Not even going to try. Last weekend I wasn't going to bother but saw continual surging in the Heights and went out. Made more than I would have with guarantees by only accepting 2.4 or above surge and worked 8pm to 1:15am.You'll never make the minimum required trips. Uber will make sure of it.
No each period is its own entity IN HOUSTON. Every market has different rules. But you have to have overall enough hours. So if you worked say 6pm- 9 pm and got the guarantee as far as trips, acceptance rate etc. you could work 30 mins in the next hour and tske a 2 hour break and that 30 mins would simply not matter for guarantees except as overall hours worked. You could then do the 12AM to 3am guarantee again separately. Let's say you didn't get 8 trips during that time. You wouldn't get that guarantee but it wouldn't affect the earlier one.Wait. New guy here so forgive the ignorance.
But you have to be online for all of those hours, and all of those days, and make all of those trips with an 80% acceptance rate to get those guarantees?
First time ai read it ai thought you could just choose the one you wanted to go for and get that specific guarantee and ignore the others if that's what you chose to do.
Still new but let's say I am in the Heights and I see a surge pop and leave pop and leave like near NRG is the consensus to go chase it? I keep hearing mixed, some say you are better off staying where you are and not risking the gas plus once you get there it is gone, some say to be where the surge is. I still get very confused about that. And yesterday I was in Montrose sitting during a "consistently high demand" for 30 minutes no pings, I decide to go offline and move and it says "are you sure? High demand in your area" so I stay on...15 minutes and nothing.Not even going to try. Last weekend I wasn't going to bother but saw continual surging in the Heights and went out.

When the guarantees were $40 and above it was worth taking a chance on missing one because the risk benefit ratio was better. Now you're better off ignoring them. However unless you have surging going on its not even worth driving.
They are pushing the drivers who can make money part time to work more and many simply won't/can't drive more hours.
They have a system where working part time is the only thing worth doing and then pushing those drivers away. It makes no sense.
