I cant file my TNC license until monday. But supposedly I can pick up in Katy before I get my TNC so I guess I can go ahead and try tomorrow.

Cool, good luck. From my experience, pings were few and far in between out there, because Uber sucks and is an utter failure of a company that I'm going to thoroughly enjoy watching burn to the ground.

I work Securtiy at night as well And I do Canvassing for a guy running city council during the day. So my hopes is I can Get some pings While I canvas and can basically work both during the day. knock on some doors then pick up a ride then knock on more doors rinse and repeat. But I got to have my TNC for the area I am going to be Canvasing.

But on the plus side My security Job is in Willowbrook and Jersey Village is right here and it is outside HCL so I could pick up there in the mornings to when I get off at 6 am maybe there will be some pings for people needing to go to work. Atleast pop my Uber Cherry.

I will refrain from posting from my phone from now on as to keep the grammar nazi's at bay. Thank you for your constructive criticism though. I do like to keep things professional. I guess I could proof read more as well before I post.

Katy is great. Tons of $30 runs. When I go I'm too busy to leave. You should go there.

Don't let the trolls get to you! Most of us are on our phones and autocorrect is of the devil sometimes. Good luck and drive smart!

There is sporadic business in Katy, you will need to be online for a while though.
I live there. I do not leave till I get a ping. I will not chase real or imaginary surges or add dead head miles.

The other thing to keep in mind is that "Katy" is a large, sprawling area. The school district covers about 180 square miles. There are a lot of drivers out here too. I've seen at least 10 different ones at gas stations & car washes based on the stickers and there are likely many more driving without the COH TNC.

Katy fares generally fall into either the really short trip category (which are even less worthwhile because of their sporadic nature), or the long runs to downtown/midtown or the airports (which leave you with dead miles back to your GF's place unless you plan on working the rest of the day in Houston).

It's really no different than anywhere else that isn't your normal area. If you happen to be there and get lucky, so be it. But I would certainly not plan for any specific level of income.

Yea since I live up in Gunspoint (Greenspoint) I saw the Jersey Village wasn't in city limits and is closer I might try out that way as well but at this point I might as well wait till tomorrow and just have my TNC.
