So I'm sitting near the bars last night right before 2:00AM when the familiar silhouette of a white Ford Focus pulls up next to me. He's waiting for his passenger, I see the gear, the sensors, the spinning LIDAR system. We're both waiting so I look at him, flash my phone displaying the driver app and roll my window down. I say hello and ask him a few questions. Very nice guy, welcoming and energetic: - He's been driving Uber's SDC for about 4 months - They drive 10 hour shifts, 4 ON, 2 OFF, 4 ON - Enthusiastically encouraged me to apply after I mentioned I considered driving (Application Here) - Really enjoys driving for Uber (as an actual employee mind you lol) I got his name and introduced myself. He waved goodbye after his passengers got in the car exclaiming, "Oh wow an autonomous Uber! Are you another driver?" (directed at the engineer in the passenger seat) Anyone consider driving their SDC? Anyone else talk with SDC drivers or staff?
