All About Uber Express Pool Service

 

Uber continues to dominate existing and new markets with variety of services tailored to suit the needs of customers. Selecting an Uber service to use is largely dependent on figuring out which one of the available services you can afford. Uber’s mid-tier priced services include the UberX, UberXL and UberPOOL; with UberPOOL being the cheapest. UberPOOL allows two or more riders to share a ride with the fare split into fair shares for all passengers. To use the service, select UberPOOL and set your pickup location and destination. You’ll see a guaranteed fare in the app. Riders would most likely get matched with another rider traveling the same way. Whether or not you are connected with another rider, you’ll always pay the guaranteed fare.

Now, Uber has introduced Uber Express Pool modeled after the UberPOOL service with some changes. The service first piloted in San Francisco and has now spread to 6 more cities: Los Angeles, Washington D.C, Denver, Miami, Philadelphia and San Diego with the hope of spreading to further. Uber Express Pool

 

How does Uber Express Pool work for riders?

With Uber Express POOL, passengers will be asked to walk to a pick up location or be dropped off in a dropoff point close to their destination. This is an effort to make the POOL routes more direct. Riders around you will be asked to wait for a few minutes at the pickup location. Riders will also split the fare just like UberPOOL. It is about 25 – 50 percent cheaper than the UberPOOL service.

Bear in mind that the UberPOOL option is still available and riders can select whether to be picked up from their homes using UberPOOL; or walk to a pickup location with Uber Express POOL.

 

What is in it for drivers?

Unlike UberPOOL where drivers have to drive to different pickup locations, the pickup location is just one spot. According to Uber, “you’ll earn the new flat fare for every added pickup stop, in addition to your usual POOL rates.”

 

Conclusion

At this rate, Uber is competing with public transport rates. It is even modeled after public transportation where riders walk to the bus stop to wait for a bus. Now riders have a pre-determined pickup spot where they wait for a few minutes for the Uber driver to arrive. The service is better that public transportation because it is a more comfortable way to ride.

Uber is seeking to make the cost of transportation dirt cheap making it possible for everyone to ride the Uber way.

All About Uber In Lisbon, Portugal

 

Over the years, Uber has experienced push-back as they launched in certain cities. These push-backs came in form of protests by local taxi drivers, bans and even fines from local police. Uber in Lisbon, Portugal is not left out. In 2016, Lisbon taxi drivers staged protests that resulted in traffic gridlock in the city. Local taxi operators were unhappy that rideshare companies like Uber were exempt from certain transport regulations.

Through all these, Uber has either stood its ground or retreated. In Taiwan, Uber stopped operations after it was banned for operating illegally. The ride share giant later resumed operations after it came to terms with state laws.

In France, Uber’s service UberPOP was quickly banned by the French government due to the unfair competition. The UberPOP service allowed non-professional drivers to drive with Uber, and when they were fined by authorities, Uber stepped in and paid the fines.

Meanwhile, regular taxi drivers were required to undergo formal training. This strategy adopted by Uber prompted an anti-Uber protest in cities in France that quickly evolved to Guerrilla warfare between regular taxi drivers and Uber drivers in France as taxi drivers flipped over and burnt Uber cars.

In Portugal, thousands of taxi drivers united and brought traffic to a crawl prompting local police to be on standby in case of violence. In late 2017, Uber drivers staged a protest citing the unfair fines meted on them by local police in Portugal.

It remains unclear if Uber has been declared legal in the city but the service continues to operate.

 

Drive With Uber in Lisbon

Driving with Uber in Lisbon is not complicated. Follow a few steps while deciding on a service that suits you and you are well on your way to earning money on your schedule.

 

The ‘Age-Factor’

Before you can drive with Uber in Lisbon – Portugal, you must know that Uber takes its age policy pretty seriously. This age policy varies for different cities. To join Uber as a driver in Lisbon, you have to be at least 21 years old. If you meet this requirement, please proceed to fulfil the steps listed below:

 

STEP 1 – Ready Your Documents

  • Must have a photo (clear headshot)
  • Drivers must provide valid driver’s license
  • Drivers must pass a screening process (details below)
  • Drivers must have an accepted vehicle (check below for additional info)
  • A TNC License.
  • At some point during registration, you would also have to take your car through vehicle inspection at an Uber-approved auto shop or Uber activation centre in your area
  • Vehicle insurance document (if you already have a car you intend to use)
  • You (driver) must be the holder of the above, or at least a listed driver
  • Ensure the vehicle registration number is listed
  • Documents must clearly show a valid expiration date

 

Note-It is essential to upload very clear pictures (jpg format typically has the least issues) in which all of the numbers and information on the pictures are very visible.  The name on the documents must match your official birth name and the name you provide on the Uber signup page.

