    Car Inspection Sticker Renewal with Uber

    After several attempts - and getting them to realize we do not have a green light hub, they said in Vermont it is not necessary. I do not trust them for next year though - as when you talk to different people there, they all say different things. I had to find one that would eliminate it and...

    nearly all riders make you wait now

    I now wait for the 5 min, then cancel and put in a no show. I collect my $5 and move on. Pax gets charged. If all rivers did this, people would start to get it!!

    Surcharges, Airport & Tidbits

    I have never seen a surcharge on airport runs OR a $.25 fee on city rides! When I go to request a quote on the links you provided I do not see these charges either??

    I use Stride Drive app to keep track of expenses. I turn it on when I leave the house and off when I pull in at the end. Do not chase surges!! If you are in one great - but when you chase them it will go away. Keep up that star and acceptance rating Uber will tell you the acceptance ratting...

    Master manipulation

    That is called "surge manipulation" and will get you deactivated immediately. Uber has seen this and knows how it works. I do not think it is worth loosing a good thing for a one time high fare, but that is just my thought.

    Master manipulation

    Forget the surges!! If you happen to be in the middle of one, sit tight. If not - dont chase it.

    Mystro Question

    For those that use the Mystro app for Lyft and Uber: Mystro automatically accepts a ride coming in while I am currently on a ride. Normally this is fine. But at the end of my day (5 - 7:00) i can never just stop and go home as they are continually happening. I would cancel the second ride after...

    So many Lyft cancellations

    why do I get so many Lyft cancellations within a minute or two after getting the ping? I just get turned around or started towards it and I get a cancellation. This happens alot and is very frustrating! It dosentt happen so much with Uber - but constantly with Lyft
