I had a Pax going to work this morning (UT), with a stop at Voodoo donuts, took him less than 2 minutes. He bought me a donut without me asking for one and gave me a $5 tip.

The donut gesture was nice along with the tip. 😃
Yummy! Last time I took someone she wanted Round Rock donuts and she actually brought me a dozen!! I wish it could be mixed not just glazed. Haha too much to ask. Unfortunately we don't get so many nice pax anymore. Took like 20 Uber x trips last week, my rating dropped from 5.00 (499 5* and 1 4*) to 4.99(494 5*, 6 4*) i am pretty sure the 5 4* all came from x passengers, as all lux/select tipped pretty well. Just don't understand why those people are so demanding.

Yay we made it through the summer slump!! Students are back / football games are back. Noticeable increase in tourism and (bachelor/bachelorette) parties. Many hot days still to come so keep that A/C cranking, but looks like we're all steady busy enough to forget about the Sept. Thread post. :cools:
My weekend was decent but other than that, still struggling. 😒

Dont worry about your struggle, looks like Uber wants to get in the payday loan business. They just sent me a message about a survey on if I would use such a thing.

Seriously though, hit it hard friday/saturday, $500 to $600 would be possible. Then, get up Sunday morning and get those creoles back to the airport. If you're doing this fulltime, you gotta work when the money is good. If its busy, DONT USE LYFT DAMNIT! you're just giving them the surge money, at least uber still lets us have some of it.

had a good weekend last weekend. Went out a few hours early during the UT game and hit about $200, nearly $500 over the weekend for about 18 hours.

Probably going out much earlier than normal tomorrow due to LSU game though.

Wow, they are truly bottom feeders.
Paying drivers so little that they are desperate enough to get payday loans - then getting them trapped into that cycle.

Guess Title loans are next on their list.

Haven't been getting so many lux rides since last usc game. Had to turn off Lyft lux and Uber select. 10-5, 275 on Uber, 99 on Lyft all with ride bonus and 50 cash tips. Call off the day, all your money to make.

Any Pros and Cons of using the toll road when taking Pax from airport to the North (Round Rock, Georgetown, Cedar Park, etc)?

I don't know if the Uber app or AT&t's powers but I'm having so much of a problem accepting rides and giving things an update with Uber today.
Post automatically merged:

I literally just drove through almost the entire surge area, the app showing me online, but once I closed and reopened the app it said I was offline and the surge had dropped his price.

Did 6 out of 8 as LUX today (so far...) with the 1st and last being X.
Five hours and $230 so far. ~$60 of that is PPZ.

Seems like it was so busy pax upgraded to LUX just to get a ride.
Switch to LUX only if you can and chill in a PPZ.

Currently Lyft is 'winning' with a plus $10.50 earnings...so far.
I'll get them down to negative number after the game!

Lyft lux sucks and it was busy, had to turn it off. Uber lux/select is the real deal.
