Hey fellow drivers :smiles:

I wanted to compare the two cities as far as ride demand and compensation between SD and SF.

SF -

Demand is pretty good (even though there are a lot of drivers in the road), especially in the mornings and evening rushes. SF has bonus in place as follows..

Bonus:

30 rides per week (extra $50)
50 rides ($100)
80 rides ($225)
100 rides ($350)
120 rides ($500)

Guarantee Pay:

7-9am - $40-$45/hr (2 ride min. per hour)
5-7p - same

Weekends - 5-11p

-------------

How is it in San Diego? Are there bonus in place or guarantees?

Sure, here's a quick comparison for you:

San Francisco is one of the BEST markets in the country, and San Diego
is one of the WORST.

San Francisco: $500 for 120 rides + nice $45/hr guarantees

San Diego: $45 for completing 45 rides, ZERO hourly guarantees, and all the
$3.20 POO rides you can stomach.

It's obvious this gig is becoming a game of the HAVE's and the HAVE NOT's.

For the HAVE's, market's like LA, San Fran, Boston and New York, this gig
WORKS. Juicy guaranteed hourly rates, and killer incentives (like Double pay
and more) make it worthwhile.

The drivers in the HAVE NOT markets, Like San Diego and Detroit, work their
tails off for next to nothing in order to subsidize the juicy bonuses and guarantees
for all of the HAVE markets, like yours.

Are we bitter?

Hell no!

I get offered hourly guarantees up to 30 bucks a hour and I drive X. I have not done any driving in the last 20 days and started getting the guarantee two weeks ago. Have to accept 90% of all rides and do at least 1 ride a hour and 2 hrs online. It keeps sliding upwards during the day or sometimes downwards for the amount of the guarantee. Until 2pm 20 hour, 2 -5 18 hr. I think I will work this weekend to grab some of the 20 or 30 a hour, do a ride get the hell back to my new home where I get zero pings. Left the app on for 3 hours yesterday not one ping. Seems this area I live now is dead for people needing pickups, unlike where I lived in Point Loma it never stopped pinging.

In other words, you can't compare Apples to Oranges!

On the bright side, I dropped somebody off at Las Americas Premium outlet Mall by the border today and it just so happens that our Friends @ Uber have a tent set up there trying to recruit a new army of Ants.

They had signs everywhere saying Uber ...

And I sat and watched for about 15 minutes and Not one single Ant in sight getting recruited.

They were just sitting there baking in the sun ... I guess not even Mexican Ants wanna mess around with Uber anymore.

Emailed uber asking if they would take me off pool. I explained it's not profitable for me and this was their response.

Happy to clarify.

BLACK and SUV partners activated after February 23, 2015 will now receive uberPOOL requests in addition to uberX, UberBLACK and UberSUV requests. As demand for uberPOOL grows and uberPOOL trips tend to be longer than uberX trips, uberPOOL allows you to achieve greatest earnings potential. uberPOOL rates are the same as uberX rates but the trips are longer, the fares are higher, and you'll have less down time between trips.

  • uberPOOL fares for trips with multiple pick-ups are on average $16 higher than uberX trips
  • uberPOOL trips with multiple pick-ups are on average 36 minutes and 8 miles longer than uberX trips
Please let me know if you have any further questions and I would be happy to assist further.

Demand for POO is growing because you are shoveling it down everyone's throats.

Not because it's a better option.

As for the "uberPOOL trips tend to be longer" crap, that has to do with the
scam way you present POO vs X pricing inside the App.

Misrepresenting the service provided by your 'independent contractors'?

Sounds like yet another potential lawsuit.

I turned down a POO ride out of the airport because the entitled idiot was going 4 miles away.
He sent me a text after I had him cancel saying that one of the Uber managers here in San Diego was his neighbor and he was gonna report me.
I told him to have his neighbor send him a black car next time instead of ordering POO for a 4 miles ride.

Ya when you email uber it sounds like a bunch of copy and paste scripts.

I emailed them earlier with a few questions and didnt really even answer anything, just a script reply.

Now, when I repeat my Pool opt-out requests, I only get a form-letter response "this issue has been resolved."
