Discussion in 'Quit' started by TwoFiddyMile, Dec 3, 2016.
I'm with you I hear all the time "I will never ride Uber cuz I don't trust them".....
Lyft is destroying Uber w/ the folks that have a conscience.
I can verify that there's a slew of pax out there that won't take Uber because of "trust issues".
Took an Uber ride the other night in which the driver was continuously bombarded with pings. As a driver I was quite jealous.
I'm 50/50 on whether the Uber Unicorn will just up and disappear one of these days. There's an incredibly simple solution; raise rates. Make them about -20% of a regular taxi and people still use Uber in droves. I think the investors at Uber will have to force kalanick out first, he's responsible for a toxic culture that seems like it can't pull itself out of its tailspin. Especially treating their employees/drivers the way they do. An incredible lack of respect, con job.
This is kinda how my meetings went with Jeff Jones.
I ain't fixen nothing!
SDC will fix it and get costs way down and bring massive profitability ....
In Las Vegas...SDCS @ 8 mph...taxis @ 38 mph. Who you gonna' take? LOL.
Sadly, probably not.
Haven't driven in 2 and 1/2 months ..done and washed Uber out of my life ...if your still driving for this evil thieving company you need to start crunching some numbers ..its not worth it ..I stop in here from time to time to laugh at all the idiots still driving and Uber constanly in the news ..its a joke ..just look at your taxes if that isnt enough to quit..
I realy do think the cabs with get their service back and Uber will go up in flames..
Of course do I need /s?
When this thread was originally posted. It was prior to the current scandals:
-Travis' rant caught on video.
-Travis supporting Trump
-The sexual harassment allegations by a developer.
-The #deleteuber movement
-The price gouging during the taxi protect against Muslim ban.
...And a host of many other things in the last 3 months Feb -April.
I hope the original poster is right. Travis does not deserve the drivers. I hope it crashes and burns prior to 2018. My hope is other rideshare companies take heed and learn from the mistakes of Travis and implement changes that favor the driver.
Almost halfway through 2017. Things are going well towards my Swami prediction.
Once uber starts losing these high profile BILLION$ lawsuits it will rapidly collapse. I have seen nothing that makes me believe that uber isn't guilty of every single one...
A LOT of employees are cutting and running. The rats are fleeing the sinking ship.
On the other hand, the several prototypes they're testing on the roads here in SF "appear" to be working as intended. In which case, bankruptcy is the ideal legal vehicle for Travis to eliminate millions of independent contractor driver jos--and save investors billions in cost while he revamps/rolls out a new business model. As independent contractors we drivers are both a blessing and curse for rideshare companies. On one hand, we're critical for company revenues and growth. Lyft's exponential penetration and branding in the SF market has proved this. On the other, we're an onerous burden where expenditure and liabilities are concerned. Driverless cars would permanently eliminate a very big migraine for Travis and his investors in the future.
You are aware of the Waymo lawsuit????
Yes and Travis has the luck of Lucifer + 9 lives to date.
So I'm betting my non existent weekly bonus on a Waymo loss
Hope it crashes soon
Luck runs out this time. Waymo has a deeper bench to pull from and won't wince when Uber swings.
Travis can't buy his way out of this one.
