    I kid you not. These are real questions I have been asked by pax. Why can’t you give me both names? Can you wait while I finish this cigarrette? Why can’t you pick me up where I’m at, instead of the pin? Why can’t we bring open beer in the car? Why don’t you like loud music in the car? You...

    I plan to use the standard mileage rate this year. My understanding is anytime the app is on and I am online and I am accepting rides (even in destination mode) I can count those miles towards SMR deduction. My question is can I count any other miles with the app off ever, that relate to...

    Due to catching the flu that's been going around and cold temps, I took a three week hiatus from the daily grind. Launching the app had me update, which is fine, but then the boost zones are not showing. If you don't work for a couple of weeks, do they remove the boost zones until you work to...

    I'm not too concerned about cleanliness, maintenance, and appearance both exterior and interior as those should exceed potential riders and uber's expectations with ease.

  19. Las Vegas
    Hi there, I recently was told by a friend to join Uber to make extra cash when I am done with my day job. I figured that since it is always busy at night, especially here in Las Vegas, that due to tourism people take rides from cabs and I assume from Uber as well to get them to places. And since...
