They don't care about your acceptance rate, only cancellation. Pick and choose all you want, just try not to cancel too many trips after accepting them.

Technically no, but they have ALL the cards and there is alot of grey area for both Uber and Lyft to operate in behind the app. Depending on your market whether there is a surplus of drivers, what hours you drive etc. they can and will decrease (throttle down) the number of pings you get.

It's illegal for them to deactivate you for acceptance rate. According to the courts that would mean that you would be classified as an employee, and therefore you would qualify for things like health insurance or a minimum wage along with the standard mileage rate.

Stop spreading misinformation.

There has never been any proof of this statement.

Can you prove it's mis-information?

No one has access to the data to prove what they do or don't do either way.

There seems to be an awful lot of drivers complaining how slow it is sometimes yet drivers in the same area are getting ping after ping....

Some things don't add up there. There's apparently more that goes on behind the scenes then we are knowledgeable about.

Just because it can't be proved conclusively doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

With regards to profitability I don't think that waiting for the 45+ notification would be profitable. Those trips are rare enough where you'd have to sit there and reject 100 or more trips to get the long trip notification. So you could sit there for hours before getting a ride.

i have played it both ways and there is a definite difference in the amount of pings and quality of rides i get when AR is low.
this happens on both apps

when all you guys that play games are complaining about making no money, i still make the same amount year round, that is proof enough for me

its truth they cannot deactivate you, but they can certainly give you less work and f with you
some think they can outsmart AI, good luck

There is no proof of the opposite either.

The general conscientious is that Uber doesn't care about your acceptance rate becasue they can't deactivate you for a low one. But, I believe, with a low acceptance rate you get pushed shitter rides.

Damn I always let those 45+ min runs. I like those 15-20 10 mile runs which keeps me within or at least close to a ride right after I drop off. I'll take a ride to Burlington, Waltham and maybe Lexington but that depends on the time of day. Oh to answer your question no you will not be deactivated.

They are rare if you dont know how to get then

I think for those of us with a life the thought of sitting around waiting for the long trip is hard to understand. But if people don’t mind wasting all day on the app I guess more power to them.
