Harry here. It seems like Uber’s bad PR just keeps happening, week after week. This week, it’s the departure of a top Uber exec and the potential for more employees to flee Uber. What does this mean for Uber – and Lyft? Senior RSG contributor John Ince breaks down the news, plus some alarming news for drivers who don’t have rideshare insurance, in this week’s round up.
Harry here. In general, I’ve found it better to work at night, especially weekend nights, because you can usually guarantee on bar hoppers and club goers to request an Uber or Lyft ride all throughout the night. However, not everyone can (or wants to) drive at night, so today, senior RSG contributor John Ince compares day time driving to nighttime driving to see which one truly comes out on top.

Harry here. Is this the end of Uber as we know it? Recent lawsuits may say yes, but then again, Uber has proved us wrong in the past. Uber is a scrappy company, and in this week’s round up, senior RSG contributor John Ince takes a look at a number of Uber issues – and potential ways for it to redeem itself. Anyone up for a flying Uber ride?

Harry here. According to our latest survey, a majority of drivers are dissatisfied with UberPOOL but what exactly makes these rides so unpleasant? Today, senior RSG contributor John Ince takes a look at why he doesn’t like to accept UberPOOL and Lyft Line rides.
I’ve never been a fan of UberPOOL and Lyft Line, but this weekend I let one slip past my watchful eyes and accepted it. Big mistake. It turned into the UberPOOL from hell. When I got home, I decided to put down all the reasons why I hate UberPOOL and Lyft Line. Later, my colleague at the Rideshare Guy, Christian Perea, added to the list with a few more POOL Pain Points. Feel free to let us know about your 3P’s in the comments section below.
If you’re not familiar yet with UberPOOL or Lyft Line, you can read more here, but basically UberPOOL and Lyft Line allow passengers to request a shared ride, which means they’ll share the ride with another passenger or two heading in the same direction. This saves the passengers money because they’re carpooling. For drivers, it’s another story.
