companies using Uber Drivers to Pick Up their Clients at Airports.

    Are you working on the Uber Black Platform? Many times in the limo indusrty someone makes a mistake and a limo company needs a car right now. Uber seems to be the perfect solution to that situation especially in the black market segment where most of the cars are regular limo type cars and the...

    Car question

    Or get a spray bottle of water and douse down your passengers. They should tip well for that.

    Car question

    ALthough it's very hard on your car , if everything is working on your vehicle it should stay in the normal operating temperature range. If you see the temp gauge rising you may actually have a problem with one of your radiator fans or cooling system. Also pretty bad on the mileage but with...

    has anyone heard of Uber hiring drivers with disabilities

    Not new, although the features added for the deaf drivers are new, like within the last year. BUt there have been deaf drivers on the system for a while. Deaf drivers are actually not allowed to transport passengers on the federal DOT level (cars with 16 Plus passengers) but there have never...
