heads up to everyone in the state. be in the area of new london and mohegan sun the rest of this weekend. Tons of rides for everyone. Even uber is giving a guarantee for this area.

i'm devoting the whole weekend to this area. don't be shy and say hi. i'll be traveling between the mohegan uber pickup spots and bank street in new london. since foxwoods doesn't support uber like mohegan, any riders i pick up i always tell them mohegan is the best

Anytime Uber tells you to work an area, run the other direction. Hope I'm wrong on this, but usually it's just a bunch of pissed off drivers giving each other the evil eye. I'll look at the map and decide from there.

I don't live far from this area, I hung out by the Casino yesterday, same traffic as usual, mostly workers going home...

The Barrett Jackson thing was sold out, lots of high rollers, the casino is pulling out all stops to make sure that they don't leave the casino.

The New London area is usually crowded with drivers on Friday & Saturday nights anyway, I agree with Crowboy, I'm headed elsewhere...

Evil eye, LOL. I just drive by with a big smile and wave

I live in the area and will play it by ear. Last Friday I got 1 ride for the whole night; but it was Old Saybrook to Manhattan. And got reimbursed for tolls I didn't have to pay to boot!

Friday night at Mohegan Sun sucked, I checked the riders app. at 8:00 pm and there were clusters of like 20 + drivers, checked again at 10:00 pm and it was down to like 8 so I went out (I only live 7 miles away) So from 10-12 I got 1 ping and it canceled right away, then nothing...I was about to call it a night and at 2:08 am I got a ping from MS sky entrance to Groton a $15.00 fare, they were pleasant and tipped me $5 so I made $20 not worth it...very disappointed (i could`nt even get 1 trip per hr) and now I get a text from UBER telling me tonight will be very busy from 7 pm thru out the night, I'm probable gonna just do my regular weekend routine...Norwich/New London bar runs and make my regular $60 in 2-2 1/2

A little 411...I live near by and I just drive in the Mohegan Sun area on weekends and it`s pretty good but for some reason this Barrett-Jackson is not impressing my wallet, but anyways your best bet is to park at Aroogas on Sandy desert rd and wait for pings so you don`t waste to much gas and it`s a good location..close to all the valets and employee drop off area (called "Eagle View") the only thing is when you get a call turn left out of the lot then right onto the MS/BLVD and hang a U turn at the end and both Valets (Sky+Summer) are accessible from there (the easiest and fastest/3 min) Well Good Luck Janice and see you out there...(I`ll be the one in the grey Chevy Impala)

I basically do MS calls, some times FW, but MS area is easier to navigate, FW is way confusing and screwed up, when you are in this area use the App called ZELLO (walky talky / CB for cell phones) a great way to communicate with other drivers for advice and hot spots, search for channel UBER NLC its really good and runs in the back ground so you can navigate with the UBER app and still listen on the ZELLO app. Theirs like 5 UBER channels in CT this one I created is basically for the New London County covering NL, Norwich, MS and FW areas.
