Damn you only made 33 percent of what the rider paid. This is the real problem with upfront fares. Uber will start to lose riders with that tactic .This revelation really stings...especially since my passenger was pissed his fare was so high even though there was no surge or anything. Getting 24.00 for a 68 dollar trip is outrageous
Same thing happened yesterday on long trip from SFO with no surge on XL. It was at 2pm on a Thursday when traffic was light.This revelation really stings...especially since my passenger was pissed his fare was so high even though there was no surge or anything. Getting 24.00 for a 68 dollar trip is outrageous
Always take the longest way and do the speed limit. Let rider know about upfront pricing so they understand the tug of war we are having with Uber. People will understand and say yeah do what is best...
It is all in your presentation. 2 1/4 years doing this with a 4.98 so not too worried about the rating. Most people I explain it to never understood it so a lot of times they are enlightened. Have made 20% tips this past week as well.I actually disagree with you about trying to get passengers' sympathy; the majority of pax don't give a shit about how little drivers actually make, how crappy pay is, etc....heck, they can barely comprehend the fact that drivers don't make money unless the car is in motion.
Based on comments by passengers, many of them think Uber has become an expensive mode of transport and they truly don't care about how poorly Uber treats its driver "partners" (lol, "partners" what a joke).
Talking about money, fares, and how big bad Uber divides rider payments will at best make a pax uncomfortable, at worst it will make them resent you and will likely lead to a low rating and no chance of a tip. I realize they may act sympathetic and act like they give a hoot - but trust -- all you'll be doing is making them feel shitty.
They really really don't care about drivers or what drivers earn.
If your passenger mentions a high fare teill them to change the destination after the ride starts. Put in the building next door or something. This should change the charge from upfront to time and mileage according to the city rate chart.Jesus Christ!!!!! I'm getting angry looking at that....... even though I'm not involved in the certain rides, I'm still outside the market involved with this robbery being a driver for Uber.
Not unless I had deviated way out of the way to the point of it being obvious that I was trying to “milk” the miles. It was a straight shot up the tollway to the destination.Actually you only got $21 and reimbursement for the passenger’s toll. This wide of a gap could be due to a too efficient route on your part. Was there another way to take them that was significantly more miles? Maybe avoided the toll?
Exactly. Apparently they are pulling this stunt at Love and DFW too. They know folks will pay it, so they charge more and pay us the same....total BS on Uber.Ahhahaha, you guys should see the shit they pull in the dallas nice suburbs. $80/ 20 mile ride all day everyday.
Airport pax are taking taxis again. Especially on Thursday night.
