    Uber Select Detroit Area

    I've been driving Lyft for a couple weeks and learned that if I drive a nicer vehicle I can get a rate increase. As of right now I get a bit as soon as I turn the app on but I keep getting rocked with small fare rides. Anyone using Select in metro detroit? How long in between fares? Is it...

    Surge at DTW

    Hey guys/gals, Be mindful of your fares at DTW when there is a supposed surge. Twice last night there was a 1.8-2x surge at the airport and I was one of two cars in the que. Yet, when I got the ping, there was no multiplier and thereby no surge included in my fare. I contacted Uber and they...

    If we made a way to communicate at DTC

    If we could communicate with each other. Like a long-term group chat at the airport. HOW MANY of you here would try to work together? How many of the actual drivers at Airport look at this??? If you drive there please cast a vote on the poll. If 100 people hit this poll than that means there is...

    Thank you for knocking out our competition!

    Several companies, including Yellow Cabs / SelectRide in Ann Arbor have recently went out of business. But Uber cannot wipe us all out. And now, with people getting used to riding with others, combined with the increasing problem of crappy unprofessional TNC drivers turning down or screwing up...

Then all of the police started harassing uber drivers that pick up in the baggage claim area before Christmas; ticketing, towing and arrested those...
