I must have done a good job because now I have two 2019 Suburban, a GMC Yukon...

    So I've been driving for Eats only since about September (2018). Through December, I was getting pretty good Boosts and Quests, but now it's horrible. I've heard that maybe new drivers get better stuff, so I'm curious if January is just a dead time and it will pick back up again, or if I...

    Yesterday, in the waiting lot on the north side by the humongous American flag, there was a DFW police officer moving people along from parking along the white fence. He was also scanning DFW permits. I know this is a fire lane, but lots of people park here. Can you get a ticket for this...

    Its currently surging in the DFW area, but when I switch to Uber Eats only the surge completely disappears, only to reappear when I reselect Uber X. Is this a new thing?

    Good morning all, I drive in Denton on the weekends, and have managed to make some decent tips at times. I do not compel nor mention tipping to my pax, but there have been some generous folks who have enjoyed my personality or conversation, and compensate me for an enjoyable ride. I'm curious to...

    I'm sure this had to have been covered before but I couldn't find a thread for it, so... Anything less than 8 minutes spent on the airport warrants a $4.00 toll. Anything between 8 and 30 minutes results in a $2.00 toll. 30 minutes to two hours is still only a $3.00 toll. What is the...
