    Becareful with fraudulent rider

    Maybe you were speeding or talking on the phone. I had drivers do that and did exactly what your passanger did.

    How to get 5 stars and badges every single time.

    Hello Ubers. I am a VIP passenger from NYC and take Uber everywhere I go. Lately I've noticed an influx of below average - poor Ubers. Honestly, the last time I had an Uber who warranted 5 stars was a week ago. Below are some suggestions on how to improve your ratings to get matched with more...

    My driver made me late to my appointment!

    Drivers with high stars get paired with high rating VIP passengers so they make more money. More stars and badges = more matches = more rent money. CASE CLOSED.

    My driver made me late to my appointment!

    All passengers should be treated equal and I expect same service from pool and x. I tried to explain to the driver that I'll 5 star him if he cancels other passengers but he barely spoke English. Had he gotten me on my destination on time (and spoke English!) I would have 5 stared him and he...

    My driver made me late to my appointment!

    This happened on Friday. I had a doctor's appointment after work and took Uber service from Downtown Brooklyn to Mill Basin. The estimated arrival time was half hour and this is how the story unfolds: The Uber (Toyota Camry) arrives promptly and I get in the front. I tell the driver that I'm...

    How to be a Good Uber in NYC

    Where does it say that I can't give directions to my driver? Most of the drivers I have have their eyes glued to their GPS. The most annoying thing is when they have the GPS audio over what I'm playing with the aux or bluetooth. If you have lived in Brooklyn for over 40 years and still need GPS...

    How to be a Good Uber in NYC

    Badges are signs of good drivers. I'm less likely to cancel on driver with "cool amenities" or"cool car" badges. Thank you for bringing up another point .A lot of drivers can increase their ratings by improving their English . Lack of fluency is why some of my drivers mess up my coffee orders .

    How to be a Good Uber in NYC

    Hello, dear Ubers. I am a VIP passenger who takes Uber everywhere I go. I work 60 hours per week and tend to go out, so the Uber app is my most used app. In the last month I've taken over 100 rides and I have some suggestions for the drivers to maximize their ratings. 1. Do NOT milk rides...

    Tips on Getting Tips

    Wow, you have to be a real genius to NOT mess up a route...all you have to do it just listen to where the passenger tells you to go. If you think that you deserve a tip for going from point A to point B I highly suggest you reread my rules to make real tips from professional passengers.

    Tips on Getting Tips

    Well its seems like Uber has really become Ughber. Ten of my last rides have been either Toyota Camries or Hyundai Accords and none of the drivers had water or snacks. That's a recipe for 1 star and a report. On the bright side, Uber refunded me 4 of the rides, but it seems that the quality is...

    Tips on Getting Tips

    False. Ubers have the option to turn off "look for other riders" option in the app, so they do have control over accepting the next pool rider. When I order pool, I typically cancel unless I get a nice big car with no other riders in it. If I get a Camry or Accord and need to head out, I tell...

    Tips on Getting Tips

    I'm talking about the NY market, because I use it. As I stated, here our drivers must be professionals by law. However, my tips should be good for the rest of the world too. Well, I don't know if pool exists in rural areas with like 20 people towns, but then again majority of the cars there...

    Tips on Getting Tips

    An Uber in NY has a TLC license, and many have CDL, which makes him a professional. Ubers here must be professionals. I don't know how its like in places like Texas, but here we don't call Bob to ask him if we can hop in his Camry and go 10 miles North. We pay uber for certified professional...

    Tips on Getting Tips

    You will get more tips from a nicer car in pool. More pax + nicer car = more tips. You're welcome. I'm glad that there are some good Ubers out there. I use pool when I'm not in a rush. Unless the car is empty, and it's a good car, I cancel. This way, I get a nice car and get the front all to...

    Tips on Getting Tips

    I’m not expecting anything as a rule. I’m just stating that it makes sense for Ubers to pool in nice cars, because they pick up many pax and it leads to more tips.

    I meant qx60, sorry. Proof attached. And Uber is cheaper than mass transit for me so I just tip good drivers with cash. When they follow the tip guidelines.
