I searched a little online and in this group, and couldn't find a simple map of Uber's Chicago territory. Where can I find this? Hoping for a graphic. Narrative description would be second best.

I think this would be a second question: What are the boundaries for a Chicago driver to start a fare (without secondary market permission). I know blackout cities like Rockford and Indianapolis prohibit Chicago driver fares. So minus blackout cities, are Chicago drivers could receive pings in all adjoining states?

Thanks, Zap Very cool. First thought was, dumbasses extend out to the middle of the lake. But that line is right up against the territorial boundary of Michigan, and hints at a definition which allows Illinois and Michigan to be considered "adjoining states."

I've only Uber'ed about as far east as Hammond for Horseshoe Casino and for Perogi Fest, then south and west back toward Illinois. So can I still get pickups beyond Gary?

Speaking of maps, does anyone have an map of the consecutive ride zone. I've downloaded it from my phone and blown it up, but it's hard to see the exact boundaries. Also, sometimes I've noticed when I know I'm in the zone my app doesn't have that 0/3 pop up.

I think it was changed a year or two ago. I had taken a pax to a country music fair just across the border. I got a return trip but the pax needed to walk a short distance to cross into Illinois to get a pick up. A few months ago I bad a ride from ORD to MKE and started getting pings after the drop off.
