You won't make I unless you star like now. I've got 9 hours driving time left and need 19. I'm concerned I won't make it. Will prob be begging rohit at 4 05 am asking them to credit me the bonus because I'm a few short

No way of making that. You would have to pool like crazy and stick to Chinatown or other similar areas

Average 2 - 2.2 quests per hour(includes Pools/Express pools). 2.5 Quest per hour is impossible. You need to drive 20+- hours to complete 40 Quests. DO NOT do free Quest for UBER,

Why do you guys feel compelled to complete these quests?
It's just a way to make sure there is no surge and that all rides are taken.
You guys know this right?

You are better off picking / choosing where to be to give longer rides.

Easy way to shaft Uber out of the money rightfully owed to us from upfront pricing, if done right, you can clock some good cash with the help of the incentives.

Plus, at the end of the day, it doesn't surge like crazy. Few days of the year where it will surge all day. With so many drivers, one protest won't help.

Not a chance! Even if you got all pools. No late night matches. Did 32 today and got timed out. I have 6 for quest starting @ midnight. No guarantees late night.

Finishing up quest on sunday night is worst.
This seems to be the general consensus. It would not surprise me that you have the procrastinators, those who had their best laid plans go south and the ants all out there. This makes it difficult for all.

The thing to do is run the pools and go to the places that no one wants to work.

I have made a Quest on Sunday running as many as fifteen trips, but, I started at ten, or so, in the morning and had gone to Mass the night before, so I did not have to worry about hotfooting it to the Shrine to make the last Mass of the day at 1630. What is funny is that I have finished the fifteen trips after five to six hours WITHOUT running U-Pools. I knocked out a bunch of them at Georgia Avenue Wally World and, a few hours later, at Crystal City Harris Teeter. The short ones are Your Friend when you are trying to hit a Quest.

You can knock out the trips in DC Sunday night, can’t do it in the burbs.

I was finishing up a lyft promo last Sunday night, needed 6 more trips.

I got 1 quick trip in my area (Hyattsville) around 11:30pm and that was it. Dead silence til I moved into the city around 12:30am.

I crossed the border into NE DC and immediately got a ping by Catholic U that took me to L St NW downtown.

After that it was nonstop until 2am when I finished up back in NE DC not too far from home.
