    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

    Can a RI driver change to Boston Hub and still drive RI?

    I read that Boston drivers can drive in Rhode Island, Mass, Vermont, and Maine. As a RI driver can I do that? Change to a Boston driver? If yes, how do I do that? I live in RI, which is a very small state. I'd really like to expand a little. Thanks for your comments

    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...

    As of April 3rd, no rideshare driver may pickup in Massachusetts until they have passed the Massachusetts Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check, which is more stringent than Uber's background check, but does not require fingerprinting. This also applies to drivers in adjacent states...

    UBER - as seen in the NEW YORK TIMES and other N.E. USA newspapers

    Good Morning... (Good God! It is 5:AM Sunday... decades ago I would be going to sleep about now... These days I am just waking up and squinting at the PC while sucking down some "Wake Me Up" tea.) It has become obvious to me over the last 3 months that the UBER experience on the West Coast, as...
