    Airport Surges for Airport Only

    Saw this surge message last night at LUV. Not sure if it applies to DFW but I have read about it being applied to other cities. Called priority support (b/c I'm so special, NOT). They referred to this situation is a boost surge. I guess that gives them cover to claim the boost program is...

    Destinations Turned Back On ... Kinda

    I seldom use the destination feature so I may be the last driver in Dallas to know this. I had set the feature this afternoon, was about 1/2 way home, dropped off a PAX, and then Uber tells me the feature was turned off as I had entered a busy area or pick-ups were taking longer than usual or...

    I Used To Hate $1.25 Surges

    That was until I started to see $1.00 surges. Has anyone read about the lowest "surge" offered by Uber?

    Dude, Where Is My Surge?

    Other than curiosity, taking these screen shots was good for nothing. Too many times I've taken similar screenshots AND accepted the ride only only to get face punched by Uber that the surge must have ended and that's why no surge was offered. So this time I decided to decline and see the...

    Did Series Promos Kill Quests ?

    Assuming Uber shares the same promotions to the same drivers in the same area ... big assumption I know. Uber sometimes gives unexpected quests. When I check the app all I see are the el cheapo Make $X for completing 3 trips, etc etc. Did continuous trips fully replace Quests or do you think...

    Lower Level Pick-Ups @ DFW ?

    These signs may have been around for awhile, but today was the first day I noticed them. With a pick-up at Term C this morning, a passenger calls and asks if I'm on the upper level? I roll my eyes thinking this guy doesn't travel much until I saw this sign. DFW has either done a poor job at...

    To Surge or Not To Surge ...

    I start on my merry little way through Frisco late Saturday evening and its plum red but doesn't have any flat rate surge indicated in the Surge graphic. The "finding trips" notification is on but nothing indicates I'm in a surge area other than the blue tracking arrow showing me in the middle...

    Long Trips from Surge Areas

    Had this situation today. Wondered if its by design or just one of those "odd coincidences" with the app that happens to work in Uber's favor. Had a pick-up from downtown at $1.25 surge. Customer was going to Fort Worth, sighhhhhh. My question is ... has anyone had a long trip ping from a...

    Adding A New Vehicle

    I got a new (additional) vehicle today. I want to add it to the Uber app. Uploading the new insurance card was easy, thanks USAA. Now the app, and Uber phone CS, say I need to add the registration or blue sticker, which I will not have for 2 weeks or so. Anyone know of a faster way? Will...

    Driver App Experience: Restarting Device vs Android Force Stop

    I had this scenario three times in December. All were "busy" weekend nights ... not like the old busy weekend nights but you know what I mean. Sign onto the app, do maybe 10 rides over a couple of hours and then hit some dead time. Both cases it was ~ 30 minutes with no rides. Tried to...

    Returned Phone, Reported to Uber, No Fee From Uber

    This may just be a timing thing, but then again it may just be an screw-ber thing too. I've found a few lost phones in my day and enjoy the $15 reward for returning them. Not that it makes up for the lost fares while I'm off-line and returning the phone, but its better than getting a new badge...

    Veteran's Badge in the New App ?

    I was too lazy to get the military veteran's designation in the old app. Now that I have the new app I figured I should update veteran's status. Can't find how to do it with new app. Called driver CS and they say its a feature which they are working on to get into the new app (blah, blah...

    A Rider Puked on Me, Now What?

    I haven't had that many vomit rides, I think 9 or 10 over 4,500 plus trips. And I'll admit, it doesn't bother me to get 70 bucks from Uber after someone pukes outside my car b/c I know it will just be a $10.00 car wash and less than an hour of window washing time to be sure its all gone. Then...

    Is Uber Skipping Direct Deposits This Week ?

    I'm not the brightest guy driving for Uber. The fact that I drive for Uber kinda proves that. Anyway I read Uber's note about the weekly earnings period changing. I thought it ment my pay for any given week would go from showing up in my bank account on Thursday mornings to showing up on...

    Surge Policy Change with App Change ?

    Did Uber change their surge policy with their APP change? I drive in with the new "improved" drive app I can see the surge area but the old hexes with the additional surge pricing detail are gone. Not that I trusted Uber when they did provide additional data, but now that the data is gone I...

    "New" Surge Policy ?

    I have the new app and only some surge areas had flags. This graphic is an example w/o a flag to indicate the surge. I also noticed no matter mow much you expand/pinch the surge area no additional details are provided. Those hex's in the old app which indicated different surge details are...

    DFW Shuffle

    I was at DFW for a pick-up on Monday and it looked like the graphic. Surge pricing great I'm on my way. But was not paid surge pricing. I went to greenlight and asked "Hey, were's my surge on this ride." Green Light said, the surge was actually the coloured area. Lots of people on the plane...

    Posting Uber Rates

    Here in Dallas I know cabbies have to post their rates on their vehicles ... you know the fees that Uber doesn't allow its drivers to collect for things like 2nd passenger, airport fee, additional stops, etc. So I was thinking of posting this sign. If nothing else maybe it will cut down on...

    Wait Time Clock & Payments

    A couple weeks ago I thought I noticed my wait time clock "reset" from 2:59 backwards about 30 seconds to 2:30 or so. The worse I've seen in a backwards "reset" is from 2:59 to 2:17. So I started to video the driver app experience. I've watched this very closely and this IS NOT the type of...
