Getting a ping is like pulling teeth tonight. Uber is manipulating something to keep you from making garauntee. Never seen nothing like this in in jeopardy of not making it. I don't trust uber.

Maybe cuz there's 5+ uber drivers per block in every shore town. This is absolutely ridiculous. I turned on my rider app and it's like a ant farm. True story. Don't take my word for it look for yourself.

Getting 1 ping per hour is not too easy. You have to really position yourself well and get lucky. Shit is bananas!

No offense but you suck if you can't get more than 1 trip per hour. Don't position yourself next to 5 other drivers if you want pings. Or better yet don't drive the shore it you don't know the area

Well I know the shore and there's a hell of a lot of drivers out here. And I'm staying away from the hot spots I'll make my guarantees .But even the dead spots have drivers cruising looking for hits gonna be a interesting summer

I got my rides in somehow. From 4-6 i had 0 pings in belmar and was starting to worry. Never seen so many uber cars before. Went to pt pleasant and got my 1st ride and was able to take it from there. I did more residential rides then bar rides.

I guess I suck, no offense taken. I actually completed 12 trips with 10 hours on line, so I made it. I'm guilty of manipulating my completed trip count though, I asked a Pax to give me 2 rides for 1, he agreed, in exchange I ended his second trip early and drove him free. I don't think I did anything wrong, Uber can,t prove anything, there's no rule saying you cant have the same Pax back to back trips. I didn't even need to do that, I ended up with 2 extra trips, but I was getting paranoid, time was running out and I was always one trip behind. I was desperate.
 
They will catch it if you request yourself and disqualify you for the period
hi uberbugs
so this's your strategie
stay home
if you did not recieve any request in 40 min open the rider app and request yourself
accept the trip and start the trip from your partner app
stay home and end the trip after 5 min
you will be charged $8 min fare but you still keep the $40
so $40-$8 uber fee - your $8 = $24
stay home and make $24 hourly

Screw Da shore.

Made 11 trips in 6.5 hours last night. Got 4 XL fares and I think that helped. Also stayed out towards 35 and GSP earlier in the night to catch people coming in to the beach. Moved closer to the beach as the night went on.
