I have a friend that received a Lux Suv request on 8th st by the the Soccer court, he picked up 6 passengers going to Pompano Beach. (Nice trip) when he was in i95 by the 195 exit he started feeling Dizzy and...

    Hello guys, Newbie here in the NYC. I came across this guy telling me that he can rent his TLC plates for $150/week. The way it works is that he would register my car under his company’s name, and I could put the TLC plates on the car. Is this legit? Doable? I don’t want to do something...

    Hi guys. I just bought a new car! I drove both of my last 2 cars for Uber, they were both Honda Civic Hybrids. It went okay but the back seat was tight and getting 3 sets of golf clubs in the trunk was nightmarish. I considered Uber when I got my new car and I bought a Nissan Kicks. I sat in...

    Looks like they have no customers in San Diego. Spent 5:05 hrs last night at SAN . Home take was $0.00 . Spent the whole week so far 22 hours. And look at what I made this week.
  7. Australia
    Only an idiot of a company like Uber Australia which prices the transport service of a Uber SUV vehicle the same as Uber sedan vehicle. Not only is a SUV vehicle running costs higher than a sedan vehicle, a SUV normally have more space ie leg space, luggage space and is more comfortable. Why...

    Got a ping for select at local hotel. 5 girls get in and we are off. I am not happy about them ordering select with more than 5, but dont say anything. Then the person in the front gets a call that another person needs a ride too. So I tell them that you ordered Select not SUV. The person...

    I worked 18hrs and made only $360.53. I started working around 4:00 AM and did not get any black and suv job until 10:14 am. At some point I was thinking I was not going to make money.

    I heard that suv drivers are given more preference over the guy having a sedan or a car having xl option. If there are 4 guys at same location and all of them have different vehicles, so uber ll give the ping to the guy who ve suv (even when the ping is uberx) and the pax can get free upgrade...

    Hi, I drive a Toyota 4 Runner SR5 (5th Gen 2011). It has a third row seat I can pop off if I need to but it is cramped. It's made for kids. I don't really want to pop it up to Uber people. My main concern is that since I drive an SUV (white exterior and no leather inside) should I still be...

    I'd like to know what percentage of pings people are seeing for SUV? I figure my choices are get a very efficient UberX car (Prius), or get a minivan for UberX and UberXL (lower gas mileage) or get an SUV (even lower gas mileage yet) to I can do UberX, UberXL and UberSUV. I like the ability do...

    I understand that the SUV can get a higher rate, but what if a rider requests a sedan? Can the SUV take that fare at the sedan rate? Which vehicle will get more requests, SUVs or sedans? I'm thinking about either a used Lexus sedan or a Mitsubishi Outlander. I'd like your opinion. Thanks!

  16. New York City
    Why is it yhth every time I see a suburban, Tahoe, an Armada or even a pilot tlc driver, their always small in stature people and the rest of us big guys are driving sedans. I know they can't see well because they nearly sideswipe you every time. What kind of dumb appeal is thrre to sit in a...

    This also applies to Lyft, Gett, Via, etc. I'm just curious of the pros and cons between the two. And while you neysayers, believe that driving for apps suck, that's been well covered and not what this thread is about. Especially since I noticed that some of these "bonuses" sometimes excludes...

    Sorry this is such a long post. I am brand new to Uber and am so excited in my new job role! Facts: 1. I am disabled and haven't worked since 1993. I only make $848 a month. 2. I never ever considered Uber or Lyft, since I didn't want to put the wear and tear on my personal car. 3. My...
