  1. San Diego
    I was in Walgreens today and staff were putting up Halloween merchandise. Decorations, candy, kids costumes. Halloween night this year is a Saturday and the last day of daylight savings. I think it was last year that Uber sent out an in app message that Halloween was the second best night of...
  2. Lyft
    Lyft's latest propaganda and lies arrived yesterday (Oct 29) but not seen until this morning. Interesting approach to their driver profile how one of their drivers reports on their night...which hasn't happened yet.

    15 for $18, Friday and Monday. Such generosity. I could probably do that just on Friday. My last quest offer was the Memorial Day 10 for $100.
  4. Los Angeles & Orange County
    I was driving last year and fell for the whole: it’s a high earning night bull. I got stuck in WeHo and made a whopping 15 bucks. Uber didn’t update their mapping with street closures and that got me in trouble. I’m staying home and good luck to the greedy.
  5. Toronto (Ontario)
    Around 2am last night, I get a PAX going from Mississauga to Hamilton. That is a $50+ ride, no problem, I will take that 30 min ride. Before heading back to the GTA, I figured, I'm at bar-close hours in the Hammer, might as well see if there are any pings on LYFT. It was wall-to-wall stacked...
  6. Chicago
    I wonder how many people are licking their chops for the upcoming weekend... Historically, Halloween weekend has been the second busiest period for rideshare. Right behind NYE. Case in point: Halloween fell on a Friday in 2014. Weather that day was some of the worst conditions to be out. Rain...

    Will you be driving ,and if so, will you also part take in the fun by wearing a costume? I call dibs on deadmjle
  8. Advice
    Who is wearing a costume for Halloween driving, and what is it going to be? Are you going cheap, or all out?
  9. Seattle
    Who's driving? Who's not? Its midweek so what are the expectations? What if it rains? Will that also put a damper on the pax festivities? Also, who's dressing up? Hint, I'm driving and I'll probably be dressed as Letty.
  10. Advice
    Did anyone here do it? If so, how did it go, was it worth it?
  11. Washington DC
    I realize that this past weekend was the “Main Event”, but I thought there would still be decent incentives for Halloween night? I think college kids will still go out and some of DC Millenials.. maybe just not out as late as Saturday night. - Any Ideas or Incentives ( Lyft doesn’t seem to give...
  12. Providence
    I'm plotting the shifts I'll work for Halloween and planning the locations I'll hit. Obviously there will be some party goers in Providence tonight. Wondering if there will be any surge? Anyone have the latest on weather tomorrow and thoughts on how it might impact demand/drivers on the road...
  13. Portland
    Day one, Friday. Began early afternoon, Went until about 330am. Nothing too crazy. Only 3 or 4 real costumes in my vehicle. Catwoman was the best. There was a jail guard and his female inmate, they smelled like an ashtray, but still good costumes. There were two seriously overweight gentlemen...
  14. Los Angeles & Orange County
    Really? My wallet has not won betting on Uber for the last two years. It's one of the biggest weekends of the year. (That is why we have found a way to supress the serge) We expect to see increased ride requests on the evenings between Friday (10/27) and Tuesday (10/31). (But don't expect...

    Tips for a spooktacular Halloween Hear from fellow drivers on how they prepare for a Hallowinning weekend. When to call your rider "Usually after two minutes I call if they don't show up." - Erik, Chicago When driving in busy or loud areas, communicating directly with riders can help...
  16. Los Angeles & Orange County
    Any of you see this vid or receive this offer? Apparently Uber sent out a promotion offering to pay certain drivers more the week before Halloween, 33% more, for a fee of $115. Would you do it? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ EDIT: To anyone who gets this offer and actually opts in - PLEASE report back on...
  17. Houston
    And your reasoning, please discuss.. This should get interesting! RC
  18. Stories
    I guess that's one way of showing them Enhanced video: Pops out of moonroof and points pistol around. Happened in front of Dat Dog on the corner of Frenchmen and Chartres in New Orleans.
  19. Los Angeles & Orange County
    The is no surge. Last year it was beet red. BEET RED. I made big bucks. This year I am home watching Dexter with my lactose intolerance cat.
  20. Advice
