How can you see where you are going before the pax sits in your car?
You can't...It's either cancel the trip (end trip) right after starting it and seeing the destination or asking the pax before you start the trip.
Those ct trips only make sense at night. Where the i no traffic coming back. If it takes you 40 min to stamford and you get 60 bucks net per say, you can get back to the bronx in about 20 min tops. So 60 bucks for an hour is a dollar a minute before car expenses so it makes sense. But any other time isnt worth it. When i work some afternoons and i see somebody is going to far jersey at say 4 or 5pm i kindly decline because it takes 35 min just to cross that god awful tunnel on the way back, not worth it.
I had a trip to NJ early in the morning. It was a nice older lady heading to Union, NJ from Soho (only 5.5 miles).
During our conversation, I asked her if she takes Uber often and she answered with "hardly". Well then I went on with my Uber 101 lesson lol. Explained to her that most drivers would have cancelled it if it was during a weekday since it takes hours to head back to NYC and that it would be common courtesy to call the driver and inform them that you are heading out of town.
Anyways, she felt bad and tipped me $20
