Have you tried UBER?

Philippines
April 8, 2016 11:08pm CST
I signed up our car for UBER drive and I find it hard for me to understand the signing up process. Although I tried to translate it into english, the main form they are using is written on different language. I'm a fan of UBER ride, and been using it for almost a year now. UBER ride sign up is easier than being a partner. BTW, almost finished now. Have you tried UBER drive or UBER ride? What is your experience? Also if you're a partner, how long does it take you to start driving for UBER?

I have never used Uber and they also have Lyft here. It's really convenient for some but also can be dangerous as their are lots of lawsuits. I personally don't use the services but know of friends who do.

Lyft is like UBER? What sort of lawsuits are they facing now?

@zaga_cleuth Yes, Lyft is like Uber service. But there are a lot of problems with Lyft like robbery, assault, rape, etc. The news always has something to report on Lyft/Uber Drivers. The most recent news:
Ride-sharing service Uber agrees to pay $10m (£7m) and stop calling its background checks the safest in the industry.

@infatuatedbby oops. That is a bit nerve raising.

Nice. I actually just got home in an Uber cab. I am a customer and I love it. I have never driven for Uber but I have spoken to a few drivers who tell me that they make pretty good money on the weekends driving part-time with Uber. It is definitely worth a shot. Seems like you do need patience, however, dealing with drunks all the time. Best of luck and hope it works out for you!

I trust them more than Taxi drivers. Many taxi drivers are scammers and robbers.

I feel you. And most of them are haggling for bigger amount already even without them driving you to your destination. How rude is that.

Not yet but someone says the fair is higher than a taxi.

oops. I haven't heard of that. Most of the time, i can hear people say it is cheaper and better than taxi. Because you don't need to give tip and the fare calculation is same with others. The only time that the fare is higher is during rush hour. Due surcharges.
