I guess Uber opened the gate of pool today. 25 consecutive pool requests and all declined. My acceptance rate reached new low. Also saw even SUV giving pool rides to 'help the community' move. How about you guys in helping pool community ? :eek:

Nothing but pool rides all morning! Folks are broke from the hurricane & cutting cost everywhere they can.

I just hate Uber Pool, but like everyone else I need the funds so I got to swallow my pride and take them. Some funds are better than none at this point.

I really dislike how much Uber takes advantage of drivers with Uber Pool - Shame on you Uber.....oh I forgot they don't care.

Why is there unusually high number of pool requests than anytime before ? Is Uberpool free for the riders now ?
.

What I've been noticing is a HUGE difference in UberPoo versus X prices lately, as I take Uber/Lyft a lot. Example, from the Biltmore to Brickell it costs around $12 for X, and have been seeing UberPoo rides for under $4. Take it in an off hour and you're almost GUARANTEED to be by yourself in the car

Drove today to work and had eight UberPoo requests and one X. The X ended up being a few blocks, but at least I wasn't a caravan

Yep. I was at commercial and the turnpike. To FLL the pool price was $12. The X was $25. Now I'm in Hollywood by Sheridan pool price to FLL is $6. X is $11. No wonder everyone going pool.

If the price difference is that much there is an additional rider/minion to pick up for sure.

If the price is close to x most likely a ride by yourself.

If the price is almost or greater than half, i can't blame anyone for taking pool

I just checked the rider app again and now from Oakland Pk to FLL pool $16 X $20 miami airport pool $44 X$46

maybe at certain times of the day Uber plays games with the pool/X spread......now its tighter...

anyhow, I'm home, and staying here a few hours, just low demand and too many cars out there...

Everyone is feeling the slowdown hurricane Irma forced. But every service industry passenger I had last night threw me a couple bucks.
