    How is the market in Detroit? I haven't uber since the summer and my job has now closed its doors, will I be able to make 600 a week with uber? Has it been a dead zone or is it kind busy? If you don't mind me asking how much did you make last week driving?

    The birthplace of America's auto industry and driving culture will soon have one of the world's first plants making driverless cars. Alphabet's Waymo has picked an idled American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings facility in Detroit as the site where it will equip vehicles made by Fiat Chrysler...

    What have you found to be the best way to maintain your car? Are you doing most of the service yourself? Or are you going to some of the local mechanics?And what are the big maintenance areas? I'm thinking about starting a business that specializes in Uber/Lyft maintenance and cleaning - but...

    120 mile UberSelect unicorn. The guy ran his 38ft Sea Ray aground in Lake Erie. Ripped off both props. Select unicorns do still exist!

    it shows the surrounding surging like crazy . I’m here / doing SELECT and it’s moving better than usual . But with all the surge around the prices are the same . So it doesn’t surge from the inside the airport or what ? I accepted a fare two days ago it was showing 2.3 surge and it came out...

    I've been driving Lyft for a couple weeks and learned that if I drive a nicer vehicle I can get a rate increase. As of right now I get a bit as soon as I turn the app on but I keep getting rocked with small fare rides. Anyone using Select in metro detroit? How long in between fares? Is it...

    Someone gave me this code last summer at DTW. It was a group for the uber drivers at dtw to coordinate surge fares. Forgot about it. There has been mention of it. Yes it was and is real. Rules: I was told rules when given the code. 1. Stay offline until surge is 1.4x. Then let everyone know...

    It appears that there is a Tigers game each day this week at Comerica Park. Do these games on weekdays have a lot of demand for rides?

    Hey guys/gals, Be mindful of your fares at DTW when there is a supposed surge. Twice last night there was a 1.8-2x surge at the airport and I was one of two cars in the que. Yet, when I got the ping, there was no multiplier and thereby no surge included in my fare. I contacted Uber and they...

    3 days ago I made $400 at the airport. No other drivers we're there. Not even black cars or suv. I was and have been select only. It was great and I expect this will not happen again for a long time. Now... There are 100 uberx drivers in queue on a Thursday... Hahahhahahaha.. Ahh...

    I need to order a car for my husband on March 22nd at 6:30 PM from Dearborn, MI to take him to the airport in Windsor. On the app it lets me order the car, but I want to do it with someone I already have planned to have their passport with them. My husband would pay the 10 dollar toll fee for...

    If we could communicate with each other. Like a long-term group chat at the airport. HOW MANY of you here would try to work together? How many of the actual drivers at Airport look at this??? If you drive there please cast a vote on the poll. If 100 people hit this poll than that means there is...

    I am done with uber specifically. Ubers upfront pricing is a bigger fraud then I originally though it was, the upfront pricing is a huge scam that effects the drivers more than we as drivers may be aware of. My last week I asked riders what they paid. Uber took 58% and that is NOT INCLUDING...

    I don't want to drive for uber. After that question and answer thing on Facebook. I see they raised their safety fee. Did minimum fares drop? They were $2.88. Was just wondering...

    I literally vacuum my car 3 times a day. Have a portable. I have great black leather interior that I wipe down after almost every rider, car is 2 years old. My rating is steady 4.9. Driving for a year. Car smells new rides new. I drive select usually. Select has been extremely slow for me for...

    Everyone at dtw i hope you see this because this is important! 1. GO OFFLINE, park where you park and wait. go offline until the queue goes to 1 car and surges. it does this every single time within 2 minutes of 1 car in queue. 2. this way you will not receive requests from outside of the...

    Hey everyone hitting dtw for uberx. Little insight we just discovered. Anywhere withong the airport area is apparently broken. If you want a ride sit North of i94. Something with the queue is not working. Drivers are saying they've sat in North lot for 2 hours. The second we drove North of 94...

    Unfortunate reminder that little "Good" happens at 3:54 in the morning... Glad to see the driver defended himself enough to escape alive... http://www.wxyz.com/news/region/detroit/uber-driver-kidnapped-carjacked-overnight-in-detroit ___ DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit police are investigating after...
