    So on the DC uber drivers Facebook page, there's been talk about more rate cuts coming today. I haven't been able to find any actual statements from uber about this, but I'm royally freaked out right now. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I honestly don't see any reason at all for cutting rates, especially with the increased demand, and if the rates go down at all, I'm up and done.

    No rate cuts, just drivers talking about nothing

    About time too. Banks aren't big enough anymore to accept our million dollar paychecks.

    I'm pretty relieved now. The guy was erroneously referring to the Phoenix cuts.

    Had a uber employee as a pax before and was talking about rate cuts and he said he didn't think it would go lower in DC as it is a unique market and they didn't need to lower rates.
     
  8. You should've asked him to define "unique market."

    Exactly, because several big known markets are now the lowest in the land, would love to know what makes DC so special that they are immune to any more rate cuts
     
  10. What cities ?

    Phoenix was one and I don't have the other one confirmed, but they went into effect sept 11th

    No city is safe from cuts at anytime

    Perhaps the definition of "unique market" is a market where cutting rates does not affect the passenger volume. When I signed on to UberX, the pings came fast-and-furous. The pings still come fast-and-furious. I am hauling the same number of passengers that I always have hauled. The difference is that I am doing so for twenty-two per-cent less than I was when I started.

    in DC? how can you be so sure
    maybe not go down today, or next week, but sure that its never going down?
    inquiring minds want to know how
     
  17. Week ago my insurance contact me told me that I have to renew my policy and new one is more expensive I usually pay 200$ for premium now making pay 650$ the reason is because of I'm TNC driver so that's why be aware anyone who's in TNC can have trouble as me )) so this coming Monday I have to go to dmv and cancel TNC stupid uber news that after apply TNC we going to pay more insurance plus property tax like In Va without TNC we have 50% off the tax as we use it for personal use but now tax 100% plus insurance is expensive so conclusion uber will keep the rate and lick drivers ass to make them stay calm ))))
     
  18. Plus dmv informs a insurance companies about livery drivers as TNC so))))
