    Hit the trifecta today!

    First Call: High School Student, obviously under 18, going to school WITH HER MOTHER. Second Call: Picked up Lady and her infant at a Hotel. HAD A CAR SEAT! Third Call: Woman with a Service dog......WITH A BLANKET TO PUT OVER THE SEAT! Not a bad start to an amazingly slow day.

    This is how you deal with minors

    I had the doors locked and got on the phone with support, As The Timer Counted Down. Do not cancel until due time. Profile picture is Queen Elizabeth! I got $5.00 fee.

    Minors?

    I had a ride today where when I arrived, an adult walked their kid, maybe 12 or so, to the truck and told me to take them to the food court entrance at the mall where she was meeting another adult.. I took the ride, but then 1stared them so I wouldn't get them again. Is that reasonable? I am...

    Uber giving us thanks

    Just got my Thanksgiving email from Uber, thanking me for being there for the pax. Couldn't help but notice that they are endorsing drivers to pick up unaccompanied minors from soccer games. Anyone else catch that?

    Uber promotes picking up minors!

    I got a response from an inquiry I sent in to LYFT. In the scripted response it said, thank you for picking up at "soccer practice" for a busy parent.

    Poll - unaccompanied minors

    Before the peanut gallery goes nuts pointing out that taking unaccompanied minors is against TOS, I would like to point out that I already know this. Just trying to get a feel for where people's thoughts are on this issue.

    They Want All The Underage Riders They Can Get

    I've been confounded with underage riders since I started 10 months ago. I've noticed that they make it difficult to get the fee for an underage rider. Lyft makes you call to get a refund and Uber lets the ride disappear. The one time that I stayed until they canceled, I was hit with a warning...

    Yup, I'm on Lyft too.

    Dropped off my last pax in a residential neighborhood and got a ping right after from a house next to where I had stopped. 4.74 rating. Why not. I waited and waited, until the magic cancel button appeared and right when I was about to cancel, two kids, both under 16 come out. "Hi, are you my...

    On Fox news 13 this AM

    Some genius Uber / Lyft driver got himself in trouble. Back in Oct, he picked up 3 minors - 14, 15, 15 - at Amalie Arena and on the way home, he pulled over into a Publix parking lot - showed them a porn video on his phone. It might even have been a video of an underage girl too. Sounds like...

    I drove two 17 year olds today. They lied about their age and then fessed up. I proactively emailed uber about it. Here's their response. Please do not drive any minors. Uber will deactivate you. All it takes is one paxhole complaining and you're done. Note That when i responded to their email...

    Underage rider request

    Anyone know what legal problems could arise if a passenger is under 18 and a accident or some kind of incident occurs during a trip. Uber mentions on the website, if you think a passenger is under 18 you can ask for a i.d. and cancel the ride if under 18. Sometimes the riders look well beyond...
