    Riddle me this.. I'm getting no ride requests. Why?

    Over the past week or so, my pings have become oddly few and far between. I opened my passenger app, and yep, there I am as a driver. Surrounded by some other cars in the near vicinity. However, when I send a passenger request from my girlfriend's phone it goes to another driver 10...

    When Trump starts Deporting the scab drivers

    I hope the State Department puts an 800 number on there and we get these scab drivers out of here and it will open up more rides for us -- these scabs from other countries are stealing our rides and they drive for sometimes 20-30 hours at a time, and they allow Uber to rip us off and lower the...

    Pax Apps Says 16ETA, Even Though I'm Online

    Anyone ever run across this situation. You look at the pax app knowing you are logged in on the partner app too, and the ETA for a ride to the location you are sitting at is more than 15 mins. What's the deal with this?

    Hello chauffeurs of the west side of the Atlantic I come from the island of Iceland where we do not have Uber, yet. I have been anxiously waiting to get to use this service and now might be my lucky break. Next Tuesday evening I will be landing in Orlando Florida (mco) quite late, 10pm but...

    Looking for Sarasota driver that gave a ride to 'Jeff' around 5:00AM early Saturday morning.

    Pickup would have been on Bee Ridge Road and destination would have been south off of Clark Road. Please contact me if you remember providing this passenger a ride. He was in my vehicle just prior and did some damage to it. I've reached out to Mother ship but have not received a response. Thanks. .

    after a rate slash, I'm done with Uber's slave wages

    (I posted this in Nov, but cross-posting to the QUIT forum now for more eyeballs) I've been driving on and off since January 2015 shortly after Uber entered the market here. Recently the per mile charge was dropped from $1.25 to $0.95. This was, by the way, very shortly after the "safe rides...
