    I just started this past weekend and made about $70. I was not sure where to go to get riders so I went to busy areas like malls and concerts. Any other general suggestions on where to go? I live in Fuquay and I don't see anyone using Uber here. I am doing this for extra money on weekends.

    Also, when do we get paid? is it weekly? Thanks all for your input:)

    I agree @Milady de Winter, it looks like great town.
    @UberGal72 are you staying local or venturing into Raleigh?

    Get yourself some referal cards with your referal code on them and distribute them around your local area perhaps.

    With the drunk crowds, if you can stop a small distance away from the pax and make them walk to you. If you don't like what you see drive off and cancel.

    Also keep the doors locked until the pax is identified, and dont accept more pax than you have seatbelts for.

    Please keep us posted with your progress and any questions you have.

    Also please post a tune on our music to uber to in off topic. Soon we will have a thread of things we see on the road, which we hope members will post what we see in our communities etc.
