    Poll - do you refer people to drive for U/L?

    Sometimes pax tell me they are thinking about becoming a driver. At that second, 10 different thoughts cross my mind. Usually those thoughts lean in a certain direction which has to do with whether I like them or not (how good of pax they have been so far). Sometimes I think I would love to see...

    CA drivers, which company will you choose?

    When AB5 passes, it will take effect in January. As official employers, U and L will have the power to command that we only drive for them (in CA), and no other. If that happens, and you decide to actually follow the rule they set, which company will you choose to drive for?

    POLL: Do you NEED to 'cash out your earnings' daily?

    This is a quick straw poll in the local base here to see how many people NEED (as in buy food and other staples) to use PAYFARE or UBER'S Cash-Out system. EVERY DAY. It is intended to give any casual visitor to the forum a sense of 'just how bad' things have gotten in the 'gig' economy in...

    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.

    Do you care if pax wears seatbelts?

    Scanning some fluff news, and Dara told CNBC that his low Uber rating (4.73) was due to him repeatedly not wearing a seatbelt in the back seat of his rides. An Uber spokesperson "confirmed" that when pax don't wear seatbelts, that REALLY irritates drivers. Opinions?

    Your DF is gone. What now? (Poll)?

    I thought I could caption the poll. The poll context assumes 1. You use DF and it gives you an illogical result or 2. You are far from your destination, and your filter is not/has stopped/working.

    Would you use a free dashcam?

    Why should anyone complain of a video cam? But maybe you have other ideas. I'm only stating if it were "free" because we are all interested in keeping our costs down.

    Pet Peeves: for pax to read

    As drivers, we obviously dislike people vomiting or damaging our car. But those instances are rare. Most often it's the simple things that cause drivers to rate passengers (pax) low. Drivers, sound off, what annoys you the most? Try to keep it professional, hopefully a somewhat positive thread...

    How do YOU calculate your pay? POLL

    Some people think they make great money doing this, others say they constantly earn below minimum wage. How we each calculate our pay can vary dramatically. I'm curious what the common methods are.

    Actual in-App Tips Recieved

    Please answer the poll. I am curious, about how much do Lyft drivers actually receive in Tips. So much has been made of Lyft's in-App feature that there has been little discussion of the structural downsides: Lyft must report all in-App tips to the IRS. You are therefore fully taxed on Lyft...
