    this is crazy!! its Friday during rush hour and hardly any surges for weeks now!! How RUDE!!! My prime time box is only 40% in the ghetto! after you get 1 ride out the box, its back to base fair! besides its just impossible to catch up its double gas! 2000 a month less in earning! just sick!!! and how can I work my other job if I have to drive 50 hours a week-
    No changes in charges or fee's but a huge reduction in earnings!! and their still hiring new drivers!!! WHY??? TELL ME WHY???? OH IS IT BECAUSE THEY GET PAID TOO SELL YOUR INFORMATION??? ITS SO SATURATED ALREADY!! MAKES NO SENCE AT ALL- ITS STILL 3-5 YEARS BEFORE THEY USE AUTOMATED CARS-

    Same here on the east coast. Some colleges are not back in session yet so the teachers are trying to get their last few days of driving in.

    People are quitting Uber all of the time. They have to bring new folks aboard to replace those who wash out.

    I can be in the middle of a BRIGHT HOT PINK PRIME TIME ZONE and the only pings that I get are fifteen minutes away at base rates. Every once in a while, a Line p ing will come in zone, but, as I do not accept Lines, that does me no good.
