There are Real über Pirates!

I was actually checking to see how this site is doing online and found, while searching on Google, that there are actual folks who rip off über drivers.

According to the online Urban Dictionary, “A passenger who steals or pirates services of an Uber or Lyft Driver by placing their destination close to original start point and then asks for the driver to drive them to different stops along the way,taking up time that wasn’t paid for.”

Another version of the über pirate is the driver who leaves the app to make money driving without über’s knowledge.

Extra Buck for Electric?

Uber drivers who use electric vehicles may be getting a raise under a new pilot project. The company launched a broad effort on Tuesday to get drivers to ditch their dirty, fossil fuel-burning vehicles in favor of cleaner, electric-powered ones — in part by offering them more money to make the switch.

Been a While

I haven’t gotten out to über at all of late. . . just a lot of stuff going on outside of über, making it difficult to get out!

Although this afternoon looks like I may finally get out and make some cash.

See you on the road!

Skunked!

Not every day is a good day to über.” — translated from the original Klingon

I spent a few hours in Newark yesterday around lunchtime and did not get one über-call. Besides not having a lot of the undergrads around, the only other activity was massive planning for UofD graduation ceremonies and new construction all over town. Newark will probably be an über dead zone ’til September, when the kids are back and the construction’s done.

I may have to head up 13 and into Wilmington proper to get fares.
