    They should pay the drivers a specific wage or wages. Simply to know exactly what's coming in and going out. And maybe make the screening process for the drivers a little bit more difficult, like a 1 month class. Just to ig be on your way to going public sooner apon release, under the belief that you now have the best drivers and a legit business. And now investors will trust you more. Cause you'll have the more steady numbers with a cheaper price in the beginning but price hikes would happen eventually. Also make them pay for there class. Apon completion give em some cash back. And now we have to get a deal in place with fuel companies,such as shell,BP and so on. So that our drivers apon "clock in/sign in",get gas for cheaper prices in exchange for free pairing advertisements or endorsement. Thus boosting awareness of there brand. But I'm rambling...

    Uber and Lyft are simply automated dispatches for cabs. But dispatching is a tiny fraction of the operating cost of a cab service. Their real cost advantage has been their willingness to lose money. There's no reason that should change with the eventual arrival of AVs. Traditional cab services can use AVs too, and they can also use apps to dispatch them. The only way they make money is to charge what cabs actually cost, and the only way they make a lot of money is if they attract almost all the service providers and the customer base. Which anti-competitive law should't allow, so... unless everything goes their way, and they bribe politicians, they will never be tech giants.

But they told me this a while, so it's possible Lyft started that way and changed, but I remember specifically they told me about how much better Lyft was after all those cases of Uber drivers taking advantage of their passengers and ever since then I just don't feel safe in ubers.

    Something interesting about Lyft compared to Uber is that Lyft has drivers capable of transporting wheelchair-bound riders while Uber does not. That segment is a drop in the ocean but I suspect that Uber will continue to not offer that service based on what was stated in their prospectus.

    Hey Company man- I know you tend to stick to American companies or at least companies that are popular in the West, but you should look into Yandex (яндекс) which is Googles only real competition... Well, in Russia. But keep this in mind, Google enjoys a (something like ) 80-90% market share on search in every country that it does business in (so we exclude China) EXCEPT in Russia. where it is more like a 60/40 split between them and Yandex. Basically, every for service google provides, there is a yandex service. Anyhow, there are a few ride hailing services here but Yandex is THE service... From what I am told, there used to be Uber but then Yandex bought 50% of Russian Uber, so now Uber is just Yandex but you can still use the Uber app (a Yandex taxi will actually pick you up). Also, have you done a video on Tata yet? The Indian super giant? Well, it's your show, I'm just shooting spitballs

    Both companies CAN'T make money because will die under legal issues. As both companies are employers and which don't follow their legal obligations. If both companies just match a drivers and passengersand got a fee from the drivers. It would deal with their legal obligations. And driver could set their price

    I use Uber Eats all the time and only use Uber for ride hailing. Never really even considered Lift other than the times I've gotten a promo offer to install the app on my phone and my girlfriend's phone. With Uber I know what I'm getting, and never had an issue. Since the price is the same or more pricey on Lift in my city...why change? Also the Eats app is awesome even if expensive. Everyone has told me that they have had a negative experience with delivery and that their driver did something crazy but outside of for getting a drink (which honestly does happen to me too often) I can't imagine these stories to be more than exaggerated complaints. Also heard many women and girls say they dislike Uber because they had a bad experience and when I've asked what happened they often just tell me "the guy" was "creepy" or "gross" or "silent" or... have you ever rode in a cab before hon? They aren't therapists.

    Price is the main thing that makes me choose one over the other. If Uber is a little more expensive but the wait for the car is shorter I'll pay the extra for the shorter wait. But price is my main factor for which app I use. Sometimes I get an Uber somewhere and Lyft on my way home purely based on price.

    Thanks for posting this very informative and timely video. The situation with Uber and Lyft reminds me of Satellite radio over a decade ago. Sirius and XM were both growing quickly but they spent so much money competing against each other that both companies lost lots of money year after year. They eventually had to merge. I wonder if an Uber-Lyft merger could happen in the near future?

    I hate Lyft. Their customer service is the worst. Their rides are okay, but if you have a problem, forget it. Bad bad bad customer service. Uber customer service is excellent. Very professional. Very customer oriented. If you have a problem they take care of it no problem. Other than customer service, I don’t see any difference in the two. So it’s Uber all the way for me. I use the service often. But I will not use Lyft and absolutely will not recommend that any one use Lyft. I also hate that ugly pink Lyft logo. It looks like a child designed it.

When do need to use a ride app, i use uber and i have never had any problems out of the 10ish times i’ve used it. Tried Lyft twice and both times i said my ride was 10 minutes away.. for 30 minutes. i could see the little car on the map but it never moved. when i tried to get a hold of the driver i couldn’t and they just never came. so i canceled and of course got hit with the cancel fee. so yeah.. i’d say Uber wins for me.

I like Uber better even though they don't offer ride number incentives to meet. LYFT gets on my case for my Acceptance Rate all the time. Reasons? Passengers cancel thinking that they can obtain a driver 2 min closer. Folks, you are screwing your friendly drivers by not being at least a little more patient!

    When I travel to and from work using lyft or uber, I make my decision based on price. Because the cost to travel from point a to point b never stays the same. Last night it cost me about 5$ to get home from work and on a really bad night (poor weather conditions such as rain, snow, etc or traffic) they charge extra so it can cost up to 14$+. Some times switching between services can save pennies because they are essentially the same king of service but different brand. You have no idea who you're stepping into the car with and you trust them to do their job and take you home.

  83. ChuckandMax


    24 dias atrás

    I don’t know how Lyft is losing money, they take a big enough chunk out of the drivers pay. The company doesn’t have to pay the drivers for anything other than giving rides, while the driver pays for the maintenance the vehicle, the cleaning, they have to pay for tickets they incur wear and tear on their vehicle and save for taxes, as well as pay for all the gas. I know someone that drives for Lyft and they drive in LA. The cost they pay for gas is approx 24$ a day and they earn approx 100$ a day. When you factor in all the other variables they don’t really make much money and they are only paid for the time they are transporting a passenger. They don’t get paid for the time it takes them to get to the passenger or the long ride home while Lyft takes about 48% off their fare. You could say it’s great that they get to keep 100% of their tips but tbh millennials don’t know how to tip or even think they should tip a lowly rideshare operator after all they are just driving a car how hard can that be. I’m sure after the initial investment period in marketing and advertising Lyft will be able to scale those expenses back and generate a healthy profit. I know nothing about Uber but there are a lot of drivers that work for both companies. Lyft insurance has a very high deductible for the driver to pay and that driver still has to pay for their own insurance so it’s not clear to me why they are losing money. The company has very little investment put in and it’s all profit for them so if they can’t make money it’s their own fault. It’s not the drivers making all the cash and as soon as self driving cars becomes perfected all the drivers are going to be out of work anyways.

Mainly because what niche it was focusing on and stories about how it's CEO struggled at some tremendous levels to make company big during its initial years. And, as arguably we can say that India is the BIGGEST industry for internet markets due to its high population and low broadband pricing; it can become one of the biggest market to serve services through the internet in coming one or two decade(s). And, it would also be interesting research work to do. Or, there are others such as Zomato, Swiggy, PayTM, OLA, etc. :)
