Whether the Uber or Lyft driver is using personal vehicle or TLC rentals, how to get in touch with Uber or Lyft quickly

How to get into contact with Uber or Lyft when you need assistance”

— Friendly, www.FriendlyTLC.com

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since Uber came out in 2011 with Lyft following shortly afterwards, both companies have suffered from time to time with inadequate customer service. This is hardly uncommon with any new company, especially those that are starting up a new market. As both companies continue to improve, they have made contacting them easier to provide better customer service.

Help Portal

This is the first place you go if you are an Uber driver looking to have questions answered. The Help Portal lets both drivers and passengers ask basic questions, get tips, payments, and the like. The Help Portal for Lyft is similar in nature, although structured a little differently.

Uber App

This is one that you should be familiar with but is often overlooked. The app itself can answer many of your questions right away. So, try the app first before delving any deeper into the system.

Social Media Sites

Both Uber and Lyft have social media accounts, such as Facebook, that is quite helpful if you need general questions answered. That’s because the sites may have fellow Uber or Lyft members that know the answer, so you can find out relatively quickly.

Partner Websites

These are website that offer general information about Uber or Lyft for your area. This may be the best way to have questions answered that are deal with your location. You can find them using Google and typing the query “local Uber partner site” or “local Lyft partner site”. Adding the city would be helpful as well.

Talk to a Person

If you need to contact a human being that is with Uber or Lyft, you’ll need to start with the messaging system which replaced their respective emails. Keep in mind that there is no phone support from either Uber or Lyft at this time. However, Uber does have local offices in many of the larger cities, so you might be able to find the address through Google and visit them personally.

For Non-Emergencies that Need Swift Action

If a passenger leaves something important behind in your vehicle, Uber has a number for you to call, 1-800-353-UBER. For Lyft, 1-855-865-9553. This line is not normally used, but only for situations that are not emergencies, but do require swift action on their part.

For Life-Threatening Emergencies, use 911

Both Uber and Lyft stress for drivers that are involved in accidents or situations that require swift attention from the police, fire department, or an ambulance that they call 911 immediately. 911 is there to keep you safe when things go wrong of this nature.

Whether driving your own vehicle or using TLC car for rent, being able to contact Uber or Lyft when needed is a vital part of your service. Plus, you can take care of your vehicle or TLC car rental using other means when necessary.

Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition Board Members at Award Ceremony (L to R) Gene Antonio, Andre DiMino, Dr. Manny Alfano, Anthony Bengivenga, Tony Santarelli, Bob Tarte, Frank Lorenzo, Dr. Ann Walko, Paul Alongi and Robert DiBiase

Two New Initiatives Launched By Italian American One Voice Coalition in Its Ongoing Defense of Italian American Heritage and Culture

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, USA, November 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bloomfield, NJ – The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition (“ONE VOICE”), America’s largest independent Italian American anti-bias organization, and NJ Assemblyman Ralph Caputo were honored by the NJ Italian American Heritage Commission (“NJIAHC”) at a special awards ceremony held in their honor.

Robert DiBiase, NJIAHC Chair presented awards to Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of ONE VOICE and Assemblyman Caputo, for their untiring efforts supporting Italian American heritage and culture and specifically for supporting funding of the NJIAHC. “We are grateful to both ONE VOICE and Assemblyman Caputo for their strong support of our heritage and the Commission,” stated Mr. DiBiase.

Upon receiving the award Dr. Alfano stated, “I accept this award on behalf of the ONE VOICE Executive Board, our Organization Members and Defenders across the nation who work every day to protect Italian Americans.” In addition to issues such as stereotyping, he noted recent increases in attacks on Columbus Day, “This is an American Holiday and Italian Americans are the caretakers of this important accomplishment that opened up this part of the world.”

Assemblyman Caputo gave an impassioned talk on his support and involvement in the Italian American experience. “I am honored to receive this recognition from the Commission and I will continue to support it and the work of ONE VOICE in any way I can.”

ONE VOICE used the occasion to announce two new initiatives to expand its efforts at defending Italian American heritage and culture.

ONE VOICE Executive Board Member Frank Lorenzo took to the podium to announce that ONE VOICE launched a GoFundMe Campaign to secure support for ONE VOICE’s efforts at defending Columbus Day across the US. “We were successful in helping to save the iconic Columbus Statue in New York City. But it takes funds for legal costs and other expenses to repel this desecration of our great American holiday. Our GoFundMe Campaign is a way for everyone to help fight,” he stated.

