    Hey Uberpeople, I’m here to share something thats been going on for the last 2 weeks. I have a friend that received a Lux Suv request on 8th st by the the Soccer court, he picked up 6 passengers going to Pompano Beach. (Nice trip) when he was in i95 by the 195 exit he started feeling Dizzy and...
  2. New Jersey
    So I get a 4.99 rated pool PAX (45+ 1.7x) ping from the heart of Newark. Something seems off, yet I had a good feeling so I took the fare. Sure enough, I pick up a white girl in her early 20s and the trip is going to South Jersey (as opposed to other areas) Basically, another Uber driver...

    Saturday(technically Sunday), at around 2AM, I got a long trip request from Lyft—it’s annoying that Lyft lists it as 45+ minutes rather than 60+ minutes that it was. Regardless, I had my mind set on not turning such a money-making trip, as this has been by far my slowest post-holiday, pre-MMDW...
  4. Toronto (Ontario)
    I've noticed that it's become increasingly difficult to get long surge trips during the morning rush. Maybe it's just general driver saturation but I noticed that today for example I had to cancel 33 trips in order to get a long surge trip LOL. Thoughts?

    Maybe it's an Austin (TX) only bug but during the past week 90% of the Uber "60+" & "45+" trips have been much shorter. Personally, I had the issue 5 times in the past week ... and yesterday's "60+" trip turned out to only be 17 minutes long. It's happened to me both at the airport & COTA ...

    Bay st to Blue mountain. 2 hours 41 minutes to go and 1.5 hours deadheading to Mississauga

    120 mile UberSelect unicorn. The guy ran his 38ft Sea Ray aground in Lake Erie. Ripped off both props. Select unicorns do still exist!
  8. Pay
    Hi Drivers, I recently had a trip from the ATL airport to Knoxville, TN and when I first completed the trip my fare totaled $267 originally with a 1.3X surge. After 2 days of waiting for payment I end up only getting $200 instead for the really long trip. I'm contacting Uber currently to...

    I’m heading two hours away for vacation, and would like to optimize my time by taking riders. Newbie here- what’s the best way to do this? I’ll put destination in, but will it pull me off the highway to get people? I’m not opposed to getting off for a few minutes but it’s a toll road so I don’t...
  10. Austin
    just heard that a friend of a friend recently took an Uber from Oklahoma City to Austin (400 miles) - no clue on how much she paid; but that 1 trip probably made the driver’s week and he had a lot of dead head miles to get home. My personal longest trip was ABIA toDFW

    It was Sunday, around 6 pm, un San Francisco. I had 23 trips left to get the weekend promo. I would normally complete 23 before 1 am but something weird happened that Sunday: It seemed like 90% of the trips I was getting were long trips. They were long enough that they could extend to an hour...

    So last night I got a long trip request. I thought, "Great. I'll drive them an hour or so away, make a killing, and then be home in time to get a good night's sleep." Boy was I wrong. The pax was going from my home area in northern Delaware down to the DC suburbs. Uber said this was a 2 hour...

    Trip 1 today: less than a mile pickup, but when I started the trip, it was heading south to Apollo Beach, not West into Tampa. 17.28 miles farther from where there will be boost tonight. Trip 2: as I'm looking for the best way North, I get a trip a mile away. He us going to Ruskin...South...

    What do you guys think is a fair price to drive 4 adults to New York and back on the same day?
  15. Los Angeles & Orange County
    So I pick up a pax and he’s going 3 miles. He ask if I wanted a long trip. I said “what? You’re going to change your destination?” He says oh no, I was going to Mcdonald’s and then to Home Depot. Wtf is wrong with people? Oh and lyft keeps adding second passengers after I press the...
  16. Kansas City
    I am driving from Columbia MO to KC area for Thanksgiving and vice versa on Friday, but I have plenty of space in my car for passengers. I think it'd be awesome to get paid for a trip that I would take regardless so I was trying to find a way to seek out a long trip from a rider with a similar...
  17. Long Island
    Enough with the sadness, just wanted to hear some memorable or long trip stories... My longest one was from bridgehampton to manhattan but without a passenger. They only wanted me to take some bags which I was barely able to fit because they ran out of room in their car. But was on the labor...
  18. New Jersey
    I had the strangest day ever. At around 10 pm, I couldn't log into my uber account. I thought the night was lost. As I got home from work at 11:30, I all of a sudden logged on. I decided not to drive the usual 2-3 hours on Friday nights. Out of curiosity, I went online at around 1:00 AM. I...
  19. Portland
    I usually don't drive on Sundays but since there was a guarantee, I figured why not. Started at about Noon and got my first ride from Vancouver to the downtown Portland. I figired it was gonna be slow, and I was right. I drove around for a little bit then parked. I got tired of sitting at that...
  20. Austin
    While driving for Lyft in the Kyle, San Marcos area on Sunday, 1/29/17 got a trip from Kyle to Houston around midnight. Trip total pay = $188. Nothing to brag about, but not too bad for a slow Sunday night. Longest trip yet as a TNC driver. Just saying - you never know where the next trip...
