    Gas is temporary lower than $1 per litre, expect rates to go down

    This is not a scare, but definitely a significant reason for Uber to drop fares further (meaning through the rock bottom, where they are right now). Hope this won't happen, though.

    What's up with the suddenly emerging multiple topics about alleged racism and politics?

    We are living in the most culturally diverse city on the entire planet in 2016, where "visible minorities" combined make more than half of the population, and we are discussing Uber related topics, and this suddenly happens? And now alleging ridiculousness like Uber adjusting algorithms to...

    Goodbye, Uber Eats Instant

    Farewell: It looks like finally Uber has braced that it's time to settle down and cut off services that are not popular. Hopefully, POOL will be next. Although, it's kind of already happening on its own.

    Changes to Pool from August 20.

    Opened my app yesterday and before I could go online, I was prompted to accept the new agreement. In the Service Fee Addendum the following was stated: Where, following a User request, the actual drop off point of a User utilizing UberPOOL is an additional 800 metres or more from such User’s...

    Is surge multiplier factor gone from the dashboard / app?

    I'm not able to find the multiplier factor for surge (in surge rides) anymore in either my app, or profile dashboard on desktop for the rides I've completed (previously it has been displayed in the trip details). Looks like Uber has started to do away with surge factor indication. The only...

    20/06/2016 Rogers network issues

    Is it just me, or anyone else is experiencing issues with Rogers today? Slow responce, overall slowness. I had a very few Uber pings today, will probably call it a night, dunno how many I missed because of the network issues.

    Conclusions for continuing Ubering after new regs so far

    So, I've been doing a lot of thinking about continuing with Uber after new regs (I'm sure all of you have). As many of you may know, my vehicle is 2008, meaning it is not eligible for work after July 15. With Uber currently being the only option for part time job for me (there is no other job...

    So how is everyone planning to spend this last week of Uber?

    With Uber to almost inevitably stop operations on May 3-d (that is as per Uber's own words, in case City Council votes for new regulations), what are your plans for this last week? Are you going to squeeze every last penny out of this gig while you still can or are you going to work same hours...

    Mercedes-Benz GL 350 BlueTEC

    Just saw one downtown with Uber app on the smartphone screen. This model means the vehicle is 2012 or later model year. The driver was wearing regular clothes and vehicle colour was grey metallic, so it doesn't look that it was UberBlack. So max he can do is XL and SELECT, but as we know, most...
