Company could also reportedly stop allowing drivers to see customers’ destinations
Uber could stop allowing drivers in California to set fares and view customers’ destinations, according to a recent report.
The ride-hailing app started testing those policies in January 2020 as a way to sidestep California’s gig worker law, AB5, which requires companies to treat gig workers like employees.
By allowing drivers to set fares and see customers’ destinations before picking them up, Uber said it was giving drivers more flexibility and control, FOX Business reported at the time.
However, more than a year later, the company is reportedly admitting that those policies have been bad for business and have made the app unreliable, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday.

Drivers and those who wish to voice their opposition to the policy change are encouraged to call Uber at 800 539-7069.

AB5 is a law that needs to be repealed in California.
It takes away our freedoms as drivers to work when we want.
It was written by the AFL-CIO a labor union. This is a conflict of interest!
It will force Uber and Lyft to shut down operations in California, which will result in 220,000 drivers out of work.

Instead of tinkering with AB5, just repeal it
