    Hopkins Rider App Dropoff Spot!

    WHEN am I going to have to QUIT educating Pax on where the Hopkins drop-off is, like I just took a lost sick puppy to the pound? It's getting Uber-freaking old. Hey, look, I basically ignore Hopkins. Pickups from Hopkins, quite frankly, aren't ALLOWED in my car, unless extreme surge grabs me...

    Uber's "Experiment"

    In app, few weeks ago I received a message telling me Uber was "experimenting" with showing me an estimated amount of time the trip will take before acceptance but to "keep seeing this trip time info" I have to maintain 85% acceptance rate, which I'm hoping acceptance and then cancellation of...

    2 Ideas

    I've actually been pleasantly surprised with Uber's recent attempts to "up their game." Most notably, I IMMENSELY appreciate the charge for waiting time as on Friday and Saturday I routinely get those 4 or 5 riders who mistakenly believe I have ALL NIGHT LONG to spend on them. However, I still...

    DST and Last Call/Closing Times

    Would somebody be kind enough to refresh my memory (can't believe I don't remember...) how this goes with the bars tonight when the clock skips ahead? The 3 am hour will be what the 2 am hour usually is yeah?

    Earnings Boost Suggestions

    Pretty good for minimum fares, at least, and I'm generally a fan of anything that beefs up minimum fares. For the 11:30-1:30 block it works, oddly enough. The 1:30-3:00 x1.5 is a bit more annoying because, quite frankly, in Lakewood and Downtown it's more profitable shutting your app off and...

    Interesting Offer

    ???? 1. No info on how many miles will be driven 2. Paid per hour but not saying how much I'd say if Uber wants drivers for this "On-Demand" event it needs to be a little more forthcoming on the details... Then again this is just sign-up....

    A Way to Shut Off the Ride Ahead

    Let me explain. I am not crazy of course I realize this has resulted in a boost to productivity. Nor do I want to shut off the ride-ahead feature any amount of time more than about 2% of App-On time. But there are some key times that would be uber-convenient to allow me to shut it off: 1. When...

    UHH I do this for free now?

    I don't think so. Is this what a "fare review" looks like? What are we negotiating here????

    Rite-Aid Marathon Tip for Newer Drivers

    God bless those brave souls out this morning jogging in such atrocious weather for such a great cause BUT... Your seats, their perspiration+the precipitation drenching their clothes....not a good mixture. Has happened to me twice already. (In fairness, over the summer, with humid...

    Smartphone Advice

    I have been on a Verizon share plan with another family through church for about 10 years now with a stone age fliphone. I'm not the biggest fan of change, not too "into" the smart device thing and they only charge me 25 bucks a money. WorkED for me. However, I'm not the "controlling interest"...

    NO I Did NOT Cancel Too Many Trips

    Hahahaha, that's rich, Uber. Real rich. I'm not haggling over how many I did cancel (and I did, quite a few)...but let the bare facts speak for themselves: 25 hrs 30 mins online/ 53 trips...well over a 2 trip per hour rate. No way in hell can I be accused of "canceling too many trips." Keep...

    Game of Cancellations

    Between 11:55pm-2:58am last night had a rather astounding 6 cancellations: 1 on a rider. 1 on me as it was 17 minutes away. And the other 4 $16 in Cancel fees....waiting. Waiting for the second to last one ensured I would be nowhere near the juicy Closing Time Downtime Surge in time. And the...

    Any Guarantees Beyond 3/6?

    Haven't been Ubering the past 2 weeks. Kind of a blessing, frankly. My last "guarantee" email received was labeled from the Feb. 29-March 6 period. Stops there. Haven't received anything since. Anybody received guarantees beyond March 6 or are we still in that "weekends period"???

    "51% of trips begin in Cleveland"

    It was nice to see the weekend guarantees go up a little...even nicer that it happens right when I won't be driving :mad:for the next few weeks.... But...does "51% of trips begin in Cleveland" mean what I think it means? Ex: meaning *not* Linndale, Brookly, West Park, Lakewood, Cleveland...

    X Ch-ch-changes (I would make)

    The thing is...I actually like doing Uber. 75-80% of the time, I like my riders. I like getting them where they need to go. With water. Or gum. XM or Spotify along the way. Need a charge? (sorry not iPhone5-6-capable..and btw do Apple's batteries universally SUCK or is it just me?) etc. Last...

    10 Trips (Offline @ 2:40?)

    To guarantee or not to guarantee. That's the question. An "hour" according to Uber is 50 of 60 minutes online. So in no meaningful sense can Uber count that 40 minutes against trips per hour, aye? Not by anything remotely resembling LOGIC certainly. Unless. Doublespeak. Doublespeak is...

    Watch Your Cancellation Fees

    Suspiciously, rider cancellations no longer show up on my dashboard. (EDIT: though drivers' do! o_O They are, however, stored in Trip History. Request comes in 12:07. I got a block away 12:16 a "New Destination Entered" icon flashed top of app and then Rider Canceled. No cancellation fee...
