  • Good app, needs a little work Nov 19, 2020

    The main issue I have with the app so far is the pricing which can jump anywhere above or below the initial estimate after you request a ride and are connected with a driver. I’ve had it jump well above what I tend to pay on Uber and I don’t want to ride if I’m almost paying double what I normally do (I might as well call a cab at that point). I’m all for supporting drivers and am glad to hear that the money goes straight to the drivers, but with the random rates some of the drivers have varying so greatly, I don’t know how often I’ll actually use this app 😥

    5 stars for the design of the app, it's intuitive interface and simplicity. Easy to use and well thought out. Will use furthermore.

    I love that the drivers make the entire fair, but this app needs work. The drivers literally drive in circles trying to find me and then end up parking and waiting for me half a mile away. I have no idea why.

    The drivers are so happy when driving for empower because they are making more money that it makes the rides more enjoyable. The rides are also much cheaper which is great. It just started out so wait times can be a longer than Uber sometimes but it’s worth the wait. I also love how I can call a female driver for my daughter and feel comfortable with her in it!

    This app is a joke before when I first installed it yes I would of rated 5 stars easily after my $30 ride credit was used up i was able to still get to my job relatively cheap and it was at first hella cheaper than uber and lyft and I was happy with itWAS until the drivers started sitting at spots waiting for you to cancel so they can get a cancelation fee and then there are RARELY any everyday drivers but there's a cap ton of premium drivers and recently regular drivers have been charging more

    For one I thought this app would be better than UBER & LYFT but it’s actually NOT it’s a get over . and if I knew it was a get over I WOULDNT HAVE USED IT . when I book a ride for a certain price & it calls the driver between 5-10 minutes once I get the driver THE PRICE GOES UP it’s not my fault that not to many people drives for YOU so why should my price go up because it takes you guys 5-10 minutes to call it? When booking UBER OR LYFT it gives you a price & if it takes 5-10 minutes IT STAYS AT THE PRICE YOU AGREED ON WHEN HITTING BOOK IT .. further more you guys have no contact number when my account has been charged multiple times FOR RIDES I DIDNT TAKE . $23 back to back trust me if I was going book a $23 or $25 ride I could’ve just went with Uber . Because a lot of people know about this app now you guys are taking advantage .. and that’s not right if somebody hit book for the price you don’t over charge them because of your DRIVER & YOUR LOW BUSINESS.

    I waited 13 minutes for my ride that never arrived, tried contacting driver and the app wouldn't move forward when I tried to, so I waited for driver and he never showed up and then got charged for a ride I didn't even take.
  • Not good. Nov 5, 2020

    I’ve tried this app twice : The first time it went well, but I had accidentally left my bag in the driver’s car. They gave me no way to contact the driver, and after calling their customer service line multiple times, I always got sent to voicemail and still have not been contacted back. So my belongings are basically lost. The second time I used it, I got a driver and the app kept saying he was getting closer, but when it said he was here, he was nowhere around me. I tried contacting the driver but had no luck. So basically this app wasted 20 minutes of my time, and was glitching out about where my driver was. I canceled the ride after waiting another 5 minutes after the app said my driver had arrived because he was nowhere to be found, I couldn’t get in touch with him and it was almost midnight. Unsurprisingly I have still been charged for the ride. All in all I have had two terrible experiences with this app and company. They claim to be a great alternative to Uber and Lyft but lack every decent feature and benefit that the other two have, including customer service. I am highly disappointed in this company and I hope this may be a warning to someone else interested in this app.

  • Great mission, better service Dec 8, 2020

    By macandrews202
    Empower is truly one of the only products on the market - in any industry - that is a legitimate win-win for driver and rider, with no strings attached. The rides are exponentially cheaper than those of Uber and Lyft, and I really can’t see myself using those services anymore. If you like saving money like I do, I’d emphatically recommend Empower

    I've used the app multiple times in DC so far and I have had a great experience each time. The pricing worked out cheaper for me relative to lyft which was my go to before.

  • Overall great app Dec 8, 2020

    So far I really like that app. They have to fix some bugs like time estimates and the ETA. However, I really like that more of the money goes to the driver so that I can get behind!

    New company, still working out some kinks. However, when you finally get a hold of someone at the help desk they are very friendly and considerate. Giving 3 stars (changing from 1 star) because they have a long way to go but they appear to be heading in the right direction.

  • The pricing needs work Oct 26, 2020

    By tokipanda
    So far the pricing is all over the place, one minute it’s $10 then if you go out and back into the app it’s jumped to $30. So far to go about less then 15 minutes to my house from work it’s almost been $50! On Lyft it’s $20 to$21 at max always. So not sure if I will get using this if the pricing keeps flexing like this.

    I was waiting 30 minutes for a ride that was supposed to come in 9 min and more over it gave me one price and when I confirmed the ride the price has raised. Answer: Yes, because that was the third driver I was assigned after 30 minute wait. And he was really nice that's why I gave him a thumb up, it wasn't his fault that your app sucks! Hide quoted text
