Uber and Lyft offer refunds

I have a question and a tip for this:
(CBS) — Uber and Lyft are going beyond apologies and offering refunds to riders who paid as much as $ 110 for a ride when police shut down three CTA ‘L’ lines during the Tuesday morning rush.

Police shut down tracks used by the CTA Red, Brown and Purple Lines for nearly three hours, from 6:45 until 9:30 a.m. A body was found on the tracks.

The city of Chicago’s Business Affairs and Consumer Protection Department accused Uber and Lyft of taking advantage of riders by allowing surge…

Are all American cars bad for Uber? Toyota/Honda the only way to go?

I have a question and a tip for this:
I am no expert when it comes to cars. In some thread I have seen people bashing a 2005 Caddy and other American made cars, Claiming those will require major expensive maintenance at 100k mark.
While I know Toyota and Honda makes the most reliable cars and they tend to last like 200k miles with proper maintenance, Are there no American made cars comparable to a Toyota or Honda? What about Chrysler, Chevy or Ford? I remember I read somewhere newer cars (post 2010) can easily go for 150k miles…

Waze Maps to Uber maps

I have a question and a tip for this:
How do you switch from Waze Maps to Uber Maps while on a trip? I like using Waze but don't get the address number like on Uber. Is there a way to switch from one to other when close to drop off point? I'm afraid to experiment and screw up the trip

Coming to the Twin Cities:: Hayride Uber

I have a question and a tip for this:
I grew up in a small rural town in southern Minnesota and one of the funnest parts of my life was going on hayrides as a kid.

I keep thinking about how much people in the Twin Cities would probably enjoy this experience who possibly have never even been on a hayride before!

I originally planned to do this in autumn, but I have been getting impatient, and I have located a place I can get hay from already.

To protect my back seats of my car I plan to cover them with plastic or a tarp.
I…

Why would anyone drive Uber or Lyft in Detroit at those rates?

I have a question and a tip for this:
I'm amazed that Uber and Lyft can get anyone to drive for them in Detroit.

Not only are the rates tiny, but Lyft and Uber's cut is HUGE. $ 2.90 booking fee + 25% commission???!!!

How do drivers make any money there? How do they keep drivers?

Uber destination filter feedback

I have a question and a tip for this:
I just got a notification in my driver app to provide feedback on the destination filter for Uber.

I told them:

  • I want more than 2 uses per day.
  • I want a logical ratio implemented. Meaning, I do not want to travel 3 miles out of my way in order to pick up a trip that is for 0.5 miles.
  • I do not want to be logged off automatically by the app until I am at my destination, or I manually log off.

Uber tried to pocket my tip last night

I have a question and a tip for this:
Keep an eye on your rides. I had a rider last night tip me $ 10 while sitting in my from seat via pax app. It never showed on my end. What did show was a large service charge for Uber and I got $ 6 for a $ 20 fare charged to the rider. Looking at the same route on the pax app it was a $ 10 ride. After going back and forth with Uber via support messages with redundant auto responses they finally gave me my tip from their inflated service charge.
