I made $85 in 5 hours. Not great I know, and had to do a lot of UStool trips, but at least it was something. I only drove from about 6pm to 11pm.

I am sorry this happened to you man. So I drive all night in precisely those areas from time to time. Wednesday is a very bad night for this area. But last night from 1-4 I drove the same areas incl NW DC and the Olney area and got 6 rides. Not great but almost all at least 8 - 20 miles. I've found on T and W in these areas it's a different approach than drunk nights but the rides are there. But I Grant you, Silver Spring was not good Lots of drivers. But a solid group of pax every night12:30 to 1:30

I drove last night between 9pm and 12 am and it was so dead in DC... drove through Georgetown into Chinatown area and I finally got a ping after about 15 minutes.

However, after a few more pings, there was a HUGE surge at SW waterfront after the Lumineers concert. Also another huge surge at Capital One Arena after JZ concert.... caught a 1.6x then two 2.8x pool riders... ended up making close to $85 by the time I went home at midnight.

That's why you shuffle to increase your profit.
I have come to shuffle 3 trips per 1 completed trip.
I end up getting paid for not moving 1 inch LOL
Todays stats from 6am to 10am are
Total miles driven including dead miles = 42
Total pay out $97.

LOL

Hope this can help.
I stop driving slow hours.
Morning rush 7to 10
Came back 4 to 11m
Double the money I been making lately.
Accomplish the small quest.
Drive on boost without turning app off on rush hour
If you stsrt the second or third tier in the allowed time , you can milk it till you finish 3 consecutive trips.
Seems like not much but you add the boost, the consecutive trips bonuses and the quest and you may have 400 extra .
My goal this days is over 1k for no more than 40 hours.No longer than 4 hour shift with a 15 min brake in the middle.Need to walk around the car.
Getting too rusty on knees and legs for being seating for long.