STEP 2 – Signup

After you have gathered these documents and met the above requirements, you can move to the next step which is to signup online. The documents that you have gathered are what you would have to submit online. You can go here to sign up with our special referral link. This link redirects to the Uber official signup page.

 

STEP 3 – Uber Background Check and On-Boarding Process

Uber will typically take between 2 to 4 weeks to perform their background checks. Specifically, they will take the documents provided by the intending drivers in Step 1, and do the following:

  • A comprehensive criminal background check
  • Check to see if you have a clean driving record (to be sure that your license has never been revoked for any reason).

Subsequently, you will be tested on all of the general knowledge that Uber drivers are expected to have. You can prepare for this by asking already-employed Uber drivers for advice on what you should know for these tests. It is expected that as an aspiring Uber driver in Lisbon, you should have great knowledge of the routes in Lisbon without relying a great deal on maps. This knowledge is a must have for every intending Uber driver. After these tests, there will be a few more interviews and some onboarding sessions.

 

STEP 4 – Get an Uber Approved Vehicle

It is important to note that Uber has various services which require different types of vehicles. You should decide on which of the services you are interested in before buying a car (if you do not have one). See the section below on “Selecting an Uber Service” for more information. Your car will be rejected if it has major cosmetic damage or it is salvaged (was involved in a major accident and had to be fixed with parts from other vehicles or rebuilt). There might be some extra requirements (besides the general) depending on the type of Uber service you choose.

 

Selecting an Uber Service

Selecting an Uber service is largely dependent on figuring out which one of the available services you can afford. You have a choice between the non-commercial UberX, UberGREEN and the commercial UberBLACK.

UberX is the mid-tier priced Uber service, and it also gets the most patronage from Uber passengers across the globe for this reason. This is the category I would recommend starting out with.

With UberBLACK, riders should expect to be picked up by professionally trained drivers who dress to suit the service. Drivers in this service are held to high standards. It is the most expensive and classiest service with black high-end vehicles. This service always has a limited number of cars operating in cities. Vehicles under this service include Acura: RDX, RLX, TL, TLX, RSX, Toyota: Land Cruiser, Sequoia and others.

UberGREEN involves the use of electric cars in a bid to reduce carbon footprint in the environment.

 

What to Do if Your Vehicle Does Not Fit Uber Requirements

If your personal vehicle does not fit the requirements that are necessary for an Uber vehicle, it’s not a problem. You do not necessarily have to buy a fancy new car – a used car that meets the requirements of your selected service should do. However, many people tend to invest in a new car before driving professionally with Uber in Lisbon. This isn’t a bad idea if you have the funds. Please see the “Nice to Know” section below for due diligence you should probably carry out if you intend to buy a car specifically for Uber. You also have the option of renting an Uber Car through recommended Uber Rental Partners. You can find out more once you begin the online registration process here: SIGNUP ONLINE.

7 Tips for the First-Time Car Buyer

 

 As a first-time Car Buyer, the process can be nerve-wracking. To drive for Uber, you will need a vehicle and there is no harm in doing research before you get one.  In this post, our guest writer Lauren Bricks will be sharing useful tips to apply before you buy your desired car.

 

When you’re about to buy a car for the first time in your life, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the pressure of doing it right. After all, you are a first-time car buyer, and you would want to spend that hard-earned money on something that is worth it.

To help you make an informed decision, here are seven first time car buyer tips that you might find useful.

 

1. Do your research

It’s good if you already have a car in mind. However, you might want to do more research first. For all you know, there are dealerships near you that are selling the same make of car, but in a much better condition, and with a lower price tag.

If you’re still car-hunting, take the time to scour all the new or used car dealers in your area. You can also go online and read reviews of vehicles, as well as ratings of dealerships so you’ll know their reputation or if the customer service is any good, among other things.

