Changed my strategy up a bit again after the airport became legal and unprofitable. Think I found something solid. My advice is quality over quantity. Right place at the right time and a little bit of luck.
Good job! I'm curious how do u get your fare/hour so high...I'm assuming you work surges...but do you drive back to surge area when a ride takes you out? And do you only accept rides at surge pricing? I found it hard to get surge rates...even when sitting in the middle of a surge...no pings...and then as soon as surge disappeared I'd get pinged.Changed my strategy up a bit again after the airport became legal and unprofitable.

I agree...I wouldn't give it for free either...but I do appreciate seeing your stats...at least I know it's possible and there is a lot of info out there if you're willing to sift through and understand it. I think it's good to just to get out there and drive and come back and read because it makes more sense after the fact...I love your tip about developing a plan and sticking to it...it's tempting to go off track and take every ping out of fear there won't be another one...it is kind of like what someone told me about poker...be prepared to lose 1,000 bucks learning how to playI agree UberXking that is why I give vague info. Took me a lot of hours and nights out there to figure it out. Also it's like poker if I gave my strategy out there it would no longer work for me and I would have to come up with something else again. I have given out a lot of info in this post to get you started in the right direction though Deeder. UberXking is the guy with something way more solid than me. I can only keep it 35$ + for 14-16 hours tops until i see a huge drop off. I simply work high demand time and know my spots. I have a good idea where people are headed at certain spots at what times. It doesn't always work out, like last weekend where my two big rides ended up being busts. But that's the way it goes. Uber is like everything else in life feast or famine... when it rains it pours.
