It looks like Uber’s search for a new CEO is not going so well, but the difficulty in finding a replacement (if that’s truly the case) for Travis looks to be more complicated than just “internal divisions.” Could Travis come back to Uber in some capacity? Is he engineering his re-hiring? In today’s round up, senior RSG contributor John Ince covers the hold up for finding a TK replacement, an article about Uber being “too expensive” for passengers, and Uber cars catching fire.
If you’ve been driving for a while, you know probably know a lot of the driver lingo for Uber and Lyft: Surge, Quest, Boost, pinging, TOS, etc. But if you’re a new driver, these terms can be confusing. There’s no official Uber or Lyft manual (although you can check out our Ultimate Guides to Uber and Lyft!), so it’s not like you can even look up what all this stuff means.
Luckily for us, senior RSG contributor John Ince has been collecting rideshare abbreviations for us for a while and has put together the Ultimate Guide to Rideshare Driver Lingo. If you’ve ever wondered what a TCP is, or why anyone would “pee in the POOL”, John has you covered. Did we miss any lingo? Leave a note in the comments and, if it’s a good one, we’ll add it to this list!

Today’s round up begs a lot of big questions about the future of Uber (and Lyft), but also some smaller, funnier questions. RSG contributor John Ince tackles these questions and more in today’s round up, where he covers Lyft’s self-driving cars plan, how companies are funding Uber’s rivals, and which fast food company is more popular for drivers.

Is Uber a valuable company – what does it owe its investors, drivers, and customers? That’s one of the questions RSG contributor John Ince tries to tackle in this week’s round up. In addition to these Uber questions, should the “gig economy” be more responsive to workers’ rights in terms of a minimum wage, holiday pay, and more? A UK government review tries to answer that question this week as well.
