they took back the 6 DF's

I been getting some long trips lately.

but they're not what everybody thinks.

they aren't necessarily 30, 40, 50 mile rides.

I got a 11 mile ride request that said long trip 45 min+
because there was simply just heavy traffic.

today I got another one
upper darby to ambler.
was about 18 miles, but had heavy traffic... which took it to 48 minutes.

I'd love to get one of these long trips during a surge. I have the worst luck with that. I try to use the DF at bar closing but most of the time I end up getting a 1.5 mi trip towards the destination.

I was getting long trip requests left and right last week. Didn't get any and my car is @@@@ed up. This could be the end of rideshare for ol' Hans.

I got one today. I was DFing towards EWR to pick up a relative and got a "long trip" request in Lawrenceville. The rating was lower than I'd otherwise accept but since I knew with almost certainty that it was an EWR trip, I took it.

whatcha need buddy?
new set o' tires?
we can all bust balls on here but 1 thing all have in common if we must do a big # of rides to earn like quests ..we are always fixing or maintaining our cars...
been in car business most of my life..now all 3 cars are covered so i all do is pay for service...but it sucks when u make 80 rides a week and car goes bad.. or the 1 week you need a pay its icy and u cannot work..
And ted L ..u better watch with surge on what pass are rated..cause some drivers kill pax rating only for no tips..LT with 4.1 surging 2.5 they are riding in my xl 7 days a week
