@Uber_Support @Uber when will the flat rate fares for San Francisco for May be available??
My week in San Francisco with the discounted prices was one of the busiest I have had to date. Psychologically it is a bit weird to drive someone to the airport which is usually a $50 flat rate and have it read $25 but with the reduced commission from Uber the totals are not nearly as bad as I might expect. Furthermore I would far rather keep busy driving people than sitting and waiting and moving to a new location and sitting and waiting some more which I did with the black car endlessly until I was ready to quit. We shall see if the experiment sustains or further increases demand but for the moment it is welcome (by me anyway) in a period notiorious for greatly reduced demand right after the holidays.
There is a start up company in San Francisco that will do this for you, It's called ,Luxe,. Luxe is a San Francisco-based valet service. The best way to think the company is like Uber for parking. They offer a flat rate fee for all-day parking almost anywhere in the city and will fill your car with gas or get it washed for a small fee. Their app can be found in the app store. I highly suggest you check it out. Use promo code Ben4 and try it for free.
The inventor According to ,Travis Kalanick,, Garrett Camp was the one who came up with the idea of Uber. The idea was the outcome of waiting half an hour for a Yellow cab on a street corner in San Francisco. Garrett Camp checked the App Store on his iPhone, and there were no disruptive solution to the problem. Camp put in around $200.000, and started building the prototype for the app accompanied by Oscar Salazar and Conrad Whelan, while Travis Kalanick was the advisor. Key contributions According to ,Stephen M. Baldwin,, ,“[Camp’s, red.] most compelling offshoots are UberHop, which transports customers along a fixed route at a flat rate, and UberPool, which helps users hook up with fellow commuters to split fares”, (Baldwin 2016).
Sushi Ran in Sausalito is by far the best Sushi place in the Bay Area. Beautiful interior, exquisite service, doesn’t pretend to be Japanese themed restaurant. More Zen than anything. Harmony. Rated 4.7 stars out of 5 By 1,500+ Open Table diners. Make a reservation weeks in advance. Sushi Ran is very popular or at least was before we were in the beginning stages of a plague. Take the ferry from the Ferry Building in San Francisco just before sunset and go to Sausalito. The restaurant is a pleasant 20 minute flat walk from the terminal. Sausalito is warmer and less foggy than San Francisco itself. (Note the time of the final boat back to the City so you don’t miss it. Otherwise it is an expensive Uber or Lyft ride back over the Golden Gate Bridge. But if money isn’t an issue you might prefer that way back into the City. Tip your Uber driver!!) Take a cab or ride share from the restaurant back to the Ferry Terminal. I promise you a most memorable evening of pure San Francisco gastronomic magic. Bring your camera, this will be a night worth remembering.
During the December party season I took a man to the San Francisco airport ( a flat rate of $65 in a black car for Uber) but surge pricing was on and when he got out the fare was about $179. I was embarrassed for the man with who I had had a lovely conversation. I know how I'd feel if it was me and I'd be REALLY annoyed. My opinion? I'm ambivalent at best. Taxi's don't do this. This is still basic transportation, we live in the most crass and commercial culture in the history of the world. Do we want to contribute to this. Apparently Uber's CEO wants to do this to support his lifestyle. I live in a tiny in law apartment under a house and drive over thirty five miles each way to work. Giving up surge pricing won't affect me especially but Kalanick, the CEO? His company get's 35% of every fare of every driver and that includes all those so called "tip included" fares, where there is actually NO tip allowed or provision included. What do I think of surge pricing? It wasn't my idea and I don't think that way because I think of how I'd feel if I was the rider.Apparently Kalanick does not think that way.
Well, there’s a lot to love! It’s a fun city and I enjoy living here. But,: The hills: ,They, ,can make walking ,miserable,. In Boston, things are pretty flat. When I interned in Cambridge I would happily walk the 2 miles from North Station to my office in the mornings. Now, I get a much better workout when I walk but it can be exhausting. Going up and down 300ft in elevation over a half mile span can make walking around a lot less practical. The weather: ,A lot of people complain about this one. I feel like its been 55–65 for the past 6 months with no variation. Little irksome when other cities in CA get beautiful sunshine for months. There’s little seasonal variation, a lot of foggy days, and things tend to feel chilly even when its not that cold. The similarity:, The whole city can sometimes feel like hanging around the Computer Science department at college (there’s a bit of bias to this based on who I know as a tech-employee). All the major offices downtown are tech companies, tons of people work in tech in one way or the other. It all kind of feels a little techy sometimes. Public Transit:, Uber is great, but the bills rack up. The bus lines stretch pretty far, but there subway/light-rail doesn’t cover much of the city and can’t really get you around. Maybe I just need to better familiarize myself with the resources, but (like most cities) the public transit system is a far cry from the NY subways. Decentralization:, A lot of what is really important is not in the city. You may very well get a job that is 1.5 hours out of the city and not be sure where you want to live. A lot of people who work at Apple, Google, Facebook, actually work down in Silicon Valley and either live out of the city or commute 1.5 hours each way. This can be a pain for people who commute, and mean you might have to travel a long way or just not see places or people in South Bay very often. SF would be a very different city if the big tech HQs were in the city limits. The Tenderloin:, All cities have neighborhoods with comparatively high crime rates, San Francisco’s just so happens to be in the center of the city. However, I hope that the city continues to work towards solutions for poverty and homelessness that can improve the quality of life for the people who suffer and struggle in the city. If San Francisco can grow into a city where both new, and current inhabitants can grow, benefit, and live happy sheltered lives, it will be a much better place. This one doesn’t really belong on the same list as silly things like “fog” because the root of this issue is the pain and suffering of humans, but none the less someone else would mention it if I did not.
