    Destination Filter and Mileage deductions

    I use the DF daily when I leave in the morning. I set Airport as DF. 4 out of 5 days, I receive a ping. When I leave airport, or last dropoff, I head to my day job. Same going home at night. Use DF as home. Most days get rides. Will IRS consider these as commutes, or legitimate attempt to gain...

    Amalie Arena dropoff

    I don't think I got the memo. Last night, dropped pax at Amalie for the hockey game at the front of the arena, at what used to be the Uber/Lyft drop spot- at the pull in near Channel side and Morgan. The cop flags me down, and he was cool about it, but tells me this is no longer dropoff for...

    Dash camera, 2 way recorder

    With all the shenagins going on with sexual harrasment, and driver abuse of pax, or even pax abuse of drivers, I'm really getting concerned. What type of recording device do you use? Two way video seems to me the best protection, but I'm curious as to what other drivers use or think about this...

    A First!

    A double tip! Picked up an older couple at a bar in Brandon, drove them home on what I thought would be a typical $3.19 er. Just chit chatting about the usual, and as they leave, pax hands me a couple of bucks. "Thank You sir, and good night!" When I get home, I see another $3.00 tip through...

    Thank You Tampa Bay area!

    I hit my goal, and am going to fly to Vietianne Laos on Saturday morning! I started driving in January, and banged around the entire Bay area about 4 to 5 days a week. I really enjoyed meeting some great people, and I guess I was fortunate because really only had 1 bad pax. She was just an...

    Did I miss the memo..

    Or has surge all but disappeared? No longer any red-ever, in any shade. Or there so many ants pecking away at rides, that there is no surge in Tampa any more.

    Long Distance "Trip Ended" notification

    I accepted a trip on Friday night that would have taken pax to Naples Fl. A little past halfway there, I get a notification on my phone that the "Trip Ended"! What! In the middle of nowhere on I-75, Uber expects me to drop pax off at a "safe location." So in your opinion, what should I have done?

    In the eyes of a passenger...

    Passenger tells me that last several Uber cars he got in were disgusting, trashy, smelly and driver played loud music. My advice to to them is as soon as car pulls up and it is a POS, cancel the ride and then request a new car. As quick as we are to cancel on them, they should cancel on us if...
