    Climate Control

    Yesterday, here in Rochester, it was 85 degrees. I used two different Ubers as a passenger and both times the drivers did not have the air conditioning on. On the first ride, I was freshly showered and was going out to dinner with a lady friend of mine. With the windows being open her hair was...

    Percentage Tip Option

    Has anyone else noticed a reduction in tips since they took away the dollar amounts? I know when I first used the percentage tipping, it threw me off. I feel people want to know exactly how much they spending in the tip. Too much math for some people. It should be $2-$3-$5 or other option.

    Animals Part ll - The Scam

    So, to ensure a XL vehicle would be there to pick them up, they pulled a little trickery. I was sitting at a gas station somewhat nearby when I got an X ping for an address on Jefferson Rd. As soon as I started to move, they cancelled. About 45 seconds later, I received another ping for an...

    They Really Are Animals

    I have seen YouTube videos of when 5 or 6 animals pile into an X ride and argue with the driver about too many people. I don't do late nights so I don't encounter these types of things. It's 5:30 AM I got a request from "Sade" at Denny's. Accepted the request. I know, first mistake, but I...

    One Star BS

    Why is it "city" passengers one star me on Uber? Most drivers won't pick up in shady areas. I consider any pax a bag of money sitting on my seat. I have only had one real piece of trash and it was the account holders friend that acted like trash. I am polite just the same with them, yet they...

    The past few days we've had constant surge here in city of Rochester. Blanket coverage. This means more riders than drivers by the definition. Why is it when I am right in the surge or I am working around it, I never get any requests from the surge area? If pax have stopped ordering because of...