 

2. Do not buy on your first visit

Once you’ve pinpointed a car dealer, pay them a visit and check out what’s available. But whatever you do, don’t immediately snap one up on your first visit. Considering how dealerships inflate their prices, you need to play a little hard-to-get. Once you’ve established that you’re a bit of a tough customer, it will be very likely that the dealership will offer you a better deal.

 

3. It’s all in the timing

If you visit a dealership towards the end of the month, the chances of getting a great deal are better, simply because dealers have to meet their monthly quotas. As far as they’re concerned, a sale at a lower price is better than no sale at all. First-Time Car Buyer

4. Consider a used car

A brand-new car is good, but for a first-time car buyer, a used car makes for a great first car. Used cars are less expensive, are already depreciated, and don’t require high insurance coverage.

 

5. Check what’s under the hood

Sometimes, the excitement of buying your first car gets the better of you when you see one that you fall in love with immediately. However, it’s never good to buy a car just because you like the way it looks.

If you know anything about cars, then you should check under the hood. If you don’t, maybe you can bring along a friend or a family member who does. You should also check the interior of the car and see the condition of the upholstery, car stereo installation, among other things.

 

6. Don’t be pressured to buy

Sellers and dealers know a first-time buyer when they see one, and they will do and say whatever they can to get you to buy a car at a price that puts you at a disadvantage.  If you think you’re likely to be swayed by all that sales talk, bring a level-headed friend or relative to help you deflect pushy dealers and sellers.

 

7. Take the car for a test drive

A test drive is a must when you’re buying a car, whether used or brand new. When test-driving, drive the car like you’ve already paid for it. Drive at different speeds, test the brakes, check how well it hugs the turns, run the AC at full blast, or do just about anything you want to do with it.

Hopefully, the tips above can help you out as a first-time car buyer.

Top Smart Companions To Your Uber App

 

Uber is a comfortable way to ride for cheap. Request a ride using the Uber app downloaded on your phone, select a service and then wait for your driver to arrive. The Uber service is convenient and you can relax while the driver worries about getting you to your destination in record time. However, Uber doesn’t have all answers to your travel questions. This is why it is important to have backup apps that can act as companions to the Uber app. These backup apps are must-have apps that will help you travel smartly. See them below:

 

Kommen  uber app

The Kommen mobile app is the best option for people who want to book Uber ahead as they travel to different cities. Uber doesn’t allow you schedule a ride ahead in every Uber market and this is where the Kommen app comes in. Kommen is an android based app that lets you schedule Uber 15 minutes ahead to 30 days away. Download the kommen app by visiting http://www.trykommen.com/. Once this is done, log into the app with your Uber app sign on details. Follow the easy prompts and schedule your Uber ride as needed.

 

Passenger For Uber

This app is great for workaholics who do not have their phone handy. This app is simply Uber for your Mac. Download passenger which saves a shortcut on your Mac’s menu bar. This way, you don’t have to leave your computer while working. Request an Uber mid work and even work till the last minute. Since Passenger is integrated with the official Uber API, you will receive a notification once your ride arrives.

 

Waze

I remember using an Uber and the driver told me that the GPS function on his phone wasn’t working. We ended up stuck in traffic. It’s important to have apps that can show you the best routes to take and get you to your destination in the shortest time. With Waze, get real time updates about traffic, accidents, roadwork and ways to skirt delays on the road due to tips given by other Waze app users. For an optimal road experience, Waze uses your location to help you navigate the road.

What To Do When An Uber Rider Damages Your Vehicle

 

It is true that passengers are the life line of your Uber business; but what do you do when they cause you more harm than good? Before we explore this dilemma, every Uber driver needs to know that passengers can make or mar your Uber business. An Uber rider expects professional service from drivers at all times and drivers need to meet this expectation. Satisfied passengers will guarantee repeat businesses and help keep up your ratings.

Note that Uber drivers can be reported and terminated from the service if there are passenger reports of misconduct on the part of the drivers.

There are instances where as an Uber driver, you feel helpless and this can occur when a passenger damages your car. What is the next course of action? Uber Rider

Well, see below a few steps to take when an Uber rider damages your vehicle or makes a bad mess that will need significant cleaning.

