    It's really sad....

    Don't get me wrong most times I did work I made decent money because I got lucky or drove at the best possible times, with that one surge trip that makes or breaks your night. It's the lack of empathy for any of their drivers. Everything they do is to manipulate people. They are even taking...

    I don't do them ever. This may be the reason I get them all the time.

    It's really sad....

    I've been unemployed for almost 2 months. I have not received any financial assistance, yet each passing week I have driven for Uber less and less. It's sad.... that I'd rather preserve my car(2013 model), and not deal with some of the cheapest/most entitled pax, than to make money. Even if the...

    31 minutes for $11

    Derrr. It's because you drove 6 miles but, you sat in traffic doing it. Surge of $.50 - the irony. #stopdriving I've been unemployed for almost 2 months now. I work less each week. Ironic? I think not.

    is commerical registration/insurance required?

    It all depends on the cop and/or time. I turned right in front of a Phila. Cop recently. He pulled me over and the formalities began. Told him I was an "Uber Driver and just dropped someone off". He said; "you uber drivers(pause - 5 seconds later), try and make some money tonight - Be Safe"...

    Yea, that's what I use to do but, sometimes it's hard to maintain just the 1/TPH. During incentives I always get a long trip right away. Always my luck. Either way it's not worth it to drive cheap and entitled pax for less than $10/hr which it definitely is.

    It's hard to get paid even if you qualify. There's always a reason you didn't meet the "criteria". Anyway, it's from 5-9am m-f.

    Read the email carefully. $20/hr minus their cut(probably 25%) = $15/hr then you add gas, depreciation, etc it's about $10-12/hr. Which is below average but, you have to factor in your tax that 10-12/hr at your "IC" status. Your looking at roughly $7-8/hr to destroy your car. Wasn't trying to...

    My first huge bill

    Guess you really don't see that much...jk. I got a 20$ tip today and they didn't even tell me. She just said "yea, I tipped him good!" $6 trip and they leave $20. It's crazy sometimes.

    about sign up bonus

    They told me currently the bonus is $0. I thought he was kidding. When I signed up it was $500 now they tell me it's $0 and that's all the base it on. LYFT is more forethcoming. They actually show 0/50 rides until the $500.

    about sign up bonus

    I got screwed out of the bonus. You won't receive it once you complete everything. I've argued for days bc I never got mine after I did everything. Chalk it up to a loss - you will NEVER see that money. Sorry, just stating the truth.

    New in the Philly Area

    In philly it's basically all minimum fares going 2-3 miles. Then you deal with traffic and one way streets. It can be a nightmare. If bensalem/Philadelphia weren't flooded with drivers it would be different. Frankly, it's not worth it to me.

    New in the Philly Area

    Don't do it! I live in Bensalem and it's horrible since the start of the summer. I quit my FT job 2 weeks ago bc of a family emergency and I still don't drive. I'm broke and need the cash but, it's still not worth it nowadays. It was maybe 4-5 months ago(before summer).
