    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. #########

    How 2 Increase $$$$⬆⬆⬆ the Rates in SD! (Our gas prices ARE the HIGHEST in the Nation afterall)

    After a long chat with someone at the hub today, I found some very interesting insight into the ways uber changes driver pay. I actually spoke with someone who was a driver previously and he was definitely on my side when I complained about the driver pay decrease. He said that he saw this...

    Uber’s new rates have drivers crying foul

    https://amp.businessinsider.com/new-uber-pay-rates-hurt-earnings-drivers-say-2018-12 A new Uber pay structure that prioritizes time over distance as they pertain to driver earnings has some drivers frustrated with the company. Last week, the ride-hailing giant shifted the payout rates for...

    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...

    sneaky rate increases

    So has anyone else noticed the Orlando rates for passengers has sneakily increased at some point? Per minute charge is about same but per mile rate went up by about $.10 at some point.

    Ola drops fares in Canberra (and elsewhere)

    When Ola recently increased its commission from the introductory rate of 7.5% to the standard rate of 15%, it also surreptitiously dropped the rates. In Canberra, this now means that Uber pays better than Ola even after taking into account Uber’s higher commission of 27.5%. Uber’s rates for...

    Uber takes more than the local cab companies

    Lately, I've been looking at how much uber charges pax vs my payout. On full shifts of at least 6 hours, uber takes vastly more than I would be paying the local cab company. This is at less than half cab rates as well. Driving my own car, on my own insurance, liable for damn near...

    Atlanta events, surge, boost....

    It seems ridiculously rare to actually get these rate bumps. Not at designated rideshare pickup after the game, at the designated time..... Not in designated boost area at designated times. Watching my time and miles... Learned to never request fare adjustment for rider...

    I believe its time we took a stand against the low rates we've been provided for years.

    We're going to need to take a stand here. The more people, passengers and drivers we can get involved the better. For years now we've been getting the lowest rates possible. UBER has gotten away with it until this point. I plan to raise awareness for us. I've started a petition. Which is the...

    Drivers with different rates in same market?

    My San Francisco city rate for Uber X is $.975. A driver friend of mine is getting $1.25 in the city, also for Uber X. How can this be?

    Without driving like a trucker and having a normal life, how simple would it be to make $150 a week Uberx (not sure if I can do Lyft) in Philly, south & central Jersey?

    Are they think we will continue driving for this ?

    Why are LA and OC rates much lower than us?

    Does anyone know why? Places like Seattle, Chicago, SF, NY and Boston are being paid "big city" rates as you'd expect but LA is excluded from this. Why such big discrepancy?
