Thanks. What about the signs that say bus taxi or permit holders before 11pm. Theyre in the town centre. All the local minicabs were going in not sure if uber was allowed.
You must be kidding. Since when needs uber permission? Show the local vermin that uber uber uber alles in der Welt!

Used it for 3 months with no issues. Used by Uber drivers all the time without issue. Be lucky!
Well said. The luck might be very much needed when they use it.

Thanks - the uber nav directs us through it. Do you know if it will direct around if its in the restricted time?
Yeah I would always ignore uber nav or google maps etc it will take you places you're not allowed. If if doubt don't go down any street with restricted access as the fine just simply isn't worth it. Tell the pax where to go. Remember that sign is the exception most don't allow private hire. Always use Reading West as pick up for train station the other entrances are a nightmare I always direct pax there.

I cannot care less, mate, if you use it or no. I am reacting to uber employee, Ben Sanderson, spreading all sorts of funny infos abt plying for hire to uber drivers in home counties, without checking basic facts.
I didn't read the Reading regulation, posted by mods1964 but given bensanderson's weak and laughable argument, that he have used it for 3 months and nothing from the council, it's quite obvious you cannot use the bus lane if you are not local and it's matter of time when they start to enforce it. So, be lucky

Can I ask you something Ben as it's uber strategy to force drivers to stay out of town to cover the pings and eliminate surge
Can an uber driver stay in reading or Woking and earn a proper day wage if you guarantee this I will switch on my uber and go Woking and stay there for a day just to prove u talking crap

Babs no matter what you are going to be told by Home Counties Uber driver, we know they can't make a day's wage (well maybe once a month)

I know a few of the guys who tried covering Slough and surrounding areas, always getting dragged out to do a Cippenham to Burnham Starion or a Gerrards Cross local to Gerrards Cross Station

They even had requests to pick up from Chalfont & Amersham whilst waiting Uxbridge.
Remember their minimum fare is £4 so £3 to driver who sometimes uses the whole £3 in fuel to reach the address and do the local trip!

Save yourself the time and don't bother touching Home Counties unless you're a part time waller
Only earn Lidl peanuts out there most days

Killing the surge to treat them punters

I would say the earnings are comparable with working outer london (Staines ashford feltham etc). Whether they are acceptable to you I don't know. I always average around £15 / 16 per hour.
