    Vomit on the rise.

    Someone vomited in my car last night, all on the side and a little inside, for me to clean.

I now hug the right lane...

    After 5,500 Rides...First Puker

    It had to happen someday and unfortunately I was way underprepared. As a driver that normally transports business PAX, I was greedy and was looking for a long trip from a popular area DTS (it’s not where you think). I was desperate and took one on Lyft. That ended my night when I could have...

    Hello Uber People, Long time lurker, first time poster. Quick question for ya’ll. I had a passenger puke in my car last night just before bar close in PB. Most of it hit the door but some made it into the fabric of my seats. After taking numerous photos of the damage I did what I normally do...

    Submit a receipt within 24 hours

    I submitted a cleaning fee recently. Lyft wants me to submit a receipt, showing a I spent the money to clean my car. Eff you, Lyft! Lyft takes about 40% off the top on each ride. When you send me corporate financial statements showing where the money went, justifying the 40%, THEN I will send...

    The hallmark of a troublemaker

    Unless ride share companies include a punitive element in their cleaning fees for puke or vomit, many drivers will simply choose not to drive at night or pick up troublemakers. Charging $150-200 is not enough for a proper clean up or an adequate compensation to the driver. Riders and their...

    Cleaning fee...

    Yesterday was anything but an uneventful day considering I was blessed with only six trips. I get a ping from the Dunkin Donuts across from the train station and arrive to a PAX in a hurry to make the ferry in Highlands as he had just missed the train. Along the way he blurts out "damn, I just...

    Kudos to uber this time

    I had a guy puke in my car last night. Uber gave the 150$ asap went and had it cleaned at a place that was open today and very little down time and I didn’t have to touch it. I’m giving them a good job getting me back on the road.

    What have you been getting for cleaning fees lately?

    On St Patty's day this year, I was surprised to get only $80 for the same damage that last year paid $150. In this case, the puker got the outside of the door, the inside, and also down into the window where it meets the door. Photos were clear. Last year I was paid a $40 cleaning fee for...

    You Guys Just Need to Learn How to Do Emergency Clean-Up, and be Ready for It.

    Over and over, I have read postings about some driver whining about getting gypped out of cleaning fees. I was a cab driver, and there was NO cleaning fee where I drove, unless I fought with the passenger about it, or had a warning sign that could be reinforced by the local police. We have to...
