    So I just drove someone from Burbank Airport to Tujunga area it was about 13 miles. She was a bus driver so we spoke about pay and blah blah... needless to say when we arrive she shows me she was charged $23 for the trip. Her fare range was $17-$23. I was shown the fare cost $13. My fare range...

    Cars can make extra money, outside Uber?

    Hey everyone, I am not an Uber driver as of this moment, but the lack of monetary compensation that Uber gives to its drivers still pisses me off. I take the service almost daily and I believe that the drivers deserve better than what they are getting. So, I was thinking of something that...

    How can I make more money from airport trips?

    I am a new driver (both Lyft and Uber). Hear from friends that airport trips are good, but also heard there are a lot of short trips. Can I cancel the trips I don't like? How do you guys make sure the money you make is worth the wait?

    Fare dispute

    So I started I fare before picking up someone because it started the pick up timer when I was 2 blocks away and took 4min to get to the passenger. So I started the fare to prevent the rider being charged as I wasn't even there yet. Then the prick gave me low stars and dispute the fare and Uber...

    How many riders? App info

    I no longer see in app how many passengers to expect at pickup after accepting trip request. Where should I be looking for this info? In fare details I no longer see a calculation based on the number of people riding. When did I start giving free rides?

    Fare Non transparency with Uber

    On the New Uber App, did anyone notice for the trip breakdown, we cannot see what the passenger paid anymore?o_Oo_Oo_Oo_O - Is this Uber's way to hide how much they take on the percentage of the fare? At least with Lyft his information is still visible! :):):)

    Check your fares

    Went through my fares from today and I was underpaid (Uber took a higher cut than they were supposed to) on all but one. Not sure what that's about, but makes me want to go through them all now.

    Longhauling to make more money on Uber/LYFT

    Hello Community, Any one try long hauling (taking a longer route to a destination) to make extra money driving Uber/Lyft. As per article below, by doing this you could easily increase your fare received by 20-30%. Personally, I find it dishonest, equivalent to mechanics padding the bill...

    New Surge, New App

    Seeing that a lot of new cities are getting the new surge, it is only a matter of time before we get it as well. For the most part this will be a lost for long trips and probably a win for short trips. The highest surge I seen with the new surge was +40 for 93 mile trip. Pretty crappy if you ask...

    New “service fee”...time to switch to Lyft.

    This revelation really stings...especially since my passenger was pissed his fare was so high even though there was no surge or anything. Getting 24.00 for a 68 dollar trip is outrageous

    Atlanta events, surge, boost....

    It seems ridiculously rare to actually get these rate bumps. Not at designated rideshare pickup after the game, at the designated time..... Not in designated boost area at designated times. Watching my time and miles... Learned to never request fare adjustment for rider...

    Am I the only one having this problem or just the one that noticed Uber shaving mileage from trips?

    Since the fare restructuring in May of 2017 during their "180 Days of Change" & net fares were all that were displayed - no gross amounts and no Uber fees on any statement (only in detailed fare breakdowns) - I've been checking trips individually from pick up to drop off. In 2017 I had over...
