Why Uber in Philippines Suspended Operations

 

Uber has always been known as a force to be reckoned with. The company is popular for employing a dominating approach as it enters a new city. This stance however, didn’t seem to work for Uber in Philippines. In the past, Uber had taken on state governments in big cities around the world such as Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Austin and Pennsylvania over a number of issues. The company has come under fire for many reasons including fingerprinting drivers, driver classification and even friction with local cabbies. Uber in Philippines

 

Uber in Philippines suspends operations

 

Uber faced similar backlash in Philippines when it came to registering drivers. The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in the country mandated Uber and other rideshare companies to ensure their drivers and partners must apply for permits before registering as drivers. The permits included:

  • PA (Provisional Authority) – is a temporary permit to operate as a TNVS, valid for 45 days and renewable for up to 135 days
  • CPC (Certificate of Public Convenience) – is an official permit to operate as a TNVS, valid for 1 year and renewable for up to 7 years.

Due to the large number of drivers applying for permits, the LTFRB had to deal with backlogs and asked rideshare companies to stop registering drivers so that the backlogs could be cleared. It was reported that the companies refused to stop registering drivers and were fined about $100,000 each. After it appeared that Uber still didn’t comply with stipulated regulations, the company was banned for a month and asked to “cease and desist” operations.

Uber in Philippines went on to suspend its service after the ban, citing the company’s displeasure with the Regulatory Board’s stance.

 

In March 2018, Uber announced that it will be exiting Southeast Asia. The rideshare giant sold its stake in the region to Singapore based, Grab signaling the end of Uber in Southeast Asia. It seemed Uber’s decision to suspend its services in the Philippines is congruent with the company’s sales of its stake in South-East Asia.

 

What we think

 

If you stand to gain more by selling off struggling operations and making strong partnerships, then by all means, do so. Grab has a stronger hold in Southeast Asia where its food delivery, carpooling, cashless payments and bike share services are available in 191 cities. UberEATS and Uber’s ridehailing services will now be available on Grab’s app.

More About Haxi Rideshare

 

By disrupting the global transportation sector, Uber introduced a simpler way to commute without the hassles of traditional taxi hailing. There is a reason why the rideshare behemoth continues to dominate the transportation industry while new entrants scramble to topple Uber’s position. Now, the Uber business model is being incorporated into other forms of rideshare. Uber competitors are forming community based rideshare services to meet the needs of people within a town or city.

Haxi rideshare is one of such community based rideshare services. With Haxi, users who need rides can request rides from registered community drivers.

 

More about Haxi Rideshare

 

The service was officially launched in December 2013 by Aleksander Soender, Joonas Kirsebom and Robert Daniel Nagy. It was first premiered in Stavanger, Norway as a web based app. In 2014, its mobile application was launched to make for more convenience. Haxi rideshare is based in London with presence in other cities including Norway and Denmark. The service has since grown from 3,000 drivers and 42,000 users in 2014 to over 12,000 drivers and 100,000 users in 2017.

Haxi began as a “supplement to public transportation” but has since become a preferred mode of commuting for its users. Haxi Rideshare

More About The Uber Hands-Free Feature

 

For any rideshare company, rider and driver safety should be paramount. Uber as a pioneer in ridesharing has become a preferred means of transportation for many. Uber drivers and Uber passengers who have signed up to use the Uber service are matched once a ride request is placed. This makes Uber a middleman between these two parties. Uber, in its bid to protect both parties created a plethora of in-app features to protect passengers and drivers.

There is also a need to keep updating and renewing these safety features. This is to ensure that all parties involved feel some level of comfort in knowing that there are features designed to ensure safety. In September 2018, Uber introduced more safety features.

Uber announced that, “we’re raising the bar on safety by unveiling new features that will help protect all our customers and the information they entrust to us.” These features will include ride check, a feature that helps ensure that all parties are okay in the event of a crash; driver emergency button; address anonymization and hands-free pickups. Uber Hands-Free

In this post, we will shed more light on the Uber hands-free feature.

 

Uber Hands-Free Feature

It is important for drivers to focus on the road ahead while driving. Many accidents have occurred on the road due to text-driving which is why Uber is trying to reduce distractions that Uber drivers may face. With the introduction of the hands-free feature, Uber will be testing voice activated commands to ensure seamless pick-up of riders.

