No more pool

Uber's IPO would mean that there will be a much increased pressure from investors to turn a profit. That could potentially force Uber to stop subsidizing rides, giving promotions, raise pax rates and eventually get rid of pool. What do you think?

They'll raise the per-mile/per-minute rates to become profitable and pay drivers the same as they always have. With both companies going public this race to the bottom is even more unnecessary and both companies will be obligated to try and turn a profit.

We should have asked fake Dara about this. His answer would have been interesting.

I think they will keep pool. It is more profitable than UberX.

The second and later riders pay full pool rate. We drivers only get $1 more per rider and paid mileage only for distance beyond thr first rider
