    Turning off location now stops Uber requests

    Well, the airport wait was a lot easier when I could just turn off my location on my Android phone and run errands while waiting for a ride. That's all over. I drove by the new lot at IAH to see just how bad it really is yesterday. There were 270 in the queue (holy crap!) and while in the...

    What the hell's up with surge?

    I haven't opened this new app when there was a surge. Now all I see is $1.25 or $4.25 or some other random number. Additionally, only a few of these show the lightening bolt surge symbol. What does this all mean and how do I know what I am going to get paid? Do I only get an extra $1.25 if I...

    Survey from Uber asking if I wanted to charge scooters!

    So have have gotten 2 surveys from Uber asking if I was aware of the scooter charging program and would I be interested in charging their electric scooter. I cannot repeat my responses but let's just say they were slightly weighted to the negative side. Has anyone else gotten this survey and...

    $600 for 50 ride guarantee

    I just got a notice that I would be guaranteed a $600 payout for 50 rides done in the next 30 days. That's a $12/ride guarantee. Anyone seeing this offer or are they targeting drivers who have not driven in a while? I could hang out downtown and take a bunch of 1-5 mile rides and still make...

    California lowers drivers legal limit

    CA is/has/will pass a law that makes the legal alcohol limit for ride sharing drivers to .04 or about 1/2 the legal limit for non-professional drivers (we are all professionals, right?). Apparently Uber's strict zero tolerance policy is not enough to keep the drivers from drinking and driving so...

    Whew, that was close!

    I have been working full time since last May out of town. The job ended so I took some time off for myself and the little woman but we ended up back in Houston a couple of weeks ago. We had a couple of things we needed to do (like get the car inspected since we were out-of-town during the...

    I HATE Unions......anyone else ready to join?

    I have always considered Unions to be the scourge of the enterprising businessman/woman. However, Uber has somehow managed to skirt every regulation that would require a business person to pay a living wage. No one in any position of power seems willing to step up and force them to do the...

    Drivers to be paid $15 to return items

    A news report here in FL is saying that Uber will now charge the rider $15 to have stuff returned to them by the driver and that this will be rolling out Nationwide. Has this happened in Houston and how is it supposed to work? Is there a mileage or time limit or does it still make sense to...

    Travis has officially resigned from Uber

    Yes, the wicked witch is officially dead. That's likely the reason in-app tipping was activated and why Uber is promising at least 1 major upgrade per month for the next 6 months. While they are a long way from anywhere, this might be the first glimmer of hope that someone with a little...

    Destination Filter no longer works.---Appears to be fixed!

    I have been having issues with the filter since last Thursday. Just can't get a ride (any ride) while the filter is set. As a long time driver I know where to find a ride and I have been using the filter successfully since it was released. Today I did a test. I sat at 4105 McKinney and...

    I was harassed by a female ARA at Terminal A today while waiting to pick up a pax. See was running off drivers who did not have a rider in sight and when I found mine (by phone call) she turned to me and said I could not wear shorts if I wanted to pick up at the airport. Of course, I said Yes...

    IAH TNC grace period

    New software feature now allows you to leave the IAH and Hobby TNC lot area and return withon 20 minutes without losing your place in the queue. Gives you a chance to get fuel or lunch without penalty. Sounds like a pretty good idea. They tired the pre-match thing before with mixed results.

    New Android software....Blech!

    I had issues with the Uber software all day today. The first trip would not process the payment and I could not get any rides with a destination set. If I set it for any ride anywhere I would get a ride but the payments still would not process. I tried everything including uninstall clear...

    The news needs more duck stories!

    Sorry, while this has nothing at all to do with Uber, I was watching NBC Nightly News tonight and there were stories about death and destruction and other stories along those lines. However, they ended the nightly news with a story about a school taking care of the ducks being hatched and led...
