In my opinion AVOID leasing Mercedes METRIS at all costs.
Reason number one. Through Via you will pay $450 a week. If you were driving in the five boroughs you will find it necessary to change the brake pads every seven months. It takes 10 quarts of special oil, So your oil change will be...
I was given a flyer on Thursday at the Uber Greenlight Location in NYC for a free dash cam. Has anyone heard of this before? 2 guys that said they were the founders of a company came up to me about it while I was leaving.
Apparently, it's a free 2-year rental and they do something with the data...
Will TLC finally twist the big companies arm and make them pay out the a$$?
Should we celebrate the new increase of income or will we end up disappointed?

I had an intoxicated passenger the other night ripped my leather seat upon sudden exit from my brand new car with whatever sharp object in his pocket or attached to his pants while he was puking on my front passenger door. Uber refuses to pay for the damage and says its wear and tear! Finally...
Quick question for Via drivers - if you're on a trip and you have to pick up another passenger along the way, but the pick up point is in an area you can't WAIT (for example a bus lane during hours of operation), what do you do?
Not explaining the Title but if you've been reading, you will know. Mama Uber been play'n with our heads and just throwing all sorts of crap in the air to see what happens. Gone is paying drivers 80% of fare....gone is the old surge model...gone is the notion that more miles = more...
Little over a week ago I began the forum asking drivers for ideas on how the agency could help. I've taken many of the ideas to Director Chrappah and he had the idea of hosting a hearing to explore the pick-up and drop-off locations around the District. Please use the link below to...

I haven't done rideshare driving for little more than a week and wondered if anyone that drives the Via platform sees any more earnings potential since the zone increase? I hoped for the zone increase and wonder if the ridership has increased noticeably since the changes!
Via noticed me via text today that effective today their service will operate 24/7. They are way too late to join the party! Despite the newly announced 24/7 service their area of service still remain restricted to a limited downtown area and airport location.
The researchers analysed the lifestyles of more than 500,000 Britons aged between 37 and 73 over five years, during which they took intelligence and memory tests.
The 93,000 people who drove more than two to three hours a day typically had lower brainpower at the start of the study, which kept...

I've seen a lot of mixed responses and advice on what you should have in your car to get increased tips and top ratings. I was thinking of doing a couple of different things but wanted to get all of your advice and opinions before I commit.
Top things I've seen/heard about:
I'm a newbie. I just got my TLC license on Monday but haven't gotten a car yet.
I was thinking about renting a Tahoe/Yukon and going with VIA and maybe Gett and a limo base.
Does anyone have experience with these companies?
Info is much appreciated.
