    Uber’s request Algorithms

    I’ve been lurking reading through these forums and something happened to me more than a few times with Uber and receiving requests. There has been such slow days lately and I found something weird with the requests. I literally would be sitting for thirty minutes or more in a spot waiting for...

    Is there anyone else in Melbourne getting 2-0 requests in a 4 hour time-span? I don't know what's going on its the busiest time of the week and it always has been!

    Specific Rider/Driver Request Tips

    Just looking for any tips, tricks, advice or basic knowledge around ways for a PAX to request a specific driver. Obviously I'm aware that Uber selects the "closest" driver, so the idea is to either be very close to the PAX or in the same car. I read a tip yesterday that said to have the PAX...

    Stacked pings on LYFT?

    Hello Lyft Drivers, Just wondering if anyone has received stacked pings on LYFT (This does NOT include LYFT Line)? Stacked pings are when you receive a second consecutive request before you completed the first request and have dropped the passengers off. I have never received any stacked...

    XL or Select??

    If you were to upgrade from X, will you get a car the can do Select or a minivan to do XL? Its a legit question from an XL driver from Puerto Rico with 3500 rides in 8 months who is about to get a car and knows no one here that can advise him properly. I know some vehicles can do both, but the...

    Is it harder to get the final few rides of a Quest promotion?

    Am I getting paranoid? In Chicago we get these Quest promotions, like a $70 bonus for 25 rides between Mon. and Fri. Getting around 20 rides is easy. The problem is those last 4 or 5. Has anyone else noticed this? On a Thursday night, for example, I'll be 4 or 5 short of achieving that...

    Set requests to vibrate -> hmm...trouble reaching uber server

    Any advice on getting the new 'Set requests to vibrate' message you can click on the home page of the driver app to work? It always gives the 'hmm...trouble reaching uber server' message for me. I've missed several runs because of this. Requests to support have been useless as they don't seem to...

However, for whatever reason, I am now getting tons of pool requests and all requests with this new screen come in looking like pool, even though they may not say Pool. What is the...

    UberEats Tipping, Rating & Matching

    Tipping sucks for both delivery and pickup. :( Some will argue that they subjectively see better tips on either delivery or pickup. Others will claim that tipping is better for premium services (uberBlack, uberSelect, etc) or worse for uberPool. Tipping still sucks on uberAnything vs. LYFT...

    New Drivers Get More Pings?

    I've seen this idea expressed several times on this forum, but does anybody have any real evidence that it's more than an "Urban Legend"? There are many theories why Uber does this. One variation goes I do believe that new drivers get more bonus/guarantees, but I'm more skeptical about more...

    Requests out of Surge Area, Cancellations and Deactivation

    I'm new to posting here, my first time, but not new (depending on your viewpoint) to driving. I have close to 2000 rides in a very short period. I've noticed something recently with requests coming from Uber when I drive. I'm getting more and more requests that are unreasonably (to put it...

    Anyone use the new "Stop Trip Requests" feature yet? Just saw it in my app today. I'll be using this on every trip, lol. On a side note, it seems there's been more features added to the driver app lately. Is this unusual or has Uber always been adding features constantly? Was thinking it...
