Has anyone considered just working for a cab company and driving a company vehicle that's legitimate? Theoretically you could work for a cab company and have your uber app turned on to increase your odds of getting a ride request. Just keep it up till you get fired. Might be a good way to increase earnings. I know I've thought about it.

It's against the rules. If customer complains to Uber they dump you, if Customer complains to cab company, they dump you.

So, have you thought about just driving a taxi instead? What companies could give you similar flexibility to Uber?

None. You have to start hours before it gets busy to make sure you get a car then sit around and not get paid while you wait for it to get busy. You have to pay rent on the car even when you don't make any money. And they rent them for 12 hours straight. 888 does a 40/60 split. I don't trust their cars.

What if you keep Uber on when driving the taxi, then cancel the Uber ride but show up at the pickup location in the taxi? Do it when you're the only driver out there at 4 am and youll get people who will hail your taxi because they need to go to the airport and their Uber driver canceled on them. Best of both worlds: the Uber dispatch and taxi rates

Youll probably fall below the 80% acceptance rate real quick
