    Q: Why's UberX named UberX?

    What The...? My First Riders in SLC

    Okay... So I set out this morning after watching the Rider App for awhile and seeing for over an hour that there were consistently 7 or 8 Select drivers within just a few miles of my location. I thought "well, this is my first day, so I'll just head out and see what happens". I needed to fuel...

    Uber Pool Wrong Number

    When I've been driving the last week, I've had 2 different numbers when I do an UberX and UberPool ride. The UberPool ride number when I call is never the right number and unfortunately connects to this random person. How do I go about getting rid of this number or getting a new one?

    Average weekend pay?

    I am a prospective driver. I am wondering what everyone else averages on friday and saturday nights (as those would be the times I could drive the most). I realize that everyone has different mile and minute rates, however I figured it might not hurt to ask anyways.

    Weekly pay in Orlando?

    First off, this is only for drivers with experience. Keep your opinions to your self if your not a driver. Just straight facts from experience. Thanks. How much on average is your gross income weekly on UberX? Let's suppose I work 10-16 hours daily.

    Aggresive drunk guys squeezing 5 in an UberX

    After what happened to me 2 weeks ago I vouched I am not picking up anymore MALES at night unless they're alone and that varies.

    From UberEATS to UberX

    I am a new driver for UberEATS but now I am interested in doing UberX. I have been approved for UberEATS and didn't like it very much. I'm wondering if I have to reapply all over to do UberX or can I just email support? In addition if I have to reapply do I use the same email?

    Newbie - 3rd week.... And have found a TON of success (avg $150, before tips, for 7 hours of work)

    I've found a ton of early success - money and tips and job offers mainly - and willing to share since the moral seems so low around here. I'm in a different position because I didn't know the "old" uber and how much better it was. But I put a TON of front end work into this gig - I have found...

    Cop gave me a warning for trying to kill him...

    I learned today that only some offences carry double demerit points, so these would just incur usual points. For more information on fines, demerit points and offences see these two links: www.rms.nsw.gov.au/documents/roads/safety-rules/demerits-general.pdf...

    Pickup Request at AT&T Park

    It seems like 80% or so of the pickup requests I get on the northeast side of SF are at locations that do not have passenger loading zones. Today I had a guy drop his pin right under a no stopping sign at AT&T park. He stood right next to it waiting for me. I figured it was him so I gave him...
