    Ubering in a sedan vs SUV

    This also applies to Lyft, Gett, Via, etc. I'm just curious of the pros and cons between the two. And while you neysayers, believe that driving for apps suck, that's been well covered and not what this thread is about. Especially since I noticed that some of these "bonuses" sometimes excludes...

    What is your guess as to when Waymo opens to the general public?

    Self driving cars are here carrying select civilians on live roads. The next step is to remove the Waymo employee from the passenger's seat. Waymo will then go live to the general public in Pheonix AZ. When do you think this will happen?

    When folks ask how is Uber/Lyft

    I always tell folks it is like a Payday loan. You put your car out there to make minutes, but then you have to start accounting for wear and tear, insurance, new tires, car washes, mileage... Then explain that my car since December has over 40k new miles (I used to take every ride, even the...

    Legit Question...

    OK, nowadays, I'm paying more attention to PAX behavior. Out of all the things they do, this one is the dumbest. You pile 3 OF YOU in the back seat, squished, can't breathe, move and complain how you have no room the ENTIRE RIDE! Everytime that happens, I look back and squint and I KNOW they...

    Discontinue at the end of this month (8/17).

    Hello.. I've decided to discontinue driving for Uber/Lyft at the end of this month. Eventhough I get some extra pay, the risk outweigh the rewards such as insurance, low pay (especially through Uber eats), wear and tear on the car. It had its moments and decided to end it if not sooner. Good...

    Anyone look at those ridiculous driving style reports under the Ratings screen? Apparently I excelled myself today doing 92 for 20 seconds during the rush hour on the Dumbarton Bridge. Even better than yesterday's 85 for 30 seconds in the Treasure Island tunnel in heavy traffic. Idiots. The...
