    Don't know if this is old news, was looking for a thread to answer my q's. Dropping off a rider at the Southwest departure gate and guy (rentacop) took a picture of my plates. I asked why and he let me know that we have to drop off upstairs. I asked him how much he ticket was and he said I'll...

    Hey guys, I am a brand new Fort Collins & Denver driver. I decided to do this because my truck broke down. Plus, I am a night owl. My first question is because I am renting through Hertz I have a quota I must hit in order for the car to be paid by uber. I am generally working between 9 pm...

    I've never bothered sitting in the queue to wait for rides before, but I'm curious if its worth spending a Friday or Saturday night just doing rides than going to wait again. What's the wait like in reference to how many cars are ahead of you? Is it like an hour per 25 cars ahead? Thanks.

    Hello! The other night I went to the DIA holding lot, East side by commercial lot, and it looked like it was closed. There was nobody there and there was a fenced off area that contained construction vehicles. Am I loosing my mind (certainly a possibility), is it closed or is it at a...

    So this morning around 8 am I dropped a passenger off at DHL on 75th on lyft. As I pull out of the parking lot there i get a ping to pick up at airport door 613. Was this just some glitch or is there testing for a rematch.

    I don't bother working the City because of bargin basement fare rates. Instead, I work the Airport. Perhaps a little too well, lol. When I starting making an entire day's haul on 5-6 DIA runs a day, I suddenly started having major problems with the app at DIA. Getting kicked outta the queue or...

    I had to reject 4 rides at the Final Approach parking lot so I know someone is doing it. Uber keeps kicking me out of the DIA queue

    Seriously, WTF?!?! It won't let me use any other road if I get close to the Toll road. It'll insist I make a U turn for miles before giving up. I have to map it out on the fly driving across the Denver frontier.

    The fine print of your RENTAL CAR agreement says you'll be charged $25 per contract to use: America's most expensive road. *That's $25 not including mileage* That's: 7 Miles = $42 to E-470. Don't be like me. Now I avoid E-470.

    I don't need to tell you guys that the DIA lot is insane and getting worse. Today I dropped someone off at the airport and then checked the lot. Lyft showed 175 people in the queue. What is it going to be like for Thanksgiving? Clearly, the herd needs to be thinned, but how? Should only...

    I've been Ubering for 2 years. I typically just drive Saturday nights downtown. Lately I have been kicking around the idea of driving early mornings to get an airport run before I have to go to me regular job. Is there a good strategy, or area that I should look for rides. I live in...

    I thought I'd start a new thread to share stories and discuss strategies about pickups and dropoffs at Union Station and how to compete against... Have you seen it? To me it looks like something right out of a Stephen King novel. So yeah it takes 37 minutes from Union Station to DIA if it...

    UBER: HEAD TO THE DEN STAGING AREA TO QUICKLY RECEIVE AN AIRPORT REQUEST. Wait times are short with only 7 cars waiting; sent at (Fri Jun 17 2016 06:05:00 GMT-0600). I received this text message upon arriving at DIA at six this morning. Does this mean that DIA officially has a queue system...

    Hello! I have an early morning flight tomorrow and think I'll need an uber pick up at about 5:30 a.m. How difficult is it to snag a ride and how far in advance should I book it? Also any idea as to the price range for this service from the Highlands neighborhood? Thanks very much for your expertise!

    Pop Quiz: Are the blue areas based on time in queue? Are you getting pings in locations other than the blue areas? Are those proximity based or time in line based? I've seen old posts from October, but nothing recently...

    Hello everyone, I've read a lot of the threads here and I'm curious to hear from some of the more successful UberX drivers who have maximized their earnings in Denver. It sounds like one strategy is to work during the day and prioritize DIA and some hotels, while another strategy is to work...

    I have noticed WAZE looses connectivity to its server when I go to DIA. Just about the time I get to the "Demon Horse" the app starts clocking and I get "Oh Snap!" messages. The GPS functionality continues to work but I continue to get the error messages until I leave DIA. It doesn't seem to...
