I've been doing Uber only for 8 months and noticed decrease in trips, sometimes over an hour for next. I see combo signs in all other driver's windows Uber & Lyft. Can you keep busier doing both? Pros & cons?
Most people that do this run multiple apps to keep busy Back when I delivered humans, I only ran Uber, but since I started delivering food, I run GrubHub and UberEats simultaneously and pick the most lucrative deliveries from eitherI've been doing Uber only for 8 months and noticed decrease in trips, sometimes over an hour for next.

I'd rather stay profitable than "busy." If waiting 10 minutes for a $15 order means declining 3 $3 deliveries, it's time well spent.For me it's all about 1) staying busy 2) maximize earnings.
1 and 2 sometimes just go together. But there are times 1 app is running bonuses over the other. Or 1 is surging over the other. Or it's slow and you want anything!
Lyft also pays min $4.12. $1 more than uber on those short rides. But there are downsides to Lyft as well. Both apps have + and -. But in the end running both will help stay busy.
Where Uber/Lyft say it's busy all of a sudden 100s of drivers head to that area. Just like surges. If close snag the sticky surge, but don't chase the hot spots because every other driver is doing the same thing. Downtown not always a good. Certainly don't lurk there to long, you will get $4 to death.Ten mins? I started at six this morning, got one $4 trip for the whole hour! I'm downtown where Uber app says it's a busy area... what am I doing wrong? That's not profitable & not worth getting up early...
