    Lying Lyft slashes rates - WE MUST REVOLT.

    Lying Lyft has slashed rates, claiming we’ll make “about the same” - “a little more” on short trips, and a little less on long. Total BS, I’ve done the math based on trips I’ve completed, and it’s a lot less all around. WE MUST REVOLT. Like most TNC drivers, I cannot afford to go on strike...

    #No2NewYears

    We're all in different positions meaning some can afford to stop driving for Uber immediately while others can't afford to do so. As for me my Uber App is OFF as of yesterday until rates are corrected/reversed. Just because you can't stop driving today doesnt mean as a whole we can't send a...

    ***OFFICIAL*** rate cut protest thread (currently organizing)

    1. I would like to keep the posts in this thread to a minimum because further information will follow. I would also ask for no one to post any thing until I do another post.

    Uber price cuts... Director's cut

    With all the recent cuts to Boost multiple and hours, it's like we're experienceing another price cut by proxy. For those that weren't around 2013-2014 nows your chance to experience the monetary BS this company likes to play. Big difference between now and then is that drivers have the upper...

    Lyft’s insane fare cuts will make you think twice about Uber

    From the New York Post - Lyft is spending big again in New York City to beat back Uber. The ride-hailing app is slashing fares for passengers by 50 percent for all hours between Monday and Friday — and is letting drivers keep 100 percent of the tab. The exceptionally sweet deals are being...

    "Pew found that 41% of Americans with annual household income of $100,000 or more have used at least four of the 11 services in the categories like ride-hailing, home-sharing, and crowdsourcing startup projects and products through services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. This is three times as...

    What must be included in any Miami Drivers vs Uber national class action settlement

    The California Massachussets Uber driver settlement leaves the lawyers rich and TNC drivers left between a rock and a hard place with no clarification of what rights drivers are entitled to under the Federal antitrust law called the Sherman Act. The Sherman Act that prevents you from unionizing...

    Minimum Fare?

    Opened up the rider app and put my pin over EWR to see if any surge not on driver app. No surge but what struck me is there was no minimum fare posted. Went to JC, Bayonne, Hobotown and saw same thing. Everywhere else has a minimum fare posted. What's up with these places? Pool? Makes me...

    Who if anyone is actually striking for Super Bowl Sunday?

    Who if anyone is actually striking for Super Bowl Sunday? I put in 8 hours on Monday came away with $40.00 and was on the other side of town from my house at 3:00 am. Before the rate cuts this would/should have been a $80-100 night. More so because of the Spurs game, which I have yet to see...

    http://abc7ny.com/traffic/taxi-drivers-protest-uber-price-drop/1178638/ If we want our fares to go up ... our best bet is to enlist our cabbie brethren. From prior experience as a cabbie, most cab fares are regulated by city ordinance; primarily to prevent cab companies from increasing fares...

    Rate Cut = I quit

    Well, Uber has finally pushed me away. I went out for some Friday night OU dorm/Campus Corner/Greek Row drunk college kid ferrying. My first UberXL ride paid $4.22. I then had a 1.7x "surge" UberX ride go $3.75 and then another UberXL ride also go $3.75. I then had an UberX ride pay $2.90...
