    2. Document Overview In this short document, I will quickly give you (the Uber Driver) a couple of Tips that will come in

    handy in driving smart, rather than hard, and ultimately help in maximizing your revenue!

    2.1 Know your Staging Points A staging point is essentially a stopping place or assembly point en route to a destination. It is

    the place you wait for your Uber customers/ riders. Knowing where to wait for fares will make

    the difference between picking up 1 customer per hour to maybe 5 per hour.

    Some common staging points are at hotels, restaurants and airports. In selecting staging points,

    it is important to observe customer behavior and keep a detailed log of rides picked up and at

    what points in the day. Also important is talking to other rideshare drivers. Over time it will be

    obvious when and where you need to respond to requests for Uber cars by customers.

    2.2 Know Uber Rates In order to maximize your income, it is also important to know the rates for different cities. For

    example the rates for Springfield IL and Saint Louis Missouri (which are about an hour away by

    car) are widely different (as at 01/30/2015). If you live in a border town, you might be able to

    take advantage of the more lucrative routes in the nearby city. For example

    City Base Rates Safe Rides Fee Min. Fare Cancellation Fee

    Springfield, IL $2 Base Fare +$0.20 per minute +$1.65 per mile

    $1 $5 $5

    Saint Louis, MO $7 Base Fare +$0.45 per minute +$3.55 per mile

    N/A $15 $10

    See the current rates for the cities mentioned above here:

    2.3 Ask Questions As previously mentioned it is important to ask a lot of questions. Talk to other Uber Drivers and

    also your clients (Uber customers) if they are willing to chat with you. (FYI dont push a

    discussion though if they are not particularly chatty or you might get dinged by the user when it

    comes time to get rated). The answers to these questions can help you refine and get the most

    optimal staging points for your Uber driving schedule.

    Some questions you can ask other drivers (and also yourself) are:

    a) Can you tell me where your good staging points are?

    b) Can you tell me what times to be at these staging points (follow up to the first question

    above)?

    c) Are there certain events I should pay attention to in the coming
