    HopSkipDrive Hitting DC Market

    I don't know if this interests anyone, but HopSkipDrive is hitting the DC market. I actually found out about through a post on this forum. It seems to be the only rideshare service for minors and seniors that is operating in the DMV, presently. You have to get fingerprinted and they do a...

    Uber accidentally sent me a message intended for the rider.

    So, first image has the "one of these things doesn't belong here" feel. Try to guess which message it was. And here is the actual message, which gives me hope they are actually "investigating". I Love the idea that this actually happens when we report Unaccompanied Minors.

    We get paid for canceling on unaccompanied minors now??!!

    In another thread where the complaint about not even having a cancellation option for unaccompanied minors came up Tom Harding said this: I dont have this option.. Does anyone have the "unaccompanied minor" cancellation option to cancel BEFORE starting a trip? And if so, do you get paid for it...

    Unaccompanied Minors- Straight From Rohit's Mouth

    Pulled up, 4 kids. Asked them how old they were, they said 15. I said you need to be 18 or have someone 18 with you. Sorry not sorry but your ass is gonna freeze. They cancelled. Initially I didn't get a cancellation fee. A few back and forths with Rohit and got this. Bottom line: NO...

    When will Uber do ANYTHING about minors?

    It's against the Uber rules/policy for anyone under 18 to use Uber (unaccompanied by an adult). In California, it's also against the law. And yet EVERY day I get ride requests for unaccompanied minors. Uber pretends to care and enforce their rules and yet they don't even have an option when...

    Any suggestions to avoid morning grade/high schoolers

    Besides the obvious, don't drive in the mornings. Tired of arriving and having to say no. Would rather not deal with it.

    A couple dumped their teenage kid on me in Ybor

    I'll make a long story short - went to pick up the folks who pinged me for a ride late yesterday afternoon.

    Unaccompanied Underaged Minors

    A lot of drivers are unaware of the fact that Uber and state laws do not allow us to give rides to kids under the age of 18 when unaccompanied with an adult. I kind of stumbled across it in the passenger legal section looking for other information. I've since inquired about a drivers...

    That ended well...

    Uber's getting to be VERY tight with cancellation fees lately. I got a ping late Friday afternoon to what turned out to be a private high school in upper N.W. I didn't cancel when I pulled up to the school because I have had school staff get rides. Not this time. Sure enough up comes a kid with...

    Guide to rating pax

    As we all know, how our pax rate us is crucial to our continued right to burn ourselves and our cars up in the fight to make minimum wage. However, as far as I can tell there is no rating at which a pax is deactivated. The pax rating system does, or should, give guidance though to drivers in...
