    The pay cut made me a better driver.....

    Thanks to what Uber did to the rates I have become and exemplar driver. Today (Tuesday 12) I did not exceed the speed limits not even for 1 mile over it, actually I drove under the speed limit, I allowed every single car in front of me to change lines in front of mine when they put the...

    If you are one of those drivers that drive long hours and take some naps to rest up and continue, be careful where you park, read the signs, or you may wake up having a ticket to pay for that nap.Maybe it is old news but it is new to me so I wanted to share it, I found this one yesterday.

    Easier way to change rating base on tips!

    Unfortunately there are more the pax that don't tip that the ones that tip, so it becomes very annoying to go one by one after 24 hours and change the rates of 15 or 20 pax and even if you do have the patience Uber is telling the pax that they have 30 days to add the tip,so lets make it very...

    Hang in there!

    Uber is desperate for drivers, many of them have been dropping, returning their lease vehicles and moving on, and we can see that, a few months ago no matter if there was or not boost, surge was dead, you would not see any blood in the map, now even with boost you can find surge here and there...

    Pool and Surge

    If we all stop taking Pool, this may lead to an increase in surge due to drivers being in time out. Lets say that there is 10 cars around an area that start to get busy 7 of those drivers don't take the pool pings and get in time out for 2 minutes, that area that was getting busy even with 10...

    Dear rider....

    I totally understand that you are late or that you may miss your fly, but unfortunately Uber now is on top of me and the other drivers for the way I brake and acelarate, I am sure you understand that I can't be ruining the stats of my company with Uber trying to fix the fact that you are...