Mr. Lorenzo turned the microphone over to ONE VOICE Communications Director, Andre’ DiMino to announce the second initiative for the organization.

“We are fortunate to have dedicated Executive Board Members who meet monthly to discuss our efforts at counteracting stereotyping and discrimination. We need our Organization Members and Defenders, located across the country, to participate without having to travel.” He explained that ONE VOICE is launching a ‘Virtual Meeting’ program where a liaison for each Organization Member can participate in an interactive live video virtual meeting. “This will be a crucial tool for us to further connect our ONE VOICE team across the country to keep abreast of the latest attacks on our Italian American heritage and culture.” He urged any and all Italian American organizations, nationwide, to join ONE VOICE and participate in defending Italian American heritage and culture via the new Virtual Meeting program.

ONE VOICE is different from all other Italian American groups in that its sole focus and objective is to educate and fight bias, stereotyping and discrimination against Italian Americans. ONE VOICE’s stated mission is to “…secure the rightful representation of Americans of Italian origin and of all peoples whose paths toward social equality have been impeded. The powers of intellect, wisdom and due process of law will be brought to bear on all inequities.”

ONE VOICE issues a regular email newsletter, “The Alfano Digest,” to more than 5,000 individuals and Italian American organizations nationwide. Written and compiled by Dr. Alfano, the Digest issues alerts on instances of bias, stereotyping, discrimination and defamation and activates the ONE VOICE nationwide network of “Defenders” who respond through calls, emails, faxes, letters and demonstrations where necessary. The Digest also contains informative Italian American cultural and heritage information. To receive the Digest, email Dr. Alfano – mannyalfano@comcast.net.

WANTAGH, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — We are pleased to announce that the Expo will return on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019 at NYCB LIVE, Home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The 2019 New York Tennis Expo will once again be a free event for all attendees and will have something for the whole family. The Exhibitor Hall will be filled with top tennis programs, clubs, academies, camps, product lines, sports medicine, travel destinations and much, much more, plus tons of fun activities throughout the day.

“We are proud to be kicking off year two of the New York Open. Nearly 4,000 people came out to enjoy the 2018 New York Tennis Expo back in February, and Long Island and New York Tennis Magazines are excited to announce the return of this one-of-a-kind event,” said Publisher David Sickmen. “This free event provides unparalleled exposure and branding opportunities for companies who want to promote their programs, products, services, etc. to a diverse audience in a fun environment. For local families, it is a perfect way to spend the day as there is fun for everyone both on and off the court, and it’s completely free!”

As the opening day for the New York Open, the New York Tennis Expo will have professional players on-site signing autographs, practicing on NYCB LIVE’s black courts and taking part in the tournament’s draw ceremony.

"We are excited over presenting the New York Tennis Expo and New York Open 2.0 so to speak," said GF Sports EVP and Tournament Director Josh Ripple. "When we reflect on the 2018 New York Open, it was clear that the New York Tennis Expo successfully seeded the week which afforded kids, adults and sports and recreational companies locally and regionally a chance to be exposed to the new NYCB LIVE, our signature black courts and plain old fun and value that United Sports Publications brought to the party. Working with David Sickmen and his team has been incredibly effective and rewarding, and we look to build the Expo each and every year."

There will be a Kids’ Zone featuring a bouncy house, face-painting, music and other games, and an Activity Zone which will host two Net Generation courts, where kids can pick up a racket and play. Tennis teams from local colleges will be giving clinics and running drills all-day long on the courts used by the professionals during the New York Open. You can also see how your serve compares with the professionals at the Speed Serve Booth.

The popular Beach Tennis court will be back as attendees and guests can get a little taste of summer in the winter by kicking off their shoes and hopping onto the sand. A New York Beach Tennis professional will be on-site to help teach this exciting new sport.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from some of the top tennis minds in the two different Speaker Sessions that will take place in NYCB LIVE’s Grant Thornton VIP Lounge, and the latest in tennis apparel will be on display in the Tennis Fashion Show.

NorthMarq Capital donates $4,000 to Wartburg's Friedrich's Affordable Housing

LtoR: Dr. David J. Gentner and Robert Ranieri

MOUNT VERNON, NEW YORK, USA, November 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — NorthMarq Capital Donates $4,000 to Wartburg’s Friedrich’s Affordable Senior Housing

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y.—Nov. 12, 2018—NorthMarq Capital has donated $4,000 to Wartburg to support wellness programs in Friedrich’s affordable senior independent living facility. This grant was nominated by Robert Ranieri, managing director at NorthMarq’s Westchester office and Wartburg board member.

