    Some drivers may accept cash. Chances of  finding a driver on the day anf time you need one may not be easy unless you know of a place where a few drivers may sit. I have people approach me asking to drive them for cash but decline them for obvious reasons. Yes I pick up strangers all the time but Uber knows where I am and has info on the rider.

You can try putting your general location on here to see if anyone will get back to you. If you find someone you may want to ask if they are willing to give their phone number so you can call if you need more rides.

    No, the system is not set up for cash and therefore if any driver agrees to do so, you're at extreme risk of being uninsured in the event of an accident.  I would definitely recommend against doing that unless the driver has commercial insurance.

    Yeah, in some cities Uber accepts cash. The app gives you "cash" as a payment option, and the driver is instructed to accept cash at the end of the trip. Uber's portion of the fare will be automatically deducted from the driver's pay.
