Hey so I’m new to the Uber game. I just had my first drop off in Nassau. Do you guys wait for a pickup back into the city or just head out ? I been here for 20 minutes not sure what to do.

no, uber gives you city rides heading back.
Yeah sure but like I said, you run the risk of getting ticketed. Last time I dropped off a person at Hicksville, got a ping right away but cops rolled up on me and asked me where I came from, and had me show the previous trips details to prove that I picked up the person in Brooklyn lol

Is there not a law called reciprocity, where you can drop someone off and bring a passenger back as long as they are going back into New York City. It’s in chapter 80 is it not ?

I think the point is it's not worth the trouble dealing with Nassau cops. What if I choose not to show my app when the pig wants proof that I came from the city. **** that noise. Come back empty bro or head to JFK and pray the queue is peas than 100.

Omg. You newb. Yea you can bring em back. But you would come from nassau to city at 67 cents a mile???[/QUOTES

Yea you should've thought about what u said there. Anything is better than nothing guy. I brought someone to JFK from there so I got lucky , I made $28. Way better than 0 guy.
I may have wrote the reply in the wrong box lol , but that still doesn't compare to your thinking

Did you get an instant ping? If not, cruise terminals for 10 minutes, see if you get a ping, If in 10 minutes you don't get anything you can leave JFK you won't get a ping. Just the tip :)
It seems as if you're asking did I get an instant ping in the airport ? I'm going to just explain my situation. I dropped off a pax from Greenpoint to somewhere near Jones beach. I waited about 20 min for a ping back to NYC and I got to stop someone off at JFK. Immediately as I dropped off the passenger , I received another ping for a pool and dropped the woman off 8 mins from JFK.

Was that a flight attendant? I hate them and always 1 star them for wasting my time by wasting my instant ping with such that short trip.

As opposed to 0 cents per mile? Absolutely.
I wish it would be 0 c/mi
It's more like 20/25 mpg = -12 c/mi

The important thing is how much time will we be wasting on those rides.
If one is a driver who is in the limits of the fatigue rule every week / day then s/he should choose the rides accordingly for best income/time outcome.
