    Impending traffic nightmare as Light Rail construction ramps up..

    It shouldn't be a surprise to anybody driving around town that the now guaranteed light rail project is going to be a major headache for those travelling along Flemington Road and Northbourne Ave for the foreseeable future. As someone who lives near the light rail corridor, I detest having to...

    Queen's birthday long weekend

    Knowing that many people leave Canberra for the long weekend, my prediction is that Thursday might be huge as people take Friday off to leave town or have a 4 day weekend. Sat/Sun might be more quiet than normal seeing as it's an off pay week for public servants and Monday might be dead as...

    My first big screw up...

    I don't claim to be the perfect driver and never make mistakes, so I thought I'd share what happened the other day and the end result as well for your amusement/information. In case you ever do something like this, rest assured it worked out fine. Anyway, I picked up a pax at the airport, -...

    To ride or not to ride: #cbr airport

    Melbourne 20:10 landed, UBER driver stranded. What will the 20:45 from Brisbane hold. Will this express-parked driver get rolled? ✈️

    Minimum ride fare too low?

    OK, time to get controversial here, who thinks the minimum ride fare should increase to $10 the same as the cancellation fee? I do. It's no secret Uber makes most of their commission off rides of $15 or less, and they think starting your car, driving 2 blocks to pick someone up only to drop...

    Summernats - who's in?

    I've got my doubts about this being a good opportunity for drivers for a number of reasons. The inevitable traffic changes, parking nightmare and a host of intangibles make me think it could be more trouble than it's worth trying to pick up pax from around EPIC...

    Queanbeyan a short term goldmine for CBR drivers?

    With NSW Govt giving Uber X approval, I noticed on Friday and last night the area was red ALOT and surge was in force. With potentially NO Uber drivers operating from Queanbeyan just yet, this could be a hotspot for weeks to come. Who thinks it's worth basing themselves in Fyshwick or actually...
