    News on LAX rideshare

    http://abc7.com/travel/holiday-travel-monday-marks-busiest-day-of-holiday-week-at-lax/4767998/ It says price for rideshare quadrupled at times? I never saw it go past 2.5x morons. The wait for the rides were up to 20 minutes? More like upto hour and a half. Get your reporting straight.

    How was your Drunksgiving (Blackout Wednesday)?

    First time driving in a week, after waiting for car repairs. I was nonstop 11 pm to 5 am. I would have gone longer but used both destination filters by mistake and deadheaded from Chicago. (Sometimes changing arrival time to a supposed existing filter invokes a new one). I made $130. A year...

    Thanksgiving

    Happy Turkey y’all! I’m trying to work today and I need a game plan. Where are the best places to go for rides and what times are the best, so I can avoid wasting gasoline?

    Uber giving us thanks

    Just got my Thanksgiving email from Uber, thanking me for being there for the pax. Couldn't help but notice that they are endorsing drivers to pick up unaccompanied minors from soccer games. Anyone else catch that?

    I am Thankful for...

    In the spirit of Thanksgiving (or whatever you prefer to call it) and the start of the Holiday season I’d like to hear what some of y’all are thankful for. The skies are gray and it’s chilly here today so I need some positivity. Doesn’t have to be rideshare related.

    How late to drive on Thanksgiving Day?

    I'm trying to figure out whether to drive on Thanksgiving, and at what time I should quit. In your experience, do pax still request AP rides on the morning of Thanksgiving Day? I expect almost everyone who's traveling will have already left earlier in the week. OTOH, is the entire morning &...

    Turkey day ride

    Took a Lyft today, over the river and through the woods, to grandmother's house. The driver was blind, but it was okay because their service dog rode up front. On a serious note, saw lots of law enforcement out looking for speeders and drunks. Watch out for speed traps if you drive this...

    Black Wednesday

    This article was written last year. The focus here is Naperville, which has a heavy bar presence in its downtown area. In my opinion the night before Thanksgiving doesn't get the same attention as NYE or St. Pat's, but its a significant party night. Especially with many college students home...

    Is Thanksgiving Day worth it?

    I'm thinking that a lot of people will want an Uber ride and a lot of Uber drivers won't wan to drive. Is it worth getting on the road for a bit? Potential surges?

    Uber Promotes Thanklessness not Thankfulness in People

    The second Monday in October is Thanksgiving here in Canada. Every person in this world has things they should be thankful for. Traditionally, people are thankful for their lives, family, food, etc. People need to be more thankful outside of their immediate sphere(self). Be thankful to your...
