As a transit employee I definitely can’t stand the horrible drivers of Uber or Lyft

For other apps I have also disabled auto updates and just do it manually once in a rare while. I agree that it can be very annoying to get all the notifications. You can also disable some or all notifications for individual apps.

What I am sick of is every Uber or Lyft-stickered vehicle on the road failing to signal, can't stay in the lines of their lane, and driving erratically, CRAZY ERRATICALLY.

I am sick of their new TV ads where they proclaim they are a new, improved company with a new boss.

Actions speak louder than words.

honestly how they passed through the cracks and do not have to get the same licensing as taxis is crazy to me.
The whole "ride sharing" may have started as that but now most of them do it as a ful time job which is a taxi service...
