    Didn't start driving, but it seems very quite. No surges even in downtown. Just a bit of yellow zones.

    I think this has been the quietest day since I started driving full time, a month ago...

  4. Well, makes sense to me.

    Isn't everybody gone out of town for a long weekend as usual? Even people that actually live out of town (like in Richmond hill) in huge detached houses with huge backyards still rush out of town every time they get a chance. This seems to be some kind of a weird tradition for Toronto.

    It was definitely slower than I'm used to on a Saturday, but I haven't been out in over a month. I drove from 9pm until 1am. No surges, and lots of short rides, with less than 7 minutes between pings. Total was 11 rides for a gross of ~$100. Works out to about $67 after SRF and commissions. Not terrible for 4 hours, but hardly worth it driving my Q5. The only reason I was out was because Uber offered me a $50 incentive to complete 10 rides before Sept. 10. I won't be back out until I get another incentive :)

    Uber offered me their $30.00per hour guarantee last night so I milked it for what it's worth 9pm-3am :)

    Hmm.. I wonder how Uber chooses partners for guarantees and incentives. Was never offered either, yet I've been driving full time for a month.

    High star rating/newb ('feeding'), nicer car than average?

    If you've been driving full time for the past month, you're likely not going to be offered any incentives. It's called an 'incentive' for a reason :)

    Hahaa :) You're right. What about the guarantee? My rating is currently 4.85, I thought this wasn't so bad...

    i got offered, my rating is 4.67 after 750 rides. i usually drive 6 to 7 hours per day.
     
  16. Last night (Labour Day early morning) was quite busy for me. I assumed that since today was a public holiday, the Drinker's Brigade would be out in force downtown. I was right!

    Guess, it's better than nothing

    9/5/15 Sat 9pm-3am $30.00/hr - you were online 4.43 hours, which entitles you to a minimum of $132.90 in gross fares. Since you only made $103.10 (gross), we added $23.84 (net) to your payment statement.

    Were you offline for 1.57 hours, or did you just round off the start/finish times? I'm still waiting to hear about my incentive payment ($50) for clearing my 10 rides on Saturday.

    Saturday was real quiet downtown. I scrubbed the operation by 9 as I was sitting 15 mins no ping in the core.

  20. Hi I drive in Barrie too.
    I stayed online from 9pm to 1am Saturday evening but only two rides and another cancellation so no incentive !!
