    Report Riders?

    What happens if a rider makes a mess or even vomits in my car? How do you get the cleaning fee from them? And what happens if they dispute it?

    Lyft takes 46% before their lyft fee

    It is unfair that they do not show you what the customer gets charged. Then the take a Lyft fee on top of the 46% that we do not know about. We need to know the truth on all rides!

The first few rides I decided to look into all had issues, and Uber even changed 2 of them for me. However, after about 4-6...

    "You are eligible for Uber’s Fuel Card, enroll today!"

    "You are eligible for Uber’s Fuel Card, enroll today!" is what Uber's excited message says. What it means is Uber gets a percentage of the fees You pay for using "their" card and uber gets a percentage of the fees the gas station pays for accepting the card. It's a win-win for uber and the...

    Background Check Fee?

    I just started with UberEats and I can't tell if drivers receive a charge for the background check.
