A new account equals better service

I just learned one of the dirty little secrets of uber, and I will share it with you. Uber reserves the best service for new customers. You see, Uber is hoping to hook is many people as possible on to their service. So when someone is trying out Uber for the first time, they really roll out the red carpet.
Unfortunately, after you have become hooked and have been using their service for a while, Uber will stop assigning Uber's to you as quickly, and will be more apt to assign lower-quality drivers to you.

I have just learned this myself by experience. I remember when I first signed up for Uber, it seems like there was always somebody readily available, and although I did not notice at the time, the drivers seemed more professional.
Unfortunately, over time, my waiting time to get a new Uber has been getting longer and longer. There have been times I have requested in Uber and have had to wait 20 minutes, although I was located close to the metro area early in the evening. Also, it seems as if I have been getting more drivers who can barely speak English. This has been very frustrating for me, and I have been considering stop using Uber for a while.


Last month, I had to get a new phone number, and I decided to get a new Uber account so I could get a free ride. To be honest, I was very surprised to see what a difference this made. I was matched with a driver within seconds of requesting an Uber. After leaving the club, I once again was matched with another driver although it was during peak hours.
Both drivers were young and professional. I have been getting accustomed to getting matched to the bottom of the barrel. I thought I just got lucky, however after two more times using the app, my experience was very similar.
I dread to see my service slowly decline back to the way it was, although now I know the key to get the best service. Must we really have to get a new phone in order to get decent service? Hmmmm

Both drivers were young . . .

. . . ageism is just another -ism.
That is not what I meant. In fact, the best driver I ever had was a senior citizen. I'm just saying that before getting my new account, I have really been getting the bottom of the barrel for my drivers.

Where have you been? I don't know, i get new riders all the time. By your standards i shouldn't be driving.


What you are describing old/new account sounds like your old rating was shitty do drivers passed and passed until you got a desperate enough driver to accept...

Or...

Its just a coincidence

Sounds like you're a bit anxious, xenophobic, and ageist.

Wonderful. Now she can screw the system all over again from scratch. Clear up till people give her her 3.0 star rating again through her elitist and millennial ways.
If only it was that easy for drivers to have a bone thrown so we didn't have to listen to people just like her and could toss them out of our cars with a bigger smile.
