Is it worth driving on Sunday with all the checkouts and not being able to drive to airport?

Just asking as I don't want to put unnecessary miles on my vehicle just to tell people "can't help you."

You never know till you try it. Some people might do good and not.. some who do good might tell you not good.. so less competition. Just saying.

So you're here just to drive from hotel to airport, from airport to hotel, from hotel to airport, and back and forth and back and forth.... when the residents of Vegas can't get a cab?
What a schmuck!

I have found Sundays AM to be good at least in S CA. One night a few months ago I started out at midnight Saturday from Newport Beach ended up in LA and finally by the airport at 8 a.m. quit and grossed over $300 and 8 hours. Last night drove to Temecula and ended up doing very well till 4 a.m. Net $176 with 17 rides + 6 tips $26 only one surge ride. You have nice steep rates there $1.85/mile vs $1.10 here and $1 in LA even PS rates dropped to $1.45 and .15/min

That's great Johnny, but what does that have to do with Las Vegas? Totally different animal than SoCal.
Most of those runs from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. were to the airport so I'm assuming that might be good for you. Worth a shot, I never figured Temecula would be busy cuz it usually sux. I think in any market those hours could be a goldmine, I usually quit at 2-3am by choice without lack of pings.

Enjoy and drive as much as you can while the rate is new and high. Not to mention.. still not overloaded with drivers.

Yeah, my last fare was a VERY short hop -- from a restaurant on that shopping center in east side of Valley View & Spring Mountain to the Rio. They took a cab there and the said the driver really went all around (probably down to Dean Martin and then around to the Rhino and back over).

It was pretty crazy today though. Someone wanted to go to Los Angeles. That's not a typo. What kind of person would want to use an Uber to go five hours through the desert?
