If you are at home and chilling out and you check your phone and see surge pricing on near your house or strip PLS don't even try to come out and try to earn some money....by the time you put on one of your shoe on the surge is over..... you may still see fake surge....our Vegas surge is now lasts only 2minues that is right ....2mins only .If you are not inviting to do the 50 trip $100 or 100 trips $250 I don't see how you are making money and paying your bills. Uber killed the surge pricing after drivers refused to staged at airport .Our surge used to last 12 minutes long uber reduced it to 2 minutes. I learned surge pricing last only 2 minutes long by turning on riders app. If you don't check riders app there's no way you can tell how long surge pricing will stay active. Uber does not want drivers to know how long surge pricing will stay active. LOL.

I sat in the middle of a surge area (3.2) for 10 minutes and not one ping. Thankfully, I got 2x all day yesterday in the strip area. Drove my husband's veh and got a bunch of XL's also. Surge is a scam.

Well, it was surging for cabs today, 357$ plus 12$ airport fee, plus taxes, I made 380$ for the company, my book after trip sheet was 348$. At 41.5 % I made 145$ for my check and 94 in tips, 3 of my passengers that paid with credit card put 0 on tip, but after unloading their luggage they gave me cash, 2 gave 5 each and the other one 3$. the money is out there, go get it , uber boys.

I was at the shop getting my car worked on near M & S.I turned on the driver app between 4pm and 530pm and I saw the surge pricing so I went ahead turned on....riders app I saw no surge for uber x. I saw Surge was on for XL & Select only and it was between 2.x 3 and 2x.7. It was active only for 2 minutes .

Noticed this happened at 5 am in Enterprise. Passenger app said no Uber x available and there really was not one car on the road. Not going over there at this time for min fare or surge that times out before you can even try. Typical Uber bs they really know how to make the system not work or be worth it now

I didn't know mother Theresa was still alive, so when this casinos charge more on busy days and on top of that, they add resort fees what are you going to do? Rent your house to help out tourists? Get a life please, or go to Walmart and buy a lot of waters and give them for free on the strip, lmao.

What do you mean by on line for 8 hours?
Let me explain..for example .if I picked pax from NY NY and drove them to red Rock Casino which would take me 25minutes and after i droped them off i have to come back to strip ...of course empty that would take me 25 minutes to come to my work area the strip. ...50 minutes.

I usually "drop and park".... Maybe 2 out of 10 I get those out of nowhere residential drop, then I drive back empty. If I do end up on any local Casino's, I give it a shot and fish for 20 minutes, then move. But as much as possible I avoid driving back to strip empty. And if I do drive back empty, app is on.

Why the hell would you drive back to the strip empty from RR. Duuuumb! Lol!!!! This is like the guy on the news driving around empty looking for fares in his suv complaining that Uber is not paying enough. Ffs seriously???if this is your strategy you might wanna rethink this one at least!! But yeah I get it. I think the online time does only count active rides. Or at least it's not super accurate. My milage tracking app car tracks is way more realistic.

I've ended up in Henderson a few times and always catch a fare out of there if you look for it sheesh. I bet some people go home after every ride and whatnot huh. Prolly go home to have coffee and bathroom too.this type of driver needs a Tesla man!! Won't even need the supercharger network downtown.

I can't stand locals. I don't want to deal with locals. From my experience locals don't tip also they want you to make stops here and there. Locals are jealous of drivers. Locals love to make up stuff and file complain to uber hoping their fare will be reduce for them and drivers get fired. Lol.locals hide small dogs in the bags and bring them in your car and claim it's service dog.i beat locals at their own games by reporting them to uber about the trips before locals make their lies and report me.uber believes whoever reports first is telling the truth. Lol.
