    September 17 is just a teaser, Wait for the full movie release in February 2020

    TLC aka Agency of the Unintended Consequences rushed in with votes before doing the careful analysis the negative impact of utilization rates have on drivers. They loves creating new rules after new rules but never takes responsibility when things go wrong.

    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...

    Rider damages my NEW car and Uber does nothing

    So a rider damages my brand new $50,000.00 car and I don't discover it until later. After notifying Uber, all I get is an "Oh well, sorry for your luck". Apparently, since I do not know which rider is responsible, Uber will do nothing about it. They did say that I could file an insurance claim...

    Uber argues its drivers aren’t core to its business, won’t reclassify them as employees

    Want a good laugh or cry. This is how desperate Uber is. https://www.theverge.com/2019/9/11/20861362/uber-ab5-tony-west-drivers-core-ride-share-business-california Gee, over 15 million rides a day and we are not the core business. Pretty weak.

    Uber’s new scheme to STEAL our money. This should be a lawsuit.

    Take a closer look at how Uber calculate the distance at EVERY corners. It goes right through the building and getting a diagonal distance(which is about 70% of our actually distance at those turns) (1 divided by square root of 2) Check your low mile trips and tell me this happens to everyone...

    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?
