Lyft does it too. I experienced it for the first time this last weekend. At least with uber you can pump out a bunch of rides and go to t.i. with kingdog and fam. I started off deliberately spacing out my rides because there aren't too many places to hide with lyft when they require 2 rides an hour. But I kept getting caught sweating for that last ride because I couldn't get a ping. And when that second ping did come in, it would take me across the city and take 30 min to complete, running well into my next hour and putting the pressure on all over again.This has been going on for a long time, people would complain about long wait time at he lot and I would be like "uh what are these folks smoking" that's when I knew uber does this.
Also some days I would drive 6 hours without a ride that ends or heads to particular part of town first thought it was a coincidence but then things like none stop out town trips or days with huge number of pools there is so many tells
Long story short , There is planning and scheduling going on.
Once again you bring nothing to the table. Good jobYeah...it's time to play hardball with no designated hitter ... just as certain drivers cherry pick their riders - declining rides and canceling rides because it's not profitable to drive down the Peninsula, across the Bay Bridge or the Golden Gate Bridge, or to the South Bay, AND dead mile back, because one has a "dental appointment," or "pick up the kid at a daycare," or simply because it's not surging ... weaving and bobbing, feinting and sucker punching, and hitting the ol' one-two ... faking the flop and pretending to be injured ...
Yup!! It's time to play hardball!!!
Damn, you drove 6 min to get him, with no surge, at 1:30am? Didn't matter where he's going. Let the ants pick him up and by 1:45 you have all the surge for yourself, and even higher the longer you wait.3. Ofcourse i didnt take him. Before i get home ill fall asleep comming back.
There really need to be some kind of warnings for those rides especially that late at night when drivers tires.
Or someone needs to cover dead miles better.
Taxis chill with long rides cuz its 2.5 per mile....cant do same for uber
Duh??...Long story short , There is planning and scheduling going on.
If you want the bonuses, you can't afford not to opt in. How many times have drivers been screwed because their opt-in didn't register with uber, compared to the amount of drivers who get these bonuses without a text or email? Highly skewed my manDuh??
Well, then don't opt in ... That's how they can track you ... That's why some drivers get bonuses even though they didn't receive any e-mails or texts ... But if you opt in, they know who you are ... And depending on your CARMA, you get rewarded accordingly, or not ...
What?? Can you send again?? Say what?? Um, I can't hear you?? Can you see me?? What??? Damn phone!! What a piece o' bovine feces !!! Did you get my message??? What?? Must be the Internet .......How many times have drivers been screwed because their opt-in didn't register with uber, compared to the amount of drivers who get these bonuses without a text or email? Highly skewed my man
Great point. Luckily with lyft the second and third passengers pay the same surge as the first. But you never know if you're picking up a 4.2 rated pax aside from the first pax. There's no way to tell and no way to cancel, other than cancelling the whole lineI'm honestly bothered a lot more with payment issues around pool that border on fraudulent and illegal. I've always just assumed ride preferencing happened
For instance if you pick up a 2.0x pool rider then a 1.0x rider, drivers income goes down
Sure they do...uh huh...and what surge level is that?Great point. Luckily with lyft the second and third passengers pay the same surge as the first.
Except both the post title and link in first message is about uberI'm speaking for lyft. And you can't sit at t.i. with lyft, wouldn't make sense
