Sometimes I take pool to go 3 to 4 blocks.
Wait time? 10 to 15 minutes.. -:mad::mad::mad: then another 10 minutes drive
I should have walked

Paxs don't care. As long as price is lower than UberX, they will do it.

I was thinking last night, I hope ants snap up pool like crazy for this new added bonus! More X pings for me.

walking the streets can be a very dangerous thing for a duckling. And watch out for pools, they can be hard for a duckling to climb out of.

When it comes to money, I don't think self respect matters.
There is nothing wrong with you sharing a ride with someone.
I don’t even want to share my ride as a driver. Why in the world would I want to get into a car with another crappy pax while I’m on my own time? I took pool once and it was absolutely terrible.

Apples and oranges.

90/85 cents was including Uber commission. As of new agreement, they've just taken the commission off since the concept doesn't exist anymore.

When I am in rush, I don't mind it.
Sometimes there are some ahole drivers who are very rude though.

Are you saying you were part of the small pilot group of drivers who had Pool rates increased to X level? I was part of that group too, but I haven't taken a pool ride since Monday. If they changed it back for us, that'll suck.

That whole pay the same as uber x was only a pilot program with only randomly selecte drivers. In the email they sent it says it would last 8 weeks.
