    Comfort vs. X Commission Rates

    I need some input before I decide how much time to invest calling support. Is the commission for both X and Comfort supposed to be the same? I pay 20% for X and Uber's taking 28% for Comfort. The result is I actually earn less on Comfort than X. Did they screw up or are the percentages supposed...

    Drivers from 2014 and 2015 reply only please

    Why are you still driving? I have my car patched together and trying to find any logic in riding this car at 188k till it stops, and with the continued work that needs to be done so far still no profit. Did you just get new cars and continue through the rate cuts? Or did you somehow continue...

    An introductory essay exploring the compensation of the Ant in a capitalist society

    Ants, I feel all of the frustration from the ants stemming from pay rates and I do believe pay is too low to be profitable in the long run. I would like to have a thoughtful conversation around this topic instead of ranting with system 1 knee-jerk commentary about simply raising rates as if that...

    No Surges on a Saturday Night ! Uber system outage last night?

    Called support, said there was an issue, but they are working to correct it. Of course this was right before 1. No requests were coming through, and absolute joke last night. It was obvious the system was messed up, and of course support is no support. Maybe this the secrete behind the new surge...

    Compare rates

    Uber pays different rates to different drivers within the same rate area. I know this from speaking with drivers while I’ve been a passenger. With all of the shenanigans Uber’s been doing to pay us less, we should really compare rates. Here’s the detail on what I got tonight for a ride from...

    Rate Analysis & perspectives

    Check any ride at any time for the direct impact on your earnings. Uber is grabbing a larger share of the passenger fare on fast long hauls. Uber’s percentage increases the closer you get to one mile per minute, All other rides are just NOISE in the final analysis. #########

    Nobody should be taking passengers via Hiawatha

    With Uber’s new “pay rates” they’ll be taking a heck of a lot more when you take Hiawatha. Anywhere from 5-20% and over the long run this will cost you dearly. So maximize you pay and take 35w EVERY TIME! When you’re solo of course take the less traffic way but even with traffic take passengers...

    113 TRIPS COMPARISON (OLD RATE VS NEW RATE) Shockingly Transparent

    Uber's reasoning to create a more consistent comp plan is fundamentally a crock of poop since successful drivers tailor their driving pattern to the style that works for them. For example, my focus has always been on the greatest distance with the least amount of time. My ideal airport run is...
