    I am not getting any pings in the morning for LAX runs?

    Did lyft for a bit and all they were LAX runs early hours.

    Been signed up for awhile tho only logged maybe 150 rides to date.
    I took the quiz already etc... but no permit in mail nor any luck calling. When calling they say go to green light but the Westwood office is no longer here.

    What's best way to get the LAX permit?

    Thanks.

    In a sea of red 2x to 3x morning times but never a LAX ride. I assume uber knows I do not have permit hence don't get those requests?

    You take the quiz online. They will send you the permit by mail.
    If not received, message Uber about it, they will give you an answer.
    After you receive the permit, if you still don't get a ping at LAX for more than 1 hour, call Uber CS, they will check if you are activated or not.
    P.S. make sure to put trade dresses front and rear at all times in LAX

    Thank you for reply.
    I tried calling support today again, they said go to green light to get one.

    My question is do they print one out for you there as I don't want to drive there if they don't do it?

    Called again and they said they will research, but I'm not holding my breathe on the call center doing it...lol

    As for pings... being that I've driven 4am to 7am on on a Monday and Friday morning in WeHo, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Westwood area without a request with destination as LAX , I could only assume it's because im not activated to to drop off there?
    For example 5am to 6am in Beverly Hills area on a Monday when it was surging no less than 3x I did not get a request for an hour. That seems crazy, right?

    All you need is legit permit.
    Fuber is being extremely lazy lately.
    Uber can adjust your configuration of an account in 2 mins!
    I called two days ago to reactivate my LAX airport runs. The rep asked if I have permit and changed my configuration in 5 mins.
    If you pass the LAX quiz, the system notifies the rep to configure your account to activate LAX.
    Fuber is just being lazy and ahole. They are not notified yet of your lax quiz qualifications. Just being cautious of your account since you are new. They have nothing to say except research.

    Only have 38 rated rides....
    35 (5 star)
    2 (4 star)
    1 (1 star) who by the way, made me wait 5 to 10 minutes before going on a 4 block ride @2am in WeHo surging at 2x.
    I wanted to kick the dude in the face the second he opened his mouth getting in the car! New it was gonna be trouble. Should have canceled.
