    Tampa airport, how I hate thee.

    When I started over a year ago, drivers were in the queue anywhere on airport property. I parked in 1 free hour short term parking, used the airport restrooms, sometimes ate in the airport Wendy's. Then they required us to be in the cell phone waiting lot...it had restrooms like an interstate...

    General Questions (New Driver)

    New driver here, just have a couple of questions I'm hoping you can help answer. 1. How close do I have to be to an Uber ride to get the ping? Is there a limit to the distance or does the app simply ping the closest driver? 2. Is there a way to see the destination before accepting the trip...

    No Poo for You!

    I was camping at the airport last night because it's a guaranteed ride, right? But it was a brutal wait. And after the first ride, I went and got dinner and headed back to the queue for another ride. Well, 90 minutes later, I have to go to the restroom and I'm gathering up my belongings to go...

    Ultimate guide: how to trick the FIFO queue system (XL,LUX,SUV)

    This trick was here for years, but after late app update with the possibility to change the service without going offline made it much easier to use. 1. Get closer to the FIFO zone, but don’t get into it. 2. Turn on all 4 services (X,XL,LUX,SUV), or those that you have with X. 3. Go online...

    Will I still be in the front of the airport queue if I got a very short trip from the airport?

    The question sounds confusing... I admit. The case is I often spend a long time waiting in the Brisbane airport queue until I get orders. However, the order could be quite short... no worth waiting... But I can only see the destination after meeting the rider, you know... I've even got orders...

    Airport PickUps?

    I went and tried one airport pickup, but, the pax did not answer and also I was not sure the pickup location. Is it at the arrival passenger pickup section or the arrival commercial section?

    SAN Short Rides

    I never wait in the airport pen but I figure this could be a plus for some of you. I just got a text about getting a preferred queue position after dropping off after a short ride. Happy hunting!

I click either "Earnings", "Ratings" or "Account" and then I press "Home" in order to update know where I am in line. I'm using...
