    Hi all, I lost my phone in an Uber yesterday morning 08:45 (Sunday 26th January) from Caringbah station in Sydney, NSW. Driver was in a Toyota Camry. I've tried contacting the driver (via the Uber help pages) and it goes to voicemail. So this is my last hope. Anyone know drivers around there?

    I picked up this gentleman and his wife in Old City around 1pm today. He was one of those front runner Philadelphia fans that doesn't know jack shit about basketball and is clearly along for the ride. He had the Eastern Conference ALLLLL figured out. Here was his plan: Pax: "Well, we win today...

    A couple young lady riders last week. As they exited, I shine my flashlight back and forth and shout, "Do you have everything?" (When they are out of their seats: Better view) Girl 1, turning away: "Oh yeah, we're set, thank you!" They always say they're set. I insist they actually look...

    Recently I reported a lost item to Uber and they notified me the pax will attempt to contact me. I didn't get requests for the next 60 minutes. I ended up going to the airport waiting in the queue to get my next request. Until dropping off that pax I was getting requests pretty frequently. I...

    Hello, I left a purse full of some very valuable items in an Uber last Saturday night in Austin. I have been back and forth with Uber support, but they won't help me because I wasn't the one who ordered the Uber. I don't even know the name of who ordered me the Uber, but I know every item in...

    Yesterday morning at about 10:30 one of my passengers found keys in the back seat. I had a feeling I knew who left them in my car and figured I would hear from him later in the day. He was an attorney that I picked up in Hollywood and dropped off at the Downtown Courthouse. I assumed that he...

    I have just left my phone in an uber, I have emailed uber and I am waiting for a response. My question is if you leave a phone in the uber and the next customer picks steals it is there any sort of compensation?

    I've seen this issue pop up in other threads and was a little shocked at one driver's post who implied that returning lost items were not his job and the items would just 'disappear' from his car so he wouldn't have to return/inform uber/lyft about it. I think there's better ways of handling...
