    Email from Uber about a Sales Tax Increase

    Former driver but I still use the app for rides. Anywho I just received this email from Uber about a potential sales tax increase that will make riders pay more and drivers earn less, I’m guessing so they don’t have to come out of pocket but idk. Anyway does anyone know anything about this?

    A Ride Share APP that will disrupt Uber/Lyft

    An APP that sends a ping to the drivers closest to the pick up. Free Market pricing similar to when Uber/Lyft decide on a Price Surge based on Supply and Demand. Sort of like the Ebay of Ride Share. The difference with this APP is the drivers decide on the price and PAX can decide to accept...

    It's getting worse.

    Took 51% of the ride total. I tell Pax all the time that they need to leave earlier or Byrd or Lime like 4 blocks away. I do wish I had more of that fare ofc, but robbing these drunks blind should come from the guy listening to and smelling these people. Just crazy

    Airport surge

    Had a 13.00 surge at Logan. Rider went to Billerica. 35 minutes and 27 miles. Fare said surge was 13.00. Never adjusted for long trip. Called the support-bots and was told that the surge amounts from Logan are never adjusted for distance or time. It's always flat. Anyone else even hear about...

    Trying to resolve shortchanged fares @ Green Light Hub?

    Fuber's in-app process for disputing fares is execrable, so I usually call Fuber to fix my fares. I have screenshots to prove Fuber is cheating me on distances, but no way to attach them in-app. Can the staff at the GLH make credit adjustments to our fares?

    Lyft Fare increases? Platform Fees? Driver cuts? Gas increase?

    Hi Lyft rolled out their new "rate" card the other day. They also now display just your net pay as a driver. You have to dig a little and find the fares that rider paid. I was shocked the other day as I used Lyft as a rider to a normal night out spot we go to rather frequently. Its normally...

    How many 4 passenger trips have you had on Uber-X/Lyft not including Uber Pool or Lyft Line?

    Hello Community, Just wondering about the number of passengers that you pick up on a single request. I have only had 2 trips that had 4 passengers on Uber-X/Lyft in the last 6 months. I kind of prefer this as having more passengers means more weight to shuttle around for the same fare...

    Where is our "Fares" section on the Uber website driver profile?

    Americans seem to have a Fares section on their profile in the Uber website that lists the time and distance based fares for their area. I don't have that in Hobart. Is it only an American thing?

    Hudson County is a waste of time

    Basically I came off a shift Making. I've been driving for 8 months and have a lot of insight to offer but just realized I've been a major dolt. I live in Montclair. I've spent most of my time in the surrounding areas which of course leads to Hudson County... Am I wasting my time in Greater...

    Rates and Fares for Dallas Drivers

    Are the rates below the same rates every uberX driver has in the Dallas area? I've seen online others say theirs are higher. I've asked uber support, but they wont give me a straight answer, just a copy/pasted sounding response. Base Fare: $0.80 Per Mile: $0.73 Per Minute: $0.08 Per Minute...

    Sneaky way for uber to get extra cash

    This weekend I did a pool trip from LAX, 16 miles, 65 minutes, I got paid $33 and the numbers did not add up, between both pax they payed $83. My fare is correct based on miles, minutes, and surge (2x for the longest ride, 1.2 for the short ride)(I even estimated the whole fare at 2x). I get...

    Discussion of 3695 as it Applies Today

    There are certain aspects of this law that stick in my craw when I consider how Uber is doing things right now. Particularly with regard to upfront pricing and what we actually get paid. Following is a paragraph copied directly from 3695 regarding how a TNC collects a fare from the rider on...

    LYFT is a terrible company!

    Lyft is an absolutely immoral and unethical company. They hide behind the smoke screen of 'diversity' and 'inclusion' but they do not believe in those things. As a NYC driver, I cannot count how many times I've reached out to this incompetent company and have not heard anything back. They do not...
