    I was supposed to get picked up 2-3 minutes from when I requested ride. Was outside waiting 1 minute later. Noticed car icon on map was going in circles and pickup time fluctuating so I texted driver regarding this at 6:38 pm. Text "read" but no response. Texted again few minutes later asking if...

    I dropped a kid off at a college in the city. There were lots of kids walking around like classes had just let out, so I figured I'd stick around and see if I could get a rematch. Sure enough, I got a ping in a couple minutes. I was close enough to the pin that I didn't even have to move the...

    The whole city of Philadelphia is Surging. A big fat surge covering the city. I got three rides in it before it was gone. It was too big, and lasted too long to be a fluke. Surge, surge, surgety surge.

    This is Philly. Don't know what to make of it. Don't know if I need a gun or a sense of humor. I was a captive audience. Cars lined up behind me. Everybody watched. Nobody beeped. I guess it's OK to post this, since the guy wasn't a pax. Crazy Guy

    I picked up this gentleman and his wife in Old City around 1pm today. He was one of those front runner Philadelphia fans that doesn't know jack shit about basketball and is clearly along for the ride. He had the Eastern Conference ALLLLL figured out. Here was his plan: Pax: "Well, we win today...

    Penn Students. The elite. They walk in the middle of a busy intersection while optically conjoined with their Iphone +++ They say "yaaasss' "I'm living my best life" & brag about their Insta fans (LOL just kidding) "but like tots's seriously..." They are the future leaders of science, medicine...

    Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and will be new to the area next week. I used to do Uber in NJ when I was in college a couple years ago, but have never done it in PA before. My question, as I'm coming back from being out of the country for a couple years I rented a car from Lyft's...

  11. Surge
    I live in South Jersey and usually drive in Philadelphia which happens to be 20min away from me. I have to pay a toll to go over there and it’s worth it because of the amount of rides you get as well as higher payout. Looking for a way to see the current live Uber driver map in the neighboring...

  14. Lehigh Valley
    Will be doing my first Uber trip tomorrow. Needing to do this as a full time job until I can get off disability and go back to my regular job (Also looking for other employment if anyone out there is looking to hire). All I've seen is how dead it is in Lehigh Valley on these forums, so my...

    Had a fare take me to Philly Airport for the 1st time on Tuesday. I have to say, I really liked the setup they have down there. A que system they BADLY need in EWR, the TNC lot near the terminals AND a Wawa near by that you can still stay in the que while making a pit stop. Waited about 25...

I have enjoyed reading a lot of the other posts and wanted to share my experience thus far (in case someone like me is out there and it might help them). I'm between jobs right now and need to...

    Total expenses per month, including gas, lease, and insurance, are $1200. That doesn't include Scotch Guard or car washes. Never done this before so I have a few basic dumb questions -- 1) If you drive 1000 miles a week, can it be profitable? 2) Is it possible to drive 1000 miles/week? 3) How...