This way drivers can communicate with riders without taking their hands and eyes off the wheel. The Uber hands-free feature will allow drivers accept trips on the go.

 

Conclusion

The Uber hands-free feature is a welcome development. It’s important that drivers adhere to road rules while keeping other road users safe. It’s good to see Uber taking a firmer approach to driver and rider safety. We look forward to more updates from Uber.

Drive With Uber In Missouri

 

Uber has experienced push-back from Missouri legislators in the past for its lax nature when it comes to registering drivers. House reps have pushed for stricter laws to regulate rideshare companies in the state and although it didn’t yield much results, Uber remained dedicated on focusing on the economic impact its service will have on the state. Now the company now offers its services in both Northern and Southern Missouri.

If you want to drive with Uber in Missouri, this post is for you. Driving with Uber is one way to earn additional income.  It affords flexible hours and a chance to make good money on your own schedule. Follow the steps below and you will be well on your way to become an Uber driver in Missouri.

 

The ‘Age-Factor’

 

Before you can drive with Uber in Missouri, you must know that Uber takes its age policy pretty seriously. This age policy varies for different cities. To become an Uber driver in Missouri, 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 aged 21 or 22 must have (at minimum) 3 years of valid licensing in the USA
  • Drivers aged 23 (and up) must have at least one year of valid licensing in the USA
  • Drivers must pass a screening process (details below)
  • Drivers must have an accepted vehicle (check below for additional info)
  • 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 center 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
  • Uber accepts both official and temporary registration documents.
  • The vehicle does not need to be registered in your name to qualify.
  • 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.

Uber In Missouri

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 in Missouri Background Check and On-Boarding Process

Uber conducts a detail criminal and background check on all intending drivers. Specifically they will take the documents provided 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 Missouri, you should have great knowledge of the routes in the city you want to drive in 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 on-boarding 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. For Uber in Missouri, please note that your vehicle has to be a 4-door vehicle and must be 15-year-old vehicle or newer.

 

Selecting an Uber Service

Selecting an Uber service is largely dependent on figuring out which one of the available services you can afford. In Uber in Missouri, you have a choice between the non-commercial UberX, UberXL and UberSELECT. UberX, UberXL and UberSELECT are the lower level services with more commuters – since they are affordable.

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. UberSELECT can be found in the same class as the UberX services but it is a step above the UberX. UberSELECT vehicles are classy entry level luxury cars (but not as nice as UberBLACK vehicles). Drivers in this service have ratings of 4.75 and above. UberXL is the 6 passenger version of UberX. It is dominated by inexpensive but nice vehicles that can carry more passengers than the UberX. You can say it is the larger version of the UberX service. Riders who request this service would typically be picked up in vehicles like these: Honda pilot, Toyota Sienna, Chevrolet Traverse, Dodge Durango, Dodge Gran.

 

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 Missouri. 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.

 

STEP 5 – Uber Cell Phone

Once you have completed the preceding steps, you will have an option to receive an Uber-issued cell phone which will have the Uber driver application installed on it to give you access to Uber riders. However, if you wish to use your own smart phone, that is perfectly fine. You can read more on how to download the Uber driver app here.

 

Nice to Know

If you want to drive with Uber in Missouri, it is important to know that you will have to bear the cost of car related expenses like fuel, car maintenance, insurance costs, car depreciation, Uber royalties and other maintenance related expenses. If you want to assess the profitability of Uber – whether as a one man business (a sole Uber driver); or as an Entrepreneur with multiple Uber cars in his/her fleet, then you need to download either of our Uber Kits at the top right corner of the pages below:

 

That’s all you need to know about becoming an Uber driver in Missouri.

 

 

What To Know About Flywheel Rideshare

 

The Uber business model for operating a ridesharing business has been copied by many other budding companies. The model seems to work as evidenced by the company’s growth over the years.

Now, this model is being used to meet the needs of local taxi companies. Flywheel rideshare service is pooling local taxis in one place via the Flywheel app to help riders request taxis conveniently.

What To Know About TARTA Park –N-Ride

 

Over the years, rideshare has taken on various forms but still with the same aim; to simplify transportation while reducing greenhouse emissions and traffic congestion in our cities.

Accepting Uber Rides: Long vs Short rides?

