It's hard to quantify "slow". Based on expectations versus reality, Friday nights have really been terrible lately. My educated guess is that there are WAY more drivers than needed on Friday nights. I've opened the Uber rider app and you can't swing a dead cat without hitting multiple Uber cars on Friday nights.

Saturday is consistently the worst day. Actually, other than being a pessimist and saying every day, I'll say weekends when the part time heros come out is flat out terrible.

The day I stay home. Tuesday suck for me for some reason. Love Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Weekend mornings, really???? Where r people going??? And what market are u in?

I've never bothered with weekend mornings bec I'm in South Florida and, perhaps a personal bias, but I feel people here don't leave their house until after 1pm.

Some of my best rides are weekend mornings - airport, port, yoga, gym, farmers markets, community events, church, temple, salons, those who avoid the early afternoon shoppers like the plague and they tip better too! I want to declare a sundown moratorium on driving. It seems nothing good comes out of driving nights.

I live and work in ft lauderdale. I do pretty well. I think not everybody drives (drivers) that is and get people going to brunch. Locals may not go our early but tourists get oUT early.

It really doesn't matter. You can have a "very busy" Saturday night where you do 7 short trips in four hours and make $25 ... you can have a relatively slow Monday afternoon where you only do two trips over 4 hours but they're both from Delray to FLL and you make $60. I have long ago given up trying to figure out the best time to drive. It's being lucky enough to get the quality pings and there is no way to figure out how, when or where to get them.

It seems that Mondays have been the slowest days for me. Curious if others are experiencing the same.
Today,followed by yesterday,and tomorrow.

Mondays are good here.
Another cruise ship docked this morning.

Wednesday is probably slowest here.
