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.

Harry here. Today senior RSG contributor John Ince takes a look at an in-depth post from the New York Times about the psychological tricks Uber uses to push its drivers.