As part of a new initiative for 2018, NorthMarq created a fund to support organizations that focus on improving access to affordable housing or eradicating homelessness in the markets it serves for commercial real estate financing. This initiative is in alignment with NorthMarq owner, the Pohlad Companies’ expanded emphasis into these two focus areas.

Friedrich’s opened on Wartburg’s 34-acre campus in 2013, offering beautiful studio and one bedroom handicap-accessible apartments for the 62+ community of active seniors. Residents have access to amenities such as a sunlit multipurpose community room, a state-of-the-art fitness room, an expansive library, laundry on each floor and free assigned parking. The first ever Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certified building in Mount Vernon boasts bamboo floors and individually thermostatic heating and air-conditioned units. Over 60 percent of the original tenants continue to enjoy a full calendar of activities and support services provided. Rents range from $752 – $1,085 depending on income and unit availability.

“We are honored to receive this donation from NorthMarq Capital. It will help us to continue our work on wellness, aging in place and lifelong learning,” says Dr. David Gentner, Wartburg’s President and CEO. NorthMarq’s grant will support wellness programs that include exercise classes, line dancing and other creative programs aimed at promoting increased emotional health, social engagement and lifelong learning for seniors.

“I am proud that NorthMarq recognizes the importance of supporting non-profits that help support affordable housing and I am personally pleased that Wartburg was a well-deserved recipient of these funds that will help the residents of Friedrichs,” said Wartburg Board member, Robert Ranieri, and facilitator of the grant.

NorthMarq has since awarded $50,000 to non-profit organizations nominated by employees in 10 of its markets.

Wartburg, located in Westchester County, NY, offers integrated, comprehensive senior residential and healthcare services. Unlike conventional retirement communities, Wartburg provides a wide range of services to both residents living on their beautiful 34-acre campus and people in their own homes. From independent, assisted living and award-winning nursing home care to inpatient/outpatient rehabilitation, home care and adult day care services, their continuing care approach has earned them a trusted reputation in Westchester. Wartburg also provides caregiver support at every stage with an array of options to find the level of care that considers the whole family. Most recently, Wartburg received the 2016 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award from the American College of Health Care Administrators and the 2015 Legacy Award from the Westchester County Chapter of the Links. In addition, Wartburg was named one of the "Best Nursing Homes in New York State" by U.S. News & World Report for the eighth consecutive year in 2018.

Ideagen’s software helps RATP Dev USA ‘reduce vehicle accidents by 19%’

The safety stats were unveiled at the global transportation leader’s recent Safety Summit in Texas

Ideagen plc (LSE:IDEA.L)

“We are absolutely delighted that our Coruson software has played a part in helping to reduce vehicle accidents across eight RATP Dev USA subsidiaries…”

— Gordon McKeown, Head of Product, Ideagen

NOTTINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM, November 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ideagen, the UK-based, global software firm, today (MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26th) announced it has helped a major transportation company reduce vehicle accidents by 19%.

RATP Dev USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of RATP Group which operates and maintains urban intercity transportation systems in 14 countries, launched its ‘drive2zero™’ Safety Management System (SMS) last year and adopted Ideagen’s software.

Coruson, Ideagen’s cloud-based system for enterprise safety, quality, reporting and incident management, is used by RATP Dev USA to directly manage safety, risk and operational performance across all bus, paratransit and rail services.

Mike Anderson, VP of Safety and Security for RATP Dev USA, said: “We started implementing SMS in our subsidiaries back in December 2017 and, to date, we’ve implemented SMS in eight out of around 35 – so we still have a lot of work to do.

“But our initial results are very promising – we’ve seen an overall reduction year-to-date of 19% in vehicle accidents alone.”

As part of the same framework, SmartDrive Systems, a leader in video-based safety and transportation intelligence, provide RATP Dev USA’s fleets, drivers and management with driving performance insight and analysis, helping save fuel, expenses and lives.

“drive2zero is our internally developed safety solution,” explains Patrick Manley, Director of Safety for RATP Dev USA. “We worked and partnered with Ideagen and SmartDrive to help develop some of the electronic components of the drive2zero SMS.

