Still the same....I took my first Fri night off in 2 years last night due to bad weather so just couldn't be bothered going out in it.
Heaps of cars on the riders app when I checked....seems to be more and more every week although I do try to avoid looking at the riders app as it makes me just about wanna give up before I even start.

Last night was the busiest I have experienced - only been driving since Feb. No breaks between jobs from 6pm til midnight. Made $360 in 8 hrs although I have XL. Surges almost all night although I always seem to be unlucky with them!

You are the perfect candidate for sWinelyft!!!
It's nice your wife supports you to make these decisions.
Maybe when dot run some of the cowboy's outta town it might be more viable.
Otherwise hope you find something more suitable.
The unsociable hours are another consideration.

Nice you got paid well but do pity the rider... Did they realise what it was costing.... Or did you hitail outta there. If uber upped the rates and dropped the surge... Do u think that would be better... Definitely fairer IMO.

They won't ever increase the rates, so surge will be the only highlight of our otherwise miserable existence as Uber partners.
