    Uber tech glitch logged as improper use of app

    I don’t know if anyone else has had this issue, but my app was glitching and Uber logged it as my improper use of the app and suspended my instant pay and rescinded my bonus. I spoke to 4 different representatives and recorded the phone calls and they just kept opening cases and sending me...

    You ain't kidding we work for pennies!

    Like a dummy I took a ping with Long pickup fee "likely". Drove over 10 minutes to arrive at the location. Uber navigation took my down a street toward a Hotel that had that street entrance blocked off. OK, so I drive a few blocks more to come around to an open entrance. No big deal because I...

    UBER LUBE? Where can I buy?

    Drove for almost 4 hours this morning. Had a $60 donuts and coffee delivery and got paid $5.82. I mean WOW guys do I get free lube for taking orders that big and getting raped in every ORIFICE or what? Grub Hub is activated and all I have to do is go get my equipment. Do you guys even care...

    Xchange leasing screwed me. Seek representation.

    Just got my car repossessed after making what I thought was 3 payments over 2 weeks to catch up the little I was behind. Stopped doing uber but a month ahold cuz I wasn't making squat. Got a delivery job that made decent money and tried to pay online multiple times. When it wouldn't go through...

    Boosts give Uber an extra cut

    I was thinking about this today and decided to do the math on 3 random boost trips i completed yesterday. 1/3 trips showed a disproportionate payout to uber vs the extra money paid to me. *check out image below On a trip from Oakland to San Francisco during a 1.3x boost guarantee Uber gets...

    3 peak rides in 3 hours

    It's so obvious, I can't believe how 90% different it is now.besides no rides over 15 dollars, they destroy's impossible to get your peak rides. All week has been just a joke!! Had to stop, because I only made 23 dollars since 9 pm til 1pm... Brutality now, just utter slavery.

    Getting ubered!

    With each dollar they steal from me I grow angrier. How much longer can you afford to get ubered without lube or eye contact?

    ARTIFICIAL SURGE Uber says "just because your sitting in 8.1 surge doesn't mean you will get paid"

    Let me first say When Uber first came out it was a great opportunity to supplement income.....BUT as they got bigger and more recognized they started to care less and less about the drivers. So as I'm sitting in traffic for 20 min outside the all-state waiting for a concert to end I am...

    My car broke.

    My car broke down and will likely cost a couple thousand dollars to fix. I've taken in roughly $9200 in revenue this year but figure I've spent close to $2000 on gas and repairs and now this $2000 repair leaves me with like $5000 for almost an entire year of part time driving hell. Uber's cut...

    Why I have stopped driving for Uber and Lyft.

    I have stopped driving as of 3 days ago. I have been driving in Phoenix for about 5 months, mainly full time at about 50 hours a week. I drive mainly during the day and average $10-17 per hour gross. Once I calculated what all of the ACTUAL costs are, including vehicle depreciation, I realised...

    This job makes me wanna cry

    Uber is totally ripping us drivers off. It could be good if they were just an honest company with solid ethics. They are the worst damn company I've ever come across. Worked my ass off last night - 10 rides over 5 hours and made $67. Probably spent around $20 on gas. It just sucks...

    Atl $6.75 base fare uber gets $3.00

    So as you have seen a text lately talking about a base fare of $6.75 but then heard nothing else, well it has been raised yet the partner doesn't benefit and neither does the customer, $6.75 -1.75 booking fee - 1.25 uber fee partner makes $3.75 and uber gets $3.00. Makes sense considering they...

    Bad news for UberX drivers in the Canberra budget.

    From Drivers license fees will increase by 5 per cent in 2016-17 to $180.18, however this will be offset for those with a clean driving record, due to changes to the good drivers discount. There will be a 5 per cent increase, or...
