    I think it would be cool if riders did a boycott too, on the same days, as a show of solidarity for drivers. Riders can use other services on strike days.

    most riders seem to enjoy the low rates a little too much to have some sort of solidarity for riders. Riders would really be protesting for a more expensive service which what they dont want.

    Hmmmm I think riders choose Uber because it's more well known than Lyft. Many riders still have never heard of Lyft. Uber is a 'familiar' brand. And so more convenient. Besides here in USA people drink $2 bottles of water. The cost difference is more substantial between taxis and rideshare but not so much different between Uber and Lyft. So I do believe there are riders that would pay more & be inconvenienced in support of drivers. You are right that those riders would be the exception tho, not the rule.

    Most riders don't even care about the drivers, their too busy screwing us over too. Oh don't ever mention if they ever lose their phone in your car? Only time I'm taking a phone back to a rider now is if its a really hot chick, otherwise I'm throwing it in the dumpster when I get a chance, its not worth my time and too many riders take advantage of your kindness. The way I look at is I am not your parent and I shouldn't have to look after you, your a grown adult so act like one. Can anyone feel what I'm sayin here?

    Uber is all about making there money and the riders are all about taking advantage of the cheap rideshare, these cheap rides are an insult to me, but I do because I have to for the time been. I'm willing to strike for the 2 days .

    AAM i A YEAR LATE ON THIS?..LOL. DARN LETS DO IT AGAIN IF i AM.

    oops caps

    I drive LYFT. I drive UBER when LYFT is slow. I engage EVERY UBER rider with why I prefer LYFT over UBER. The reason: UBER has a corporate policy which does not allow a 'cashless' experience if my rider felt that I have done a superior job and would like to reward me with a dollar tip. UBER is presently valued as a $60B company and won't let their driver's earn a dollar extra on a ride? UBER is arrogant, uncaring and evil. And I will spread the word on EVERY ride until I see a tip option on the UBER app. Rant over.

    Good Job , Uber is evil , but one must remember Uber is like Virgin or Emirates and Lyft is like Frontier or China Air plus as a driver Lyft"s insurance deductible is$2500
    The Uber riders should get the FISH HOOKS out of their pockets and tip cash Give the cheap fucks poor ratings . The ratings system is a meaningless scam anyway
