I've been driving for uber in BR. The drivers do not have to pay for the phone or service, as far as I know. In fact, when the market manager gave us the phone, he said that to keep our account active, we needed a minimum of one fare a month, as they are paying the data rates to keep the phone activ...
| Money Talk|| re: American Express Personal Savings - TigerRob20 on 7/21/14 at 9:02 am|
I use the Amex Personal Savings, and have been happy with it. Every 6 months, they drop the rate a little bit, so you can expect that.
Maybe possibly look into opening a Roth IRA for the money? I was thinking about doing that for cash that I don't need for backup savings.
| O-T Lounge|| re: Has Uber temporarily shut down? No, Uber is the best thing in BR! - TigerRob20 on 7/18/14 at 1:30 pm|
The $5 per ride is what the rider pays. The driver still gets what the normal cost of the ride would be. So if the ride would normally be $10, the driver gets $8. I am not sure what the payments are yet, since I haven't been working long enough to get paid.
Once the promo is over, you will be ab...

I'd imagine there isn't a lot yet. But once there are a bunch of drivers, you will see more demand. Once people realize that they can get an Uber to lunch or a business meeting, and possibly w...

Yes that is the case. And if you reject too many rides, it will drop your rating. All drivers must keep their rating above 4.5

| O-T Lounge|| re: Government Street revamp taking shape - TigerRob20 on 7/14/14 at 10:10 am|
I don't think there is anyway it would ever be extended to Jefferson Place. That has been a one entry subdivision since the 1950s. Too many rich people in there to keep it from happening.
Exactly one of the reasons why we have so many problems in this city.

Pretty sure Uber was supposed to be turned on in BTR on the 10th. Check it out and see if it is up and running.

That Beocord is pretty slick. I like the auto search feature for the songs, if that is what that is.
My first iPod was probably my favorite piece of tech. Being able to bring all my music everywhere, instead of a huge CD case, was amazing.
| O-T Lounge|| re: How is Uptown New Orleans as a biking area? - TigerRob20 on 7/8/14 at 10:16 am|
Good thing about NOLA is the block system. If there is an area that is too busy, cut over a block. You can pretty much get around the entire city on a bike thanks to that. Just be careful on the busy streets as other posters have said.
Conceivably, you could start at Audubon Park and ride all th...

If you have never been, take the river tour. You can do a lot of walking around the downtown area that isn't by the river walk. The Alamo is close, about an easy 5-10 min walk.
