    How anxious are we about Caronavirus?

    How exposed are we to COVID19? On a daily basis I pick up & drop off international & domestic travellers from the airports. I also transport health workers to our hospitals. Is it wrong to ask passengers to sit in the rear seat only? I think this is a legitimate request as my biggest fear is...
  2. C me a @@@@ then

The response from uber has been overwhelming; *Bonus $$$ for 3 ride series *5% commission on rides after first 50 *$250 reward after 50 completed rides in the week Finally, we are being treated like...

    Cancelling accepted rides...gone!

    Uber have now taken away the ability for a driver to cancel an accepted rider request. Once “a reason” is activated by the driver the app just “spins” in a nutural cycle of nothingness. It is now up to the rider to “cancel” once they realize the driver is not moving or heading in another...

    The last straw!

    until now, I’ve refrained from signing up with Ola but Uber have now forced me to do so. As of this morning Uber Have removed the ability to run the driver & rider platforms simultaneously on a single phone. Switch from driver app to rider app & it now renders you inactive on drivers app...

    Typical Uber, change the rules as they see fit. Twice in a week they have given me a very short trip from T1. What happened to them offering the “4 hour” hold on your position in the que if you accept..?

    What are Uber doing to counter Ola...SFA!

    until now, I’ve resisted the need to consider driving for Ola. I figured that Uber would be prepared to loose a bit of market share knowing that in the long run, Ola will have difficulties. But I’m now of the opinion that Uber are in no way being proactive in engaging Its Driver network to...

    Uber tactics against Ola

    i think I uncovered one of Uber’s tactics against Ola this morning. It’s no secret that Ola is relying on existing Uber drivers to provide there service. I mean, no one is going sign up with them to drive exclusively as Uber owns the market so you’d be foolish to do so, right. So Uber really...

    lets roll back time almost 12 months to the time Tom White suggested one of the major factors in reducing the rates was the very low cost of fuel. Now, transport yourself back to the now & fuel prices have escalated 20-30% & according to latest news reports, are expected to go higher throughout...
