    UberBoat - Croatia

    I saw this on someones Twitter post, apparently in Croatia. I'm sure it will be ok for small boaties at the beginning but wait till they drop prices and see how much boat fuel gets you.

    Uber. Does any of this make any sense? Really?

    I wrote this as a response to a member and decided to start a thread on this... Bottom line, think through this entire plan, weigh in your driver experience, add in some basic common sense, and take a look at a bit of history. You decide! Would love to see some active opinions here! Cheers --...

    The Gig Economy’s False Promise

    The promises Silicon Valley makes about the gig economy can sound appealing. Its digital technology lets workers become entrepreneurs, we are told, freed from the drudgery of 9-to-5 jobs. Students, parents and others can make extra cash in their free time while pursuing their passions, maybe...

    When Their Shifts End, Uber Drivers Set Up Camp in Parking Lots Across the U.S.

    Interesting how the mainstream press seem to be awakening to the treatment of workers in the gig economy. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-23/when-their-shifts-end-uber-drivers-set-up-camp-in-parking-lots-across-the-u-s

    So I took a customer in pool. The person who ordered the ride said the guy who's in my car doesn't speak English, no big deal whatever. I get to the first persons destination and drop her off, but I accidentally end both trips. I have the guy in my car who doesn't speak English call the person...

    Protest the low rates. Stand together.

    I want all Nashville Uber drivers to band together and protest the low fares! Without us there is no Uber. I would love to arrange a day where we protest outside of the corporate office in Germantown. We need our voices heard and things to change. Every city does things differently in terms of...

    How can Uber boast about higher earnings?

    I am a new driver but this morning I went out for 5 hours and made only $ 28.00. How can Uber boast about higher earnings? When in reality with hourly rate it's much lower? Is Atlanta market over saturated with drivers? I don't understand why Uber keeps looking for new drivers???

    I feel your pain

    I will no longer drive for Uber unless it's a surge and with the even lower fares it probably still not even worth it. After filing taxes after expenses I didn't even clear minimum wage per hour. Uber may not but I certainly count my time driving to pickups and long rides home without pay. I...

    I'm now getting very bored

    I'm getting nothing but short ride, after short ride, after short ride. Most of my rides now are below $10. That includes rides that req me to drive 10-20 mins to get them. Some semi rural places I used to like to go to i now find myself avoiding, even if I recognize the address. Not driving 15...

    San Diego drivers to protest cheaper fares, DC drivers com·pla·cent

    In San Diego County, where Uber has roughly 12,000 drivers and 545,000 riders, UberX drivers currently make 90 cents per mile during non-peak hours. Cheaper Uber rides are proving to be the opposite of a good deal for some. A contingent of drivers for the app-based ride-hail company plan to...

    Drive Uber - Earn Points - Not Tips!

    This whole Uber 5 star satisfaction scoring point system is exactly like being in elementary school, having a "good day" and getting a smiley face sticker from the teacher. Yippee!!! Look what I got!! You've made my day! My driving satisfaction would be greatly improved if the passengers had...

    Uber Adds Jaguar Tickets And Veterans Donations To App Yet No Tips..HAHA

    If that doesn't tell you how your employer, partner, boss or whatever really think about you then...... Uber makes sure they can hook everybody up but still no tips for the people that make them the money must be nice for them. Makes me think they don't give a shit but maybe we are last in line.

    Getting Pings from 15-29 minutes away?!?

    I just declined to accept a ping that was 29 minutes away from my location (home). How am I the closest Uber driver around? I'm not driving that far for what will probably be a $6-10 fare. This week my fares from home have been 12-17 minutes away but the pax shows a shorter time like 9-13...

    Uber drivers are fighting a corporate culture

    Travis Kalanick has been compared to Amazon's Jeff Bezos by Bezos' "relentlessly pushing to keep prices low while expanding—at the cost of short-term profits". Consider this, if Uber does not care about its profits as a company, how can Uber care about the profits of its drivers. Kalanick...

    Rider Explodes at Cab Driver, After Being Charged 'Fairly' for Trip. (Eyewitness Account)

    So, I'm sitting at my favorite watering hole 'rider' area, driving my own platform, Uber not online, but always watching the potential surge login prompt. I've had multiple GOOD runs over the last 4 hours driving my own platform, and I see 2 cars pull in to the lot dropping drinkers off to this...

    And So It Begins. But in a Different Language...Ahh, Destiny

    So, tonite in my short, surge chasing excursions, my 2nd group of middle aged concert partying pax share a story with me that was what I forecasted my 2nd nite driving for Uber, after being @@@@@ slapped with some ridiculously low fares for my time. I had many pax tell me these last few weeks...
