Pedestrian Uber Driver Picks Up Passenger

Yesterday I got out of my car to walk around the block and stretch my legs. While walking I got a ping and saw that the passenger was just down the block from where I was parked. I walked up to her and introduced myself, pointed out my car, and we both got in and I drove her to her destination. That was a first for both of us.

I did this several times in SF when the pax is clueless as to where my car is. It is easier then directing them on the phone sometimes. As long as I can see them and they are not too far away.

Last year, I pulled into a hotel so I could use their men's room. As I was exiting the lobby, I overheard two people talking about how there weren't any Ubers available. I turned my app back on, said "now there is." as I smiled and introduced myself. I was parked at the side of the hotel, so I escorted them there, and took them to the airport. $10 tip as a bonus too.

I was leaving a Tigers game a couple months ago and a couple of (drunk) damsels in distress were frustrated with their Uber being caught in traffic along the main street in front of the ballpark and delaying their return to a posh suburb of Detroit. I was parked in the garage straight in front of them...

I wasn't driving Lyft yet but had been studying these forums prior to signing up... if the same situation arises again, I'm looking forward to pulling that one off now.

Haha, I had to do that a couple weeks ago. I was at home and my street was getting paved that day. A neighbor across the street requested ride, so I just walked over to her, and we walked to my car together.
