    Airport Rematch Issues?

    In my experience airports are actually quite slow for Uber/Lyft around Thanksgiving. Most people just have a family member drop them off or pick them up.

    Moron Select driver alert

    It happens. I had an Uber driver stupid enough to pick me up in a 2018 black Suburban a couple of months ago in the Washington DC area... on an EXPRESS POOL trip. The Suburban was spotless and had less than 10,000 miles. I asked him if he was losing money driving Pool trips, and he said he...

    Dca parking ??

    Shh, a secret: Park at the Huntington Metro station. The big garage has about 20 spaces on level 1B that allow long-term parking (up to 10 days). Then it’s an 11 minute ride on the Yellow Line to the airport. When you get back , all you pay is one day’s parking fee - $4.95 weekdays, $2.00...

    What is UZURV? My friend mentioned the App? Uzurv is legal in VA as of earlier this year.

    CT driver - drive in Washington, DC??

    You should be able to do Lyft in DC without making a change to your account. Whether it's 100% legal - probably not. I believe you need a Virginia safety inspection plus the Lyft/Uber sign in your right rear window to drive legally in DC or VA. Maryland requires a background check.

    Airport rules?

    You can walk from the south end of Crystal Dr. to the airport (up the offramp - it has a sidewalk). It's fairly well marked and takes about 15 minutes to the main terminal. I've done it to save on parking.

    Beyond frustrated with Uber customer service

    Any four door car, model year 2002 or newer, should qualify for Uber RVA.

    Retired from Uber and Wondering What to do with My TLC Car. Ideas?

    Isn't Turo still illegal in New York? I just did a search for Brooklyn and it only turned up cars in Jersey City. There was a cease and desist a few years back by the NY attorney general because of insurance issues.

    Any Chance Whatsoever Getting a 2006 Car on Uber?

    Most markets Uber now accepts 2002 or newer (15 years). That is the case in Virginia, at least.

    Que for X and XL at ewr

    Doesn't Uber give preference in sending NYC-bound X pings to TLC drivers at EWR and Jersey-bound pings to NJ drivers? I seem to remember reading that was the case not too long ago. If true, at least that will make up somewhat for the lack of destination filter when there is a queue.

    Favorite food joints

    Sonny's Bagels in South Orange is my favorite eatery in NJ. Bagels are baked fresh every morning, just the right level of chewiness on the inside and a little crisp on the outside. They'll pile on a half inch schmear of cream cheese, too. I bring back a few dozen bagels to put in my freezer...

    Richmond: Earn an extra $2 per trip

    Just noticed this new incentive when I logged into the driver app tonight. $2 extra for each completed trip, from Tuesday 3/14/17 through Sunday 3/19/17. I haven't seen any incentive here in Richmond for a long time (over a year!) This isn't bad, at least for minimum fare shorties. The ants...

    Kalanick to meet with disgruntled driver

    Probably the only time Travis has ever met with a driver.
