    Breaking news:
    Boston, Pittsburgh and D.C. all just started threads saying Uber is decreasing their milage rate and increasing the rate for time.
    As your market releases this news, please post here.

    Add Miami to the list.

    there's really no point driving to a surge if you're only going to be making $5 expecially while Uber is getting the extra $20

    Not according to Uber. Lower milage Rate means more pay!

    Just in case people don't understand, there is no way they are doing anything pay related unless it benefits them.

    In classic Uber form...

    If they wanted to better value our time they would simply raise our time rates without robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    Happened in Chicago 3 or so weeks ago.

    It is a pay cut. Unless you’re driving like a grandma.
     
  15. I don't think we can go any lower in Charlotte, it was nice to go from empty to full for $19 on the Prius today. $2.11 Gas near the airport gets me excited. That's 500 mile range for less than $20
     
  16. Makes sense since
    Those (and most) cities have

    Heavy vehicular congestion and
    Constant construction.

    We’re spending more & more time sitting in terrific

    We have no choice but to drive @ a 5MPH crawl

    Are you crazy this is a 10% pay cut or more and the new surge is a joke.
     
  18. Yet: u will continue to Activate the drivers App and chauffeur Uber’s clients with a smile

    It’s just ubers way of reminding us that Drivers are Powerless, Disposable
    and in plentiful supply

    Well I will not be driving late or taking long rides that is for sure I’m sure all the new drivers will because they do not know any better. The only way it can change is if drivers do not drive or quit. And as always no I will not go through a drive through but I might stop at 7/11 and tell them like I always do you have 3 minutes.
