Does anyone make money on Friday and Saturday nights? I see tons of vehicles on the road and I did not get a single ping. During the week I had a lot of luck but last night sucked just a little. Maybe someone can suggest some places to hang that might be good on a Saturday night.

Thanks for any help offered.
 
When I checked the rider app past cpl weeks, it doesn't say where the MGM pickup is. For a month it was saying E. Valet but now it doesn't. Anyone been picking up at MGM past cpl weeks? A pax told me during the conventions last week that he hadn't been experiencing any problems hopping into a car from the main entrance.

As long as you don't stay too long main works for me. Just be nice to security or the Valets if they ask you to move.

It is located in the PARKING GARAGE section 2M... It felt like the back alley way in one of those big cities like Chicago/New York where crack heads and rapist often hang out when I staged at that area (I have never staged there since) so not a lot of pax would go through the tunnel walk 200-300 yards waste 20-40mins of their time...

If door people/hotels doesn't make any money from uber/lyft we are going to be that rescued pet nobody wants to adopt and we surely are inline for euthanization...

If they come up with a device by the hotel door area with a big touch screen to press that connects to the pax phone via text or bluetooth that hails a TNC ride at the staging area, then we could drive up at the front lobby one at a time to prevent clutter. Towards the end of the day/week/month uber pays the hotel $1/$2 per vehicle and have that surcharge charged to the pax fare, I'm sure pax would not care as it is still better cheaper than a taxi.

Uber customers have a maximum walking speed of ten yards per minute?
Have you tried going the wrong way? Ya casino signs are clearly lit, they use big letters, well placed and lit up isle for people to follow... +old or child walking with them...

Trop & Audrie hardly exists. It is a driveway onto the property. Nowhere to stop there at all. Do we mean Audrie and MGM Ave? The street that is by the events center? Under the bridge?

The sign POST is still at the E.Valet, but the SIGN itself is destroyed (by wind and whatnot, or by purpose). I personally reset that sign about three times from having fallen over and being bent up and stuff last week.

UNTIL the pax are properly DIRECTED by signage or personnel at MGM to the CORRECT PU spot, it is going to continue to be a cluster muck there. Their own rules are thrown out the window if they are still letting us PU at main entrance. It gives them enormous ARBITRARY POWER if sometimes you can PU at main and sometimes you can't. Perfect intermittent reinforcement will only create additional CHAOS.

It's the South Side Valet.

I agree that these properties are making it difficult, between not informing pax where to be picked up, and changing their pu locations. Even if we as drivers know exactly where to go, the real issue is directing the riders. Being a tourist city, it's not like passengers will eventually learn - every week our rider pool is brand new.
