Scale for Rating Passenger

Published by grams777 in the blog grams777's blog.

The following is a hypothetical system for rating passengers. It may change from time to time and is not endorsed by any particular person or entity.

  • Do not close the rating screen until looking over the car properly even if it results in a lower acceptance rate.
  • For larger groups and other situations, may need to pull over somewhere to briefly get out and look.
  • Tips can only offset lower fare profitability. The ratings in the mandatory section can not be made higher by tipping.
  • Generally speaking:
    • 5 stars = you'd go out of your way for one of these rides.
    • 4 stars = you'd enjoy doing these rides if nearby.
    • 3 stars = don't want these rides.
    • 2 stars = really don't want these, could be trouble.
    • 1 star = definitely trouble, probably better if nobody took these rides.

Maximum 5 stars:
  • Fare $15 and over, regardless of tip.
  • Any fare with tip.

Maximum 4 stars:
  • Fare $8-15, no tip.

Maximum 3 stars:
  • Fare under $8 with no tip.

Subtractions from the above:
  • -1 for waiting more than 5 minutes or ping more than 10 minutes away (unless tip given).
  • -2 for waiting more than 10 minutes or ping more than 15 minutes away (unless tip given). Also may be better to avoid this case.
----------------

Mandatory ratings, regardless of fare or tip (try to avoid these rides to begin with if possible):
  • 2 stars = Asking / attempting to smoke or bring any open alcohol container.
  • 2 stars = Asking / attempting to carry more than 4 passengers.
  • 2 stars = Not giving proper destination, giving distracting turn by turn directions, or making unnecessary fuss over the route, pickup, or destination.
  • 1 star = leaving open alcohol container in vehicle after exiting.
  • 1 star = asking to speed, run lights, or other illegal acts.
  • 1-4 stars = abusive behavior, significant trash cleanup, damage to vehicle or other unsafe behaviors depending on severity.
-----------------

Optional Subtractions (for whatever reason, these can be unpleasant rides due to an excessive number of 3-4 star ratings of the driver from them):
  • -1 for transporting group sizes of 3 or more from one party/club/bar (or intoxicated) to another (even if tip given). Maximum 3 stars for the ride.
  • -1 for situations where the rating customer is not in the vehicle (even if tip given). Maximum 3 stars for the ride.
