    I definitely can see there are two sides to the gig economy, especially when it comes to ride sharing. I don’t think I am informed enough about both the pros and cons to form an educated opinion but I do worry about what happens if there is an accident (or any sort of issue with a driver).

    I work for an insurance company and they’ve been saying that ridesharing will definitely continue to change how we get from place to place. It’s been interesting to see how it’s changed life the past few years.

      I completely agree! I’ve loved using Lyft but at the same time, I’ve personally seen a victim of sexual assault from their driver – safety and vigilance is always key!

    ugh i get so weary about ride sharing. i had an uber driver pick me up once. at first i didn’t think anything of it, i thought it was just my usual anxiety and then i realized he was high and then he asking me – way to far into the ride- if we were going to my house and made a joke about rape under his breath. I made him pull over on the side of the road and got out. Uber didn’t care at all when i contacted them and they were truly awful through the entire experience.

    until taxi drivers are more transparent about costs, i’ll be sticking to rideshare apps. i don’t have time to argue why a 10 min ride costs $35 because of peak times/traffic waits/tolls/misc. i’d rather know upfront.

    I’m personally all for ride-sharing apps but with reasonable government regulations in place to protect both drivers and riders! I think consumers should also hold ridesharing app companies responsible for creating a good working environment as well.

    I’m way too scared to even use these apps! I’m afraid of getting in the car with a crazy person!
