285 at DFW 235 at LOVE right now.

Thats 500 less drivers elsewhere though..

Select XL???
I fly into Dallas Love Field all the time. What I do is take the free Dart Bus to the first stop off the airport across from the Shell Station.
I request Uber or Lyft from the Shell Station bypassing the airport pickup fee :smile: This also bypasses you all waiting in the Que ( sorry ) and gives my fare to some lucky Uber / Lyft Driver as I'm headed to a far off destination :wink:

I don't get it. Why would anyone enter a queue with that many drivers in it? How long does it take to clear out 400 drivers, even in a big airport? Granted, I drive UberX, and I'm iniMinneapolis so the queue never gets bigger than maybe 70. But I don't even think of driving to the airport unless the queue is 1-5 in which case I'll get a request when I get within a couple miles of the airport. Better to take rides that are close to me NOW.
It's not about the airport trip, it's a chance for drivers to throw all their trash on the ground and urinating on it as a gesture of respect and honor

Say what you like, I'd much rather pee on the ground than use the elegant Executive Lounges there!

I actually go to the Rental Car Center instead, because bus exhaust fumes are an improvement over the TNC lot.

Not so bad here... though 95 cars could be 2 hours. It does seem like a lot of black and select cars.

That does seem like a lot but if you think about it, DFW is the fourth busiest airport in the US (and top 10 or so in the world) with some 65 million passengers a year. Based on that alone, these queues should move quickly.

But I live in Toronto and never been to Dallas (although had a layover in DFW once)

Here in Toronto, we call the Pearson staging lot The Shitter.

And it’s been “Full” 24/7 for a few weeks now. Even at 2 in the morning with no flights expected soon. Lot capacity is 150 cars.

I suspect allot of drivers are actually living out of their cars there.

If there are >300 people in queue, how long does it take for you number get reached when your position 300?
It's gonna vary widely, depending on day of week and time of day. I've seen the Miami queue move at 10 rides per minute (so 30 minutes at 300). I've gone in the queue when it was 50-60 many times and gotten a ride in 5-7 minutes.

And I've seen it move at 1 per minute or less. :eek:

I used to time the queue to see how it was moving, but our queue is so fraudulent these days I don't even bother. It was 16-20 and surging a little yesterday afternoon and I was within 10 minutes of the airport, but just went elsewhere.
