    Does pax rating affect upfront pricing?

    I've started to notice that upfront seems to be tied pax ratings. Long or short doesn't matter. The ones uber gouges the least tend to have crazy high ratings, 4.9 - 5.0, often less than actual price. The 4.5 - 4.8 crowd seem to get a slightly higher price. No idea about <4.5 because nope. I...

    Upfront pricing

    I thought I would create a new thread on this worrying topic rather than leaving it buried within the "Surge not Showing" thread. Upfront pricing appears to be on its way, judging by the noises being made elsewhere. Its a new Uber scam that allows Uber to rip off both riders and drivers...

    Does Boston have upfront fares yet?

    as you may know upfront fares charge higher than the rate would've actually been and the drivers get a 0% cut of the overage. It's a way for over to get 100% of a fare increase. I was just curious of Boston rates have upfront fare yet.
