    Don't miss LAX trips this morning! Start early!

    1 question , why cancel 2nd pool ride? 1 comment I believe cancelling more than 5 minutes away is too restrictive . I have received significant income from taking trips that are even 15 minutes away . I think you do have a good arguement about cancelling trips over 5 minutes, when it is very...

    Don't miss LAX trips this morning! Start early!

    I defer to your experience Bacchus , for I am a relative Newbie . Please tell me , if my strategy needs revision . I set a certain money goal I need to reach every week.

    I find the " Ride Sharing Experience" very positive. Ride Sharing is not about the money , but for the networking opportunities it presents . I'm convinced that if one is enthusiastic and personable , dresses reasonably well, shirts , not tees , provides amenities like chilled bottled water ...

    This was posted for last weekend. Were you talking about this Labor Day weekend ? I think it may be busy on Sunday and Monday. Sunday's in LA are always the busiest and most profitable for me. Last weekend in LA / Orange was a little weird , the traffic was relatively light all over. However ...

    Uber crack

    I have to mostly agree with Mr. Desert Driver. But $ 7 to $ 9 is a little low . I have kept a close eye on my expenses. At 26 mpg average , the net net is around $9 to $ 11. Maybe a dollar more , with gas prices falling.
