    I've been driving down here in Orlando for about two weeks, and still can't seem to shake that overwhelmed feeling! I'm sitting in the visitors parking lot at UCF, and have now been on the road for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, and have not even gotten a call, yet, from UBER or LYFT! My...

    We had a good thing going on.....

    I haven't drive for almost 4 months now and today I received the email telling me to update my Insurance that is about to expire. So I opened the app and saw for first time the new changes they have made on it and I started checking it out and when I got to the promotions I saw the $40 extra for...

    What Are The Best Little Extras

    Any suggestions for adding little extras for my passenger/customers? I have started offering bottles of water from a case I got at Costco and they seem to be doing pretty well, especially during our heat waves here in California. I have also been handing out activity books which I downloaded...

    My 3 week experience with driving for Uber in Long Island (so far)

    So, as I said in previous threads I wanted to try to do Uber on the Island and I flipping did it. Been doing it for the past 3 weeks (so far) vs me doing it previously for NYC. No I didn't illegally use my TLC plates in Long Island...mainly because I don't have any. So there are some things I do...

    Uber has MOVED the Multi-City Driving Map for Drivers of CT!

    I know I am new to this forum. I thank the creators for this opportunity to vent my frustration out and to find out HOW I can keep track when Uber makes changes to my livelihood, and my ability to make money. I am not always up on what Uber does, wants, can and cannot do. Basically, I want to...

    Ubering in a sedan vs SUV

    This also applies to Lyft, Gett, Via, etc. I'm just curious of the pros and cons between the two. And while you neysayers, believe that driving for apps suck, that's been well covered and not what this thread is about. Especially since I noticed that some of these "bonuses" sometimes excludes...

    What is your guess as to when Waymo opens to the general public?

    Self driving cars are here carrying select civilians on live roads. The next step is to remove the Waymo employee from the passenger's seat. Waymo will then go live to the general public in Pheonix AZ. When do you think this will happen?

    When folks ask how is Uber/Lyft

    I always tell folks it is like a Payday loan. You put your car out there to make minutes, but then you have to start accounting for wear and tear, insurance, new tires, car washes, mileage... Then explain that my car since December has over 40k new miles (I used to take every ride, even the...

    Legit Question...

    OK, nowadays, I'm paying more attention to PAX behavior. Out of all the things they do, this one is the dumbest. You pile 3 OF YOU in the back seat, squished, can't breathe, move and complain how you have no room the ENTIRE RIDE! Everytime that happens, I look back and squint and I KNOW they...

    Discontinue at the end of this month (8/17).

    Hello.. I've decided to discontinue driving for Uber/Lyft at the end of this month. Eventhough I get some extra pay, the risk outweigh the rewards such as insurance, low pay (especially through Uber eats), wear and tear on the car. It had its moments and decided to end it if not sooner. Good...
