Is Uber shoving Uberpool down the rider’s throat? The other day I had a pickup at Powell Street hotel who was going to SFO. He was pissed off that he was already late and he did not want to take the pool. However he had no other option other than Uberpool. At the end of the trip, he said had he known that it was going to take that long, he would have “taken a regular Taxi”. Hey Uber listen. If any time if a rider is saying he would rather have taken a taxi, you are doing something really really really wrong. Please do not shove the Uberpool down riders throat because it is advantageous to you. Even though the other Rider who was going to South San Francisco did not say anything, she seemed pissed off too. Both seemed like business travelers and had a reason to take Uberpool.
