    Hi Guys & Gals, I’m new to the whole PH thing (I started in January), being a full time postgrad student, I thought it would be great flexibility as I studied. I didn’t really manage to get into the flow of it all when this pandemic hit and now I’m at a loss as to what to do. I’ve got no...

Then will be riding with Ola pax and find on Uber that a pax is waiting for me. Again do not have auto accept on. Am forced to...

    Hi everyone, Long story short, on Saturday I forgot to have my CPV sign on my car and the cops pulled me over (I have no idea how they figured out I was an Uber driver). And so I kept it relaxed and accepted what I did and the policeman was really chill as well and told me the fine shouldn't be...

    I completed 8 trips within a day but Ola wouldn't honor the rewards of $40. Does anyone else have this kind of problem with Ola?

    Been driving with OLA since January. But just the other day they offroaded me because I don't have a DL with the T condition on it. Yet they have my Driver Authority card! Surely they have access to the pointtopoint portal to verify me? I went to the RMS and paid $27 to get my licence...

    Until recently, Queanbeyan-based drivers were unable to be rideshare drivers in the ACT or even in Queanbeyan itself. That has now changed. I am now aware of at least one case where a Queanbeyan-based driver is legally rideshare driving in the ACT. These drivers need first to obtain public...

    I was at the airport waiting today, due to a screw up, Uber thought I had declined a ride request and made be go offline. But on ola IIhad moved from 20-25 to 10-15, so I thought I might remain there hoping to get Ola request. On Uber I got booted to the back I am 46-50. So after waiting...

    I noticed on their app you can only browse back a few weeks. When you log into their app it takes you to the dashboard which is used to check your progress when you sign up. But there is no link to reports like with Uber. Is their anyway to check older trips that I have missed.
