    Just moved from North Jersey. Pretty shocked that NO ONE on the south shore uses Uber. Even though I made barely minimum wage in Jersey I had it pretty good....However I am not really NEW to the area. I grew up in Hanover so I am somewhat familiar but have lived away for 15 years. My plan...

    I apparently failed my CORI check for uber (which makes no sense, because I passed it for lyft a few days prior). This is the reason I was given: "The Division has determined that your records demonstrate the following offense, violation, or condition pursuant to 220 CMR 274.21: Suitability...

  9. Advice
    As of April 3rd, no rideshare driver may pickup in Massachusetts until they have passed the Massachusetts Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check, which is more stringent than Uber's background check, but does not require fingerprinting. This also applies to drivers in adjacent states...

    Starting Jan. 1, 2017, mobile ride-hailing companies like Lyft and Uber will implement what the governor's office calls "the most stringent ride-for-hire background check system of any state in the country." The agreements expedite new regulations signed in August by Gov. Charlie Baker, after...

    Hey fellow drivers, I'm conducting this poll to see howany will be willing to STRIKE just 1 day? How much money would UBER lose if just one state didn't drive for just 1 day? How much would Uber lose if all the state went on strike for just 1 day? We either do it all together or we can't...
  19. Insurance
    Brand new to Uber, have not yet even driven. Haven't found a single company in Massachusetts that offers non-commercial rideshare insurance. Have spoken to many agencies and insurers, all say no. USAA supposedly offers "gap" insurance, but I'm not eligible for their coverage, and a few people...

    Even if you are beyond the 30 days from the December 11, 2015 acceptance of Uber's new terms, please send an email to [email protected] with your name & state asking to "opt out" of Uber's new arbitration terms. The arbitration process most often favors the big guy. Attorney advice: Do this...
