    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...

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...

    Sometimes I want to ask out of town passengers to come up front to see the great view of the most magnificent skyline. For me this is often coming from the north side and the Westin wall is the least interesting of the approaches. (I always watch for the ascending vapor in winter months.) I...
