    I just signed up to drive today. When I try to go online the app thinks I am in Cheyenne...I am hundreds of miles from there.
    Any tips?
    And no, I don't really want to hear 'Quit driving for Uber'...;-)

    Welcome to the forum.:)

    Logically either contact them via app, phone or visit your local hub to resolve.

    Tips ? - there is so much info here.
    This newbie link maybe of assistance.

    Also consider checking your local Lyft/Uber web sites that may include city/airport info, hot spots and times etc.

    Did that, just thought maybe it could be a settings issue that was fixable on my end. Doesn't appear to be so. Thanks for the reply!

    So, looks like they accidentally authorized me to operate in Jackson, MS.
    I am in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (hundreds of miles from Cheyenne).
    They say it might take a few weeks to sort out...

    Sounds like your account was set to the wrong city/state. If you haven't done so already, tell them to change it to your proper city. They say it could take a few weeks. I think they tell us the max, but in reality it can take a lot less, which has been my experience in the past.

    I don't know who there reviews documents, but my address, license, insurance, and registration all say Jackson Hole, WY.
    Bots?

    This is actually indicative of what all of your future interactions with Uber will be like.
