I am a part time Uber driver newly in the myrtle beach sc area. I would like to know the rider demand and 'patterns' if you will. Other than on the app when I am logged in. Is there a way to see a mapped area and/or past statics?

I starting my Uber'ing while residing in Wilmington NC and 80% of the time it was steady and lucrative.  I have not found that to be the case here in Myrtle Beach SC

    Have you tried using the heat map feature in the partner app? When you turn your app on, you will see a heat map with different areas of your city shaded either yellow, orange, or red. These areas show you at a high level the demand for rides in different locations around your city. When I started driving I would just constantly monitor the heat map to determine the best times and places to drive.

    I would think Myrtle Beach would be one of those places were you get heavy ridership in the summer and then barely nothing in the Winter. I wonder if it makes sense to do another job for the winter months or maybe delivery?
