Good afternoon house
Have been considering this Uber/Taxify stuff
But the issue I have is m nt conversant with lagos very well esp Island.... Main land I stil fit try.... Naw back to where I need help

How does one know one way
This tin plenty for yaba.... Tho I dunno particular area it is dere
And on the island part I don't know anywhere

What does u people suggest?

How do you cope with VIO.... Lasma.... FRSC and other govt. Agencies?

1.start by using Google maps. You cud Google the use of Google maps. Wen to know if you hv missed d road, one way n stuffs like dat.

Ask the riders respectfully for help, some are willing and will direct you to their destination.

2. For now. DON'T CHASE target . You are on a learning curve.

3. Start early (6am) if you r chanced 5.45am. (by 6am you should b set) and close early 5pm, Ensure your papers r complete, n you won't hv issues wt vio n road safety.

4.Avoid kabu kabu for now. Don't be tempted ...₦100-₦150 fares cud get you into trouble.


5.Always be on the alert, if you r approaching any junction, don't accelerate, drive wt a uniform speed, watch out for No you turn, one way signposts some are obscure

6. Don't park on major roads and streets.... If you notice, a road is very free ( e. g Alexander road, Gerrard road, Isaac John, Ikeja GRA) with areas where you can park. It ain't free for nothing, grin, it means dey tow cars there..... Not even to rest briefly... Find inner streets n Park.

7. Don't rely fully on the Gmap. Some areas are not updated on the map. Observe how cars r moving esp Keke n danfos, they know d local terrain better.

8. Lastly, Before going out, Say a word of prayer, to divinity for guidance.

Goodluck..

Iyana ipaja is still the best choice though.

You cud easily get ikeja back from dere.

I hate going there, haven't been there in months, I'm currently at badore.

After I cancelled the iyana ipaja trip, I got badore. I filter my trips wella wink

I'm looking at buying things like AC, washing machine, plus some electrical stuff but someone just advised I go to mile2 that I'll get them cheap there as well since they offload overthere.

My question now is do you think it will better off buying from online or I should just buy from warf?

Urgent reply pls.

Wharf would be better

I just checked my plate number on Road Safety website for verification and it came out Verification Failed. I hope this won't affect me on Uber/Bolt verification? Do they check the documents through Road Safety Verification?

When I started newly (1st week), I got a request in ikeja. Called rider.

Rider: I'm going to Agege stadium side.
Me: I don't know where Agege stadium is. This's my 1st week.
Rider: don't worry I'll direct you.

Got a request to yaba from ikeja.
On our way, rider asked if I'm taking 3rm mainland.
Me: I don't know where 3rm mainland is. I don't know anywhere. This's my 1st week.
Rider: I'll direct you.

Got a request from ikeja to Ogba.
Riser: follow Adeniyi Jones.
Me: I don't know where it is. This's my 1st week.
Rider: I'll direct you.

No knowledge of Lagos road is not a big deal bro.
Just 2weeks, with the help of riders, you're good to go.

Just know how to use G-map wella. That's where problem fit dey.

Wow
Learning from this
I even sabi mainland small
Na Island I no too sabi
Thank u

All well said...

In addition when you receive a request...ensure u are well parked with your harzard light turned on...if you are trying to call the rider

As well, always remind your riders to use their face mask....

It's not necessarily Wharf you should go to.

There's a place called Westminster... it's before Coconut busstop..But I don't know if it's still as before..Besides, containers and tankers don cover everywhere

My advise? Go to Ijesha bus stop. Just after it is a bus stop called Warehouse.. You'll see them offloading all these items from Containers...

I seriously doubt if we will ever go back to those days of 30k weekly again self.

It will take the world many years to recover from the effects of covid 19.


Once church have start, on August 7 abi 14, car rental will go back to 30/35k drivers.

Are you sure about this sir? When last did you visit Okun-Ajah area? It might interest you to know that for two sundays back to back now I’ve always gone to position there for surge trips to end my day. Last Sunday I took some guys to Santa Cruz beach around 7pm from Falomo, I quickly set destination to my house after dropping them and got a 2.5 surge trip straight to my estate.

The whole place was full to the brim.. with traffic, if you no hold your car well or carry overload you go sink for the sand

These guys have been operating, forget what the government is saying.
