rate cuts

    You guys will love this!

    So I wanted to look back at how my trips would be affected with the new pay cuts, and as far as I can tell, they replaced my earnings with the new rates! Isn't this illegal somehow? See the attachment for a Sunday trip in October, well before this week's S*** Show.

    ***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.

    Gas prices going up - time for uber to raise rates

    Dear Uber: Last year, nj drivers were delighted to see a small increase in their rates to correspond with the increased price of gas in nj, after the state decided to impose a sales tax on the gas, which increased gas prices by maybe 20 cents. According to news reports, the price of gas is...

    Rate cut coming? If so will you quit? If not what is your basement?

    The Rideshare Guy and Uber Man both seem to think another sweeping rate cut is coming January 2017. As we know, Burlington used to be solid and when I started in August 2015 it was $2 per mile. It was cut to $1.60 and then $1.18 thereafter in quick succession. Lately we have also been...

    Checking Pool Fares? ...You Should! Lumping Trips, No Coincidence

    After noticing a significant reduction in total fares after reaching thresholds for trips, I started to paying closer attention to individual fares. In short, Uber is not paying you for the time and miles for each passenger as they claim to be. The only way I was able to determine this is...

Literally working for peanuts on top of I just got laid off from my job. Ughhhh I need a miracle. Rant over. Edit: looked...

    How I Fight Back Against Uber's Rate Cuts, Using Uber's Own System

    First a little intro: I've been a full time Lyft/Uber driver for 9 months in Phoenix Arizona. In that time, I've completed over 3300 rides, over 300 cancellations, and averaged anywhere from $15-$25 an hour each week. I've also gone through two rate cuts on Uber, as well as an incentive cut on...

    Drivers: Say Goodbye to Surge Zones on the app? Maybe!

    I saw no surge here in San Francisco starting at 5 pm and continuing for 4 hours. I went home because I refuse to drive for the money losing base rate. It's now 10:15 and no sign of any surge anywhere. I think we might be seeing the end of surge zones displayed on the partner app.. This is...

    Organizing: Austin TNC drivers

    As many of you know by now, Uber has cut rates again in the Austin market. No doubt, Lyft will follow suit. Unless we, as drivers organize to fight for better rates, TNCs will continue this race to the bottom on the backs of their drivers. We are nothing but pawns to the TNCs and there are more...
