    Uber Drivers, please leave your uber(Customer App) ON!

    I don't know if someone else already posted this but I was thinking...on a busy weekend(or a slow Tuesday) morning, we(Uber Drivers) should download and leave uber customer accounts on to generate some Surge. Does that make any sense? Is that how surges start anyway or am I not understanding...

    Have any XL drivers managed to opt out of X option?

    Does anyone know if an XL or Select vehicle driver can opt out of being available for uberx? The rate on X simply isn't worth it for most calls. Turning down the X runs will end in getting you dropped as a contractor or so I have heard.

    Just got this text, in the service agreement they say one thing but here they say something else. Please judge for your self.

    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...

    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...
