Re: “Street Legal? Ride-share drivers settling in to a changing market

@ClaimsAdjuster that incident is a tragedy and you are right to point out the flaws of this new industry. But if you read the link I included, Lyft does cover us, in the case that our personal will not, up to their maximum. I cannot speak for Uber.

As for the victims in that accident on NYE, ridesharing companies should be on the hook for any incidents that occur such as that. I think these changes will be coming sooner rather than later.

The rideshare industry is a no-brainer. It is a jobs-provider and adds innovation and improvement to a sector that needs both badly. The insurance companies will catch up eventually.

Re: “Street Legal? Ride-share drivers settling in to a changing market

I was born and raised in Monroeville now living in San Francisco. I've been driving for Lyft in SF since September of last year.

Lyft offers a $1 million liability coverage for drivers and passengers. They also just rolled out un/under insured and collision insurance to address the personal insurance concerns of drivers such as myself.

Anyone who would like to learn more about safety measures offered by Lyft can follow this link...

As for the Taxi's...Uber and Lyft will definitely be taking a chunk out of your business. I suggest you focus your efforts on improving your own services instead of opposing ride-sharing companies. Stop refusing credit cards and debit cards, stop passing by fares on the street to pick up the cute girl one block down, START honoring your word for scheduled pickups, and START updating your business model with enhancements such as apps to request taxi rides from.

Right now, ridesharing companies offer a more transparent, accountable, reliable, enjoyable, and convenient service than you (taxis) do. Adapt or die. You don't want to end up like the Dodo bird...
