    New driver in Need of Advice

    I very recently became a new driver in Chico California. The market starting here about a month ago combined with low gas prices, driving a 2005 Honda civic Manual, I felt like the demand was worth it. Even with these advantages, from what I hear from other UberX drivers, makes me hesitant...

    UBER Generally NOT Profitable as a Driver

    I was sucked in by the commercials - why not monetize my vehicle and time...BUT..... After driving for a month and getting my feet wet, there are many issues to why I have not and probably won't be driving anymore with Uber - most of them bear down to simple economics. Fare %: Uber says that...

    Uber XL at X rate.

    Recently I have noticed pax order a XL ride and then cancel just prior to my arrival. They then order a regular X knowing full well I'm still the closest vehicle to their location, having turned around and driven 95% of the way. This way they get a larger vehicle (more leg room I suppose) at the...

    Is there any option to receive only UberXL pings

    Hi, I am one month old uber driver partner in NJ. I am driving a mini van and most of the ping I received is on UberX and I feel it's not worth to drive my big mini van for uberx ( 17 avg mileage) . Is there any option I can configure to receive only UberXL pings?

    Giving out Business Cards to Passengers & Cash

    I always give out my personal business cards to uberx customers that look normal, and I always say my rate is same like UberX except its cash only. So far I was lucky and got a few nice fares out of it. I think this practice is becoming more and more popular with UberX constantly slashing its...

    UberX - simply its not worth it - No Money

    I have tried Uber X for 2 weeks now, and I must say its just not worth it. There is no money to be made, and only person making money is Uber them selves. I have tried Uber X I didn't try Uber Select but it simply wasn't worth it. After I counted the number of hours I have worked, and deducted...

    UberX wait times at SAN

    How long (on average) are you guys waiting for a ping at the airport? I've been pretty unsuccessful with pickups, but I usually give up and bail out after about 20 mins. Is it worth waiting much longer than that?

    Did I make a mistake?

    I picked up an UberX pax going to JFK this morning. I forgot to ask him before leaving where he was going? When I was driving, I realized that I will be going back to NJ empty. That's a lot of dead miles. The gross fare was about $90.00, $20 of which was a surcharge for tolls. I took Outerbridge...

    Interaction with Police

    So I have been pulled over 3 times since starting with Uber and I've learned one thing from it. As long as you're honest with them chances are they will NOT give you a ticket. I was always honest and nice with each officer I interacted with and they would just hand me back my stuff with just...

    The recent changes to Uber's service fee schedule dated: October 14th, 2015; What do you think the outcome will be? Will the recent changes affect our payout or will this new strategy balance between partners and passengers, giving partners more pings per hour (as uber states) or will this new...
