Can someone from Netflix confirm if uber rides are free for you and you only pay the tax amount on uber rides? Is this for work commute only?

    How does Netflix verify that the ride you are taking on Uber is for commute and not a personal ride to a bar ?

      You can set custom policies in Uber's business offerings to restrict by time, day, pickup/dropoff location, total amount covered, and even service type (pool, x, etc)

      The rides we take gets created as autogenerated expense sheet in your company workday profile. If for any reason you abuse it would definitely be noticed.

      We tend to not hire people that will abuse systems like this, same as expenses are auto-approved people could abuse it but overall people don't.

      Freedom and Responsibility - that would be stealing - if caught you would have a problem - a big one because The Valley is smaller that it seems...

      That said they have Lyft agreement too which I personally prefer (moral issue with Uber)

    You should note that you have to pay tax on the money paid for those rides. It gets added to W4. I have seen no one using it as a regular commute option.

      Thanks for the note. Good backup if you miss the shuttle.

  • Is this because Netflix doesn't have shuttles or this in addition to shuttles?

    You get an option in the uber app to expense the ride as "commute". At the end of the month the total of the commute rides gets added to your TC, and you pay tax on it.

    You can do that if your work sponsors a commuter program. Pre-tax money are used on Uber pool rides
