    A take of two blind pax.

    I dropped a kid off at a college in the city. There were lots of kids walking around like classes had just let out, so I figured I'd stick around and see if I could get a rematch. Sure enough, I got a ping in a couple minutes. I was close enough to the pin that I didn't even have to move the...

    The surge is back

    The whole city of Philadelphia is Surging. A big fat surge covering the city. I got three rides in it before it was gone. It was too big, and lasted too long to be a fluke. Surge, surge, surgety surge.

    I don't know what to call this. Crazy guy in street?

    This is Philly. Don't know what to make of it. Don't know if I need a gun or a sense of humor. I was a captive audience. Cars lined up behind me. Everybody watched. Nobody beeped. I guess it's OK to post this, since the guy wasn't a pax. Crazy Guy

    Lost Item At Wells Fargo Center (76ers)

    I picked up this gentleman and his wife in Old City around 1pm today. He was one of those front runner Philadelphia fans that doesn't know jack shit about basketball and is clearly along for the ride. He had the Eastern Conference ALLLLL figured out. Here was his plan: Pax: "Well, we win today...

    Penn Students I Want To Swerve Into At A High Speed But Legally Can't

    Penn Students. The elite. They walk in the middle of a busy intersection while optically conjoined with their Iphone +++ They say "yaaasss' "I'm living my best life" & brag about their Insta fans (LOL just kidding) "but like tots's seriously..." They are the future leaders of science, medicine...

    Is there a way to see the live surge in a neighboring state?

    I live in South Jersey and usually drive in Philadelphia which happens to be 20min away from me. I have to pay a toll to go over there and it’s worth it because of the amount of rides you get as well as higher payout. Looking for a way to see the current live Uber driver map in the neighboring...

    Phishing in Philly and other observations...

    Had a fare take me to Philly Airport for the 1st time on Tuesday. I have to say, I really liked the setup they have down there. A que system they BADLY need in EWR, the TNC lot near the terminals AND a Wawa near by that you can still stay in the que while making a pit stop. Waited about 25...

    Total expenses per month, including gas, lease, and insurance, are $1200. That doesn't include Scotch Guard or car washes. Never done this before so I have a few basic dumb questions -- 1) If you drive 1000 miles a week, can it be profitable? 2) Is it possible to drive 1000 miles/week? 3) How...
