mileage calcuations

  1. San Francisco
    With Prop 22 on everyone's mind, here's something to think about: What is your current cost per mile when you consider car payment (rental, lease or loan), gas, and maintenance? With gas at $3.00-plus per gallon, if your car gets 30mpg you're already paying at least 10¢ per mile ($3.00/gal ÷ 30...

    Can anyone tell me if it’s legal for uber to short me on mileage driven, and claim I didn’t take the most efficient route please? I got tired of getting shorted and app support refusing to pay me for taking the quickest route so I started following the uber app navigation to a T and it’s still...

    Do Uber and LYFT send you an end of year statement like a 1099 that has your mileage or just your total income?

    Before people start telling me about apps that track mileage, I'm already aware of them. I use an app by turbo tax called intuit and I enter all miles manually because the auto feature never works properly. Anyway, my question is do I need to list all of the the addresses of the fares? Since...

The area was not surging but decided to knock out trips so I can reach the 75 trips needed to get my $500 referral offer. After I dropped off a short trip that I made $2.40 on, I go a ping for another trip. I...

    Hey there, I'm an graduate student at Columbia Business School doing research on the experience of Lyft and Uber drivers and how third-party technology and services could help improve the overall experience. The project was inspired from watching a family member who drives for Uber and her...

    I've just downloaded the app after reading a blog on rideshare companies. It seems to have some really great features that helps you keep track of mileage for end of year tax issues, as well as a HEATMAP feature that s worth checking out... Plus it shows you your earning info too. Check it...

    Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to Uber here in Charleston SC. I had a weird fare issue with Uber the other day. It was precipitated by a network error that forced me to restart my phone before I could complete the trip. When I checked out the trip summary, I thought it was strange that they...
