    Thank you for all of your valuable knowledge!! I am currently refisu ok Delaware to drive for both Uber & Lyft. I know that Maryland has stricter rules for driving there. However, my coverage area approval for NJ is vague. I have received ride request while in New Jersey after completing PHL airport trips. However, I haven't been down the Jersey shore yet.   If I have already successfully received ride requests while in NJ is it my assumption that if I go to Wildwood, NJ or any other shore towns that I will be abld to receive requests.  But, everyone knows what happens when you assume!! 

    Can anyone clarify the Delaware drivers coverage area? Also, for Ocean City Maryland ride requests I need to have my region changed from Delaware to Eastern Maryland.  Am I able to open a new (2nd) Lyft or Uber account with a new email address but the same vehicle? In order to change regions? For example can I keep 1 Lyft Account for the Delaware, PHL airport, PA & NJ areas? Then have the 2nd account for the Eastern Maryland areas? 

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!!!!

    Damn regulations.  It used to be so cool before.  Just you and your app.  Just picking up passengers and working whenever and wherever.

    I used to read about those drivers who did cross-country trips from coast to coast, driving in each city they drove.  It's like the modern day hitchhiking.  No more.

      I thought Uber drivers were  independent contractors? Correct me if I am wrong but the last I checked, being an independent contractor meant they can not implement rules or monitor you?

    Uber and lyft are very new to our region.  We need some clarity on when certain cities don't approve uber in their city.  we have 2 in our region that want to vote separate from the biggest city in the region that already approved it and its up in and running for the most part in our county and neighboring counties. We are a ver big tourist and its not uncommon for someone to stay in  hotel in one city and uber and lyft to other destinations while on vaca.  Right now we are educating the community that we cannot pick up in the city limits only and in fact the uber and lyft service will tell the passenger "not available in that location".  We further explain that if they can request it and it allows them to then it is approved for that area?  Can you shed some light on this confusion or recommend how we handle it as drivers? ty

      Sounds like you already have your answer? Explaining that Uber drivers are only allowed to pick up in certain areas.
