I'm giving out three stars for shorties. One if its walking distance. Uber doesn't suspend riders unless they get a bunch of one stars. It's time to start using the system to warn fellow drivers about riders who only take short trips.

I start at dtla and I'm there by 645 in the morning, lately it's been a joke those ****ers abuse the service because they don't want to walk...yesterday with all the high surges all my rides were crap since none of the ****ers wanted to walk...I always call them out on it, I don't give a shit about them...stop abusing the ****ING SERVICE!

By 6 am you already missed most the Airport runs in DtLA. So stay away from the center of Dtla.

Without giving away too much, and burning the honey holes. Think about where commuters might be looking for longer rides, and just wait there until you get a ping next to where you stage. If you wait long enough youll get a long ride, but I can't guarantee that it will be surging.

You been at this for awhile and should have dropped off at those spots before.

Why not wait out on other 30 min and start with surge from your house?

I know man thank you.
I tried that before going to these places but dtla seems to work the best for me.
Just lately rides are so short I don't get it, more misses than hits
