    Anyone looking into Carfie?

    I have seen posts on social media lately about this new rideshare company coming into the DFW area. They are supposed to start today? To me it appears flaky, but would appreciate feedback.

    Has anyone ventured over there yet? Is there a strategy in place for rideshare? George Strait scheduled there in a couple of weeks.

    Wingz coming to Dallas

    Any thoughts? I know the car requirements are nothing over 5 years old. Supposedly they give you 85 percent (minus some fees). Pricing seems to be between comfort and select. It is only pre-arranged rides. Anyone on board with them yet?

    I had heard that this was an issue over a week ago for several drivers. While I normally do not have that option selected, there are times at events where XL will be higher priced than black SUV. The option no longer shows up so I called the support number Sunday afternoon. This was an...

    Maria - UberEats skuzzbucket

    I really hope Maria watches these forums. She marked the delivery as completed as soon as she picked it up and then failed to deliver. I hope you choke on that $75 worth of food. We called the reateraunt and they said the food was still there an hour after the driver marked it as delivered...

    Low gas price in Denton

    Was driving back from Winstar tonight when I noticed that unleaded gas was $1.18 at Buckees. I don’t know if this was for a promotion or not, but there was a lot of business there. If you happen to be in the Denton area, it’s probably worth it to fill up. This is the new buckees in denton

    I heard from a friend today about this subject. She received a request to pick up in the university park area and proceeded to the house. The woman came out and said that she needed the driver to deliver a suit coat to her husband at the Arboretum as he was speaking and had forgot his suit...

    Vehicle stickers for black/SUV

    i made a bad assumption about not needing vehicle sticker while driving Uber black/SUV and thought the state law was for all rideshare vehicles. Not a problem....I went and paid for the city inspection and now enroute to pick up the sticker before Uber deactivates me ( yes, I have already got a...

    Monthly Pass for riders

    Anyone figure this out yet? From the limited information that we received, the rider gets a discount and unlimited rides for 28 days. The drivers get the pick-up at flat rates. Does this mean that they get around surge pricing?