“Where in the past we have seen companies report positive results in 9 to 12 months, we’re now seeing results in 6 to 7 months. That’s due to an increase in hazard reports as we now have people telling us where risk is in our organisation and a comprehensive way of managing that risk.”

RATP Dev USA transports more than 78 million passengers across the United States through various transportation services such as bus, urban or intercity rail lines (streetcar), and shuttle services.

The drive2zero framework has four components – Safety Policy, Risk Management, Safety Assurance and Safety Promotion. Its aim is to continuously improve transit operations and support RATP Dev USA’s commitment to an unparalleled safety record for customers and employees.

Gordon McKeown, Head of Product at Ideagen, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the team at RATP Dev USA.
“We are absolutely delighted that our Coruson software has played such a crucial part in helping to reduce vehicle accidents across eight RATP Dev USA subsidiaries and we are confident of seeing even more success across the wider network as the project progresses.”

Meanwhile across the US, the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) Final Rule requires operators of public transportation systems to develop safety plans that include processes and procedures necessary for implementing safety management systems. The PTASP rule takes effect from July 2019 and by the following year operators must certify they have a safety plan in place that meets the requirements of the rule.

Mike added: “Any of our subsidiaries or locations that adopt drive2zero will now automatically meet the requirements of the PTASP rule that will be due in July 2020.”

Altrice Investment Co. Limited – Asian Markets Higher on Trump Xi Meeting this Week

Trump and Xi to Meet at G20 in Argentina This Week

Asian shares were mostly higher Monday on hopes that U.S. President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping will work around their issues.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, November 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — KEEPING SCORE: Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225, reopening after a holiday, added 0.8 percent to 21,815.55. South Korea's Kospi jumped 1 percent to 2,077.25. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index rebounded 1.3 percent to 26,251.11. The Shanghai Composite dipped 0.1 percent to 2,577.36. Australia's S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.7 percent to 5,674.90. Shares rose in Taiwan, Singapore and the Philippines, but fell in Indonesia.

WALL STREET: Energy companies led a slide in U.S. stocks on Friday, as a plunge in oil prices weighed on sentiment. Trading volume was lighter than usual as markets were only open for a half day after the Thanksgiving break. The S&P 500 index fell 0.7 percent to 2,632.56, racking up its second correction of the year. It is now down 10.2 percent from its last all-time high set on Sept. 20. The Nasdaq composite shed 0.5 percent to 6,938.98 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.7 percent to 24,285.95. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks was less than 0.1 percent higher at 1,488.68.

TRUMP-XI MEETING: Presidents Trump and Xi will meet at the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires at the end of the week. A trade dispute over Beijing's technology policy, which has caused them to impose tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's goods, is likely at the top of the agenda. Investors are watching to see if the leaders can arrive at an agreement to ease tensions that have been weighing on corporate earnings and the global economy.

ANALYST'S TAKE: "As the current round of U.S.-Chinese trade talks only restarted in the last few weeks, hopes of a trade deal at this juncture could be too optimistic," Adrian Haliday of Altrice Investment Co. Limited said in a market commentary. "However, an agreement for talks over dinner suggests a higher level of engagement, which could result in a gentlemen's agreement not to escalate tariffs further."

BREXIT DEAL: The European Union and Britain have finally sealed an agreement governing the latter's departure from the bloc on March 29. This comes after months of hesitation, stop-and-start negotiations and resignations. British Prime Minister Theresa May must now get her divided Parliament to back the deal, which leaves Britain subject to rules and obligations of the bloc at least until the end of 2020 and possibly longer. She is facing intense opposition from pro-Brexit and pro-EU lawmakers alike.

JAPAN PMI: A private survey released on Monday showed Japanese manufacturing slowing in November. The Markit/JMMA flash purchasing managers' index fell to 51.8 in November from 52.9 in the previous month. New orders slipped into contraction territory for the first time since September 2016. Numbers above 50 on the index show acceleration.

ENERGY: Oil prices recovered after plunging on worries that a slowing global economy could hurt demand for oil. Benchmark U.S. crude added 30 cents to $50.72. The contract plunged $4.21 to close at $50.42 in New York. Brent crude, the international standard, rose 59 cents to $59.39. It finished $3.80 lower at $58.80 in London.

CURRENCIES: The dollar strengthened to 113.24 yen from 112.96 yen late Friday. The euro fell to $1.1335 from $1.1339.
