    Drivers last names given to Pax?

    There's a lot of talk about this on some of the other boards. "Uber has been revealing drivers full last names to riders since September" "Uber driver last names revealed to passengers!?" Has anyone here ever taken an Uber and received the driver's full name or at least their last name...

    Sorry, Me English No Good 🤷‍♂️

    Lately, I've been getting a lot of pax forcing a conversation. Like I would give one worded responses, and they would still try to tell me about how their cat died or how their teenage daughter is having twins.... Most of the time, I just dont feel like conversating. I definitely do not feel...

    What’s up with pax sending descriptions of themselves?

    I’m responsible for driving to the pin. With traffic, bicycle riders, looking for a place to legally pull over, other cars beeping at me, and cops threatening to give me a ticket. I will not be responsible for picking you out of a crowd with all that going on. Uber gives you everything you need...

    Gave Rex Ryan a ride last night.

    Had an unexpected ride down to Glassboro NJ. So I put on the DF and got a ping for a 45 minute ride. The pickup was 19 minutes in the wrong direction, but I was desparate for a ride back to PA. The pickup was at a large house on a dark country road. Pax was named Ryan. First of all the pin was...

    A take of two blind pax.

    I dropped a kid off at a college in the city. There were lots of kids walking around like classes had just let out, so I figured I'd stick around and see if I could get a rematch. Sure enough, I got a ping in a couple minutes. I was close enough to the pin that I didn't even have to move the...

    How do I know you are not a RAPIST?

    I was waiting in New Brunswick and got Lyft XL request from Hilton hotel. When I got there to pick up pax and first thing I saw there were 7 pax’s and I thought it wasn’t going to be a pleasant ride. So, I got there and a women (white Spanish inbreed) opened my car front pax side door and...

    Rideshare Vehicle Germ Killing Device.

    A possible solution for the question: https://uberpeople.net/threads/how-do-you-protect-yourself-from-sick-pax.351974/ Often, we hail an Uber or Lyft and simply climb into the backseat with few questions asked. Unless it looks pretty grungy, we might not think about how clean the car is...

    Pax says - “you get no...”

    I pick up two women going to a movie theater. Younger one is twenty something, older one is fifty something. Very quiet pickup, no sign of trouble. When we get about a block away from the destination, I ask if it’s on the left or the right, because I don’t see a theater. They tell me it’s about...

    Uber's Matching algorithm

    Get out your tinfoil hats, ladies and gentlemen! Ever wonder how the algorithm matches drivers with passengers (pax)? One of the frequent lies Uber tells everyone is that the ride request goes to the closest driver. But as experienced drivers know, that’s simply not true. It’s time to take off...

    I know the answer to my questions, but I’ll still ask them: Other than the generic, “follow rules of traffic...and other laws,” does Uber ever send emails telling passengers that they CAN’T have more than four passengers for an Uber X, even if the car has enough room? Do they tell passengers...

    Two Junkies and a kid.

    Accepted a request from the hood. I hate dead miling it out of there when I’m on a roll, so I just took it. There’s a 6 to 8 year old boy, his mom (with Blue Hair) and Grandma. They are kind of sluggish getting in the car. Blue mom somehow manages to get her phone cord stuck down next to the...

    Pax whines about previous driver.

    I get a ride request for a 4.70 named Phillip at a hotel across from City Hall in Philly. It’s alway a difficult pickup at this hotel because theres heavy traffic. If you try to pull into the circle, it will be clogged with cars, and you’ll have to back out into heavy traffic. If you don’t see...

    Airport request from a bus.

    I drop someone off at airport departures, and get a rematch. I’m on my way around to the arrivals lane, when I start getting texts from the guy. He says he’s on the enterprise bus, and on his way over. Then another text - “on my way”. Then a third - “be there soon”. So I’m thinking he knows I...

    Rideshare Drivers Who Block Traffic: Oh Stella!

    I went out for coffee with a friend of mine the other day. Since we both went in her car, I got the chance to be a passenger, which was a nice break from driving for me. While we were en route, traffic in our lane suddenly came to a screeching halt. There was no red light or stop sign ahead...

    I had my first therapy session.

    When I pulled up to this pax, I thought I saw her sneeze. Her face was all red and her eyes were all watery. I said to her, it looks like you’re suffering from some allergies. She was quiet for a second, and then she let loose. Half crying, all beside her self, complaining about her boyfriend...

    What, where, when, why, how?

    I kid you not. These are real questions I have been asked by pax. Why can’t you give me both names? Can you wait while I finish this cigarrette? Why can’t you pick me up where I’m at, instead of the pin? Why can’t we bring open beer in the car? Why don’t you like loud music in the car? You...

    Road Rage 101

    I'm pretty sure as drivers we have all dealt with road rage. Question is, have you ever dealt with it with pax in the car? Quick story: I picked up 3 elderly women from the airport and we started heading into town. 15 minutes in, they all started napping. No biggie. I'm in the right lane, I...
