Ride Share Fleet

Given the recent rate cuts by Uber and other ridershare companies this post might be comforting to some ridershare partners and Uber drivers out there. Some ridershare partners are still killing it. Here is some inspiration.

When a driver signed up, Uber gave them some good beginner tips about how to launch a successful business. Through our experience networking with drivers worldwide, we learned industry secrets that explain how the Uber driver scores work and how to ensure their ratings remains high (getting the driver more opportunities for rides and putting more money in your pocket!)

Greg makes an average of $675,000 per year leveraging his gig as an Uber driver while only working about 12 hours a week on the platform. Our UberX Driverís Kit (which you can download from our website (Uberkit.net) and use as a guide.

Read the full Q and A on our blog to find out how he has been able to make such an impressive amount; receive some tips and important information for Uber drivers; and some general thoughts he has about the Uber platform and how the Company can improve its service.

There are many methods available on how to find the highest fares as a rideshare partner or driver and also increase your revenue. Each one has a different focus, though they are all intertwined. You need to know your local market hot spots. Ride Share Fleet

I can’t tell you how many of these I’ve reported, yet they never get removed.
I think the “mods” have taken a hands off approach.

I would suggest they're taking a "hands-on": approach, if you get my gist. Pun intended.

Oh. Hell no. Not in California. ****************ing demorats would be certain to tax every last dime. Based upon the OP (opressive pussy) post, you'd be lucky to walk away with $67 a week after deductions for all the entitlement programs.

Yet California is the 5th largest economy in the world, surpassing the UK. The biggest in the USA for sure.

They carry the load for all the red states when it comes to federal funding. So instead of ********************ing about the California Democrats, why not demand that the red states pull their weight so to alleviate the deficit hole that Rumpy sank us into?

I was in part being facetious, Man. However...

Pull their weight? **************** that. I'm scouting red states for a relocation. I can't forever support everybody and their ****************ing babies, entitlement programs, and plethora handout socialist programs. I'm getting old. What if my car needs a repair or parts?

I'm guessing you are being facetious again but I'll bite. I'm getting old as well but I would be more concerned about repairs and parts to my own body at this juncture rather than my car. But then again I live is a 'socialist' country where health care is a right not a privilege for the rich so I do have money for repairs and parts for my cars.

Canada's entire population is roughly that of California and our taxes are likely very much higher but over the course of my 65 years I have learned to appreciate what we have up here in the Great White North more and more.

There I'm stepping off my soap box. Sorry for hijacking this thread.

Wow, talk about thread drift...

Starter, you sound so angry and bitter. No one wants you to feel that way!

You guys! Yes, I'm messing with you.

Wherever you go, there you are. Red. Blue. It's a wash.

Anyhow... angry? Nah. Cynic? Uh. Sarcastic. Uh.

Sometimes threads get hijacked and if I see a name or two I recognize, I'll play with it a bit. A few here know I'm just having a little fun. I work from a home office, self-employed, the dogs and bird don't talk. The fish? Meh. So the 986 forum I find is an awesome community of acquaintances... each with their own personality (or, that which they reveal upon these pages)... each populating their own little corner of the world, and with differing backgrounds. We've an interesting bunch, all cool. I digress.

Paulofto. My mom was born and raised in Newfoundland. Got Screech?

My little hijack, over.

Come over to the "sanctuary city" of Pittsburgh. Cost of living is way low, and I'll show you around!

I wish I did, along with some cod cheeks and scrunchions, so we could have a kitchen party and get screeched in!

Ya know, I see this repeated a lot. It means exactly jack squat.

A large economy? Yes. The state has a lot of people (yet another reason to avoid it).
Of course it has a large economy.

Successful?
At some $370,000,000,000 in debt, I think not.

Good hell..... how'd this thread get from A to 13?

FWIW, I lived in Canada for 8 years and France for 3 years, and I've had more than enough socialized health care to suffice, thank you very much. Any more of it and I'd probably have never made it out alive.

Suck the competition out of anything (by handing control to the Gov't) and all that's left is the suck.

You just made it 14

Who was talking about healthcare?