There is one that’s not specific to a taxi company called “Flywheel”; it works on both Android and iPhones/iPads with cellular service. Luxor Cab has one that works for Android and iPhones/iPads with cellular service. Yellow Cab, Inc., has one that can only call Yellow Cabs, called “YoTaxi”; it only works on iPhones/iPads with cellular service. The Yellow Cab one offers flat rates trips to/from the airport, based on where the other end of the trip starts/ends, meaning you can get ahead of time pricing. Other than that, I’d probably use an Uber/Lyft ride share, rather than a taxi, for most situations. Yellow Cab and Luxor have a reputation — because, unlike ride shares, they are allowed to pick up random people flagging them down without an App — of skipping out on fares for what turn out to be trips more likely to keep a passenger in the seat, both ways. Specifically, if you take a taxi, you really want to give an hour ahead of time, in case you have to call twice more for a taxi, if they skip out on you. This is especially true in areas like the Inner Sunset in San Francisco, unless you walk down to 19th, or to 7th, North/South, or to Irving or Lincoln, East/West.
Because taxis are metered in SF (by law, to ALL destinations). You can try to negotiate with the driver a flat rate and having her turn off her meter, but that is iffy. And furthermore, when you exceed 15 miles out of the city, the mileage rate is charged at 150%. Fortunately the airport is within this distance. Because black cars and airport limo services offer flat rates to SFO and are usually nearly the same cost as a taxi, and they actually show up. Because the ~1400 taxis are already notoriously hard to find in SF - why would you risk the possibility of missing your flight if you cannot find a cab in time to get to the airport? (a very likely occurrence.) If it's raining, or a weekend, or a friday or saturday night, or a full moon, or a holiday, or the day of a sporting event, or concert, forget finding a cab. You will miss your flight unless you use Uber. Because BART goes directly inside the airport. You really don't need to take a taxi all the way to the airport unless you have 8 pieces of luggage and nobody to help you carry it. If you know when your flight time is, you already arranged with your hotel front desk or a car service or shuttle service to pick you up at a specified time in order to make your flight. Because you can whip out your smartphone and use the Uber app for someone to show up on command with a car and take you there. Source: ,San Francisco Taxis
Officially it was 3.2%, from November 13 through October '14, and running a 3% annual rate (not seasonally adjusted) in September and October. See ,Consumer Price Index, San Francisco Area - October 2014, (note: the linked contents will probably update over time). Compared with the nationwide urban increase of 1.7% (See ,Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers,) on an aggregate basis San Francisco is zooming ahead, though the extra 1.5% is probably below the threshold of most consumers noticing in a single year. The change from San Francisco being an affordable quirky bohemian community where six unemployed musicians could share a flat to being one of the world's most expensive places to live has been a 20-year-long slog, not a sudden jolt. These structured nationwide attempts to calculate CPI ignore a lot of things in the name of objectivity and consistency that can make one region's price increases feel a lot more painful, or not. Typical San Francisco apartment rents went up more than 15% in the past year (the CPI tracks what people actually pay, which lags way behind increases for new rentals due to rent control, leases, and the tendency of even non rent-control landlords not to hike up rates too fast for long term tenants). Apartments are much harder to find and these figures only track what people actually pay, not the desperate measures people have to take when they can't find a place to live. The cost of eating out has gone up far faster than inflation. Education costs are up, from private day schools to college tuitions. Parking tickets are more expensive, parking is also rising faster than inflation. Uber and Lyft added their $1 "safety" fee, which increased their effective prices, while introducing carpool rates. Insurance costs more. Health care costs more. On the positive side, public transit hasn't had a rate hike recently, energy costs are way down (though with our mild climate and short distance commutes we don't need as much). Nevertheless, all of these have slowed down their breakneck increases from past years (there were some years when the cost of buying or renting real estate wend up 25% or more), even as the job market has improved. So I would say the affordability index has improved slightly for people who do have jobs.
If your definition of cheap is the least money, ask for a ride from a friend, walk, or hitchhike. If your definition also includes time spent as a variable in the equation, some taxi services and shuttles have good flat rates, or you could try uber pool. Caltrain/BART is a cheaper option, but will take a lot longer.
