    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...

    Some drivers are newer and pick up anyone and anything. The rest of us have become selective. Hopefully this will help newer people figure out where to draw the line when it comes to driving for free. On an "average" scenario, what's the max you will drive for a pick up, and why? What's the...

  4. Philadelphia
    So yesterday I had a ride from northern Delaware to Newark, NJ. When I got there, I didn't go offline, but I didn't expect to get anything because it's outside the Philly market. But to my surprise I got a ping in Newark 5 minutes later, and I was able to accept it. Have they changed things to...

    I no longer see in app how many passengers to expect at pickup after accepting trip request. Where should I be looking for this info? In fare details I no longer see a calculation based on the number of people riding. When did I start giving free rides?

    we try to pick up the order as soon as possible, so sometimes we need to pass a tollway but uber didn't pay anything for tolls before picking up the order and it is not good!

    Hello Drivers, I am in trinity, tx 75862. I need a ride to Bush International on March 27. I'm heading back to Nome Alaska.

  17. UberEATS
    Normally I don't look at this too closely but I'm trying to decide if doing double pickups makes more money then doing single pickups. It always seemed like I was losing money doing double pickups because when you do a double pickup the driver only gets paid for 1 pickup and 2 drop offs plus...

    I am from the IE, work in the IE, and do quite a bit in the IE but not a full time driver. One of the places in riverside that drives me nuts is university village. More importantly because people do not know how to pin their pick up points correctly and do not like picking up their phones...
