    New to UberEats

    Hey guys, I'm new to the whole Ubereats and I live in a city about 10 or 15 minutes away from Rhode Island. Was just wondering; what are the best spots to do ubereats on a bike and get a lot of deliveries? I don't seem to be getting any where I live, maybe due to the fact that this place is...

    Providence Greenlight Hub

    Is it still open? Google site says "closed permanently". Haven't driven in a few months. Had to update my vehicle info and now need an "inspection".

    Uber Eats Coming to RI

    Got the notice in the app to opt in and then an email notification. First, who is going to do it? Second, is it just going to be Providence or will other cities like Warwick, Cranston, and Woonsocket be part of it.

    Dropoff/Pickup at Providence Place Mall

    I've done a lot of drop offs at Providence Place Mall. It's a popular destination. Usually I drop off in the bus lane in front of Panera Bread. Well, that's obviously not the right spot. Today I watched a Providence cop ticket a Lyft driver just as I was pulling up. I kept on going and looped...

    Slow Start to Week in RI - Strategies for November

    It's been a real grind so far in November. Getting a lot less frequent pings and fewer long trips. Earnings are down about 15% so far. Lots of drivers say November isn't good. So, what do we do to adjust? What are your strategies for getting by during the slow period of winter?

    What Percent of RI Drivers are on this Forum

    I've learned a lot from these forums, but the advice only goes so far. A lot of times I get the 'I don't want to share X secret for fear the hordes will copy me' I guess that's valid in some respect. However, I don't see almost anyone on this board. And with only 110,000 total members on the...

    Solid day around Providence, with surge

    I had a good day around Providence/Lincoln/Cumberland. Caught some surge a few times and wondering if anyone else did. Lots of college kids wanting rides into the train stain, then I'd sit in Providence and catch a request in surge zone. RI may not have high rates but you can get a lot of...
