    So I'm a greenhorn, in my 4th week coming up driving Jackson, MS. I commute 70 miles one way to get to Jackson. Started Friday Saturday nights 9pm to 5-6am. Added Thursday night last weekend. It's a part time gig for me as I have a state job Sundays through Wednesdays. Just hoping to hear from other drivers, Lyft & Uber in the area.

    I do drive through Vicksburg on my way in and 4 out of five times just passing through have picked up a fare, so V'Burg drivers chime in as well.

    Heck since it seems MS can't get a city here anyway we might as well all join forces! Gulfport, Biloxi, Pass Christian, Ocean Springs, Hattiesburg, Vicksburg, Jackson, Oxford calling all drivers.

    My longest trip to date yesterday. Rained out regular job in Vicksburg decided to try Jackson daytime on a Monday. W/O the long trip would have been crappy day. Lesson learned, at least my long trip brought me closer to home.

    I'm learning on the fly. 1st and 2nd week were Thursday and Friday with 2nd week including the supposedly $400 new driver bonus that in actuality turned out to be only $60 after "guaranteed earnings above $400" wtf over?

    Just me, damn I should be killing it!
     
  3. Just started myself in the Starkville area but no one here seems to know Uber is available. I am thinking of trying the Oxford or Jackson areas. Any suggestions?

    Stay put for home games ur in now that it's football season. If state is playing away and Ole Miss is home might be worth ur drive up. From what I hear lot of Memphis driver's doing the game weekends in Oxford which should not be allowed IMo.

    Quite a few especially at night, I've only done a couple of weekends there put relocating to Biloxi tomorrow so think I may try some day time vs. night time there. BOL

    Hi from Jackson. Part-time here, not my main job but a useful fill-in. Mostly having fun with it so far, it's been 4 months.
