So the poor individuals that were sitting there that don't know about this yet, are going to be pissed.
Yeah but don’t you think those people are part of the reason this program came about? Uber is sick of massive amounts of cars being in a lot and none of them accepting rides. They want people who will be more likely to accept rides and this is a possible way to do it.

Problem 1
Our market will mix airport rides with local rides within the same area because our staging area is actually 3 mi away from the airport. In a Walmart parking lot. So you can sit there for an hour waiting on an airplane ride and instead they send you a $4 local drop off with no priority pickup offer. The airport is north of the city and there's really not a lot around for I'd say 5 miles.

Problem 2
They offer a surge when there is no airport activity or riders in the pen, but they send you a local ride with a $4 surge which makes it $8, but they put you at the back of the line.

Problem 3
You are sent out of state dropoffs with no return possibility. You cannot pick up in Georgia if you live in Florida. So that's a money loser from the get-go.

Problem 4
Uber doesn't care about you.

Go east across the river a stones throw...lol

I get them here as well. But I'm not traveling 20 minutes to go to the airport to travel another 38 minutes to ponte vedra with a total of 50 MI for only $25.

What I need is, after dropping off after a 2-3 hour long drive to the airport, is a decent sized trip going back towards home.

Not in the opposite direction, not to California and not a short trip or fscking being held hostage by a stupid alogrithm 2-3 hours from home.
Bring on the DESTINATION FILTER !!! with in the AP's GEO Fence

Had one yesterday 107 do West , had to be LAX. 30 minutes to pick up that would have been 75 miles one way. I said screw it, Accepted, they cancelled. Lucky me.
