hello, i'm new to the forum,,, does anyone know when uber will come to iowacity?
Is there a lot of potential traffic between Iowa city and Cedar Rapids? That could be some good surge fares after games...
It stinks right now from CR to IC. Mostly pickups from the CR airport where no surge allowed and then on down to IC. Too many dead miles coming back. Other runs from CR to IC have been non surges as well. Stopped doing them after the Jan rate cuts because there is no profit going there anymore. If there isn't any decent surges in IC then going there and back will still be a money loser and I will still refuse to go there.Is there a lot of potential traffic between Iowa city and Cedar Rapids?

Any idea anyone if CR drivers can pick up riders in IC.Today is the day. UBER launches in Iowa City today at 11 am.
The current IC fare structure is there to attract both drivers and riders to Uber. When there are enough drivers on the system and new drivers are signing up at a high enough rate, Uber will reduce fares.Rate difference is crazy. For a trip from my home to specific location in Iowa City the estimated fare is $29-30. For a trip from that location back to my home the fare estimate is $40-54. The rates in CR need to be raised to match IC at least.
Golly. The cars are clustered around downtown IC like a swarm of ants on the PAX app already. With no surge I dont see it as being real profitable even at a $1 a mile.
Just did a run from the CR Airport to IC. Normally wouldn't do that run but curiosity got me.Looks like there is a shortage of drivers in CR today so far. Surge has been on a lot. I'm guessing some drivers are in IC instead. I only drive 1 or 2 nights a week and haven't in over a week. I may try it out again next week for a night or two.
