    Staying home on Halloween

    I was driving last year and fell for the whole: it’s a high earning night bull. I got stuck in WeHo and made a whopping 15 bucks. Uber didn’t update their mapping with street closures and that got me in trouble. I’m staying home and good luck to the greedy.

    Mr. Police Does Not Like Purple.

    Around 2am last night, I get a PAX going from Mississauga to Hamilton. That is a $50+ ride, no problem, I will take that 30 min ride. Before heading back to the GTA, I figured, I'm at bar-close hours in the Hammer, might as well see if there are any pings on LYFT. It was wall-to-wall...

    Halloween

    I wonder how many people are licking their chops for the upcoming weekend... Historically, Halloween weekend has been the second busiest period for rideshare. Right behind NYE. Case in point: Halloween fell on a Friday in 2014. Weather that day was some of the worst conditions to be out. Rain...

    Who is wearing a costume for Halloween driving, and what is it going to be? Are you going cheap, or all out?

    Halloween Ants

    Who's driving? Who's not? Its midweek so what are the expectations? What if it rains? Will that also put a damper on the pax festivities? Also, who's dressing up? Hint, I'm driving and I'll probably be dressed as Letty.

    Why No Big Boost Zones or Lyft Incentives for Halloween Night?

    I realize that this past weekend was the “Main Event”, but I thought there would still be decent incentives for Halloween night? I think college kids will still go out and some of DC Millenials.. maybe just not out as late as Saturday night. - Any Ideas or Incentives ( Lyft doesn’t seem to give...

    Anyone driving RI/Providence for Halloween

    I'm plotting the shifts I'll work for Halloween and planning the locations I'll hit. Obviously there will be some party goers in Providence tonight. Wondering if there will be any surge? Anyone have the latest on weather tomorrow and thoughts on how it might impact demand/drivers on the road...

    Halloween weekend saga

    Day one, Friday. Began early afternoon, Went until about 330am. Nothing too crazy. Only 3 or 4 real costumes in my vehicle. Catwoman was the best. There was a jail guard and his female inmate, they smelled like an ashtray, but still good costumes. There were two seriously overweight gentlemen...

    Your wallet wins this Halloween

    Really? My wallet has not won betting on Uber for the last two years. It's one of the biggest weekends of the year. (That is why we have found a way to supress the serge) We expect to see increased ride requests on the evenings between Friday (10/27) and Tuesday (10/31). (But don't expect...

    Uber driver pulls gun on Halloween Party goers

    I guess that's one way of showing them Enhanced video: Pops out of moonroof and points pistol around. Happened in front of Dat Dog on the corner of Frenchmen and Chartres in New Orleans.

    The scariest thing about Halloween

    The is no surge. Last year it was beet red. BEET RED. I made big bucks. This year I am home watching Dexter with my lactose intolerance cat.

    Gun pressed against my face while I was driving last night... happy Halloween!

    To be clear, let's assume that this was a plastic gun, because when your eyes are on the road, how can you tell if that drunk idiot in the back seat is pressing a fake gun or a real gun against your face? So last night, after waiting 5-6 minutes for pax to show up, one sits in the front and two...

    Halloween....how was it?

    I really wanted to drive last night but honestly did to want to drive all the way over there to not make any money. Last year was amazing but I looked at the rider app and saw there were drivers literally everywhere. So I stayed home. Mind you I live an hour away from downtown so hopefully I was...

    Stop Complaining and do something

    I have been reading all these threads from drivers complaining about no surges and low boosts. Do something about it. Don't drive on Halloween. Remember, there is no Uber without U. Stay home. Play with your kids.
