    Uber put the maximum vehicle age up from 10yrs to 12yrs, now 15yrs! Wow! 15yr old rust bucket driven by drivers who aren’t being paid enough to maintain them. We all know the once a year check isn’t enough…

    I have recently moved to a new city. About 2 weeks ago, I chatted with Uber to change my city. That has been done. I have uploaded all of my new documents to show my new city and that I am legal to drive here. All of my documents are approved and the new background check is also approved. When...

    I am trying to decide whether it is worth getting a new vehicle to drive UberBlack. I live in Cleveland, Ohio and always see UberBlack vehicles at the airport, but wanted to know if it is worth doing. The rates I got from Uber support were $0.60/mile UberX, $0.63/mile Uber Comfort, $1.65/mile...

    This is a note i have pinned on my cars dash - Due to high fuel prices, car cost & inflated markets I am unable to offer air conditioning on UberX trips. Please select UberComfort, Premier or XL for air conditioning. Profit lines are EXTREMELY thin on UberX trips… You should consider printing...
  6. New York City
    Just wanted to compare notes with you X drivers. I drive a sedan in NYC doing only Eats and Doordash and average $600-$1,000 a week for 40 hrs. I've heard some of you complain you can't make $200 a day so I'm wondering why you all still do it. Just asking...

    This is for those who are out there driving now! How is it out there? I am assuming since the majority are staying home, it's a bit profitable for you? Do you do UberX, Eats (Learning that they removed pool (Thank GOD)). I am sure you don't want the competition and I am not planing on going out...

    SERIOUS REPLIES ONLY: The extra $600 in weekly unemployment benefits runs out at the end of July! The idea of those checks was that people can stay home instead instead of catching and spreading COVID-19 everywhere, BUT as it turned out (Which we already know) people make more money sitting...

    I was supposed to get picked up 2-3 minutes from when I requested ride. Was outside waiting 1 minute later. Noticed car icon on map was going in circles and pickup time fluctuating so I texted driver regarding this at 6:38 pm. Text "read" but no response. Texted again few minutes later asking if...

    How many of you are out there driving as of today and what it's like out there? Please be honest...

    How is there a $9 surge on Uber right now at Logan Airport but yet 145 cars in the queue?!? It just doesn't make any sense at all! Not too mention that I just counted 5 out state plates in one row. Mostly NY plates but the cars don't have any rental decals on them like most "GetAround" vehicles...
  12. San Diego
    It used to be I get requests consistently, so I ask this to all my fellow drivers out there. Has it been unusually slow? I’m sure this is all of California and not just San Diego...it has gotten severely slow. Requests seem to only be one per hour, at least it was for me today. Now I been...

    Did you find it odd that whenever you turn the app on, Uber punishes you for having it off for a while and won't send you a job right away but rather make you wait a half an hour or more despite being in a busy location? They will also start you off with a pool. I only started noticing this in...

    We all should write a book about these interesting characters that we meet everyday! The proud, the entitled, the humbled, the cheap, the fancy, the know it all, the jerk, the racist, the bum, the drunk, the student, the careless parent.. am I missing someone? Tell me in the comment below please..
  15. Advice
    I frequently get asked from drivers if I accept Uber poor or express pool. In my opinion, this two features are setup for Uber to milk more money by taking advantage of drivers. I personally decline 9/10 Uber pool/express pool requests. There is only one circumstance I PRIORITIZE Uber pool...
  16. Ratings
    I'm an Uber driver as well and I've noticed that my rider rating is stuck at 4.78 the entire day. I've treated my relatives from Australia with plenty of trips and was exploring different places in San Francisco today and did tourist stuff.
  17. Technology
    I've taken my car to the dealership in my town few times before for maintenance. One of the incentives that the adviser offers are a ride back and forth through Uber or Lyft with the Central and Concierge platforms where the fare is on them. Businesses, hotels and services like hospitals use...

    UberComfort is being rolled out in several areas. There is no list of approved vehicles for Comfort at this time. It also appears that all Select vehicles are not eligible for Comfort rides. Those who drive Select primarily count on business travelers who utilize business accounts and prefer to...

    I am a frequent UberX pax. When I get into an UberX and I am stressed about work, I do not want to tell the driver to turn the music down. I do not want to seem bossy. Sometimes the driver seems easy to ask. Sometimes they seem like stone idols who do not want to be bothered. What really...
  20. Melbourne
    So I'm currently signing up to become an Uber Driver in Melbourne (yay!) and I'd like to be well prepared before my first trip. I don't yet own a car and I'm still waiting for my driver accreditation to become approved. A few things I want to know: 1) Which car should I rent and from what...
