What market are you driving? Would be nice if NY drivers would post some trips with the new pay structure and compare with old pay structure. Based on what others posted here there is no minimum amount guaranteed but instead a different pay rate.LOOK WHAT I GOT PAID ( BELOW ) BY UBER TODAY . Out of 22 of my trips i completed today Uber took out over 50 % on all trips i reviewed and i reviewed almost all of my history . On this trip i got $2.62 after spending $1 for gas, pro rate my car payment, maintenance, insurance and i made nothing yet,
Uber paid themselves a $7.45 for their commission . UNBELIEVABLE !!!
- Base Fare
- Distance (1.51 mi × $0.7950/mi)
- Time (5.02 min × $0.1125/min)
Your earnings are always calculated the same way. On every trip you provide, you earn your base fare, plus time and/or distance rates for the length of the trip, plus applicable tolls, fees, surge/Boost, and promotions. To see your rates anytime, see Fares in the menu.
- Rider Price
Includes any booking fees, pass-through fees, contributions, and reimbursable costs such as tolls paid by the rider.
- Service Fee
- Booking Fee
Now is where it gets harder to understand the new pay structure. Is this just a rate increase for everybody that drives in that market ( a rate increase that will get to at least 26$/h minimum for the big majority, calculus that included waiting for a ping, drive to the pickup and waiting for rider). Uber , based on the data, determined this is what NY market needs to get at 26$/h level. Now my second thought, is this new pay structure variable at times? Are they paying more or less per mile, min just to achive that min 26$/h?!?
If,indeed, this is a pay raise for NY then I’m happy for them and I hope is coming in Chicago too. I don’t know what is that hard to digest the fact NY drivers got a raise, NYC did a great job by forcing uber pay a better rate( to me is as simple as that). If you are a good driver you can only do better with the new rates..... what is the beef that some good drivers don’t like better rates ( don’t we all want better rates? I’m sick to go work for .64$/mile in Chicago). Sick to chase uber’s carrots( quest, consecutive trip bonus or surge), uber should pay higher rates so drivers don’t play the app that much.
