    In the Lower Bucks area, I've been online for an hour on BOTH apps and haven't gotten a single ping. I may on a rare occasion have to wait maybe 15 mins, but this is crazy! I'd almost question system issues except that wouldn't make sense on both

    Look at how many ants there are on the rider app for both. There's your answer.

    Lots of xmas ants in lower bucks. It looks like center city with 10% of the population and 1% of the demand.

    I been working this area for over 2 years and it has never been anywhere near as slow as it has been since thanksgiving.

    This ia awesome!! What did you think would happen when the cut yr is now 15yrs for a car?
    All you guys still using your 2010 or newer cars are idiots. Im looking for a $2500 2004 minivan lol. Im going to rip out the carpets and put rubber floors and weather tech floor mats. I will look for the drunkest paxes i can find from now on. I could care less if they write all over the seats in a 04. I will hit every bump and pothole and hope they puke :) seriously though get the cheapest car you can now.

    My New Years resolution is to buy a $1000 car for uber. The smaller and ****tier the better. Roll up windows a plus.

    Lets have a contest who can have the crappiest uber car lmao but it has to pass inspection legally.

    2004 is the cutoff.

    I found a good one the other day but I don't have $1000 right now. It was an 05 aveo I saw online. I posted a pic of it in another thread. Car was too nice to win the contest, but man was that thing tiny. Has room for 2 adults up front and 2 "little people" and maybe a small dog in the back.

    BTW, loooove the tap water idea.****ing hysterical, lol!!!

    i got that wav van. full rubber floors mats and the seats better protection than a taxi..factory seat covers i bet $300 for a complete set,
    i am with you guys on buying older cars. makes perfect sense. my lease has not been paid for me since day.one.
    the benfit of what OGT says...as my rides so hard with conversion....is that you want major pukers on bad days . as this setup is so easy to clean....
    i say this but not really wanting it cause in all my rides carreer maybe inside car 5 pukers max..3 on outside....but older car is way to go..if i give wav back. i will get nice old 1 owner low mileage cheap van
