    Is the airport serious right now???

    How is there a $9 surge on Uber right now at Logan Airport but yet 145 cars in the queue?!? It just doesn’t make any sense at all! Not too mention that I just counted 5 out state plates in one row. Mostly NY plates but the cars don’t have any rental decals on them like most “GetAround” vehicles...

    Severely slow lately

    It used to be I get requests consistently, so I ask this to all my fellow drivers out there. Has it been unusually slow? I’m sure this is all of California and not just San Diego...it has gotten severely slow. Requests seem to only be one per hour, at least it was for me today. Now I been...

    Odd app behavior!

    Did you find it odd that whenever you turn the app on, Uber punishes you for having it off for a while and won't send you a job right away but rather make you wait a half an hour or more despite being in a busy location? They will also start you off with a pool. I only started noticing this in...

The proud, the entitled, the humbled, the cheap, the fancy, the know it all, the jerk, the racist, the bum, the drunk, the student, the careless parent.. am I missing someone? Tell me in the comment below please..

    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...

    How come my ratings for my Uber rider app is stuck?

    I'm an Uber driver as well and I've noticed that my rider rating is stuck at 4.78 the entire day. I've treated my relatives from Australia with plenty of trips and was exploring different places in San Francisco today and did tourist stuff.

    Question about Uber Central & Lyft Concierge: Do businesses/services use the pax's account?

    I've taken my car to the dealership in my town few times before for maintenance. One of the incentives that the adviser offers are a ride back and forth through Uber or Lyft with the Central and Concierge platforms where the fare is on them. Businesses, hotels and services like hospitals use...

    Radio or Music in UberX Booming in Back Speakers

    I am a frequent UberX pax. When I get into an UberX and I am stressed about work, I do not want to tell the driver to turn the music down. I do not want to seem bossy. Sometimes the driver seems easy to ask. Sometimes they seem like stone idols who do not want to be bothered. What really...

    Uber Drivers, does your ratings go down after you give lower stars for your PAX at end of rides?

    I'm thankful that I don't really get matched with lousy PAX on Uber that often, but few weeks ago, I gave a PAX three stars (I don't want to be matched with this PAX ever again) for reeking of marijuana scent and that the scent hinders my judgment when driving. Afterwards, my ratings dropped by...

    America runs on booze and ....

    I would love to see Uber enforcing registration through a verification process for passengers where no child under 18 is allowed to use or sign up on the app. scanning their driver license like we do would suffice! Then again, they'll lose out of big money for sure! It seems that everyone who...

    How many people can UberX take in one ride? Assuming I'm the one who request the ride along with my 2 other friends. The ride I requested from this location to that location is $50, so does that mean the cost only $50 for 3 people? We each also have a small carry on luggage, does that count too...

    You guys will love this!

    So I wanted to look back at how my trips would be affected with the new pay cuts, and as far as I can tell, they replaced my earnings with the new rates! Isn't this illegal somehow? See the attachment for a Sunday trip in October, well before this week's S*** Show.
