    So I never go to the newark airport for pickups because I was afraid I might get a ticket. But that all changes few weeks ago when I started getting email from Uber about a deal struck with the city of newark. Anyways I got a ticket for (operating limo without proper registration) yesterday at terminal C arrivals. I tried telling the cop we have a deal with newark and the dude said he doesn't care about that, he said he's enforcing state law. What is going on here? I thought it's safe to do pickups at the airport now?? Still waiting on Uber response to my ticket. I surely don't have money to pay the fine. Also I am now confused about going back to EWR. I mean how many fines are Uber willing to pay for?

    Riders keep asking me if EWR is legal now and I keep telling them what I said when Newark signed a deal with Uber: Port Authority polices EWR and doesn't report to Newark, which means the deal means nothing to them.

    I do drop offs there, infrequently, but I've never even tried to pickup there, ever. I won't try it either until the Port Authority says that UberX is allowed (after changes in laws, etc. whatever). There are UberX drivers who are either unaware of the status of the laws, unaware of what Port Authority Police are enforcing, or completely aware and willing to take the risk of picking up at the airport. Riders can get a ride from them.

    Uberx is legal at Newark airport with ol limousine plate and Tlc. The deal at ewr has nothing to do with nj uberx which without commercial registration and insurance they will still ticket you.

    Sorry sorry to break this to you Xris, but you'll have to pony up the cash for the ticket. Only about 1400.00. Uber might reimburse you for it though.

    I thought uber said they will stop paying the fines and asking drivers to follow the law which is why they may not want to pay future fines.

    There was an email floating around here about that.
     
  7. It is illegal to do an Uber pick up even with TLC or OL plates at EWR. It is considered a "street hail" and you need a taxi permit to do that. You can drop off legally.

  8. Some of the posters here ****post their own opinions and theories about what Uber will do as fact. This was the case in regards to Uber's policy at Newark, reading between the lines a little too much.

    As far as I know, the policy for covering tickets has not changed. But no one has bothered to go to the office or ask support.

    Tlc is not recognized by the state of New Jersey. If cop ignores it that does not make it legal.

  10. Word to the wise: Just because uber says it ok, doesn't mean that it's always true. Uber is not above city/state ordinance.

    You will get reimbursed. But you will have to pay the ticket first in cash.

    Also, this will go in your nj driver history abstract.

    Those long fares can be great but not at .85 cents mile and stuck somewhere else dead heading back.

    Unless the PAPD issues a statement, I will continue to require the front seat at EWR

    You are right. But I guess the way I see it is that I will rather transport about 10 people a day instead of 20 for about the same amount of money. I mean sometimes you end up somewhere like Jersey city for example, where a 1.5 mile trip can go for almost 20 mins drive, not add the time it took you to get to the rider.

    How long have you been picking up there? I only lasted a week picking up people there. I am afraid to go back now mostly because they can impound your car too. I really don't wanna go through all that.

    I'm sure all the legal taxis that actually follow the law feel the same way.

    Haha good one. Uber can care less about the laws. They built an empire by breaking the law. Pretty sure nothing is changing on that front.
