    $4 rides!

    Went out last night (Friday) and I had 5 straight $4-4.79 type rides. Some of these rides were 3+ miles during bar time with 25% plus prime time. Lyft is an absolute joke. Literally working for peanuts on top of I just got laid off from my job. Ughhhh I need a miracle. Rant over. Edit: looked...

    Tip! Wait 3 minutes in the same place then cancel

    I had the pleasure of missing out on a cancellation fee because I moved one block. Short story: I arrived at the location of the passenger, waited about 2 minutes then called. He was drunk, not at the location (he was across town) and I was not in the mood for that. We both hung up. My phone had...

    Passenger who repeatedly cancels?

    Ok guys, I have to ask if anyone else who is a denver uber driver gets pinged by the same customer (Loui D.) from a motel 6 right off of I25 and Arapahoe? I have gotten this guy Loui D. from this same location ping me 3 different times now over the last month. I accept. I drive to the location...

    More than $3K net per month in Denver?

    Hello everyone, I've read a lot of the threads here and I'm curious to hear from some of the more successful UberX drivers who have maximized their earnings in Denver. It sounds like one strategy is to work during the day and prioritize DIA and some hotels, while another strategy is to work...

    Price Cut...new low

    Congratulations...! Uber has now cut the price to a new low $1 per mile and base fare $0.75 and 0.13 per min. For those who argue that Union is not a solution here is your answer. I think uber is trying to kill Lyft since there was a huge investment for lyft this week (ie GM...). Regardless...

    NYE was a bust for me...

    So all I heard from drivers were "you can make $600 or more easy on NYE!" It was a total bust. Yeah I got requests, but most were 20 min away or just short rides. My last ride on a regular night would have been $20+ for 3 miles at 330 AM, instead under $10 on NYE. Just doesn't make sense. I...

    UBERing in Different Cities...