 

Make an Official Report to Uber

Do not take the law into your hands. Make a report to Uber if the situation goes beyond the normal wear and tear.

According to the Uber website, “you may be eligible for an inconvenience fee of up to $250 based on the extent and nature of the damage.” Also, Uber will also help you when you make those insurance claims so that your car is fixed.

To back up your report, you must do the following:

 

  • You must make your report within 3 business days of the incident.
  • Take clear photos of the damage and make an accurate description of the accident. This is where dash cams are important. This will help the uber driver provide video recordings of the incident.
  • Get your car mechanic to provide a rough estimate of what the repair will cost within 5 business days of the incident.

 

If a mess that requires significant cleaning was made, you must do the following:

  • Take a picture of the mess and report this to Uber within 3 working days of the trip.
  • Uber will review the mess and send you a flat fee to cover the cleaning if it is deemed appropriate.
  • In other cases, if the rider is found responsible for the mess, Uber will contact the Uber rider and the rider will be charged the cleaning fee.
  • Make sure you provide accurate and sufficient proof to back your claims or you may not be reimbursed for your trouble.

 

Conclusion

Uber is making no promises in this case. Not every report made is found to be with merit. However, Uber is reassuring drivers that they will do their best to ensure the cost of the repairs and cleaning is not borne by the driver.

Uber Elevate – Flying Taxis To Become A Reality

 

There is a reason why Uber continues to dominate the transportation industry; and not just because it’s a pioneer in the rideshare industry or the impressive number of drivers signed up under the Uber service. Uber remains a force to be reckoned with due to its continuous ability to evolve while introducing new variants of rideshare. Uber’s services range from the mid-tier UberX service to UberBLACK – the most expensive and classiest service with black high-end vehicles. Between these services are the UberXL – the 6 passenger version of UberX; UberSELECT – the service that sits between the UberX and the UberBLACK services; then the UberSUV – which is the 6 passenger version of UberBLACK. In some markets, Uber introduced customized services to meet the unique transport problems peculiar to those cities. In densely populated cities like India, you will find UberGO; a chauffeur driven hatchback.

Now, Uber is set to launch electric VTOL aircrafts by 2020 and will pilot this service in three cities: Dallas, Dubai and Los Angeles. According to the company’s website, “urban air transportation will use three-dimensional airspace to alleviate transportation congestion on the ground. A network of small, electric aircraft that take off and land vertically.”

 

What to know About This service

  • The service is called Uber Elevate
  • VTOL aircraft means Vertical Take-off and Landing
  • Uber signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA that will design an air control system that will manage these “flying taxis”.
  • These aircrafts will utilize electric propulsion to eliminate noise and pollution associated with other commercial aircrafts
  • Possibly autonomous flying taxis
  • Uber is making strategic partnerships to bring this vision to life
  • Uber is aspiring to ensure that riding with VTOL aircrafts will be inexpensive and even cheaper than owning a car.

 

How Uber Elevate Might Work

  • A passenger books a flight via the Uber app
  • Get to a sky port on the roof of a building closest to you
  • Then you will be ushered along with all waiting passengers into the waiting aircraft

 

What we think

It is obvious that these plans are not cast in stone. There will be improvements and eliminations during the design and launch process of Uber elevate. However, it is exciting to imagine the prospect of bypassing the crazy LA traffic and flying across town in a couple of minutes. The merits are impressive; think shorter travel time, cleaner environments and a smarter way to travel.

The possibility of these aircrafts being autonomous might not be well received. It seems very unlikely that a lot of people will allow themselves to be flown by a fully autonomous aircraft.

For now, we will be flying in piloted airplanes and weaving through traffic while we wait and see what Uber will birth come 2020.

Sign Hello To Deaf Uber Drivers Via The Uber App

 

For a company to thrive in the face of change and competition, it must continue to evolve. The ability to adapt to changing climes and improve on services is the reason why Uber remains a leader in rideshare. That Uber has faced tremendous backlash in the media is no news. Uber has experienced a dramatic change in management, tons of law suits and its fair share of push back from governmental bodies. In the face of all these, Uber focused on improving its services to retain drivers and passengers.

