    Is UBER finally on its way out!?!?

    I'm in Detroit. I have done this for over a year. The demand is a small fraction of what it used to be last year. It WAS "saturation" but now it's NO DEMAND and its slower then that. I would say it's about 1/3 of what the traffic was last year same time. If not even slower than that. I honestly...

    I quit and reported uber to the ftc

    I am done with uber specifically. Ubers upfront pricing is a bigger fraud then I originally though it was, the upfront pricing is a huge scam that effects the drivers more than we as drivers may be aware of. My last week I asked riders what they paid. Uber took 58% and that is NOT INCLUDING...

    Its all down hill from here

    I honestly believe it has been down hill since before I started, I was tricked into driving for $35 per hour But that was and is obviously a very bold lie. Uber has to be running out of new markets right? People only drive and use uber until they know better and the same goes for lyft. I notice...

    Detroit drivers are making $8.77 per hour

    Well... All I have to say is sadly that is pretty accurate. Any uberx drivers agree??? Were paid lower than any other city while our roads are the worst in the country.

    Why doesnt uber give choice to surge to the costomer?

    I just don't understand why uber forces people to pay more this way. Surging... Why wouldn't they give this option to the customer (rider). In detroit the rates are so low no drivers are ever happy on uberx, I would pay 2.0x just so that I would get a smile.
