    anyone else notice that theres been way less demand and its effected your pay the past month or so? i went from $600 a week to $350 a week. my routine didnt change so i changed it, same result. no matter where or when i go, its become less and less demanding. is it just me?? has the advertising saturated the market for drivers? do they give more biz to new drivers? wtf?

    Driver saturation.
    Uber puts no cap on X partners.
    That's the nature of a free market business, many of us tried to warn you.

    Plus, let's not forget how much the incentives, guarantees and promotions have all the new DOOBERS blind and clueless of how it REALLY is to earn that $$$..

    Once THAT particular flow stops and the actual cost of driving sets in without them having taken it into account before hand, we might gradually see somewhat of a difference again.

    thats a good point but damn until then
     
  6. I dunno man. August has been the best month for me. Compared to the rest since Jan. All the other average the same +/- 50.

    I think its a weekly day trip to OC, but didn't do that the last two, and the luck of long trips has to do with it.

    Uber's basic lie:
    "There IS such thing as a free lunch!".

    Don't worry uber will lower rates to increase demand!!
     
  11. Write them, and you would probably get a reply like this one. "Don't worry jaimeritchie, with uBer X new rates soon to be only .65 cents a mile, rider demand will be into the stratosphere! And that means more trips and more earnings for our partners! uBer on!"

  12. I still find it ****ing hilarious these Uber morons had the gall to claim we were going to make more money with lower rates. If I ever meet Travis K I'm going to wring his ****boy neck over that one.

  14. It's all about your luck. ....and way to many drivers
     
  15. That's strange. Friday night, I took a family back home and they said that they had requested an Uber ride earlier in the day to get to their destination and the Uber App said "No Drivers Available." So is their 'driver saturation' or 'less folks using Uber?"

    I think their [ sic ] is writer's block when using gray matter.

    Specification in general.

    Reference your family: Did you take them from California to California?
