Pick up a rider in Belmont, going to SFO, Terminal 3. As we approached the terminals, there was heavy traffic.
They asked: “ Can you drop me off in arrivals? It’s faster.”
I told them “Uber is not authorized to enter arrivals at all, we could be fined.”
That’s it, I dropped them off at Terminal 3 departures.
A couple weeks ago, someone wanted to get dropped off at the
Middle loop near the shuttle drop off and jaywalk across to the terminal, I told them, “no I can be fined for stopping there, you can be fined for walking there.”

That's why drivers like you and me rarely if ever get tickets. Some drivers are too accommodating and will pay the price.

It's not a big deal when they ask Sometimes they think it's helping you out or they are just in a hurry and you just tell them you can't because of tickets or something like that

Anybody would ask , how are they supposed to know lol

you can not drive Uber pool in SF or dang even Uber x without double parking or blocking a couple bicycle lanes , literally not possible lol

Double parking is the problem, most of us don't do bus zones anymore except at cal train because place makes no sense for newbies lol

I cancel alot of expresspool if theyre not standing in a place where i can pick them up safely without risking a ticket..
I also stopped driving for a month so i can have lower tiers .. ill never chase those 70+ rides a week where it makes feel desperate for a ride.. 25-30 rides a week are reasonable and makes me avoid being desperate
