    Long trip dissapointment

    I should have known better and not have wasted my time on an out of state trip. Basically there is not compensation for doing this and drivers pretty much get paid less than the actual mileage of the trip. Never again! I would have scored better by just driving in the city.

    Here's another beauty!

    Lot of action in this pic. This isn't the last one to come. When turning right into the pit, there's a brief blind spot to where you can't see northbound Drivers with a Green light traveling 30+ into the pit. I think the declivity from the top of this intersection and the Rosemont exhibition...

    UP needs to separate spots fo burbs and city in Chicagoland.

    I've been doing this on and off for four years. I put in many hours trying to herd cats and organize drivers. The current Chicago ordinance would have been much worse without us. The fact remains that Chicago is two markets. There are city drivers wanting to avoid the suburbs and suburban...

    Side by Side Comparison between the ever worsening Uber and Coast so Far Clear Lyft

    First off, my system is my system. It's what works for me. For the most part, it's opposite the mainstream. I use 5 of my 6 DFs during the highly concentrated AM rush. On good days, I get multi trips per DF. Perhaps this simple analysis wouldn't match cucumber to cucumber with your...

    Sometimes I want to ask out of town passengers to come up front to see the great view of the most magnificent skyline. For me this is often coming from the north side and the Westin wall is the least interesting of the approaches. (I always watch for the ascending vapor in winter months.) I...

    Chicago brainiacs

    There is a lot of intention behind city planning. Knowing the rules and constants helps me as a driver. Here's one just out of curiosity. Why are streets on the south side generally referred to by number (72nd Street, 72nd Place), while on the north side, chiefly by name (Touhy Ave, Chase Ave)?

    LSD speeding tickets

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-biz-lake-shore-drive-speeding-20180822-story.html Looks like they are targeting only the fastest and most dangerous drivers, but still amazing how many there are.

    New Pay Period: Why?

    It appears as if Uber has shifted the pay period. The pay period now ends on Tuesday at Noon. The pay shows up in our accounts that Tuesday night -- heading into early Wednesday morning. I did get an in-app message alerting me of the switch. But, was a bit confused about how this new set-up...

    Driving in Chicago

    I live in Valparaiso, but work in Chicago. I want to drive in Chicago, but Uber tells me I can only register in one city. So if I change my city to Chicago, does that mean I can’t drive in Indiana anymore?

    Did things improve this week?

    Has anybody else noticed a significant improvement this past week? Out here in the suburbs Uber was pretty pathetic all summer but I think things are finally back to somewhat normal with kids back in school, college students back, and more business travelers on the road.
