How did everyone do? Surge was nice I did $150 in under 5 hours. Didn't seem congested like normal when checking rider app. Today I felt like I was having fun again, like a true level 7 should. Even talked a woman who was blatantly against tipping Uber drivers to give me $3 lol. Looking forward to driving all day tomorrow

How did the subject of tipping come up? Curious how that conversation went lol.

Also I agree I had a good time this morning. $88 in 2.5 hrs, hardly any dead time. This evening was a different story. Stuck in Brampton. I have no idea how to get trips back to Mississauga from Brampton. I always end up deadheading home even with destination set. Got one small pool trip near Heartland Town Centre, that was it.

I did $170 in 6 hours

But that's still slow

Most of that was surge and short trips

I had 2 trips to airport

Question:

Do you guys max out all your destinations everyday?

I think I need to implement that more

Thoughts?

Only if it's a bad day. I try to get at least $30/destination used. Then I go another way obviously. I think I used all 6 only once

When they ask me how busy it is for a driver i tell them it was decent until the tips came on the app and everyone came back to do uber because they thought they would be millionaires and it goes from there. Easy to bring in the tip talk when they bring in Lyft talk. Also whenever tip talk happens I always tell them in the middle "im not trying to pry tips off of you this is just a good conversation " I think it probably works around 50% of the time

from your experience, does destination give you priority or better chances of pings?

I haven't driven Uber since August 20, due to personal circumstances and a cruise vacation to the Caribbean and Florida (escaped back just before the hurricane hits). I missed driving and will go back this week.

BTW Uber is all over the place in Florida (Miami and Fort Lauderdale) - and they probably make a killing due to the cruise industry and tourism in the state in general. I also saw couple of Lyft cars.
