I've only ever ridden with Lyft. I know they have a rating for riders, but afaik it's not easily viewable (for riders).

4.89, which actually surprises me, because I’ve had some terrible experiences with Uber where I had to call the guy to ask what his deal was when he wasn’t getting any closer to picking me up. I had assumed getting firm with their people would give me a crappy rating, but I guess not. The majority of trips are pleasant enough though. If the driver feels chatty, I’ll have a conversation with him/her, but usually, it’s a short quiet ride to wherever I need to go.

I’m sure it helps that pretty much all of my Uber experience is business travel. If the driver ever works the bar rush, they’ve probably got a pretty low standard for 4 or 5 star behavior. The fact that I’m sober headed to the airport at 7am rather than drunk and puking over his car at 2am is probably grounds for a 4 or 5 alone.

5.00

Does it round? I actually usually use it to pick up my mom. She likes to chat up the drivers (she's retired, doesn't get out much). I guess this proves she isn't pissing them off or driving them insane.

This past time, she didn't pick up when I called to let her know that the driver was coming, so I had to text him to let him know he might have to wait. He told her he thought, "oh no, this is going to be bad" since it is an hour drive and there was already a communication issue. It ended up all good. Whew!

[new note] had to use Uber Black to get my parents to the airport since the taxi company couldn't locate them a minivan-taxi. $100 and I assume they got there since I didn't get a freak-out call from my mom. Either that or they are somewhere buried deep in a forest and I'll realize they are missing soon enough. Anyway, I still have my 5.00 rating even after having my dad ride also.
