    You can't make this stuff up.

    We all should write a book about these interesting characters that we meet everyday! The proud, the entitled, the humbled, the cheap, the fancy, the know it all, the jerk, the racist, the bum, the drunk, the student, the careless parent.. am I missing someone? Tell me in the comment below please..

    Good Idea???

    so after driving uber/lyft for almost a year now iv come to a conclusion that most of the problems w/ riders are riders who take shared/pool, and im thinking about not taking anymore shared/pool rides. Does anyone have the same realization.

    ORD pax requesting pool rides ?

    I got several UberX pings from the pit today, but all of them were pool rides at the terminals. What? Who does that? What a dumb idea! What if there isn't enough room for everyones's luggage and carry-ons? Anyway, I let them all time out, and so Uber then kicked me offline, and gave me...

    Pool unavailable

    Had a pax complain pool wasn’t a selectable option this morning. I figured it was few drivers in the vicinity and everyone was declining anything under x. Keep up the declines!

    Rejecting Pool Requests

    I've been reading on this and other forum pages that many Uber drivers do not accept "poo" requests. My (possibly ignorant) question is this: how do you do that? For me, at least, X and Pool requests look the same until I arrive at the destination to pick up the rider and the app tells me to...

    Shared Saver: Lyft’s new ‘most affordable ride’

    https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/21/18233440/lyft-shared-saver-carpool-cheapest-fares Riders who select Lyft’s new “Shared Saver” service in the app will have to wait a few extra minutes before being paired with a driver. After that, they’ll be directed to walk a couple of blocks to an optimized...

    stealth, "pool fakeout-ping" trick (?)

    Recently while in the pit, I declined 2 consecutive Uber Pool ride pings within 10 seconds of each other, then I accepted an UberX ping about 20 seconds after that. While on the way to the terminal, Uber then added another rider, also to be at the same terminal . . . I thought, wtf, this ping...

    Steet-smart paxy VS street-smart Driver

    I believe real frustration for a streetsmart person is another streetsmart. But, What about a STREETSMART POOL PAXY? yes, You’ve got it. Unless I was a nwbi, I would have waited more than two minutes.

    Does declining pool rides count against you in some way?

    I’ve seen it asked, but not answered here. Does it count against you some how to decline pool rides? I haven’t had that many of them, but am in the opinion of the majority, that I don’t like them. One of the first ones I received, I was picking up the pax (Kylie), waiting on them, when I...

    No more pool

    Uber's IPO would mean that there will be a much increased pressure from investors to turn a profit. That could potentially force Uber to stop subsidizing rides, giving promotions, raise pax rates and eventually get rid of pool. What do you think?

    The Pros and Cons of pooling, or is there a way to disable pooling in the app?

    I am wondering what the pros and cons are... I have a promotion that I need to reach 30 trips in a week to get some bonus. After looking at my account record, I found that I have only accumulated 4 (later about how it was counted. I am confused--I will start a new post on that)! So I figure I...

    Uber Eats Pool coming soon to a market near you

    I'm watching a video now and will include a link to the news article as well. Yes, the thread title is accurate; Uber has probably found yet another way to screw drivers! Uber is rolling out "pool" for UE; basically it's stacked orders. What does that mean for us? If you've ever done a stacked...

    Paxy 101,

    Hello Experienced survivors, I have realized I need more education and classes of understanding paxys’ language, although I’ve been driving for almost two years. So here is an example, while I’m arriving to a pool destination then two minutes start counting down, I usually receive a call from...
