    Cull the Ants

    Spot on Scottie! The big difference between Uber and taxis is that it cost money to put a cab on the road and it has to have bums on the seat to get that money back so the rules of supply and demand basically dictate how many taxis are on the road. But Uber don't have any of that nonsense so...

In all statistics there are highs and lows but the vast majority of the numbers will end up at a...

    FY18 results driving as a king ant

    Duderx, you are The Man! As I always say, the numbers don't lie. When I gave driving away I had many reasons but one was the fact that the net $/hr were slipping into a black hole because of the same two reasons you have, working only daylight hours and more dead kilometres than is smart. I...

    Any drivers local to the Macedon Ranges areas??

    When I was driving I did a lot of UberC work in those areas and I have a friend who does very well there right now. Distances a bit longer but mostly freeway or clear roads.

    Am I wrong or is calculating your gst now not possible

    Hyundai, I believe what you are saying here is not totally correct. Let's break it into two parts. The additional 2%/2.5% added to the Uber fee is simply a GST payment of 10% on 20% or 25% depending on your commission. So 20% becomes 22% and 25% becomes 27.5%. This additional amount was NOT...
