Think what uber is trying to do is find out what the most cost effective incentive is for drivers. If you guys keep driver for these peanuts, they will offer even less. I read in the most replied forum about uber taking away the surge multiplier and giving a flat amount surge in the surge area. For example, a $5 dollar surge are. If your in this zone, you will get $5 on top of the $1.15 a mile. Wtf is that? If they do this, I'm done for good lmfao. I'm sure if they do this lyft might follow but uber with upfront pricing will make a killing doing this. So uber will charge them 3 dollars a mile but still pay you $1.15 a mile and whatever b's $5,$10,$20 flat surge fee to the driver. GOODBYE $300 unicorn rides.
