short trip

  1. Los Angeles & Orange County
    Couldn't help but laugh at this one. Had a pickup at NAMM this year. Took me about 10 minutes to get to the pickup in the roundabout at Hilton/Marriott. Picked up Dave outside the big white badge tent. I welcomed him, then checked the destination. I looked at the map and glanced at the...
  2. Atlanta
    Anyone here ever do destination rides only?
  3. Toronto (Ontario)
    After 4 years and over 4000 trips, this has to be the record shortest trip I've ever done. She wasn't really dressed well for the cold, so, that could be why. At least she didn't order Pool.
  4. Ratings
    I received a 1 star rating tonight and later i found out the rider paid almost 25 bucks for a very short trip due to surge. Does the rider really get a full refund just because he rated me 1 star?
  5. Melbourne
    Hi All, A little rant here - I use uber to get to work every morning. The trip is rather short - 10 min at most and I have to get a car because there is no pedestrian access - so it's not safe to walk. I have been doing this for almost a year. At first I noticed (when I checked only, about...
  6. Australia
    This has to be the shortest trip and easiest $5.25 I have ever made. Not sure I even pressed the accelerator.
  7. Brisbane
    I was recently sitting on Wynnum road at about 8pm when I got a ping. The pin drop was literally 100 mtrs behind me, but as it is a one way section of road, I rang the rider and told them of my location, and asked if they wished to walk to the car. They declined and asked me to pick them up. I...
  8. Los Angeles & Orange County
    I get a ping for a pick up in Hollywood. I am near Franklin and Highland during rush hour which seems to be 24/7 in that part of town. They are 3 min away but from the spot I am in, there is no quick and easy way to get to their location. They call me and I assure them I am on the way. At...
  9. San Diego
    So I happen to be by the 125 when I get a ping 3.9 miles away across the 125 ($2.50 to $ 4:00 in toll) to get to the pick up address but becomes over 5 miles with alternate route. So I contact the pax and find out they're going 1.7 miles away from pick up to destination, which would equate to $...
  10. Advice
    Curious to see how people would handle. You are driving. You get a ping. Ping is 5 minutes away. You accept and drive to Ping. You arrive. You wait about 3 minutes. PAX comes out with medium size bag. You put bag in trunk open rear door for PAX. Pax gets in and you start the trip. 1/4...
