    Uber select??

    What’s up Forum. First time poster long time lurker. Haven’t done Uber or Lyft in almost 3 years. Back when I did it, the market was great, awesome pay, less saturated, made a killing on Select and from the looks of it Uber was somewhat decent. I just recently picked up a car that qualifies for...

    How long you waited for background check?

    I signed up on last weekend and went to the Mississauga hub on Monday. Still waiting for background check before PTC. Any recent signups timelines? I’ve been told that it might take 10 business days. Plus 5 business days for PTC. Much appreciate any recent timelines.

    Biking UberEats in Sac

    Hello. I got approved to bike deliver for UberEats (53 days from starting the process, including 2 Greenlight visits, the second of which was extended by the online help sending me to a location closed 2 years earlier) and I was looking for some basic advice. I had delivered for a Calzones...

    I'm a new Uber Person...

    Hi, UberPeople! I started part-time two months ago in Sarasota-Manatee Counties (as I already work full time M-F), pretty much only nights 8-11 pm, later on Saturday. Thank goodness, no bad experiences YET... This forum helps me anticipate them. I believed the Uber propaganda and provide...

    Creating a second account

    I've seen screenshots that this is improper use of an Uber account yet a lady I called on support said that if I wanted to do Uberx I would have to create a new account. Ok, but I already have an account which is solely eats. I tried to make a new account but I just get logged into my regular...

    A few questions from a new Uber driver

    Greetings, (possibly) former Lyft driver trying out Uber for the first time, I just have a few questions. Does the earnings screen show the actual dollar amount you get or do you need to subtract the 25% or whatever they take? Also, does Uber have anything like Lyft's schedule of bonus hours...

    Safety Concerns (As a Newbie)

    Hello Everyone, I'm considering starting driving for Uber/ Lyft, but I have some concerns and I was hoping for some insight. I'm concerned about safety (especially as a young female without any experience.) How often/ do you come across any violent customers? If so, how do you handle them? Or...

    New Blood...

    Hey guys, I'm new here and been poking around for a while tonight. I've been driving Uber part-time for about six months now, nothing crazy. Been toying around with the idea of trying to make it work full-time. I live in the 'burbs, about 30 minutes outside of the city (if 76 doesn't suck..) and...

    Brand new looking for advice!

    After reading a few threads seems like a generally woe is me or hard life is us mindset here. However, I have seen some helpful information too. Other than its it's not as good as it sounds. So my question is what tips would you have for a new uber driver. I'm getting inspected for lyft today...

    New driver (I know you're already annoyed) htf can I see where I'm about to take a pax?

    I'm about 3 weeks in and I know there's a method to this. I have no problem doing the research. I do get turned off by people who complain on forums like this. Moving on, I'm wondering if there is a way to know where a pax wants to go before I pick them up. I found myself in a few sketchy places...

    Where do Drivers in New York like to rent cars from?

    Hey everybody! A while ago I moved to the area from Atlanta. I was driving with Lyft and Uber while living there, but didn't want to move to the city with a car. I already got my TLC license, so now I'm looking into vehicles. Rather than bringing my car here, I'd like to get a feel for the...

    Newbie here...

    Hi guys. Just started driving. No so bad so far. Nothing to particularly brag about but I'm having fun. From the sound of it, I'm not looking forward to late night weekends, so I'm going to shoot for early to mid-morning weekdays. I'll update here later once I've had time to drive on a regular...

    Uber turned me on!

    Just got the text from Das Uber and background check went threw! (Told em I had one, sheesh) I started the process last year but couldn't sign in and stuck with just lyft. But anyway, I am mightily impressed with the app and webinars! Seriously, leaps and bounds over Lyft's app. That and...

    Hey guys, So I was trying to do uber for the first time today, but when I keep trying to go online, Uber keeps telling me my vehicle is not allowed operate in Atlanta (see screenchot).

    Activated New Car

    Stopped by Uber offices on Adelaide as per your recommendation (thanks!) and got my car activated. Need to wait for some documentation before I can get pings in Toronto - will take about 5 days. Looks like I'm stuck driving in the burbs tonight. Hopefully no pings take me downtown or I'm...

    Santa Rosa New Driver

    Hi everyone, I just started a few hours ago in Santa Rosa. I was wondering if anyone had advice on getting rides in a small/moderate town like this, because so far I haven't had any requests except one 25 minutes away in another town after waiting an hour. I need to earn a minimum of 200 a...
