The Lounge>The Sharing Economy: how much you sharing?
scho63 07:43 PM 02-08-2019
Today I rented a car for two days on Turo. $80.40 complete total. It's the 8th time I've done it.

I've also done AirBnB, Lime Bike, Uber, Bird Scooter.

What services have you used in this new sharing economy? :-)

Most people are 20-40 using these services and I'm nearly 56.

I took a Lyft home after the AFCCG because it was half the price of Uber ($19). I'm 55 and there isn't much else here other than Waitr. I've used it. but I have to have it delivered to work because I'm outside of delivery range.

Damn I've never tried Turo. I paid well over 100 bucks for 2 uber trips to an s from the airport. I could've had a damn car for the entire time I was there.

You will be shocked at how cheap it is. It's not like Hertz or Avis where you get a brand new car and pay $99 a day plus fees. This is 7-8 year sold vehicles for $35-50 a day all in. :-)

You're not claiming full credit, scho. Escorts are part of the sharing economy, too.

My views of the sharing economy:

1. Airbnb and home sharing - Nope. I figure the owners all have hidden cameras, and when I'm alone in a room by myself, things happen that no one should see.

2. Uber/Lyft and other car share stuff - Great concept when it started. Now it's basically non-certified taxis driven by third world taxi drivers in their off hours. I use them a lot, but I use them less now that they make the drivers beg for tips.

3. Scooters and bikes and stuff. I would certainly use these. I just don't have much opportunity. I have a large walking radius, and beyond that I'm generally taking a bus or I'm driving/ubering.

4. Rent someone's personal car. I've never done it. I'm not averse to it, but I like the implied homogeneity and reliability of the rental car companies. I'm not likely to try it for that reason.

5. Household stuff sharing. I saw something a while back about a site where you can share household goods back and forth. This is for things that you need once in a while but not often, like an electric screwdriver or a pony or a snowblower. It seems like it could be a good idea, but I don't remember the site and I seldom need something expensive that I don't already have.

Have you ever thought about an E-Bike. I really want one but can't justify spending the money.

To own? Or do the sharing thing?

I've been really enamored with buying a recumbent trike recently. But a friend who's a big bike guy is talking me out of it with logic and reason.

To own. There's a guy in my neighborhood that has one and he really gets around. Haven't seen him pedal yet. Don't get a trike , they make people think you're too stupid to keep your balance.

These are the cool looking trikes, not the 'can't balance yourself' trikes. I guess they do help with balance, though. I want to travel in one of these.
