How's it working out for you?
Do you think I'm driving without surge?

It's pax app if you didn't notice...

I would request to go the next street over just for fun. It would be worth the reaction from the ant who drove 45mins for a 2 min fare if someone took the job. LOL
This guy should maintain acceptance rate lol

It was working great as pax with 50% discount. Now I'm using Ola lol

All the hardcore paxholes seem to have switched over to Ola already for the $20 free rides.
First ping this morning was a decent Ola trip. Dude told me he prefers Ola (but didn't elaborate on why) and has continued to use it after his free vouchers were used up. He says he'll only open the Uber app if there's no Ola nearby or a long wait.

I'm starting to get that vibe from a lot of Ola passengers.

pax say that a lot but they get same cars and drivers while full base fares are almost identical among the 3. uber app seems more reliable than the rest

I concur. Getting the same vibe from Ola passanger. A much better experiance overall.

Quite concerned about a high level of bogus Ola and Taxify bookings this morning though. As soon as you start heading towards pax they cancel. Seeing this happening alot only today.

Must be some greenhub Uber losers causing this. I dont think its Uber drivers (except mayby for tick tock).

Anyone else seeing this today?

Myriad of no shows last night

Tried a night of Ola since I was needing to kill 5 hours in the city

10 trips
5 no shows

Only 2 paid cancels despite waiting 5 mins and clicking customer located

was refering to pax who finished their discounted taxify and ola rides. funny i even took pax on a 1.5 taxify surge while uber was base fare only, no way that was a cheaper ride than uber, not my job to educate them how to shop around
Oh but some base ants on here tell riders to change addy to save money......

Getting serious (not that you're not) but since I started with Ola, I've found the pickup destination does not always match with pax location. Happened a few times. Navigator (Google maps) states one location yet pax is a distance away.

Maybe that's why the no shows. While Ola is getting their act together, I've started phoning pax to arrange pickup location if I cannot see them. All they have to do is keep their mobile on. I've found Ola trips to mostly be of a reasonable distance - probably because it's very cheap for pax at the moment.

I'm off to Ola meeting in Pt Melbourne tomorrow afternoon to discuss this and a few other bits.

They are new and have lots to learn.
