snow

  1. Toronto (Ontario)
    We got a piddly little 15-20cm. Most of St. John's got 76cm in the same time period. It was a Blizzard inside a Hurricane. I wonder what the SURGE looked like. Toronto, as usual, has it really easy compared to the rest of the country. This is INSANE...

    It’s snowing here in Chicago AGAIN. 3-5” expected throughout the day. With it being a Sunday (night) and many people having Monday off for Presidents’ Day, will I have a good (financially) night or not? I have AWD and am an exceptionally good driver, but the others on the road worry me...

    I thought maybe we could use a thread to keep those who will be driving updated of: - Conditions Incidents Main Road/Freeway Closures Main Road/Freeway Heavy Backups Any help from fellow drivers and people at home, watching news/traffic cameras and maps would be greatly appreciated...

    Well, it's started! If I like ya, stay home, warm, comfy, and safe until it's over. If I don't, go GIT that $$$! There are people out there that need you for their minimum fare, round trip drug runs! Can't be leaving them twitching in the wind and snow, yanno! Seriously, stay home. Have a...

    "Highs could drop as low as the upper 30s by the beginning of next week along with some lower snow levels. We'll keep you posted on that." Bring it!
  6. Chicago
    Some people might not care at all about the weather. But if you care about your earnings and when to or not to drive you might care about it. So it looks like after a few “good” winters of rather mild temps and little snow, it appears both shoes are dropping in a big way and we are returning...

    We have been getting lots of snow lately in Denver. I decided to put newspaper on top of the mats to keep my car interior clean, replace used newspapers on the floor every few hours. But this lady I picked up today said newspaper on top of the mats such a Ghetto idea, looks very trashy. I did...

    Probably should put it in people's minds now before the roads become a free for all...

    When they do their 2018 public release in Arizona (which will be about 100 square miles centered around the Phoenix area), the cars will be driverless without operators. They made it pretty clear that the only humans in the car will be the riders who hail the Waymo. As of this point, the focus...

    Hello community, As per PTC licence, we are suppose to keep the tires on until April 30. If I take off my snow tires tomorrow, will i likely get "caught" by a by law officer in Toronto or Mississauga for not having the snow tires on?
  11. New York City
    started at 430pm today. refused to take anything less than 50% surge or more than 5 minutes away (unless 100% surge). 30 minutes wait time between min fare pings. wouldve made more accepting everything that came my way. I noticed that in many areas there were no pings even when it wasnt surging...

  13. Toronto (Ontario)
    Hello Community. Would like your thoughts on whether one should drive with the snowy conditions? The car would be moving a lot slower in the snow, so I would much less efficient in picking up fares and much slower in transporting the pax. Should I wait until some kind of boost/surge/power...

    Who is driving?
  15. Complaints
    Hi, Was 5 mins from home with a last ride in the car when I was pinged. (late evening.) Feeling a little greedy I accepted (while driving.) It was below freezing in Icy conditions... actually quite treacherous. (thought it was a quick ride.) Nope. I tried to call the ride and ask if...
  16. Chicago
    Already looking ahead. 2-4” of snow forecasted later Sunday overnight into Monday. I see big Monday morning earnings (and maybe unsafe driving) in the snow globe crystal ball. I call these the “nuisance snowstorms”. Not the huge storm that shuts down the city and nobody goes to work or...
  17. Chicago
    We all know NYE is tomorrow and its been discussed in just about every way possible. But, I think tonight has the possibility to provide usual Saturday evening demand, if not busier than normal. 1. The obvious: Its Saturday, its cold, and snow on the ground (I've seen many vehicles in which...
  18. Toronto (Ontario)
    Anyone got any ideas on keeping the outside of the car as clean and tidy as possible during the thaw-freeze cycles we get here in London??? A daily wash may help - but it's also going to get very expensive, very quickly!
  19. New York City
    I'm seeing and always see these clueless drivers driving around with dangerously fogged up windows because they don't know how to use the climate control system. All you have to do is set the temperature to 68° or 72° and press AUTO. The system will take care of your fogged up windows and...
