    Curious: What is the highest surge you have gotten with this new flat rate surge?

    Mine so far is $28 surge. It was XL ONLY and was the perfect combination of Baseball game ending, Kennedy center ending, and rain passing through, plus late nights got crowd going out.. The perfect storm.

    Buying a new car, how profitable is Uber XL - Monday Mornings & Friday Evenings?

    Happy Holidays and Happy 2018! Two weeks ago I posted a thread with the title "Need to buy a car, how profitable is Uber Select - daytime/weekdays?" The consensus seems to be that it's not very busy, not consistent,so I'm considering buying a minivan with the intent to drive for XL instead...

    Uber Premium and XL

    Is anyone driving LUX only in Miami or Miami Beach? Everyone I know driving LUX is also driving SUV LUX and XL. Some drivers have told me that out of the three platforms, XL is the real bread winner and LUX is basically only for weekends.........hmmmmm....Fact or Fiction?

We noticed you’ve...

    Tried XL last night...

    I finally got email "support" to give me the option to switch to xl only on one of my authorized vehicles. Last night I went online as xl only and didn't get a single ping. I watched the hawks game as I waited, but got nothing. I live in the burbs, but I'm in a heavily populated area. Is this...

    Uber XL as a legit way to avoid uber pool ?

    So right now i drive x and xl and am very against uber pool. And i know i have the ability to ask Uber to driver strictly x OR strictly XL, soooooooo why not request to drive XL ONLY and therefore logistically be unable to take uber pool riders while driving XL. Thoughts from other XL drivers ?

    XL only demand in Metro Detroit?

    Does anyone have experience in Metro Detroit driving Uber XL only? I am looking to drive only Friday and Saturday evenings. There does appear to be some demand based on XL surging more frequently that the rest; however, I am not naive enough to believe surges actually equate to demand. My...

    XL Only

    I'm new to the forum but have been driving Uber since August '15. I'm on the X and XL platform, but I would like to know if there is a way you can drive for just the XL platform solely.
