Premium fare potential


New Member
Has anybody else seen the "premium fare potential" when they are getting pinged? I have had it happen at least 6 or 7 times in the last 2 weeks. Fares seem to be better. It does tend to happen on riders that are well outside of the downtown/IU area. This is definitely different than the long trip 45-plus minutes or more notification.

It’s hit or miss. Sometimes around 2 dollars otherwise nothing. I usually never accept a ride longer than 4 mins away. Otherwise your profit takes huge hit. Drivers around Bloomington definitely need to stop accepting non-surge rides that are far away. There is tons of good info on this in the advice and complaints section of this forum

I've seen this too. Kind of scratched me head after each one of them. It says possible premium but turns out to be a turd.
