Welcome to the forum.Going for a pretty long drive to a place I plan to visit with my wife. I am contemplating picking up some riders along the way. Can I specify the number of seats available for this particular trip? Is there a setting I can set in my app?
One word answer...I never understood why this is a ppolicy. As rideshare, why cant I share my ride while i have someone with me? As the OP wants to share a ride while he and his wife go traveling, why shouldnt he be able to share that ride? As long as its stated in the request.
Perhaps it can be a rider setting where they can get a 10% discount if theyre willing to accept a driver that has their own passenger with them (wife,he, child, etc) I think it should at least be an option.
When the driver accepts the ping, the pax can be allerted that driver has a front seat pax and the ride will be discounted by 10% if they accept the ride.
That doesn’t make sense. I am still the driver (who passed the background check). The issue here relates to (one of) the passengers. They don’t pass background checks, AFAIK. They are strangers to each other. Why does it matter if one of the passengers relates to me? The only difference is that passenger is non-paying. But it shouldn’t affect (and doesn’t, I am pretty sure) affect how much the rest pay for their rides.
Unless your pax requests pool, their expectation is that the car picking them up has people in it who have passed a background check.
Any felon could steal a Uber driver's phone and suddenly they are an Uber driver unless they happen to get the "image verification" pop-up. The expectation is that the driver passed a check but the reality is that no driver may necessarily be who they are supposed to be.
And the same is true with taxis and police cars. Anyone can make their car look like a taxi cab or a police car, or could have stolen one.
Huh? I never said otherwise. In any case, if the only reason your wife can't ride is because she hasn't passed a background check, maybe Uber should let you pay a fee to have a background check done on your friends and family members so they can be with you when you drive.Sure, but that still doesn't mean you can have someone else ride with you.

I never will understand the background check obsession many people have. People are too afraid of each other I think because they mostly go about unarmed.
The pax would be covered by Uber's insurance. They're legitimate Uber pax and doing nothing wrong.Whats the difference between insuring me and 2 uber pax and me, my pax and 1 Uber pax? If you have adequate personal/commercial insurance, youre significant other will be fine. Either you have adequate insurance or you don't, regardless of the pax being uber or your husband.

The person who would not be covered would be the spouse. And if you file a claim with your regular personal car insurance, they would deny the claim AND cancel your policy because you're using the car for rideshare and they don't insure for that.
I could also see Uber's insurance company refusing to cover damage to the car or any injuries to the driver. They will still protect the paying pax, but if you're violating the TOS, I could see them saying you're not covered.
