    Lyft Raises Rates

    Got an e-mail from Lyft about new rates going into effect 13 September. Could Uber be far behind in raising their rates as well???

    How to get multiple fares, back to back

    Hello all I am a fairly new driver to uber and I am trying to figure out how to get ongoing trips? How do I get Fair request back to back? After I finish one trip how do I get another one? The partner app explains absolutely nothing but tips.

    UBERSelect STRIKE in Dallas!!!

    It's time for UBERSelect drivers to refuse to take UBERXpassengers. We didn't buy our expensive cars, to take cheap fares. UBERBLACK had a strike in Dallas and won! We need to do the same, so all we get is SELECT fares. There aren't enough UBERX drivers in Dallas, that's why UBERSelect...

    The new fares are so f'ing cheap. UberSUV makes more than UBERBLACK. UBERSELECT no longer receives a minimum of $5.00. So if I drive a Rolls Royce, a guy in GMC SUV makes more than me. I HATE uber!!!

    $40/hr GUARANTEED HOURS Gross Fares Boston = $32

    I am new to this blog so here is my first post: —I got this invitation from uber saying "$40 bucks an hour" and I went out thinking "I am going to make $80 bucks for 2 hours of driving" but miss the "gross Fare" part. At the end I only made $64 because Uber takes 20% commission from those $80...

    Uber income is pricing below the break even point. I really enjoy Driving for Uber and meet a lot of interesting people and the extra money is great. I have only been driving for about 6 months but last Friday I did 6 rideshares and my gross earnings were about $35.00 , which came out to a...

    why are the fares so low? I am wondering what other drivers think?

    I think the factors that Uber considers when setting fares are; number of drivers available or willing to drive for the fares and number of rides requested. If the fares are too high, too many drivers will be on the road. If fares are too low, there will not be enough drivers.

    Best times to drive in PGH?

    Hey all! I've been driving Uber for a bit now. I started in Aug 2015, drove for about a month and then took a hiatus. I recently started driving again this past week; mainly because I need the extra money. The problem I am having is trying to plan accordingly so that I minimize my losses (gas...

    Write Uber to request a fare increase!

    Fellow Burlington drivers. I encourage you to write Uber to request a fare increase. Do so politely and professionally to [email protected] . If enough of us to maybe they will capitulate to some extent. They have been cut twice since I started and there is no way I am making as much as back at...

    Did college graduation boost your earnings?

    Uber promised high demand during college graduations. Did anyone notice higher earnings and increased demand? The main thing I saw was too many drivers on all day preventing any hopes of a sustained surge. There were some brief good moments (including a 3.6x fare) but overall I didn't see an...

    The Hidden Pay Cut in PDBs- More Pools, Less Surge, More Drivers

    So, after 3 weeks of Uber PDBs I've started to see a bad trend on the weekends: Users are selecting more pool trips - whether they need it, or whether they are available Pax for route. This week almost half of my Pool requests were single passenger (in SF), no other riders, so, now users are...

    always check your payout on fares!

    Did a trip from Mavis and Britannia, Mississauga to Scarborough drive, Toronto, 47km and 75 minutes (due to blocked roads/Easter parade). App showed $30 at end of the trip. Used help to query fare from Uber, they corrected it to $48! I thought fares are always correct??? Any ideas why ? Do I...

    Our second fare cut in less than 6 months (Burlington, VT)

    When I started in August 2015 it was $1.60 a mile and 30 cents a minute. It was cut to $1.60 and 25 cents a minute in latter September. It is now late March and as of today we are cut to $1.18 per mile and 20 cents a minute. They put in those temporary guarantees once again but they always find...

    Chuck Norris as a Uber Driver...

    I like goofy Chuck Norris jokes, so I thought of these... •If Chuck Norris gives you 1-star as a passenger, not only will it affect your rating but it's also his way of letting you know how many seconds you have left to live... •Many drivers mistakenly think that they are chasing Surge. In...

    earnings, Collective Bargaining, hourly wage ... ???

    I am proving to myself that it's not all that easy to make good, consistent earnings w/UBER. I have 3 questions ... What would the average weekly earnings of a full-time driver in the Baltimore area be? What would you say an ABOVE AVERAGE partner could make ...? Have I waited too...
