    What do you do when waiting for a ping?

    Yap, that's what I do. Stretch and walk. I would actually try to walk towards busy spots like restaurants, coffee shops so the likelihood of me getting pinged would be higher (in theory at least), and look for a restroom while I am at it to unload as a preemptive measure. Normally after I've...

    Can SOMEONE *pretty please* spell out the new CA fares ((like I'm TWO?!?))

    You are absolutely right! They got me this time: $0.84/mi x 0.75 = $0.63/mi $0.36/min x 0.75 = $0.27/min Same rates as before!! Duh!

    No hard feelings, man! It seems these new rates started since Monday. I just don't know whether they will stick or not. That remains to be seen.

    First of all, it’s NOT fake screenshots! I took it straight from my app!! It’s engineers at Uber who screwed up! Secondly, I didn’t make up those numbers! I took them straight from the info card and did those simple calculations. They only don’t make sense to you, you nincompoop!!

    Actually there is rate increase! From the earning info card you provided: Fare due to distance = $18.62 @22.17 mi => rate = $0.84/mi Fare due to time = $12.75 @35.42 min => rate = $0.36/min These are higher than what we used to get before the new year. (edit: actually, make it before the last...

    Thanks! You've got the numbers right! However, I think you've arrived at the numbers out of sequence. Here's I think how Uber got the numbers: Fare before surge = $2.2 (base) + $27.65* (distance) + $13.46* (time) = $43.31 Fare after surge multiplier = $43.31 x 2.4 = $103.94 Driver's share (75%)...

    Can SOMEONE *pretty please* spell out the new CA fares ((like I'm TWO?!?))

    I noticed that in the new payment info card they don’t provide the amount the pax pays now. So how do they arrive at the number for “fare”? Is it the amount the pax paid minus the $2.7 booking fee? Next time when I have a chance, I will ask the pax at the end of the trip how much he/she pays...

    Found phone in my car ... Uber tells me ...

    Found a phone in the back seat of my car two days ago. Returned it yesterday. The guy tipped me $50. I don't also intend to claim the $15 Uber would have charged the guy for me returning the phone, since he has compensated me quite handsomely already. The only thing that concerns me a little...

    Restroom

    Not a bad idea. However I wonder if restaurants in SF that take UE orders offer parking. Never signed up for UE so not sure how people (esp. those in SF) manage to grab the order without a parking spot. Double park probably. Just do what Romans do when you are in Rome, I guess?

    Auto Decline App?

    You could simply let the request time out if you don’t accept it. You don’t even need to lift a finger. 1578765396 Agree. Long trip often means a long empty trip back. Or you have to use up one DF—whether you will get a ping is another story.

    Restroom

    The problem with places like downtown SF is not that I can’t find a place with restrooms. The problem is finding parking near the place you want to use the restroom. When I am ubering in downtown SF, I always try to do my “business” whenever I can find a place to park, even if I have to walk a...

    What does that “dancing” Go icon mean?

    Uh, surge info. That's something that interests me the most as a driver. You don't need to go online to see it and you won't get it on rider's app.

    OK, CA drivers: what's your first hand experience of the changes rolled in since yesterday?

    I saw this on my phone yesterday, though I was about to have my dinner (it’s also far away from me away). I guess I want to know if Uber caps its take at 25%, and whether the surge is sticky or not.

    OK, CA drivers: what's your first hand experience of the changes rolled in since yesterday?

    I am interested in first hand experience from those who got multiplier surge, and it shows that Uber's take is capped at 25%, be they long trip, or short trip. Show your screen captures if you have them.
