    Monday in the San Diego UP forums. Once upon a time, the alarm went off at 4am. Brushed teeth, combed hair, dressed, and out the door. By 4:30am I’m picking up the first ride of the day to the airport. Today, the alarm has been turned off, and I rise when the sunlight breaks through. A casual...

    I was in Walgreens today and staff were putting up Halloween merchandise. Decorations, candy, kids costumes. Halloween night this year is a Saturday and the last day of daylight savings. I think it was last year that Uber sent out an in app message that Halloween was the second best night of...

    “What’s Uberspeak for Get The ### Out Of My Car?”

    I drive a black Chevrolet Equinox. It has plates issued by the California DMV on the front and rear, and those plates are not issued to any other vehicle. The vehicle is fitted with an Uber and Lyft sticker on the front and rear windows. I am a caucasian male, 6 foot tall, short brown hair...

    Cruise: self driving cars for rideshare

    From out of left field.... Rideshare is not my “career”, it’s what I do while caring for an elderly parent. I maintained professional credentials and still teach part time in my field. Late last night I was contacted by a recruiter in relation to a vacancy. They want to chat. The company’s...

    Promo: Lower Boost in Surge

    PUA Process

    The system came on line at 0530 this morning. Time to complete, about 20 minutes. This was about 10 minutes longer than needed as I couldn’t get one of the menus to accept a document number, and I had to search through a poor menu paging system to find a category which correlated with...