In June 2017, Uber launched the 180 days of change to improve driver experience. Uber added more features to its app to benefit its drivers. It introduced friendlier acceptance rate policies, setting arrival times, 6 driver destination filters per day and many more. Among the many features is an update that teaches simple sign language to riders to enable them communicate with deaf Uber drivers or those that are hard of hearing. Deaf Uber Drivers

In a move to improve communication between riders and driver, Uber riders can learn how to sign hello and other basic phrases once they are picked up by deaf Uber drivers or those who are hard of hearing.

 

For Deaf Uber Drivers

The company stated that it has thousands of deaf drivers and hopes to make rides more seamless. In 2015, Uber launched features that aid drivers that are deaf or hard of hearing. These features include:

  • The driver app will signal a new trip request with a flashing light in addition to the existing audio notification
  • Rider notification that the driver is deaf or hard of hearing and an extra prompt for riders to enter their destination
  • Calling feature is turned off in-app and only text-only messaging with riders is allowed. The ability to call a deaf or hard of hearing driver-partner is turned off for the rider and the rider is encouraged to text the driver instead.

 

For Riders

Now, the rideshare giant has added a feature that will educate riders on simple phrases in American Sign Language.

When riders are matched with deaf drivers, they have the option of learning basic ASL signs within the Uber app. Riders can learn simple phrases like “hello” and “thank you” to aid communication. This feature was introduced to increase awareness of the deaf and hard of hearing community.

 

What this means

It is obvious that this feature will improve working relationships between riders and drivers that are deaf and hard of hearing. It will also go a long way in promoting equal employment opportunities for all. The disabled community is a significant part of any country’s workforce. Uber has stated that “thousands of people who drive with Uber are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, and collectively they’ve completed millions of trips.”

It will be a huge service to humanity if similar initiatives are adopted by businesses all over the world.

More About Ofo Bikeshare Service

 

The sharing economy has brought significant improvements to many industries by revolutionizing the way businesses are carried out. At the fore front of the sharing economy is the rideshare behemoth, Uber. With the goal to make global transportation as seamless as running water, Uber found a way to connect riders with drivers who want to use their car as a means of transporting people. Uber’s business model has since been introduced into various businesses like logistics, delivery, and restaurants to name a few.

Ridesharing is gaining strides globally and not only with cars. To ensure seamless transportation, bikes, trucks, and even rickshaws are being used to simplify transportation.

In China, bike sharing startups like Mobike, Ofo and Bluegogo are seeking to improve the country’s transportation system.

More About ofo Bikeshare service

Officially launched in 2015 as a bikeshare service, Ofo was founded in 2014 as a service that was focused on bicycle tourism. After the official launch in Beijing, the service gathered momentum as a bikeshare service with over 20,000 users. In 2016, the service spread to other cities in China. After an influx of funds from China’s rideshare giant Didi Chuxing and the tech firm, Xiaomi, the service spread outside of China in 2017. Now, Ofo has operations in Singapore, U.S, the United Kingdom, and Sydney in Australia.

How ofo works

  • Download the ofo mobile app on iOS and Android

  • Enter your payment method and you are ready to go

Getting a bike

  • Use the map function in the app to find nearby available bicycles.
  • Once you reach an available bike, scan the QR code on the license plate or enter the plate number manually into the app to unlock it then you can begin your ride.
  • Once you finish your trip, park the bike in an appropriate location, make sure you lock it then end the trip in-app.

 

How much does the service cost?

Rides in ofo’s network cost $1/ph. To pay for your trip, you can use electronic payment cards, paypal or even pay with cash. These options vary by location. You can use the in-app wallet feature which allows you add a payment method.

Once you unlock an ofo bike, be aware that the ride meter automatically activates and starts’ running until the ride is completed in app. You can rent the bike for as long as you wish.

 

Once a ride is completed, users can park the bicycle “outside of the pedestrian right of way that complies with local laws and does not obstruct traffic” or the company’s “identified ‘Preferred Parking Zones’ (PPZ) for ofo users. In the event that a PPZ is unavailable, you can park at any public bicycle rack.”

 

What this means for users

Bike sharing is a great way to reduce the number of cars on the road especially in cities that are densely populated. It will not only reduce traffic congestion but make the roads safer and the environment cleaner. Now you can get to those appointments on time without fear of getting held up in traffic.
