    They're just cab services who don't want to play by the rules. And I just feel uncomfortable in someone's private car, someone I don't know and whose insurance might not cover me if there's an accident. If I need a ride, I call a regular cab.

    Im in Australia, I can use Uber anywhere i travel.. when im in America, i only use lyft if i get a free ride coupon...
    Lyft needs to attract recurrent spending from tourists.. Being laser focused on America is actually hurting their potential market share.

    As a former cab driver I would never take either of them but that is just me. I have friends who take it and tell me its cheaper than a cab and being it is the persons car your riding in it was probably a nicer car than your average taxi. But, and I'm wondering why the cab companies aren't complaining, though they work very quietly with local governments so watch out, or the state isn't trying to get fees and driver checks that Uber & Lyft don't have? Drivers have to get licenses or medallions in some places from the local city hall and pay a fee yearly to update that license. They also can lose that license if they get caught doing something illegal, like drugs or others, even if off duty. The other drivers have no such license or check to my understanding. The taxi companies have to pay taxes to operate for many different reasons according to local rules and ordinances. The pay road usage and pollution fees and all kinds of other costs U & L don't have. If and when these fees get added and their drivers have more expenses than just a flat fee exchange per ride things will change especially for the companies. If they aren't making money now these state/city rules any taxi company has will definitely drag these new entity's under. Hers just one example. www.spokesman.com/stories/2018/dec/10/lyft-uber-drivers-will-have-to-pay-new-fees-follow/

    I find it insane they still can't profit, even after bypassing taxi laws and regulations, even after contracting much of their workforce instead of having entirely employees, and especially after being able to hoist car and insurance costs on their "third party" contractors. If they can't even make money after doing all that, something is seriously wrong with this model. They keep uprooting the small city taxi businesses too. It's wreaking havoc! :/

    Don't get me started on the unintended effects of third party delivery services on local restaurants. Not sure if you're taking requests, but if you haven't looked into Zoomer (a now failed third party delivery service) you might find its story fascinating. I know they got bought out by Eat Street, who changed over all the drivers from contracted to employees, and somehow managed to get away with giving them a base wage of under $6 an hour. No lie. I was there.

    I currently drive for Uber, and have driven for Lyft before. One of the main reasons I switched is mostly out of personal preference. Lyft markets itself to drivers almost like you are joining a family-like select circle of valued drivers. When my car broke down in a bad neighborhood, I called for my own tow truck, but I called my "Lyft family" to have ask someone to come out to watch my car while I go use the bathroom (after waiting 3 hours), and all Lyft would do is read off the terms and conditions in a lawyer-esque manner, specifically how they are not responsible for anything that happens to me or my vehicle. So much for "family".
    At least Uber is honest, and makes you understand that you are simply just a driver, which has a certain value, but also is just as expendable as someone else is more than willing to take your place. It's true for both of them, but at least Uber essentially keeps it professional without the sugar coating.

    As a rider I like Lyft because it is cheaper. Sometimes I have issues with the app though, sometimes it takes my money without the driver actually picking me up. I have never had that issue with uber but sometimes I just can’t do the prices.

    lift will win. uber is better marketed but everyone i know that is trying the ride hailing services are signing onto lyft. even in the early days of uber i got the impression they were a shady company with ceos that planned to dump the company with a golden parachute when they got regulated out of existence (which obviously hasn't happened but regardless, i never expected them to make money only for the people in charge to get rich before jumping ship).

    Now that both companies have gone public, you might have to do another video. As you know, what's going to change Uber or and live is government. For some reason the government is listening to the 1% who want to be employees. Most drivers don't want to be employees. Lyft is now temporarily deactivating drivers who Don't accept 90% of trip request. Because they are being forced to pay drivers a certain amount of money like 27 an hour. I could go on and on but I think you will do a follow up on this and find out the truth

  • Paul John Longua

    Somehow Uber has convinced everybody, mostly financial news and TVcliprs, that Uber eats is making them a lot of money. It is not making them a lot of money. I have my Uber eats app on all the time as I am doing my normal Uber driver thing, I get one or two Uber eats orders a week. if I was depending on that for my income I would be living in a cardboard box. So if anyone is investing in Uber because Uber says that they're making $1 million with Uber eats they are making a bad investment. Uber eats is the only products that Uber is lying about. They are not making money with UberEATS. And it is not what it's going to bring them into profit. Trust me

    When I retired in 2012, I needed to cut expenses. Crunched the numbers and my 20 yr old, paid for, 50 mpg Geo was costing me $1500 a yr, not counting repairs. I now get around by walking, bus, and Lyft. The drivers are friendly, they help me with my groceries, and I’ve never had to wait more than eight minutes for a ride.

