.........and your complaint is_______________________________________________________?Final result? The end of ride share. Exactly what the taxi folks want.
You can not reject someone who hails you or approaches you on a street or taxi stand. You can reject trips that pop onto your screen. That is the substitute for your Right To Remain Silent that obtained in the days of voice dispatch (READ: REAL dispatch).Can cabbies reject a ride?
not really a min wage. city regulated uber rates to ensure the average driver is making min wage. city said "at current rates drivers are making 70% of the min wage, therefore ubet must raise its rates by 30%". no radical change in pay structure or classification.As I said in another thread, New York City Uber drivers are now employs. Uber is required to pay them $17.22 per hour, therefore a driver will be expected to take every single ping.
Expect massive deactivation.
Even BETTER !https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.engadget.com/2018/12/04/nyc-minimum-pay-wage-uber-lyft-drivers/&ved=2ahUKEwiJjJfygYffAhUBHzQIHcTsCroQqOcBMAB6BAgLEAQ&usg=AOvVaw0Fsdm0Vd1t1odLOu5DQFfi
In addition, drivers must be paid MORE for rides where they take people out of the city and have to deadhead back.
She will SHOW UP AT UBER CORPORATE !!!Uber will implement 4.8 rating or higher.
" Deliver A SERVICE "!?Uber replied to the New York TLC action with a pack of lies, a bucket of dupe and a load of spin.
"Uber supports efforts to ensure that....drivers in New York City....are able to make a living wage...."-LIE. If Uber truly supported that, the pay cuts, be they blatant or veiled never would have happened.
"...higher than necessary fare increases..."-Spin. It costs money to deliver a service. In the capitalist system under which this country operates, that cost is paid by the consumer. In addition, the consumer must pay an amount sufficient to allow the provider to turn a reasonable profit. Until UberX appeared, taxi driving was a middle class occupation. Uber has sought to reduce it to a poverty level occupation. Keep in mind that an UberX driver ain't nothin' but no unlicenced, illegal, under-insured, under-informed, ill-equipped, cut rate, discount tack-see driver". There is a reason why cab rates are what they are. It has little, if anything, to do with Big Taxi, which, in this market at least, does not apply. The rates are what they are because it costs money to equip keep up a vehicle, pay for licences, pay for supplies and turn a decent profit.
Consider this: I have rubber floors and vinyl covered seats in my taxi. This makes it easier to keep it clean: vacuum after dogs and people who sneak eat in the car; spray and wipe after people who sneak eat in the car, wipe up after people who track mud in the car; clean up after a ralpher. It costs money to have these things put into your car. Cab rates are sufficient to pay for this. TNC rates, AIN'T, which is why my TNC car is not so equipped.
"....missing an opportunity to...reduce congestion in Manhattan's central business district..."-DUPE. There have been studies that have proved that the proliferation of the TNCs has contributed to increased congestion. When the D.C. City Council imposed that new tax on the TNCs, Evans cited the increased congestion. There is at least one California study that asserts the same. My experience dictates increased congestion. This is one reason, out of a few, why New York capped the taxicabs in the 1930s.
"The TLC rules do not take into account incentives or bonuses......"-Spin. I will trade bonuses and incentives for reliable revenue streams. In addition, Uber Taxi was offering incentives and bonuses to cab drivers before the launch of UberX. Uber has no problem paying bonuses and incentives at any level. Finally, these bonuses and incentives on the X level amount to subsidising contractors. That is a textbook illustration of unfair competition.
"In addition, the rules miss an opportunity to.... deal with congestion"-It was DUPE when Uber asserted this the first time, why is it suddenly NOT dupe? Uber wants congestion alleviated? Good: it, VIA and Lyft can shut down to-morrow and not be replaced.
Finally, Uber wants to hold "bases" accountable for "keeping cars full with paying passengers".-Spin and DUPE combined. They want to hold the cab bases responsible for the cab drivers not hauling the customers that the TNCs took from them, due to the TNCs' being permitted to compete unfairly. This will allow them to drive the cab bases out of business and eliminate the competition: DUPE. Uber tries to spin it by asserting that it will reduce congestion, something for which it offers no proof.
Spin, DUPE and LIES: this is just what we have come to expect from Uber.
She looks like she would have more fun if she Could handle a BAR ?Even BETTER !
She will SHOW UP AT UBER CORPORATE !!!

You forgot drunk disorderly pax. I've done it when they were right on the edge of violence. It's rare, I need the money..........and your complaint is_______________________________________________________?

Given the current freeze on new drivers there of this happens it won't happen until after the freeze on new licenses are lifted.As I said in another thread, New York City Uber drivers are now employs.

Mista T...there is a difference between SAFETY and wages. The examples you gave were all a result of injury or deaths. 6 limo/cabbies committing suicide is a bad example.It was a horrible idea when government got involved in food service and required workers to wash their hands after using the bathroom, wasn't it?
It was a dumb idea when the FDA (a government entity) insisted on childproof caps on medication, right? All that unnecessary regulation leading to extra expense.
What a stupid idea school zone speed limits are! Just another example of government sticking their noses in when they are not needed, right Karen?
New York only had 6 driver suicides last year. Just six!!! Stupid politicians!
What do you mean the pax getting screwed in the end. They need to be paying more for their rides. They are paying a fraction of what taxi rates were decades ago, and as a dollar tip. The customer is always the source of revenue. About time the pax starts paying what the ride is worthDefinitely have to agree with you. No longer considered IC they will be required to play by Uber’s rules in terms of cancellations and acceptance rates. You can’t be expected to get paid 17.22 an hour by just sitting there declining every ping. I think Uber will start deactivating many drivers and will limit the amount of drivers on the street. Allowing it to surge and only paying the new surge price model to the driver (+2, +5...etc) essentially offsetting the min wage. I see the pax getting screwed over in the end. I’m interested to see what happens next. Definitely 17.22 per driver per hour is no joke.
I don’t know man. I’ve seen some of the prices Uber customers pay and I can say that many are paying 1.80-2.00 per mile. As much as a taxi service would cost. That’s what I mean. Uber usually takes 45% if not more of it. Just took a guy on a 12 mile ride lasted 18 min. He paid 24 bucks and I got $12. I even long hauled that one.What do you mean the pax getting screwed in the end. They need to be paying more for their rides.

You are required to transport "orderly" passengers. The Capital Of Your Nation does make exception for "has reasonable cause to fear for his safety", but that is a hard one to use. A driver once refused to take a passenger to a block where he had been robbed several weeks previously at the same time of night. The passenger filed a complaint. The then D.C. Taxicab Commission held a hearing. The Hearing Examiner would not allow that as an excuse. In fact, he told the driver that if he were afraid of the Public of Washington, D.C., he did not need that hack licence. He told the driver if he tried to use that excuse in front of him again under similar circumstances, he would be sat down for ninety days, minimum if not an outright revocation.You forgot drunk disorderly pax. I've done it when they were right on the edge of violence. It's rare, I need the money.
In a capitalistic economy, which is supposed to be what obtains in the U.S. of A,, the customer pays the cost of doing business. In Uber's "Corporate State Socialist" economy, the driver bears much of that cost without adequate compensation.About time the pax starts paying what the ride is worth
