    Screwed on a surge - Buffalo Airport

    So last night at roughly 12:15 AM, I started getting pings from the Buffalo Airport which was 15 minutes away. Decline. Decline. Decline. Then the map turned orange, including the little part that is the airport and I get a ping from the airport as I was zooming in to see how much the surge...

    Brutal Out There

    Is it just me or has this week been BRUTAL? It's crawling with ants! On a bright side, I reached a milestone, 1000 5 stars on Uber. I am sure my bonus/appreciation check is in the mail.

    Buffalo Bills Players

    I only did one ride tonight, then got a text from a buddy and met him out for a few beers. My one ride was a Buffalo BIlls Rookie, took him from his hotel to Chipotle and back. After I got home I open up my app and realize not only didn't he leave a tip but my rating had gone from a 4.92 to a...

    How do I delete this thread?

    I’ll stikl never sit in that bs queue. Hopefully it will encourage others to stay at the airport so I can make real money. To be eligible for short trip protection, you must be waiting in an airport queue for at least 15 minutes. Short trip protection is valid for 6 hours at the same...

    PAX Broke my Door and Still Didn't Tip

    Dropped a PAX of at the Eastern Hills Mall this afternoon, she throws open the door in the wind storm and breaks the hinge, I had to get out and shut the door. I look at her and say, the door is broken. No Tip!

    Uber's new Scheduled Rides

    Uber is sending pings for these pick ups way before the PAX actually really wants to get picked up. I've had to cancel twice now because the PAX weren't even close to being ready. The one woman was expecting Uber 30 minutes later. I won't be accepting any of these rides going forward.

    Premium Pricing

    I had two requests last night that said, something like, this ride may have premium pricing. I accepted one of them and when I dropped the PAX off didn't notice anything different in my pay. Anyone know what this is?

    How do I get out of the airport queue?

    I refuse to work the airport however I have no problem dropping people off there. My problem is once the PAX is dropped off it puts me in the damn queue. I drive away from the airport, still in the queue, I turn of the app while still driving away, still in the queue, I reboot the app, still...

    Just logged onto the app and noticed there are no longer any promotions available. If this is the case, that is $180 in potential earnings down the toilet.
