  1. Uber launched in the Rocket City on March 4th 2016. Anyone care to share their experiences?
     
  2. Hi! I just became active yesterday. I'll start driving Tuesday once I get a few things squared away. How has it been for you? What's the demand like so far?
     
  3. Daytime market is slow. Weekends have been fairly good especially late at night around downtown. What will you be driving in? If you have a vehicle that would qualify for XL and can carry more than 4 people I suspect you could do pretty good for the bar crowd leaving at night.
     
  4. I drive a Scion XD.

    Been driving people around a couple of weeks out here now I'm prompted to get a safety inspection. The website says to go to Meineke but there isn't one here, and the one in Florence has no clue. What have you guys been doing for your safety inspection?

    I just printed out the form and took it to express oil change and tipped the guy $20 to fill it out and sign it.

    Are you guys keeping up with expenses and mileage to be tax deductible? Just curious if it's even able to be. #NotAtaxMan ha

    YES keep up with your receipts! You definately want all of those deductions at the end of the year also probably a good idea to put a percent of your earnings back in a savings account for tax season.

    Has anyone gotten the uber welcome package? Are they still doing that or do we have to purchase our own Uber decal? I haven't found any articles saying that they stopped it.

    So, I am getting started...trying to get everything ready. I downloaded Zello, but have no idea what I am doing. But I need to connect with you all so I can do this right.
