Should be careful with trips like these. Pax can say you never picked them up/picked up the wrong person to scam you and get a free transport service.

Thier phone isn't in the car with you so Uber can track the pax phone and see they weren't in the ride.

Not only that but you don't have commercial plates. Only commercial cars can do that kind of service

One time I got a job to go to a sushi restaurant and pick up food and bring it to jfk. The guy was Jewish and said the airport dnt have kosher food and had to feed his family.

I have TLC plates
Even Worse..
Cause you are bound by TLC regulations:

  1. (i) No Property-Only Transport. A Driver must not transport property, except blood or vital human organs, unless such property is in the possession of a Passenger.
§54-15(i)

Fine: $100

Apparently only hospitals can use us as a carrier...

Imagine somebody fraudulent says " I gave the driver an enveloppe with $500 in it to take to my son/ brother / friend .... an it wasn't there... "

Good luck clearing your name afterwards.. and it happened to 2 drivers that I know

I guess I'll have to take my chances then, if I feel there's a bad vibe then I won't do it. Thanks for the info.

Damn, I never knew about this. I've had many trips where I just have to drop something off. Didn't know it wasn't allowed
Maybe you still don't know. Just pretend and carry on. These guys screaming "illegal" will do a street hail in a hot minute. ...and the fine is only $100 compared to street hail, which is like $500 minimum.
