    Stopping for coffee

    I often pick up a PAX to take him to work. Invariably, he asks me to pull into a Timmies to get himself a coffee. Is that allowed? Am I paid for the time it takes while we queue up? What about my gas while I'm sitting there. What are the rules on this?

    HST could kill Uber in Canada

    I completely agree. I used to collect and submit GST years ago as a small business. I had to do it every 3 months and it was a real nuisance. I certainly won't continue as a UBER driver once that starts, not for the paltry amount I'm getting right now. I worked 3 hours one day last week and...

I waited and sure enough he came back, so I took him home. Then I found out that I only got paid for...

    Is it worth it?

    My problem is that I accept rides too quickly without looking at the pick-up point. Then I find myself on a stupid trip. Yesterday I accepted a ride that was 15 kilometers away and it turned out to be a kid standing outside a McDonalds waiting for a ride home. I got $3.00 for a 30 kilometer...
