Reality of rideshare Day 1 of 1

Contrary to what one Uber lover thinks this is the reality. These companies are ripping us the drivers and the passengers off but no one does nothing about it. With gas at almost $3.50 a gallon and summer upon us I’m Done. With no surge,bonuses suck and pay decrease it is not worth it anymore. It will not be getting any better only worse once Uber goes public.

No surge? You must not work in Las Vegas. Plenty of surge last night on and off all night from 10pm-5am

I broke $300 on X without any kickbacks

You gotta love those 1-3 mile rides with surge attached that pay around $8-12 I had quite a few last night

I’m convinced that those who cry on this forum are under 35, just work and a lot of things will fall into place in life, also be happy and people will respond to you

So do you go back and see how much Uber took on that ride. This is the meaning of my post people were paying $45 from Aria to Charleston last night. You might have got $12-$15. Totally missing my point.

What you fail to realize is that if Uber or lift does not make money none of us will have this job. It’s their technology, not mine, I don’t care what they make off the ride. I collect my share and I go about my day

Same here. As long as I get paid I don’t really care how much Uber makes on the ride. If it’s not worth it I will quit driving.

I had a $45 ride out of Sam Boyd last night. Uber got $23 so they got roughly 1/3 of it.

No you misunderstood the numbers. Ride cost the rider $68 I got $45 Uber got $23

I checked most of my surged rides from last night. Uber averaged about a 33% take on them. It was between the 30-40%

If you came home and saw me in bed with your girlfriend/wife would you be very upset and feel cheated or would you be okay as long as she let you have a piece every now and then?

This is why it's hopeless here in Vegas. Too many drivers share this attitude. The reason drivers give up their Saturday nights while everyone else is out having a good time is to make a killing.

We risk our lives out here every night driving amongst a bunch of drunks and Vin Diesel wannabees. The majority of drivers don't even have health insurance. They are one accident away from bankruptcy. All we ask is give us our fair share for the risks we take and the sacrifices we make.

Uber is lucky Las Vegas is a tipping and kickback town. It's the only reason they are getting away with what they are getting away with.

My wife has culinary so no problem with insurance. We still get surges. I made $305 last night so I am satisfied. Not every weekend is busy like this but there are enough to make it worth it. Plus tips and KB potential make it viable still for some people.

I have an 11 month old. We both work Saturdays usually And before that she was pregnant of course so we really haven’t had many Saturday nights in the last few years. Our “Saturday nights” are usually during the week on a Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday

Well that explains why you guys are ok with giving up your Saturday. Some of us are single and enjoy the nightlife.

True. But that’s the beauty of the gig economy. You can choose to work when you want. In this town Saturday’s are usually the busiest and highest earning days. But it’s not like an employer. We choose our schedule.

I agree. There was a surge around 4 pm near the strip. Not sure, but it was near the Asian ------ (market? hotel? center?)
