Historical Data

Know that I AM forever grateful that I have been able to drive for the rideshare industry because it’s been my sole source of income since August, 2016.

However, the bad press in 2017 was brutal and continues.  And there are thousands of rideshare drivers who are either dissatisfied, frustrated or just plain angry.

Personally, I am disappointed that a company that has forever changed the transportation industry — while giving millions a financial light at the end of the tunnel — does NOT compensate its dedicated drivers fairly.  And it’s gotten worse over the years.

When I started this site in mid-April, 2017, the bad press articles seem to appear almost daily or weekly. However, things changed dramatically in June. The first two news articles are from June 20 and 13, 2017, respectively:


And here are the news articles and my Facebook comments from April and May:

Read that again:

Uber is not a transportation provider . . . . Additional stops may result in a higher fare. . . . At times of intense demand, our rates change over time to keep vehicles available.{Emphasis added}

UPDATE as of June 19, 2017: Tipping in the app was the industry giant’s first announcement of 180 Days of Change.

It’s that simple and would be so appreciated. 

You have NO idea who YOU know that needs this information. 

Remember:  YOU Do NOT Need To Be a Rider or Driver to help support the movement for a BETTER rideshare experience. Just share this site with others!

P.S.  I’m fairly certain you will find value in the content presented here because it doesn’t exist anywhere else.  It is my personal experience as a rideshare driver in Atlanta since August 2016.  This site was created during Easter 2017 and has found new life since finding HERide.

So, feel free to TIP your rideshare and HERide driver, Anita Johnson.  Every moment not “driving for dollars” results in a lot of time to do any and everything, but no money is made immediately.  Rideshare drivers are out here for the money.  Why else would we drive people from Point A to Point B in the ATL?  🙂

Appreciate Your Support as We ALL Do Better in Rideshare!