    Im from India where uber is offering both of thier services that is cab and food delivery. Their cab service is convenient and accessible while keeping the costs low but there are certainly changes or enhancements that can be made to better the service. Coming to the food delivery service, I dont think they are playing it right in the Indian market and it seems as though they tried to expand too fast before developing a sound business model factoring in all the aspects of a complex market like india. Customers here seem to exploiting the promotions they offer which in their view was supposed to bring them more customers, which it did but thier below par quality of service means they will not be able to retain those customers.

    Well, Uber shut down operations in the Asia market and since then Grab took over. It’s basically the Asian version of Uber with GrabFood and courier services as well.
    We are also seeing smaller ride hailing companies emerging but it seems like it’s going to be an endless cycle of tit for tat exchanges between the big guys and the smaller company

    Both lift and Uber are, in my opinion, something to move you around when you have to,
    I don't use them regularly because of how expensive and many people hace resolted in paying a independent cab driver that gives you the ride 2 times cheaper
    The problem is that this is meant for cities and nothing else, outside you barely get anything and owning a car in the US is still a must have

    I mostly use public transprtation to get most places, however, the few times I've personally used either of these services I go with Lyft. I don't really remember why I chose lyft before uber, I just remember me and a collage classmate where talking about the two and he always thought lyft was better cause it respected the drivers more in a way Uber didn't, but I don't know if thats true or not, but I guess I kept it in the back of my mind as I stick with Lyft.

    As a costumer, I despise uber and ubereats. My experiences with both those services have been horrendous, their lack of costumer support is baffling and the amount of time they take to issue a refund after a failed delivery, from the point of view of someone who has worked with Expedia and other similar companies that charge you prior to service, is mind-boggling. Personally, I've boycotted them because I have no time nor energy to deal with a company that sont give a crap about its costumers.

  • Stuart Otis
    Stuart Otis Month ago

    There's nothing that can be done to become profitable. Uber and Lyft for all intents and purposes are identical companies. They both hire independant contractors to drive their own cars and operate essentially an illegal taxi service. The only thing they can compete on is price. If you are looking to take a ride from point a to point b and uber costs $30 and lyft costs $20. You're going to take Lyft 100% of the time. So neither company can raise their prices to achieve profitability because they'll lose alll their customers. If one of them goes out of business then the other company is a monopoly which is illegal. Any shareholder in these companies should sell now. While you still can. Theh will NEVER turn a profit.

  • promontorium
    promontorium Month ago

    I drove for both full time in S.F. I eventually got sick of Uber and did Lyft exclusively. Not because of the company, but the customers. Uber customers were assholes.
    They both foster an image and it gets reflected in reality even if the companies themselves are virtually identical.
    Contrary to popular myth Lyft doesn't "treat" their drivers any better or worse. The pay isn't better. I put treat in quotes because neither company has any real interaction at all.
    My experience was neither company had any interest in what their drivers had to say. Whether they be problems or solutions. They actually pay corporate employees to drive on the side to get information rather than asking full time drivers.
    Corporate employees usually hide their employment when they are passengers. I could ID them as employees by their reluctance to say where they worked. AirBnB are the only other people who would hide their job because they get so much shit. Lyft/Uber employees usually would be as ignorant about what It's like to drive as random tourists.
    I loved the job. A hell of a lot of fun and good experiences. But it paid less than minimum wage. Uber fucked me on their failed lease company the car cost so much money I filed a loss with the IRS two years in row and stopped driving when my debt got so high I could no longer pay any bills.
    Btw. This was long story short. I could easily write 500 pages on these companies.

  • LA2047
    LA2047 Month ago

    Uber and Lyft saved my ass when I was out of work. But now that I'm back to work, I seldom drive. Although as far as a source of pretty quick cash being made on my terms, they're pretty good for that. But there's a few reasons I choose Lyft over Uber. One, Uber just feels a little sneaky. For example, if you drive Uber Eats you realize pretty quickly that unless you live in a densely populated area where you're close the pickup points, UberEats isn't worth the driver's time because you only make money from the point where you leave the restaurant for the delivery until the point where you hand it to the customer. You don't get paid for the time/distance to get to the restaurant or the time it takes waiting for the meals. So imagine you get a meal request that you accept. You turn around and drive 15 minutes, maybe even through toll booths if you're in my city, to get the restaurant. You announce you're an UberEats driver for a pickup. Often it's only THEN that the restaurant starts making the food. So you cool heals for 15 minutes before it's ready. You swipe that you're on the way and only then does the app tell you where you'er going for delivery. Since people don't order food from restaurants on the other end of the county it's a pretty good bet you're within ten minutes of the person's house. As a result you make only about $4-$5 MAYBE for what took you the better part of an hour to complete, all the while missing out on passenger rides that are far more lucrative. And UberEats customers NEVER tip. EVER. Not once in the year or so I did this did one single Eats customer tip, which tells me that they're already on the bubble that UberEats is only barely worth the expense. So.. I turned the Eats option off and only accepted passenger requests. But Uber from time to time, sneakily turns them back on, I'm guessing in the hopes that when a request comes in, the drive will be too kind (or too in fear of lowering his/her acceptance percent, which can affect your being given requests) to refuse.
    Then there's the fact that Uber will often send you out of your way by 20 minutes only to pick up an passenger who's going two miles from the pickup point. Virtually all your pay comes from when the passenger is in the car, so the 20 minutes it took you to get to the passenger AND the 20 minutes it took you to get back to where more passengers are goes unpaid. Oh sure, Uber claims to charge a distance/time premium if the time it takes to service the request is greater than the length of the ride, but the last premium they gave me for this was a whopping $0.45. Forty-five cents for driving ten miles outside the city to pick up a passenger who went maybe two miles, then another ten miles to get back to the populated area.
    Or that Uber is constantly changing the app, making it harder to see and find what you're using to seeing. For example, those Eats requests? Used to be a black box that filled half the screen and flashed at you, clearly displaying the "meal request" logo so you could see what the request was for and refuse if you wanted (especially if Uber had mysteriously re-activated meal requests). Now, the icons are way way smaller and if you're moving at the time, and considering you only have a short period of time to approve the request before it times out, you're likely to mistakenly accept a request you wouldn't otherwise because seeing the request type is a lot less obvious.
    All that makes me wonder if Uber is trying to be underhanded in trying to improve its revenue stream. As a concept the companies are great, but in practice Lyft seems way more honorable than Uber.

