    Grubhub regions on Long Island

    I’m hoping someone here has info as it seems impossible to get a response from Grubhub. When I signed up, you had to pick a “city” and the choices were, among others further away, Southern Nassau, Northern Nassau, Southampton, Commack, and Deer Park. Interesting how Nassau was North and South...

    Long island weeding out rif-raf pax.

    I've been driving now a couple months, and heres my observations on the ratings system. While I thought it was humourous at first, the car loads of drunk teenage (18, 19, 20), kids, the humour lasted about 5 mins. In order to avoid it, I'm avoiding picking up pax with a rating lower than around...

    Anyone here have a nyc suburbs account?

    It's far from being finalized, but there's a good chance I'll be leaving the city in a month or two, and in preparation I'd like to set up an nyc suburbs account, what I'd like to know, if any of you have done it, is whether they deactivate your city account when you apply. I've heard that's how...

    TLC GET all requests in LI?

    I know it's illegal for nyc TLC to pickup from LI, but do they actually get requests in the app? If so, do they get premium pings as well as regular. If you are a TLC driver, can you answer this from your own experiences? Just curious.

    Your LI experiences after June 29th???

    So I signed up when Uber became legal for non tlc cars in Long Island. That July 4th weekend was pretty damn good. 300 bonus for 45 trips, surges left and right..... After? Not so much. Requests are coming at a painfully slow rate due to driver increase, min fares of 3.66 for a trip you spend...

    Suburb or Upstate?

    Uber and Lyft both consider Westchester County and Long Island to be NYC Suburbs, not Upstate NY. Rockland County is considered Upstate NY, not NYC Suburbs. Here's Uber's map of "Upstate". Rockland is clearly part of Upstate. Expect different a different (lower) rate structure in Upstate-NY...
