    There are some trips where I get a surge - let's say $5 - when I accept the trip. But when the trip is over, the actual surge is much higher than what it was when I accepted the trip. Sometimes, it can be several times the dollar amount that showed when I accepted the trip. It doesn't happen on...

    Hello all, Since Friday may 13th midnight. I see all surge has been taken off from the map. Is this a glitch? Please confirm I'm freaking out

    Is it worth doing this? Could probably only do the lowest one

    Had my first puker this weekend. I was wondering how much people got from the cleaning fees for exterior vomit/messes only. Nothing was really inside my car. I was expecting $150+ but I got $40 the first time then argued for more and got another $40. Sent in a 3rd argue and awaiting their...

    Hi all, I took a lengthy break from Ubering due to the pandemic, although I kept my registration up to date and active, and got my car inspected when requested. The app is up and running for me and I can sign in without problem. But my City of Chicago TNP Emblem is expired, and I don't believe...

    Several drivers have complained to me that they cannot register for UBER's "Rides" platform. After going through the driver signup process, their profile automatically registers them to EATS exclusively. Anyone else in the Chicago area experiencing the same?

    Hi, I am currently driving for Lyft. I thought Via would be great in winter as you are confined to the Chicago city limits—no icy burbs. I feel that Lyft incentivized me the first few weeks, but not so much now. They have increased my driver referral bonus (hiring my replacement) and...

    First time in weeks I didn't get a premium run before 6 am on a Monday. In fact, I've gotten so proficient at it, I even have lists of Consultants who request every monday at the same times: 5:15, 5:30, & 5:45. This way, once I get back to DT after dropping my regular off, I know exactly...

    Whose doing it and why? I work the Chicago and suburban Chicago area. I do not accept riders with small that do not have a car seat. Each one, a dozen so far, have all said that I'm the first to deny a ride to them. One was a woman had an INFANT. They're really pssd and say that the next driver...

    The new law that goes into effect July 1st makes it illegal to touch our phones to accept a ride if not in park. Please, please tell me I am wrong.

    This lady from Chicago/SanFrancisco seems to have dedicated her entire Twitter Feed to bashing UBER DRIVERS and it is kind of amusing. https://twitter.com/cupofchicago

    I should have known better and not have wasted my time on an out of state trip. Basically there is not compensation for doing this and drivers pretty much get paid less than the actual mileage of the trip. Never again! I would have scored better by just driving in the city.

    Lot of action in this pic. This isn't the last one to come. When turning right into the pit, there's a brief blind spot to where you can't see northbound Drivers with a Green light traveling 30+ into the pit. I think the declivity from the top of this intersection and the Rosemont exhibition...

    I've been doing this on and off for four years. I put in many hours trying to herd cats and organize drivers. The current Chicago ordinance would have been much worse without us. The fact remains that Chicago is two markets. There are city drivers wanting to avoid the suburbs and suburban...

    First off, my system is my system. It's what works for me. For the most part, it's opposite the mainstream. I use 5 of my 6 DFs during the highly concentrated AM rush. On good days, I get multi trips per DF. Perhaps this simple analysis wouldn't match cucumber to cucumber with your...
