    Total trips completed?

    I remember there used to be a couple of ways to find this information (total number of trips completed) but I can't seem to find it anywhere, now. Do you guys know where I can find this? I'm just curious. I imagine I have over 6,000 at this point (It says I have 3,700 5-star trips so that's...

    Receiving ratings for no-shows...

    I am pretty sure that they are allowing customers to rate us after we no-show them and collect $5. I have noticed several times after I no-show a customer my rating will go down It will show that I had a trip rated because the number goes up but I obviously didn't give anyone a trip at that...

    How much are we really making?

    Uber states we can earn 75-80% of fares (at least in the San Francisco market). But, if you account for the booking fee it's technically a lot less than that. Basics for S.F market: Booking fee $1.55 So, we are earning far less than 75%. In fact, it's really close to impossible to earn 75% of...

    Why customer ratings are stupid...

    Let me start out by saying when I use Uber as a customer I am always polite, always have toes on the curb, I always have a drop off destination entered, AND, I always cash tip. I've taken 15 Uber's now, and my rating should EASILY be a 5.0, but I checked today and I am a 4.93 (14x 5 star) (1x...

    Not receiving e-mails?

    I've noticed that Uber's e-mails do not go to my gmail app (either via my mobile app or my desktop computer) at all. They don't get sent to Junk, Trash, Inbox, nothing. It's as if they were never sent to me. The Uber emails only show up on this app on my phone that is called: "Email" and has an...

    SJC AUDIT E-MAIL

    I just received an e-mail from Uber stating that I was randomly selected at SJC. Has anyone else gotten this e-mail? "[UBER] Hi, the SJC Airport Authority randomly chose your vehicle for an audit (based on the last 4 of your license plate). We are required to share your background check results...

    Bridge tolls in San Francisco?

    Alrighty, so I drove in SF/SJ and paid $16 in tolls ($5, $5, $6) so does Uber automatically reimburse me? I didn't see a credit appear, yet. Thanks in advance!

    Understanding why Surge is good

    Long read, but totally worth it. I think both drivers and customers need to realize why surge pricing is a good thing. Surge actually is a really good idea for more reasons than just basic "supply and demand." Surge is more than the ideology of " I normally sell apples for $0.50 a piece, but now...

    Legendary status?

    So, I just eclipsed the 1000 trips mark. I only drive at night, so I always get the drunk bar crowd, and I have a 4.87. Legendary? Oh, & I don't ask for a 5 star rating and I don't have any signs asking for one either

    Lesson learned...

    I received a ping with a range pick up location so I sent the pax a text asking for the exact location or if they were near a business. After I arrived I started my five minute timer and the pax text me with 2-minutes to spare that they would just come to me. Then at the five minute mark I sent...

    Tried out the San Francisco Market

    Last Friday night I tried out SF Market since I was in the area (Herbst theater Matisyahu concert) and pretty much stayed in that area and near Ruby Skye for the 3 hours I worked. Nothing special, though. Made $15 hour (BEFORE Gas expenses and other expenses). The good thing was that each ping...

    4.33 driver rating?!

    So, I decided to do something a little extra to see if I can keep my rating high (4.88) I bought tasty salt water taffy and I put them in a basket for my pax...I know that these two drunk idiots probably one starred me because I wouldn't take them through Jack in the Box Drive thru, but I...

    $16 Adjustment by Uber...

    Thankfully I check my totals at the end of the night, and when I woke up I noticed a discrepancy. I have emailed them for an explanation. They had not given me any notification, prior. I have a feeling it was a customer who entered in the wrong address and I followed the address that she typed...

    Sorry, Irving! (1.7 pax)

    So, it is 3 a.m. and I get a ping from Irving. Irving has a 1.7 rating. Which means, if you do the math, he has had multiple terrible outcomes with the drivers. He was only 3 minutes away, too. So, do you take the chance? For me, no. That is the point of our rating system. It means he is a very...

    Took a chance with a 3.0 (1.5 surge though)!

    Right from the get go figured out why she was a 3.0 Dropped pin in the wrong spot, was drunk, and the guy she was with was even worse than she was. Then they started talking about a food run, which I wasn't going to do lol I said I could drop them off at a Dennys. The male pax hopefully...

    Weird Surges?

    Tonight I noticed an area that hardly ever gets any business and tonight it was showing at 4.9 Surge?! I know Uber uses surgeto manipulate the drivers and move them around but that is insane. Anyone seen any weird stuff lately? Also, I noticed that when I am using the customer app to see...
