    Setting Destination

    Hi y'all! Can anyone tell me--if I set a destination in Uber and then get ride requests, can I assume that those riders are headed to my destination? It seems like a no-brainer, but I was in hurry to get home and I wasn't sure if all those requests were headed my way. Please help!! UberGalYear1

    Based upon your experience, what are the busiest hours?

    I realize this will vary from location to location. So in your response, please describe the area you drive in: huge town, decent sized town, suburbs, small town, etc. Monday–Thursday, Friday–Saturday, and Sunday might be a good way to break it up if your location is anything like mine. I drive...
