There's nothing special about thursday night anymore, you'll see. The crowd is not there yet. It will be thick the next day by noon (yard fest), up until 5am sunday morning. You may have some extra rides though because its supposed to rain all thru homecoming.Sure you hope u dont drive in the rain without surge.Wow not even Thursday night?
there will probably be lots of rides during the day saturday,but if its surges,people up people at howard (especially people who dont live here) will not be going far. Most trips (if students or people related to the homecoming) will be going from Howard to downtown,or even U street areas (party zones).I always do well at Howard's Homecoming. I do not hang around the University that much, but I seem to find the Alumni and Alumnae all over the City.....a pretty nice crowd, too, as a rule....................
I will drive in the rain for "regular rate"; regular taxi rate, that is. Rarely do I drive UberX on the weekend. Almost always, I drive the cab. Most of the Howard homecoming crowd that I get come from street hails around the City. Most of the callwork that I get from it comes either from Uber Taxi or my own company. I drive by Meridian Hall that weekend, frequently, and manage to snag all sorts of callwork out of it. I do not deadhead there, mind you, nor do I pass street hails or calls for it, but, if I am close, I will head that way.Dont drive in the rain for regular rate
..........the equivalent of a 2,1 surge in the City, at least..............................ahah yeah, taxi rates are good rates
yeap, i was really talking about Uberx drivers..."If you are logged on and hit something, do not expect us to pay. If you are logged off, signed out and hit something, we will pay". As this is "supposedly", I do not want to put it to the test, if I do not have to do so. Sadly, those of us who live in the District of Columbia can purchase neither a TNC endorsement nor proper commercial insurance for this. Those of you who live in the suburbs can purchase either of those.
Actually today will be the start of the events and one of the major events is FUTURE and his performance starts tonight along side 50 Cent at Echostage. Today will be the only time 50 perform with FUTURE... The other nights it will be him along so they are expecting huge crowds tonights.No, just Friday and Saturday night as usual
Basically, but don't forget a lot of out of towners so they will need a ride there and back. Some will leave early and some late so you can do trips back and forth.So basically just the let out will surge. Be out in the rain at 3am, I'll pass, because they'll all be going from echo stage back to Howard University area
