    Any other Minneapolis UE drivers?

    Anyone know why we no longer get boosts aside from the measley 1.1x for the 5-9 rush. Every once in a while I’ll get a $3 per order quest otherwise nada. This used to be a great supplemental income and now I’m pretty sure it costs me more to drive than I make. Also, thehigh on Wednesday is -13...

    Nobody should be taking passengers via Hiawatha

    With Uber’s new “pay rates” they’ll be taking a heck of a lot more when you take Hiawatha. Anywhere from 5-20% and over the long run this will cost you dearly. So maximize you pay and take 35w EVERY TIME! When you’re solo of course take the less traffic way but even with traffic take passengers...

    Those kids serving up your lunch are making more than you!

    There’s a major labor shortage in Minnesota http://m.startribune.com/state-manufacturers-profits-soar-but-labor-shortage-looms/482969171/ and yet here you are making less than minimum wage. All for the flexibility of working when you desire. You put in odd hours and call it “convenient”. You...

    Heat Maps?

    On the front page of my app if offers a map of Phoenix with the popular areas highlighted, which is great, except I live in Minneapolis. Also, this happened only once, but while I driving the app would alert me if I was in a high or low demand area. So my questions are.... 1. Is there a...

    UberEats

    Yes, I know you make much more money driving and UE is a rip off, etc, etc, but I am a terrible driver and don't want strangers in my car. Anyways, I guess I'm curious about people's different strategies, I have definitely been able to make some good cash doing this but I'm all about...

    Quality of Lyft passengers really going downhill!

    Lyft is growing and along with that, terrible passengers. It reminds me of UberX riders when I was all-in Uber. I "weaned myself of low-grade UberX riders and felt really happy getting tips on Lyft. Now it seems Uber has alienated many users and they've made the switch and it's clear. I'm not...

    Super Bowl weekend was a bust for many

    https://www.mprnews.org/story/2018/02/07/we-tracked-uber-surge-pricing-during-the-super-bowl-here-is-what-we-learned Some Uber drivers made more money than usual during the Super Bowl, but it wasn't the jackpot many expected. MPR News sampled Uber surge pricing every 15 minutes in five areas...

    Traffic is so bad it's pointless.

    Why even bother if you can't even move. If you can't move you can't make any money. Besides is so stupidly over saturated. Surge is non-exsistant. Locating your passengers is a challenge when THEY don't know where they are cause they aren't from here. Super Bowl is a joke!