    In terms of the either of the companies becoming more profitable, well, Uber might need to cutback on a few services and lower their prices, while Lyft could work more on expanding.

    I prefer Uber because they were in my area first. I do get percentages off rides from time to time. Ranging from 30 to 50%. I have gotten to know some of the drivers in my area, which makes me comfortable.

    DoorDash is better then UberEats
    Sure Uber eats shows mostly in the entire menu of every restaurant but they’re much more expensive and the app has glitches beyond repair i’ve been banned on Uber Eats several times for an unknown reason not even the people that fix my account can figure it out on top of that my address is shown wrong on the app
    But DoorDash on the other hand is much cheaper and less you order from more places for example the only fast food place on Uber eats is McDonald’s for some odd reason and they always get the order wrong but DoorDash feels more personal if there’s something wrong in your order the person orders it themselves and they will call you if they have an item missing my address is always right and there’s barely any mistakes not only is McDonald’s on there but there’s several different McDonald’s on there as well as Burger King and every other well-known company taco Bell you name it but Uber eats literally has nothing it’s honestly horrible I’m guessing whenever I order from Uber Eats my order goes through the actual restaurant and then someone picks it up but DoorDash my order is sent to somebody to buy the food for me which is so much more easier especially since it’s at a cheaper price

    I use both and drive for both. I prefer to use Lyft because I always get much better and friendlier drivers than with Uber. And Lyft is almost always cheaper.
    However I don't really have much of a preference driving for either of them. It just doesn't feel worth my time. As soon as I have an alternative I will stop doing both. Something to mention though is that Lyft does feel ALOT more caring. They sent me a very nice quality jacket when I hit my 1000th ride and they also sent me their amp which I much prefer to the stickers(never put any on my car). Uber has never sent me shit. Also my worst rides have been through Uber and I even had a rider beat up my car which Uber told me I had to pay a $1000 deductible on a $1800 repair if I wanted to use their insurance. But they did however pay me a $250 inconvenience fee for that issue which was better than nothing I guess.
    All in all it can help u out of a jam in this unpredictable job market.

    Uber and Lyft BOTH need to stop dropping their prices so low that drivers can only make decent money by driving 12 hours a day or having larger (XL) or LUX vehicles. The vast majority of drivers make less than minimum wage after expenses are deducted. As your video said, initially Uber cost MORE than a cab, but people STILL USED IT because it had better cars and was more reliable. Focus on THAT (being BETTER than the competition) and raise rates. Let the cheapskates take the damn bus. We drivers are tired of running our cars ragged for people who don't appreciate it and who feel entitled to get in our cars and make a mess or make us wait for 10¢ (or less!) per minute while they go through the drive-thru or "run in" to a store. Some of these people leave their stuff in your car so you can't end the ride and leave - and SOME of them even leave their KIDS in your car!!! It's insane.

    Both lyft and uber raise their prices when you become a frequent repeat customer. ( at least that has been my experience ). I use which ever quotes me the lowest price but will always avoid them if possible.

    In my (admittedly limited) experience, I've found Lyft to be significantly more reliable than Uber. The last time I tried to use Uber, I tried to request a ride to my local airport, and absolutely nothing happened. No request was sent to drivers, no error message was displayed to me, nothing. I then switched to the Lyft app, and I had a ride in five minutes.

    Uber is spreading themselves way too thin by expanding the different types of companies they owned and lift spends way too much goddamn money on marketing.

    In my area Lyft is whooping the snot out of Uber, former taxi drivers after a review period are getting preferential priority.