 

Uber as a ridesharing platform allows registered drivers on the platform connect with riders in a seamless on-demand fashion. Riders place ride requests via the Uber mobile app and are then connected with nearby Uber drivers. For Uber drivers, the aim is to provide service and earn as much as possible on the road. In one of our posts, we shared useful tips to help Uber drivers maximize their stay on the road. We shared how to find the highest UberX fares and also increase your revenue.

In this post, we will be scrutinizing which is better when accepting Uber rides: long rides or short rides? We will weigh the pros and cons of these rides and you can decide which will suit you best.

There are couple of factors that affect your decision to chase certain rides. As an Uber driver, your two primary motivations: making money or meeting people should always be at the forefront of your decisions. Remember, the aim is to make money and in the following situations, long or short rides shouldn’t matter.

Chasing both long rides and short rides Accepting Uber Rides

 

In some cases, it will be wise to chase both kinds of trips. We will discuss these cases below:

 

Living in a small city

If you drive for Uber in a small city, there is no doubt you’ll have to deal with frequent short rides. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing since undertaking short rides gives you more time to accept more ride requests. So, if you find yourself making a lot of short trips, target using that time to do more rides and you will get good returns for it. After all, more trips = more money.

 

Slow days

There might be frequent down times in some small cities. It would be unsafe to think that you can drive for Uber full-time in a small market. You may quit your day job and then realize that being online all day does not guarantee receiving ride requests at a particular time of the day. Therefore, it is advisable to keep your day job and make extra income driving part-time.

 

What if you had a choice when accepting Uber rides  whether long or short rides?

 

After discussing with some drivers, the decision tilted towards long rides for the following reasons:

  • Most short rides are within the city and slow flow of traffic puts a strain on cars. This means having to service the car more often.
  • Having to deal with bad drivers is very distracting
  • Longer rides generally equal more money
  • Not dealing with too much passengers in a day (this is great for drivers who like to keep to themselves)
  • Relaxing trip back to base
  • Use the Destination filter to pick up passengers on your way back

 

What we think about accepting Uber rides

 

It’s a matter of personal choice and understanding the pattern in your city. If you want to do short rides that will yield as much profits as possible, target hotspots during the day and at night. For long rides, hanging around airports are a great way to get long trips.

Find out what works for you and don’t be afraid to mix things up.

Try Zum Rideshare for Kids

 

The Uber business model for operating a ridesharing business has been copied by many other budding companies. The model seems to work as evidenced by the company’s growth over the years. As much as ridesharing is convenient and affordable, rideshare companies seem to have a problem with guaranteeing safety.

The rideshare model has been adopted in various forms to cater for not just adults alone but even kids as well. It is important to prioritize safety when dealing with kids and this is where companies like Zum rideshare come into play. Rideshare giants like Lyft and Uber have faced multiple lawsuits stemming from driver misconducts. They are also not allowed to transport unaccompanied children.

Creating a rideshare platform that caters to kids is a huge undertaking; however Zum rideshare is willing to take up the mantle. Zum Rideshare

 

More About Zum Rideshare

 

The company was founded in November, 2014 by Ritu Narayan and Vivek Garg. It caters to children and teenagers between the ages of 5 – 17 years. Striving to become the go to “Uber for kids”, parents and caregivers who work full time jobs can now have their kids transported to school without worrying about running late for work.

Schools are not left out as Zum rideshare also partners with local schools to transport kids to and fro daily.

 

How Does Zum Rideshare Stand Out

 

To compete in an already saturated industry, it is important to bring something unique to the table. For now, there aren’t a lot of rideshare companies competing in the “Uber for kids” niche but it’s still important to stand out.

Not a lot separates Zum from the likes of Kango and Hopskipdrive. They all boast thorough driver vetting and safety. However, Zum riders can see all their driver details up to 12 hours before a scheduled ride.

 

How Zum Works For Riders

 

To begin, follow the steps below:

  • Download the app on iOS or Android 
  • Create an account
  • Create a member profile for your kid
  • Enter payment method
  • Then choose to ride now or schedule for later

 

How Zum Works For Drivers

 

Zum drivers are known as Zumers. To drive for Zum, you have to meet some requirements and be willing to be subjected to background checks.

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Have experience working with children
  • Own a 2008 or newer four-door vehicle in great condition
  • Have a clean driving record & pass background check
  • TrustLine approval

 

You will also be required to undergo the following:

  • Fingerprinting
  • Live scan
  • Pass Zum’s 22-point vehicle inspection and certification

 

Please note that new drivers can enjoy up to $500 signing bonus. Drivers can also earn up to $32/ph and choose their own hours.

