     11 months ago in  Is driving from 9-5 a pipedream for an Uber driver?

    Here's an advice.  To be a good rideshare driver, you have to be mindful of the demand of people's travel. At first, you have to do this consciously.  Check your local Amtrak schedules, look up local events, when and which restaurants are busy.  You have to do this while also gauging the *supply*, ie other drivers.  

    The good news is that you will quickly learn and go into a routine.  You will just naturally know, and it becomes a part of your shift.  

    Further advice: here are the hot times, at least wher eI am, and usually in urban areas:

    • 6:00AM to 10:00 - People going to airports or for work.
    • 12:00PM to 1:30PM - People going to lunch
    • 4:00PM to 7:00PM - People going home and to dinnesr, etc.
    • 10:00PM to 2:30PM - People going home from bars (especially weekends - infinite demand)
    • Plus any other times when there are local events

    Keep track of your hot and popular times!

    Good luck!

     9 months ago in  New UBER APP Features

    Wait, I got it. To see the Uber acceptance rate and cancellations, you have to log into the web dashboard, it will display the metrics there. (https://partners.uber.com/login/)

    This brings up a question whether Uber actually cares about these metrics anymore.  They obviously track it (as you can see it in web), but the fact that they have hidden it from app makes me think they don't care anymore.

    There was a court dealing on this where Uber cannot deactivate the drivers for low acceptance rates.  We are independent contractors and do not have to take rides we do not want to.

    I justed posted this elsewhere, but since this is the same question, I will re-post.

    It looks like you can no longer see the acceptance rates and cancellations in the new Uber mobile app.  To see the those Uber acceptance rate and cancellations, you have to log into the web dashboard, it will display the metrics there. (https://partners.uber.com/login/)
