    Idle or drive?

    Hey, newbie driver here. This is my first week driving full-time, I have 79 rides between Uber and Lyft. When it's slower and you need to wait for a request, is it better to drive around or idle? I normally try to find the nearest, busiest place where I can park in the shade. If it's early...

    Outer loop continuous action

    question for the Houston drivers who head directly from the suburbs to the inner loop - do y’all ever experiment just staying in your starting location? Basically every time I get a fare outside the beltway, I end up pinging until I get bored; especially on Sundays which always seem to get me...

    Airport runs ONLY strategy prospect

    Hey everyone, I was wondering whether during daytime Airport runs ony strategy is a winning strategy. I.e. Get to ORD or MDW wait in queue.

    Newbie - 3rd week.... And have found a TON of success (avg $150, before tips, for 7 hours of work)

    I've found a ton of early success - money and tips and job offers mainly - and willing to share since the moral seems so low around here. I'm in a different position because I didn't know the "old" uber and how much better it was. But I put a TON of front end work into this gig - I have found...

    Deadhead miles too high

    All rideshare companies have zero interest in curbing the excessive deadhead miles. Since it isn't their vehicles getting destroyed and costing them money, they have no incentive to minimize deadhead miles for drivers. I suppose they just hope people are really bad at math or don't keep...

    Driving During The Day

    I don't drive daytime (never have), but I have this week free of my normal schedule, so I'm giving it a try. Early this morning I got some surge rides and am now sitting out rush hour (also no surge where I'm at). Just questioning you all if surges pop up regularly in the daytime or is it pretty...
