Hello guys, would you like to share your experience where is best for you to work in London and during what time? For example some people will prefer to stay in City or West end when on surge, but are they any drivers that usually stay local, for example if you hang around nw9, nw10, w3, w5, n22, n2, sw17, sw19, sw20, and any post codes around North and South circular, are there any good jobs during the day or evening?
Any experience share much appreciated:)
Cheers

Every time I go Watford or around them parts I always get a job
=O, I never get one. Hardly ever. Just depends on time of day I guess.

Do you remember a few months ago Watford was on surge nearly all the time? During all times of the day, I always figured it was a glitch or something.

Well, you are absolutely right, I don't need info where to go but some experience exchange will be a good for everyone, plus my idea is : if you work on x would you survive doing local jobs mostly or heading to town is necessarily? Does uber replace local offices as I can see more and more are shutdown.
Thanks anyway

I just go wherever the jobs take me, and then try and use a bit of nous while gravitating back towards town/airport/surge areas, taking into account time-of-day, events, traffic, etc. It's not rocket science, but there is an art...

Which is great until I want food or need a slash - then it all goes to pot!

Surge doesn't necessarily mean it's busy... It's also when uber have a shortage of cars within the area they surge it to get more drivers in that direction

Uv just basically described what surge is.
Plus if it's not busy in a area and there's not many cars in that tarea surge won't come on.

Watford is the worstof all,
Listen mate as your a new starter just work your way around the city like liverpool st and etc..there u will get jobs..also if you dnt mind traffic then days are good as you wont get drunks and shit bags..also i prefer nyts as no traffic..my advise to you is just go up city and explore as there is always jobs around. Hope this helps and good luck in the future. Hope things work out for you myfriend.

As I said before, surge is just a ploy to get drivers to commit to work, when they see the surged zone they just go for it on the double, some of them even switch off their pda till they get there, but out of the hundreds or even townsends only a very few will actually get it, but because there are now a lot of cars in the zone, people respond and start booking cars, in other words, uber pulls you in for pennies, so that you can earn them pounds
