    Unusual results yesterday

    Nothing exciting here... Just posting between requests... Normally my U/L ratio is 50/50 or 60/40 in favor of Uber. Last night I did 12 Uber and 22 Lyft. Rather unusual. The % of pax that tip me (either cash or in app combined) is usually 25-40% on Uber and usually 33-50% on Lyft. My Lyft...

    Weekly stats: Week Two

    What is an ant? Someone who drives for base, among other things. Well, that’s everyone in Portland now, I think. 2nd week of January, tracking driving stats 30+ rides on each platform. My ratio was exactly 50/50, which is strange since I often gave heavy preference to Uber (due to the $3...

    Nice Sunday ride

    Pickup in Wilsonville. Young couple wanting to go to that amusement park in Sellwood. That's a nice long drive, I'm happy with it... We arrive and the place is deserted. Look on website, it says open 1-4. Time: 2pm. Ain't no one around. Bummer! "Driver? Do you know where Pioneer Place is? We...

    Staying positive on a slow night

    Unbelievably slow tonight! In the spirit of positivity, here are some reasons to be thankful for the slowness: . Traffic is awesome right now . Didn't get summoned to Moda, not once . My brain doesn't hurt thinking about how to spend all that money I didn't make . No service dogs, no drunks...

    Free BK meals for life?

    Man has lunch a local Burger King, almost a daily thing for him. Uses restroom, ends up getting locked in for an hour. After he's out, the manager promised a free meal every time he came in. They kept the promise for 2 weeks, then corporate says No more. Suing for the cost of a free meal for...

    Just another average slow night

    Lots of people still out of town. Traffic is light, that's a positive, but rides are fewer. Uber showing a surge of $7.50 at the airport, yet there are 56-60 cars in the queue. Fake surge? Why yes, I think so. Almost killed a pedestrian downtown. Dumbo decides to cross Broadway with almost...

    Anyone want to track their numbers with me?

    A few times now I have tracked numbers for a month and posted them here week by week. Has anyone found this useful? Does anyone want to track numbers with me? Was thinking of 4 weeks of tracking, starting with Monday. If no one gives a crap I will quit wasting cyberspace with my stats.

    The surge games continue with Uber

    Was in Vancouver just across the river from the airport. Did a drop off. Uber showed a flat dollar surge at PDX of $15. Wow, that's worth driving there for! Lyft showed 6 or 8 cars in the Q. With the 'new and improved' surge, it should stay there 3x longer, right? So I head to 205. Halfway over...
