Sometimes Footwear limits your ability to walk on public streets. Some of us can't wear tennis shoes on the job

Wear comfortable shoes to walk in and change into more "appropriate" footwear once you get where you're going? Backpacks and reusable bags do work wonders.

Picked up a girl (20's) last night around 8pm in Pasadena at the Vons on Colorado. She was going like half a mile. Told me that she was walking and a block into it a car almost ran her over. The lady in the car yelled that it was the pedestrian's fault. My passenger turned around and walked back to Von's and requested an Uber.

I told her, Smart...

Just wondering...

All these short rides...

What were pax doing, to go only two miles, before Uber???
Most probably people used to walk it or asked a friend to take them. I think it's great that passengers can get a ride a few blocks, now. It makes L.A. a better place to live/visit. In NYC one can hail a Taxi from almost any where for these shorties. IF Uber would pay us a proper minimum fare we'd LOVE these shorties...not the passenger's fault. TK be the villain here...

I agree, and if they make us wait 5 minutes instead of being on the curb, it only makes it worse.
This really is the #1 sucky part of driving Uber/Lyft...besides the under a dollar a mile, oh yeah, and having to pay all our own costs...and well, the .... nvm.....yup.
