Noting in Avon after that one. I had to go back to Newington because I headed home..I didn't want to drive anymore after that trip.Is there much business in the Avon area, or did you have to deadhead back to Hartford?
If that was the case, the trip was a loser for you.
It would seem to me that this is the kind of problem that the Uber system could address where taxis could not because of the cab industry's state and city regulated fares.avon is drying up.no students in area and drivers are sick of driving 15 mins to get to someone just to drive them a short ride to some shopping area on RT44. many drivers bailing on area , which in return causes riders to have to wait 15-20 mins for a driver, so as time goes they bail on uber. the farther west you go on rt 44 the harder it is for both sides
When I was driving a cab, my general limit was 5 minutes.That's why you only accept rides 10 min and under, with a possible surge exception. You should have used the "on the way home" feature of your going to complain about distance home.
Good strategy, but know that Uber will slap you on the wrist you and eventually shut you off.That's why you only accept rides 10 min and under, with a possible surge exception. You should have used the "on the way home" feature of your going to complain about distance home.
If you get one or two tickets, when they run your background check at your one year anniversary, you'll get deactivated.You averaged about 27 MPH. That's the problem.
This is why I:
1) Fly by night. I am hauling about 5 MPH above the speed limit with a passenger and 15-20 MPH above on the way to a ping. When cruising I am well below the speed limit, because it saves gas and decreases the chance of me whizzing past an exit or turn as I accept a ping. Driving in heavy traffic is not very profitable unless there is a surge.
2) Stick close to the interstates and other major highways. It helps you get to pax quicker and increases the chances of your ride being one where you can make fast miles.
