LevelX, look at Danny's location! If I lived there I'd occasionally be caught lurking among the pricks at Avalon

Even more reason for the never attend rule .... leaving all the UberX rides for Danny!!

But seriously, Uber has done ZERO to promote this new pickup location. Haven't see boo in the pax app or emails. People will be 'flying in', so maybe a quick message to all Australian users so they know might drum up some more business.

As we have seen stalking the unlucky drivers who have rocked up there like Danny and co, not many rides are happening at this stage.

Trip limits on time and distance
While there is no limit on the distance you travel during a trip, trips may automatically end a few hours after starting. Your app will notify you if a trip is about to reach its time limit and end.

If a trip ends automatically, your rider can request a new ride if he or she would like to continue. You should receive this trip request with the option to accept it. Please note that we cannot adjust fares for a ride continued after the partner app has ended the trip.

As a driver-partner, taking a long trip is your decision. If a rider has requested a ride to a distant destination, it is good practice to discuss this before starting the trip.

According this u can refuse pax to take Geelong from Avalon or Melb
Can I accept a long trip?
When riders use their app to select a pickup location and destination, they are able to choose any destination. However, you may occasionally receive a ride request with a destination that is farther than you wish to drive. If this happens, please cancel the trip. The rider can then request pickup from other drivers nearby.

Additionally, please note that trips may automatically end after a few hours. You will be notified. If this happens, your rider can request a new ride if he or she would like to continue. You should receive this trip request with the option to accept. It’s good practice to discuss this with your rider.

Speaking of TSC I seen a TSC car out at T4 this afternoon, didn't see any TSC officers around though. It was parked at the end of the '2nd row' that is blocked off for drop offs. So out of sight until you had been leaving the drop off area.

Also wouldn't put it past the TSC to block off and remove the Avalon pickup area. Even though they really have no power to do that. They can stand there and write tickets though for each 'pickup' thats about it.

Your right about that, and I don't think Lindsay Fox would be too happy about it.

Sadly, Lindsay Fox has been sliding into Alzheimer's for a while. His son, Michael, runs the biz. Dearly wish Linfox would start an Australian ride share operation.
