As  a NJ Uber driver what do I have to do to be able to operate in Pennsylvania especially after I make countless trips from NJ to Philly airport?? Also, when it comes to Uber airport promotions what can we drivers from South Jersey do to be included in the Philly airport promotions and not have to drive 2 hours North to Newark to reap the benifits of an airport promotion??

    I live in Philly but drive mostly in NJ. I've never was offered an airport promotion nor do I know any other drivers from Philly or NJ that are offered airport promotions. Are you a new driver? How long have you been driving? I drive to Philly, Newark, JFK, and LaGurdia. Not to find of the NY airports  As a NJ driver you can drop off & pick up in NJ, PA, and DE. You can drop off in NY just cant pick up. Other than knowing the normal laws you do not have to do anything to drive in these states. Make sure you read Uber TOS for airoirt rides that you pickup and drop off. No special inspection in Philly. We get our car inspected once per year but that for everyones car just like NJ gets their cars inspected every 2yrs.  If you have any other questions I will be happy to try and answer them:) I have been driving for 2 yrs mostly Uber (2200+) & Lyft (200+) trips.

    I’m not Philly so I can’t say it with confidence but I think I read on this forum that people register for Philly as a driver which allows you to cover South Jersey. 

    Philly has some weird requirements though. Like getting special inspections every year. 


    I guess NYC isn’t much better wit the TLC.

      Here in PA every resident who owns a car needs to get it inspected. It's not a weird rideshare thing:)  An emissions sticker and the inspection sticker every 12 mths. Emissions self explanatory, Inspection sticker certifies our brakes and tires are good, lights work, windshield isnt cracked, check engine light isnt on, registration is current, you have car insurance, car is safe to drive. NJ is similar but theirs is done every 2 yrs or older cars and 5 yrs on newer cars. This isnt being asked sarcastically but whats weird about an inspection? Doesn't every state have to get their cars inspected? If not guess it would be weird to you.🙂
