    Frustrated with Uber’s ‘Compensation of Time’ during rides w/ traffic

    I’m writing to publicize my frustrations with Uber’s ‘Trip Fare Equation’ (TFE) that I believe does not fairly adjust for traffic time during rides. TFE follows an equation with a very low & static ‘cost per minute’ that I say does NOT appropriately compensate for shorter rides with LOTS of...

    Sydney airport gridlock

    it seems the taxi entry of one lane, is backing up across Joyce Drive, when taxis enter from O’Riordan St, which is also blocking Ross Smith Drive from entering the airport. Any chance Sydney Airport would put in some traffic management for 9-10pm peak hours?

    Driving in the middle of the day

    Hey, I just started driving again since last Winter, but my first time living down here in Denver. I drove Boulder in my off season (winter) last year and it was pretty slow during the day (10 am - 4 pm). I never drove super early and usually stopped because of traffic for rush hour, then drove...

    Staying home on Halloween

    I was driving last year and fell for the whole: it’s a high earning night bull. I got stuck in WeHo and made a whopping 15 bucks. Uber didn’t update their mapping with street closures and that got me in trouble. I’m staying home and good luck to the greedy.

The judge told me that after getting my license back it will be...

    Make more or less during major road closures?

    This weekend parts of both 99 AND I-5 will be closed in Seattle. I'm wondering if I should just get out of town for the weekend or stay and make money. Do you typically earn more or less when major roads are closed? Common Sense would tell me that you would earn more because trips would take...

    There Must Be 50 Ways to Leave Your Rider

    So you pull up to the customer and he tells you he is going to the airport...it is 40 minutes to get there and you know it is 90 minutes to get back downtown. Your morning is screwed even with the $7.00 "new surge." But you are a nice guy. You don't want to be rude but you don't want to get...

    Those people who drive straight through a red when green arrows light up

    See this about once daily. What's going through their head when they realize they're about to T-bone a left turning car as they casually cruise through a dead red all alone?

    What’s up with traffic lately?

    So I’m curious what factors weigh in on the lack of traffic downtown over the past cpl weeks. I’m not complaining by any means but it’s been bizarre for SF to be so easy to navigate even with the giants at home, during am/pm rush, and with some major conferences (RSA, Blockchain) in town. I...
