So I just went out tonite and got three rides, got home and looked and my pay and rides show as UberX and Uber Pool, while I am Uber Select. What is going on?

You just got baptized. Welcome to the shady world of Uber. When you get the ping, it should say what it is, just because you have a select car doesn't mean you won't get other pings. Unless you have a Select only profile

I am so new, thanks for your reply! What is the Select Only Profile?? On my app I have the ability to change from normal Uber to Select on my profile. I have it on Select. Any tips?

I may be wrong but i think you have to do X amount of rides and maintain a X.xx rating before you qualify for select

I thought the car you drove determined the Select status, no one told me I had to drive my car for so many regular rides....This is all becoming clear to me. From the moment they got my name wrong over 6 times, no support phone number, questions answered over emails from India and now making a total of $24 for my three rides combined. I am rethinking this Uber thing.

Go to the office and tell them you are getting X and pool rides on your select profile. They should fix it on the spot

You're eligible for select, but are probably forced to accept all requests - X and select. The ones you took were probably just X rides.

If you want to only accept select requests, you'll need your account set up that way. Email customer service (or go to your local office) and see if it's possible to set your account up to only get select pings, but don't hold your breath. Be prepared to do plenty of $3 rides in your nice car, whatever it is.

Where is the Uber office? Is it the place I signed up at and got my Tesla inspected? I looked online and see that you are right, you have to have 30 rides and maintain a rating of 4.75 to qualify for Uber Select, guess I have some driving to do!

I don't know about the office, the 30 rides will probably be beneficial to you. Get all tje bugs worked out. People are less forgiving at select rates than X.

I wish i could tell you that your experience dealing with Uber so far is unusual, its not.

On a side note, please reconsider destroying ypur beautiful car driving drunken idiots around.

Where do you see that she said she bought her car for Uber. Don't be an ass, you have no clue what is going on in her life.

Thanks for the support and sticking up for me! I blocked him/ignored him. He is exactly the type of guy I hope never gets in my car.
You're welcome... you may want to post in the Seattle forum for the location of the office.

There is a guy doing Uber in Denver in a Tesla , he said he only was able to buy the car because he does Uber 8 hrs a week to pay the car payment and insurance . He has a free charging station at his work or home can't remember . The guy was really nice said he still profits a bit and it allowed him to buy his dream car .

Back to the Select thing , once you get your rides in have them create 2 profiles for you One Select only and the other X & Select only . Only do X when it's surging over 2x other wise enjoy doing select. You don't get nearly as many rides but you get longer higher paying rides with a better quality of passenger and end up making much more money. Also Select customers seem to tip much more often
