    Upgrade to UberXL?

    I'm considering trading in my Chevy Equinox for a Chevy Traverse so that I'm eligible for UberXL? Are there enough UberXL requests in the Albany area to make it worth it?

    Solo riders choosing plus / XL

    Just wanted to tell my story with UberXL, I started driving Uber/UberXL with a Chevy Trailblazer, I would get one or two uberXL a day if I was lucky, Some from the airport , But my big days would be the Chippewa/Allen street night crawls with a group of 5-6.

    Why is there no Carson City forum?

    I am going to be joining UberXL and maybe UberSKI. I live in Carson City and plan to service the Carson City and South Lake Tahoe areas for 40 hours a week. I really don't want to go to the Reno, unless I have to, for the same reasons I would not want to go to Las Vegas (as President Trump...

    Is UberSKI worth it?

    I am thinking of buying an AWD SUV with roof rails and a ski rack and buying snow tires so I can become eligible for UberSKI in Reno. This will cost me about $3,100 extra. The car will last two years before I trade it in. Is it worth it? Otherwise I am going with a Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey...

    Anyone having trouble with yearly summary or 1099?

    The yearly summary won't download when I click on it, but with other years I have no issue. Also there's no 1099 yet to download? Uber's always right on schedule!

    Columbus UberXL Times and Locations

    Anybody else Drive XL? If so what are the best locations/times to get XL fares. Driving X with my van almost seems not worth it. I had a little luck one evening near campus but is that it? I didnt have near as much luck on Gameday as I thought I would. Any help or suggestions would be...

    If you were to adjust an X ride at surge pricing to an XL fare, what is the end result?

    I was chilling in a surge area last night and noticed that a couple non-surge XL pings came in nearby, followed by a 2.0 ping for X. This got me thinking, how would Uber handle it if I took an X ride at surge pricing, but took more than 4 riders? Does the surge multiplier apply to the increased...
