Uber drops upfront pricing for most California riders in response to new law

Uber informed its California customers that it would switch to providing estimates as opposed to fixed prices for its rides in response to a new law that makes it harder to qualify its drivers as contractors. Certain rewards for frequent users will also be discontinued, including price protection for routes. On the other side, Uber drivers will now be able to reject requests without penalty.

so estimated prices for rides, so when I check to see if it's cheaper with Uber or Lyft I get screwed. no more customer loyalty price protection. but hey guess your driver can just cancel your ride if he feels like, without penalty. I'm done with them they charge me $10 to go less than a mile and a half.

Typical. Large corporations are able to sustain the costs of complying with regulations as they pass on more restrictions and costs to the consumer while smaller companies and self employed freelancers suffer the consequences of mishandled regulations.

California making more regulations that hurt ; business, workers and customers?!?! I’ve never heard of such a thing...oh,wait...yes I have, every freakin year. Fix the poop on the streets, the homeless and leave the people trying to make it in the hell you’ve all created ALONE.

Uber fears Regulation. Good. they really do need to understand that creating 2 classes of worker's is not a good thing.