So while we're now on the subject, I am a cancer survivor. So I have a pre-existing condition and can be denied ANY type of healthcare if the ACA (Obamacare) gets repealed. Since you have experienced the healthcare system in Canada and France, perhaps (and I hope not) you have a pre-existing condition too. Talk about not making it out alive.

If that's your only measure for success, than you admit your boy Rump is a colossal failure.

Candidly; were you ever denied any type of healthcare BEFORE obamacare? Truthfully. I was not. Never. But don't mistake my comments to mean that I think Obamacare is entirely a bad thing: I don't. It's not perfect, but neither was the system perfect before.

Oh, and -several- posts below were about healthcare.

I was diagnosed in 2013. I did not have a pre-existing condition before then. But I did visit the ER decades ago when I suffered an small injury playing soccer. I did not have insurance and I was not denied, but it took me forever to pay off the bill. I shutter to think where I'd be if I did not have insurance when I had my operation and subsequent therapy treatments. If we lose Obamacare I risk losing my coverage. And Yes, I agree it's not perfect. Let's work to improve it, not repeal it.
For me, it's far better than what we had before.

And I stand corrected, healthcare was indeed mentioned in a previous post.

As is usually the case when reasonable people discuss in a reasonable format, we find we are not as far off as the media (or the fringe, to whom politics is most important) would have us think. It seems evident that you and I want the same thing, Piper. Where we may find disagreement is in the best way to achieve it. But if we start from an agreement that we both want quality healthcare accessible to ALL, then we can continue to discuss reasonably. It's when the hyperbole starts that the hate takes over. When the republicans call all democrats socialists who want to shred the constitution, or the democrats call all republicans mean rich white guys who don't care about minorities or children, well then we've descended to right where the media would have us; 'cuz that's what fuels their ratings.

I'm glad you weren't denied service. I'm not sure that I think it's a bad thing that you were required to pay for those services. Sometimes it's the consequences of our actions which motivate us to think twice, or to be more cautious. That can include the monetary impact to our lifestyle. haha. But clearly there's a difference between that and a genetic disposition to certain ailments or diseases.

I tend to lean towards positions of individual-responsibility, rather than community responsibility.
I don't think it's fair for me to ask you to pay for my healthcare, when I'm the one who crashed motorcycles for 30 years. I'm also the guy who enjoys a bowl of ice cream at 9pm, and sometimes eat cold cereal for dinner. I'm 40lbs overweight, and drink diet dr. pepper like it's gonna disappear next week. Should you be responsible for my healthcare when I contract type 2 diabetes in 3 years?
On the other hand: I have some neighbors who have a disease which is degenerative in nature. I can never remember what it's called, but it looks like extreme parkinson's. At 52 yrs old, my neighbor looks 90. He uses his walker in the fields when he's feeding the cows. I watched him one day trying to step across the gutter with his garbage can. It's heartbreaking. I try to be generous towards him, with both my time and my money (when that's helpful). I take care of his home and his lawn. I help him with his cars. I plant flowers at his mom's house for him. Don't pat me on the back, I'm making the point that the government needn't compel me to help those who can't help themselves. I can do that on my own. And I can do it in a way that ensures my resources are being used efficiently, and wisely to help those who CAN'T, not those who WON'T (and yes, there are plenty of those).

I've never been into a hospital in a "socialized healthcare" environment that didn't smell of urine, and the air tasted like staff infection. it's a disaster. Sure, it's nice I don't have to even so much as show ID (don't get me started on how many people we'd have coming across our borders to use the free healthcare system), but it'd be nicer if the doctor cared if I received quality treatment or not. "take these for a week, and let's see what happens" is the first line of treatment for anything that ails you.

EDIT: OH, and I agree, let's not simply repeal obamacare and leave a void in its place. But let's also not just expand Obamacare as if it's perfect, lacking only universal acceptance. Both of those scenarios are simply politicals looking for a "win". Let's work on something better, that actually fixes some of the problems with the insurance industry. Let's find a way for everyone to access healthcare, and have choices that (through market pressure) force providers to be competitive in both quality and price. If we can put a man on the moon, surely we can solve this simple problem.
