    Where Can I go to Find Info RE the Next Uber Protest in Los Angeles??

    Hey guys, When Lyft stopped with Surge, I stopped with Lyft and, truth be told, I can't honestly figure out why ANYONE would stay with them after that. Uber's "new surge" isn't AS BAD as Lyft, but it's BAD. First off, that absolutely scripted Podcase with a "real" Uber driver who just kissed...

    Surge Scam

    We all recall several months ago when Uber changed the surge. This screwed many of us but at least we could carry a surge to our next ride and at least get paid something. Well it seems they have taken that away. Twice this week I drove through surge zones and app showed minimum surge on...

    The one time you wanna accept Uber pool over Uberx

    I frequently get asked from drivers if I accept Uber poor or express pool. In my opinion, this two features are setup for Uber to milk more money by taking advantage of drivers. I personally decline 9/10 Uber pool/express pool requests. There is only one circumstance I PRIORITIZE Uber pool...
