  1. Miami
    Was listening to NPR radio and heard the announcement. Ultra was voted back in for Bayside Park in 2020.
  2. Atlanta
    Covering it all in one swoop. With the need BS surge, if DRIVERS are gonna fight back then the most critical time to not drive/get shifty is rush hour. 7-9am and 5-7pm. Boycott or play hard ball in the Main Areas. Downtown/Buckhead. I understand everybody can't just flat out quit so this is...
  3. Toronto (Ontario)
    I understand that this doesn't work for a full-time UBER driver, or even for other Mississauga/Suburban part timers, but my system is ridiculously simple, and I'm only doing LYFT - I could make far more if I installed the UBER app and did both: Drive after 10pm. (mostly on weekends.) Read...
  4. San Francisco
    So I’m curious what factors weigh in on the lack of traffic downtown over the past cpl weeks. I’m not complaining by any means but it’s been bizarre for SF to be so easy to navigate even with the giants at home, during am/pm rush, and with some major conferences (RSA, Blockchain) in town. I...
  5. Chicago
    I tried morning rush, I absolutely like nights better. I happen to like animated, social riders although I'm also fine with cell phone gazers or drowsy people. As a full time night owl driver: * GROUPS! Buddies, friends, BFFs, dates. They may engage me, or I may be a "fly on the wall" as they...
  6. Chicago
    Soooo I tried morning rush. Why do so many drivers swear by rush? Sure it is endless Surge, but the rides (and riders) are short, and never a dull moment, but it takes so much longer getting from Point A to Point B--less trips per hour. Yep I made a bunch of $2 rides. Yep I met my quest ($70 for...
  7. Milwaukee
    As a new driver in Milwaukee I have been trying to watch the trends to make more money. Best times to drive and of course the best areas. So far I seem to pick up my most pax between Bay View and the lower east side. To date I have only driven Friday/Saturday nights. I have also noticed that the...
  8. Milwaukee
    Hello, Uber partners of Milwaukee and surrounding areas! I have read several posts here but am curious to hear from more drivers about their experiences, likes, dislikes, earnings patterns, tips, et cetera. I have been driving for just a few weeks. Halloween weekend was my first time being...
  9. People
    Good morning Uber family, just looking to confirm who drives in my area. I'm relatively new, just trying to get the best out of everything Uber and it's experience has to offer.
  10. Toronto (Ontario)
    Anyone else having issues with the APP going off-line? Last night it happened to me a few times and it can be frustrating when it doesn't allow you back online.....
  11. Cleveland & Akron
    In case anyone pick up in East Bank of Flats, Uber sent designated areas for Drivers to wait and pick up message with map via through platform of app... West 10th, roundabout by Coastal Taco and Beerhead... See attached pics of message.
  12. Cleveland & Akron
    Anyone have issues with valet?
  13. Miami
    Good Evening, I'm a part time uber driver in New Jersey and thinking about moving to Miami and becoming a full time uber driver. I want to know is how much is the average weekly salary for a full time uber driver in south florida?
  14. San Diego

  15. Toronto (Ontario)
    I usually drive afternoons and evenings. About 2-2.5 weeks ago I completely stopped accepting Pools because I had enough of stress and BS. Now it is my observation that (1st) I don't receive pool requests anymore, (2nd) I started to get overall less UberX than before, and (3rd) those that I get...
  16. Tampa

  17. San Antonio
    I'm an Army Vet driving while completing an online MBA program and its going okay. I've been driving for Lyft about a week and my background was just cleared by Uber(should be driving in a few days). Lyft has been good and I've received tips on 95% of my rides. Still trying to find good spots...
  18. Atlanta
    With it being so hard to catch a valuable surge ride, I think its time to push for flat rate trips to the airport. I think $25 after ubers cut from downtown/midtown is fair and give or take a little for the other areas. That would help all drivers out ALOT. I think if its not surging and u got a...
  19. Oklahoma City
    Recently I've noticed something in Downtown OKC on the weekends. Surge usually gets to around 3X-5X when the bars let out. But recently it's stayed at around 2X. Learn how to make the surge pricing go up. I flipped over to the passenger app while Downtown and saw sooooo many drivers online from...
  20. Orlando
    Orlando PD had at least 6 cars lined up and writing tickets to all of them for trying to drive through a bus lane. I wonder how many were ubers. As a reminder bus lanes are for buses not people who can't navigate one way streets.
