    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...

    New Uber National Campaign

    If anyone ever wanted proof what level of quality riders use Uber these days, the campaigns done by a Gold Coast agency sums it up. "Our brief was to make it relatable for a mass audience", more like mass morons. The fact that they seem happy to be on MTV placed along shows like "Spring break...

    UberX about to get a lot more saturated

    Was at Starbucks and there was a black SUV with LM plates parked just outside. I figured by the suit he was the driver. He made a comment about the banana bread and that sparked a convo. I asked him if he does Uber. He said he does but it's totally dead and luckily he has clients that keep him...

    Does anyone Uber Select?

    Does anyone do UBER select? If so how do you like it? Is it more work that doing UBER X? What are some pro's and con's? I will be moving to Florida in the future and was just wondering how different it was and or if anyone recommended it. Thanks for your time.

    AT what $/ mile rate would you be a happy Uber Driver and at what $/mile would you Quit .

    So we are at 75c per mile now for X platform , actually 56.25 after the uber cut . it is very hard to go full-time on that rate but it`s still doable ( as in working for minimum wage ) . if the rate was about 1.25 ( like old times) uber would be again a nice gig wouldn't even need surges at that...

    Eats or x??

    I recently signed up for Ubereats, and when I didn't get enough calls, I also signed up for UberX (with a different car). I went and spoke to an Uber rep in person, and she set up my account to do both. Or so she said... This morning, I changed my car to the one available for X, and all I got...

    Avoiding UberPool question.....with poll!

    Hey guys and gals, I have a quick question for you guys. Last night I received an UberPool request, I accepted it because I would just go offline after I pick them up because no way I'm doing UberPool. But because it wouldn't let me access google maps, so I cancelled the trip. I can't stand the...
