It goes without saying that the cops directing traffic right at that intersection appear to be oblivious or indifferent to the Krispy Kreme congestion.

Low paying part time service jobs with no benefits and massive amounts of welfare is not a success. Plus we now have a new real estate bubble, but this time it's so bad that people are moving to JC not because of speculative investment like before, but because they can't afford anything else! Obama was brought to bring change to DC, he did none. Trump was brought to take on the special interest, his cabinet picks state otherwise.

Oh thanks to all you who tip, since you will get 5 stars from the drivers it's always faster for you to get a ride due to your customer rating.


Oh, yeah... I forgot you are the former Uber driver with an axe to grind.

Nice (conspiracy) theory you got there, buddy. Despite the fantasy you are selling here, the story behind Uber and its cash reserves is well documented. With over $15 billion cash on hand, they can continue to lose 3 - 4 billion a year and make it past 2020 without problems.

NY Times article on their cash reserves and future plans: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/21/bus ... eps-raising-billions.html

Well if I'm taking a ride with a stranger who didn't go through an interview to get the job I would certainly want them to have a clean criminal record, or to get trained on rules and regulations of operating as a taxi, or a vehicle inspection to make sure the vehicle is not falling apart. But cheap asses like you would ride with Charles Manson himself if it meant you got a cheap ride. I wonder when Uber is going to get rid of the subsidies they are currently offering to drivers during rush hour, $2.40 for a fare with a subsidy is ridicoulous and without it not even ex convicts will drive for that.

Can you actually prove any of what you're saying?

I mean... granted, I don't expect you to do your own traffic study. But it seems a bit ridiculous to claim that there is an exponential increase of cars on the road, because you feel like there is more traffic now.

Open your app and see how many cars you have in your area during rush hour.

Those apps don't tell you how many cars stay off the road, because people are using ride shares / taxis instead of driving their own cars around.


Quote:
I did a stint as a driver and stopped after I kept getting paid 3.71 per 25 minute ride and nobody tipped no matter if you gave them treats and excellent service.

So, wait. Ride sharing is fine when you did it, but not now because you were apparently bad at it?

And I know drivers don't get huge compensation, but they certainly do better than $8/hour. (It's closer to $20/hour after costs)

P.S. I always tip taxis / car services etc, when the driver does a good job (which is almost every time).


LOL! Have you driven for Uber buddy?! There is no way you can make that much after expenses unless it's extremly bad weather or something like the Path shutting down with extreme surge. Spoke with many other drivers and confirmed what was hapening to me was happening to them. With Uberpool drivers makes less but Uber makes more since the riders split the fare and the driver does not get extra money for stopping and picking another person up but Uber does gets an extra booking fee for each additional passenger. The booking fee is not paid to the driver. Go read some of the drivers experiences on Youtube or ask a driver next time.

With Lyft I believe it is if demand is really high, with Uber the price you see will be the price you pay unless you go through tolls or cause damage to the vehicle. They recently changed that with Uber. BTW Uber will be offering free Uberpool rides in NYC for small business Saturday. Tip the driver at least a $1 since they absolutely hate Uberpool just go on youtube if you don't believe me.

I have a question regarding Lyft. I recently took one home from Princeton. The fare said $45.00 but I was charged $215.00. I know there are peak times with higher rates but shouldn't that be stated when you agree. I have sent an email to them without any response. I did notice today I was sent an email to rate my driver but nothing about my fare. Has anyone experienced this? Should I have my credit card reject the charge? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Was this during primetime? Did you encounter a ridiculous amount of traffic? Did you vomit in the car or cause any damage? CS is usually helpful so ask for a breakdown of what you were charged.

Do you tip your gas station attendant? Your cashier?

Why not? Can't afford it?
All those are paid minimum wage and considered employs not independent contractors meaning they get benefits and they don't have to pay anything else but for uniforms. You don't tip a server or a regular taxi cab? Can't afford it?

Complaining about customers what it's the brand's policy and/or app that troubles you is misdirected.


So the fact that most of drivers like me were making less than minimum wage and subsidizing your taxi ride is misdirecting my anger? Uber no longer discourages people from tipping so that policy has changed, but the mentality hasn't. Many of the people I took have no problem tipping at a restaurant or tipping a regular cab but when it comes to Uber they don't do it.Only 10% of riders tip on the lyft platform anyway so that mentality has got to change. Uber has also reduce what they pay to driver while upping what they charge the passenger with upfront pricing. Please be a decent human being carry a couple of dollars and tip.


You can tip on a card at a restaurant, you can't with Uber. Like the previous poster, I rarely carry cash as I don't need it. If Uber wanted to encourage tipping, they would easily add it to the app.

If that doesn't work for you, then don't work for Uber.


I already stopped with them but could not stand the fact that I was stuck in traffic on Saturday next to drivers who had the app on and one of the cars was falling apart, they had had to lower standards in order to replace all the drivers who have had enough.

If op is hurt changing the light bulb since it isn't easily accessible, isn't the landlord is on the hook for medical bills? It is in the landlord's best interest to change it, normal lightbulbs that are easily change would be op's problem.

Have you thought of giving up your car and taking public transportation or a taxi service like Uber and Lyft? If you only use your car to do groceries and only go far once in a while, getting rid of your car could be the solution to your parking problems. If you never used Uber, go download the app in the app store or the google play store and use the promotion code jmqwr1c9ue for a free ride (Up to $15). If you never used Lyft, download the app use code JCLISTER for $5 your next 10 rides (Up to $50 of free credit). NJTransit website has a trip planner for you to use for public tarnsportation, or you can use Google Maps to give you directions and transportation options.

The sad thing about this hood it was unpopular just a few years ago, but now people from downtown and NYC have been moving up here, and we also now have a small Hasidim community so shops will be coming soon on MLK and Ocean like bakeries and such


user1111 He/she wants something close to the Path Trains, Bayside park has access to the light rail and will add a little bit of time to the commute and added expense. That "small" hassidic community has bought four properties on my block alone in the last 6 months and they have a complete lock on the foreclosure market in the Greenville/Bergen laffeyette area. The chances of a new buyer like this buying one of the fixer uppers down here is very slim as I had to wait a year to get lucky enough to buy my current property due to heavy competition. And if you haven't checked, $225k is now the listing price for a piece of land in your neighborhood.

The situation right now in my experience.
Downtown: gentrified and overpriced
Heights: gentrified and overpriced
Greenville: overpriced if it's not a foreclosure, lots of competition if it is, and crime is still a problem for many of the parts east of Jfk.
Journal Square: Buy now if for the right price will only increase in value.
McGinley square: buy now if the price is right, will only increase in value.
Bergen Lafayette: buy now if the price is right, crime a problem in certain areas, low inventory in the good parts.
