    New to OC/LA, best way to make money here?!?!

    Hey everyone, I just moved to the OC from Boston. Back home, I was making 200-300 bucks profit every day driving UberX working 6-10 hours a day, m-f, starting usually at 3- 4pm. I figured out a system that worked well for me there. I have since moved to the OC 5 months ago and, no matter WHAT...

    v4 App Issue - "Confirm Arrival" & "Stop New Requests"

    The v4 app for Android auto downloaded and installed itself two days back. Used it yesterday and, overall, it seems to work well with no problems. The differences seem to be less functional and more cosmetic. However, noticed that two features (that I do use regularly) seem to be either hidden...

    LA Boost - OC Boost

    I get so many passengers that go from LA - OC (Orange County). How come we can’t get boost bonuses in both places? If it’s rush hour, why on Earth would I deadmile in traffic back to LA County? Should be able to benefit in both counties. #ijs What do you all think?

    SF driver moving to SoCal. Any advice?

    I currently live in SF and I will be moving to Chino Hills. I grew up in the LA area so I know SoCal very well. Which region has the best quest bonuses? LA, OC, IE, or SD? Also, which region has the least amount of headway--time and distance between trips?

    No passenger complaints in 18 months then 4 since last Friday.

    I've been driving OC and a little LA for 2 years. I had no passenger complaints on my ratings until one week ago. Suddenly I have 2 for navigation and Pick Up experience last Friday afternoon and one for cleanliness. Cleanliness I can accept perhaps as the passenger floor mats had become a...
