    Uber Connect email

    Apparently my market will be a test market for Uber Connect and Uber wants me to be one of the Ginny pigs for it. I really don’t see myself participating in this. I can easily see Uber Drivers being used to transport drugs or other illegal means.

    My COVID-19 Success Story

    I typically drive on the weekends. I last drove 3-7-20. I was planning on going out of town the next weekend for my birthday so I wasn't planning on driving until the following weekend after that. Well as you know COVID-19 mania took off from there once the NBA suspended their season March 11th...

    3 times in a row might get me to change my strategy

    I take a good look at my backseat each and every time passenger(s) exits my car. It helps me catch left behind items before the passengers are gone. I picked up a guy yesterday and took him on a minimum fare trip just outside the French quarter. We had a decent conversation and then we pull up...

    Does Uber mess with the Brightness of your phone?

    I bought an iPhone 11 about 2 weeks ago. I haven't driven with the new phone yet as I finally transferred everything over to it 2 days ago. So next time I go out there it'll be with the new phone. I have gone into the APP to look at a few things. Despite not going online yet I have found that...

    San Francisco declares state of emergency over coronavirus

    The motherland is preparing for an outbreak. Will the ants continue to work under these circumstances? Will enough ants stay off the app long enough to create a constant surge for those ants who do decide to risk their life? Will Uber even offer them the surge or keep the extra earning themselves?

    Air Force Recruiter lied to me

    About 3 weeks ago I dropped off someone off at the airport. Didn't get a rematch and wasn't gonna sit in the 100+ Ant-Lot to wait 1-2 hours on a $20 ride so I head to the other side of Kenner. I get a Ping and the pick up was over at the Rental Car Area at the old airport in Kenner, La...

    Do you use the Navigation Audio Function?

    Back in 2017 after a few weeks of doing this gig I cut off the GPS audio because I hated how it interrupted my Pandora music that I play. I find it really easy to follow the directions just by reading the directions and looking at the Uber Map. My wife is the opposite she doesn’t do Rideshare...

    I drove 12PM-5PM on New Year's Eve and the trip below was my 2nd trip of the day but the 1st trip in the New Orleans area: I was parked somewhere in Uptown where I received an unusual Ping "pick up premium, 2.5 mile pickup, 12 minutes". I don't think I've ever gotten a pickup premium ride...

    Unable to login to the Desktop Uber site

    I was attempting to log in to the website to get my 2019 stats and I noticed that it simply takes me to a screen where I can only update my email address, 1st name and last name. Is anybody else having this issue?

    Nice Try Uber

    What’s wrong with giving us the standard market mile/minute rates Guaranteed to the pickup point for these kind of offers and make the Riders pay that fee? I’d be happy to pick up the guy and basically bring him back to where I am plus 5 minutes. If they really want someone to drive 15.5 miles...
