I now turn off my uber app when in Sydney CBD and waste time and fuel driving straight out of there and refuse to pick up any riders there as it is too damn difficult to do without a centralised pick-up spot. It is high time the NSW government in conjunction with Uber organise a pick-up spot for rideshare services in the CBD of Sydney where riders can stand and request an Uber, and Uber drivers can safetly stop in that spot to pick them up, without the fear of being abused or rammed by other drivers, taxi drivers, buses etc. They organised it for Sydney Airport, so I can't see why the same cannot be done for the CBD of Sydney. Too many trip requests end up in the CBD, good luck trying to find a spot to wait to pick someone up on Castlereagh, Pitt or George Streets afterwards. This is also my first post on here. Been driving Uber full time in Sydney since leaving my crappy job in April.
