    Be ready to devalue your time even more as you make stops at Rotten Ronnie's on your rides for your pax.

    "Each destination will update automatically in your app and your fares will continue to include time and distance rates on trips with multiple stops."

    "Your fares will continue to include time and distance rates on trips with multiple stops, and you’ll be paid for any time you spend waiting at each stop. Riders know that each stop should be less than 3 minutes, so you can get back on the road as soon as possible."

    It's like they are making this experience beneficial in every way possible for them(Uber) and the pax, we have absolutely no leverage, benefit or incentive other than being paid a disproportionate amount for the service we provide. "180 days of change" is what you will earn driving for Uber.

    I'm kidding though, I still make money, I just want more lol.

    You gonna cancel when you sitting in Rotten Ronnie's drive-thru for 20 minutes at 3am with 4 drunk pax? good luck

    That's $10.80/hour bro, i could retire off that. Get me a nice box to sleep in under the Gardiner by Lakeshore and Bathurst. A man can only dream.

    luckily this won't affect zokipoki. as zoki's first stop is his last, no exceptions. 'sorry bro, i have another pickup'

    With this feature is the first destination still calculated using upfront pricing, then additional stops calculated by time/km? Or is every stop, including first destination calculated by time/km?

    3 minute rule will be enforced then, lol. Off the hook for drive thrus and grocery shopping.. Basically to drop off someone/something. It could be worse.

    i've had the opportunity to test it in the summer. they just add a stop and uber charges them normally. only issue is wait time and noone likes to wait with the current rates. but since rates will go up shortly, it may be worth a 5 minute wait, assuming is not a busy time.
