Ride Sharing

I haven’t been using ride sharing much since COVID.  My last two rides have been unbearable.  The drivers absolutely cranking the ***** out of whatever garbage they are listening to and the temperature has been about 10 degrees in the wrong direction.  
 

I don’t recall it being this bad pre-pandemic.  Has anyone else had experiences like this?

I’ve used it a couple times recently with good results but I’m not surprised to hear of your experiences. Like every other industry, help is hard to come by and standards have been lowered.

I haven’t traveled since covid so I haven’t used ride share services since covid.

Going to Minneapolis at the end of August.  We’ll see if the ride share experience is different.

I think this is one of those areas where NYC is different from almost everywhere else, but I haven't noticed much difference in Uber/Lyft since pre-pandemic, other than:

- a bit more expensive

- no more shared rides

I used it 3-4 weeks ago for a late night beer run. This old dude, he was almost 70, pulls in my driveway at like 1:15 a.m. He had this rap/indie type music cranked. Pretty sure he woke up half my neighbors. He turned it down when I got in, and as soon as he was done talking, he cranked it right back up. Worst ride ever!!!

I was in Orlando last month, and I used it to putz around to a few places outside of the Disney resorts. I had no problem with any of the ones I took. I actually typically enjoy talking with the drivers because most are from outside of the US, and they have interesting stories.