Bounce Rideshare To Take On Uber

 

Every so often, we hear of companies making an entrance into the rideshare industry in the quest to take on Uber. As a pioneer in ridesharing, Uber has enjoyed enormous success in almost every market it has launched in. The Uber business model for operating a ridesharing business has been copied by many other budding companies. The model seems to work as evidenced by the company’s growth over the years. Now, Bounce Rideshare has its sights set on taking on Uber.

 

More About Bounce Rideshare

Founded by Mike Potter, Bounce was created in 2016 and currently operates in San Diego alone but with hopes of expanding soon. An interesting fact to note about Bounce Rideshare is that Mike Potter had in time past successfully litigated civil and employee rights.

 

What Drivers should know about Bounce

Although it is a rideshare company like Uber, Bounce is doing things differently when it comes to its drivers. Bounce will be compensating drivers a little differently from other traditional rideshare companies. The company will be taking into account how much time drivers spend on the road, how well they promote the company and for how long they have been driving for the company.

Bounce is offering the following incentives to drivers: bounce rideshare

  • 75% of what the passenger pays minus the booking fee, with a minimum fee of $4
  • Royalties for drivers and riders referred directly and indirectly (This is more detailed and mind-blowing and will be explained to drivers upon signup)
  • Royalties that come in even when you are no longer an active bounce driver
  • 1000 stock options when they sign up with a 25-month vesting schedule

The list above is by no means exhaustive and frankly a big reason to sign up to drive with Bounce. Many have compared the compensation package to a pyramid scheme. We will let you be the judge of that.

Although Bounce doesn’t destination filter like Uber, it lets drivers know how many miles the rider will be going.

 

What Riders should Know

 

To use the Bounce Rideshare service:

  • Download the app on Play store or the App store
  • Register and enter payment details
  • Request a ride

Riders have the option of adding drivers to their list of “favorite drivers”. This does not guarantee that they will always be matched with favorite drivers but Bounce seems committed to making this happen.

Fares

  • Booking fee – $2.24
  • Per Mile – $1.15
  • Per minute – $.15

UberBODA Launches in Nairobi, Kenya

 

Uber in Africa is proving to be a formidable force.  The company continues to enjoy rapid growth in major Africa cities. Uber launched in Africa in 2012 beginning with Johannesburg. The company has since spread its operations into 14 African cities including Lagos, Dar Es Salaam, Nairobi and Pretoria.

Now, various vehicles are being introduced into rideshare. People do not only have to travel with cars; other options include bikes, scooters, trucks, motorcycles and even tuk-tuks. Uber has since tapped into this shift in rideshare by introducing the new use of motorbikes for transporting riders in cities like Nairobi and Kampala. This service is called UberBODA and it is currently providing an alternative means of transport for Africans and empowering willing drivers who want to use their motorbikes to earn money. UberBODA

 

More About UberBODA

 

The city of Nairobi is prone to traffic and Uber is intent on conveying passengers as seamlessly as possible despite the challenges the city poses. With UberBODA, riders will request the service on the Uber app just like other Uber services like UberX. This motorbike service already exists in Kampala and will compete with other similar services like Taxify’s Boda service and SafeBoda.

 

How UberBODA will work for riders

 

Just like the UberX, riders should expect doorstep pickup and fare estimate. Request your UberBODA and a bike will arrive in minutes. Once you key in your destination, you will be shown a fare estimate and you can decide if to go on with the ride or not.

Fares

  • Minimum fare – Ksh60
  • Base fare – Ksh55
  • Per Kilometer – Ksh14
  • Per Minute – Ksh1

 

Uber also stated that every rider on an UberBODA will enjoy additional insurance coverage. Riders will also be privy to the driver’s details, rating and vehicle registration. This way, they can confirm that the details on the app match with the driver’s upon pickup.

 

How UberBODA will work for drivers

 

Every UberBODA driver must:

  • Undergo training
  • Background check
  • Must possess a valid driving license and third party insurance

Drivers will be equipped with a safety jacket and 2 helmets.

 

Conclusion

 

Although Uber will be facing stiff competition from Taxify and SafeBoda, I doubt the company is fazed. The company is well known for its aggressive mode of taking over territories with operations in over 500 cities across 81 countries of the world. With over 3 million people in Nairobi, I’m sure there is a market for all players.
