    Lyft Invading Privacy: Tracks Users When Offline

    I rode as a pax today... the experience is not good

    So I had to take 3 daytime rides as a pax for the first time in a few months. I'm pretty annoyed as a driver now. Terrible advertising-When I opened the app, there's a banner I get 50% of mon-fri. That's great for me as a pax, but as a driver what good is it if Lyft never advertised it ahead...

    Looking for some feedback

    Not sure if this is allowed, I read the guidelines and feel like it is though. I've been thinking about starting a rideshare advertising company but I am just not sure how many drivers would actually want to participate. I know there are already companies that do this here in Vegas but I want to...

    Uber confirms cheap service through advertising

    As I was seeing the usual new ads in the Snapchat app, this screen shot below of what was part of an animation of happy people getting about town. The thing that stood out for me was the top left corner. "Fast, affordable rides in minutes." Although this is at least in better taste than the...

    Ways to make money while driving

    Curious how drivers are making money while driving. I've seen some drivers hand out coupons for friends' restaurants or activities, but nothing more organized. What about something similar to the hotel/motel pamphlet giveaway boards for tourist activities? What a digital display with ads...

    Tablet Advertising and Tipping

    So I've seen recently these apps to provide adds and games to pax, on a tablet mounted to your headrest. These apps also have a electronic tipping feature since Uber refuses to add it. The big 3 (at least according to Google search) are Vugo, ViUer, and Viewdify. I saw TripCam too, but it seems...

    The demand for the Uber product is just not there!

    Uber is hiring more and more drivers, but the demand for the product is not there relative to the number of drivers they are hiring. Drivers quit! Then the drivers get discouraged and quick driving so Uber has to hire more drivers. ( Lyft has docs that support this. They were released...
