That s before uber cut !!Time to find another Job!!!
I know it makes me sick!! Drivers in that city need to go to their City Transportation office..mayor whomever & raise some hell. That should be illegal.
I'm all done for real..lol. I will not accept and if you do your an idiot. Uber gets $.08 of the .30 also. By the time the Safe Rides is deducted it will be even less. Bastards.
That is ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shame on you uber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think Detroit is the test market to see how low they can possibly go and keep enough drivers on the road. If it works in Detroit, then it will come everywhere.
Well it good to know even at 30 cent a mile they still have a 2.30 safe riders fee.
Jesus those poor saps..if there are any cars on the road they deserve it.
You cannot make money at that rate period. If anyone dives at that rate they aren't doing it for the money.
They are addicted
Everybody in this market should drive surge only.That the only way uber will increase rates.Detriot should not drive at surge our no surge
.30 cents is actually .24 cents a mile, @20%
And for the newest combatants @25% its .22.50 cents a mile.
You have to have your head examined by a specialist to drive at those rates.
That is a crazy high safe rider fee compared to other cities. Whos is being safe? The rider or the driver, and why does it cost more to be safe in Detroit? Is Uber providing bullet proof shields for the drivers?
At this $0.30 rate the driver should just toss his/her keys to the passenger and let them drive off with the car, it's highway robbery.
Well they also upped the rate per minute to .30. So ideally you'd pick up a rider who wants to go nowhere for an hour and make an $18.00 fare.
There was a football game today in frisco.
Being the seasoned vet I stayed offline waiting for the surge. .mind you I arrived 10 minutes before it was over. .
On the rider app a dozen x cars were logged in. .pfft
6 select cars and maybe 5 or 6 xl.
Hour later it showed no cars available except for select.
AS SOON AS I TURNED APP ON BACK 2 BACK PINGS..
Your telling me there wasn't enough demand to create surge? ???
2 timeouts later I was forced to except a x non surge ride. .7 bux my part.
Gotta love it. .
About 15 mins ago. Right by Uber headquarters in Allen Park. I assume Allen Park is part of Detroit. Same rates .30 cents a mile. No?
Wow! The saddest part is there's still drivers on the roads of Detroit. What a shame.
Shame on you for driving at the current rates, the new rates, well, lol.
Shame on who and what are you talking about, exactly??
Only way to find out is for a forum member who lives in Detroit is to summons a ride to see if someone is actually driving in their direction and then cancel on them. Or wait till the driver gets there and tell him what a dumba** he or she is driving for .24 cents a mile then cancel.
Most excellent UBER ON..
