  1. Advice
    May I suggest on the Uber App to detect whether if a location is a restricted area (military, state, or US Gov't Property). When the app detects a restricted area (Google can detect), it can ask If the rider has access to the restricted area. When the rider clicks "Yes," the app can direct the...

    Veteran = past military service Has anybody verified their veteran status with ID.ME and have the badge on their profile? It says there is a way to do it via the app but I don't see any "affiliations" in the settings page. I have used ID.me for others things and it works just fine. Uber also...

    I recently gave a Lyft ride from Scott AFB to St. Louis. The passenger pickup took a long time because you have to go through the security gate and they take your license and call somebody to get approval then they search your car and then they let you go pick up the passenger. Note that they...

    I can understand the licensing process but what purpose do these TLC Agents serve? Honestly, I think of them as a classic example of 'Big Liberal Government'. Is there nothing better these losers can do in society? They offer no economic value or benefit. NYPD could easily perform their...

    Just ran across this article and am curious if anyone is aware of this commission discount. "Uber takes less of a commission for military-veteran driver"... https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/my-dad-became-an-uber-driver-170616718.html may be just a rumor but it MAY be a secret discount that...

    Have any other drivers noticed a drop in ratings after driving a few military riders? Harman and ADFA/Duntroon. An Army officer insisted that Uber had their rating system wrong and that he was right. So many defence personnel rarely give above 4 stars. I am thinking of refusing to take...

    Hi, I'm new to posting but have been a avid reader for the past month or so. So last night (New years eve) I had 2 military passengers (Army) who requested a ride from Waikiki and wanted to go to Schofield barracks; which is roughly a 25 mile, 45 minute drive. I usually prefer the longer rides...

    Okay... I've been working the Southside these past few days (avoiding HU for a while) and have had to drop Pax off at Norfolk Naval Shipyard and NOB at the gates. Both deny access for UBER, however I can get on at Ft Eustis easily (with a vehicle search). Question.... Is it because of fees or...
