    Uber played a great hand by deactivating drivers again for cancellations. Just like last time it'll scare drivers into accepting rides and giving cheap rides. Well played.

    Stay offline, even in the que.

    Everyone needs to tighten up their surge snipeing game so that we keep our rates of cancellations at lax low. Then they can't touch us.

    One of my pax caught on to the cancellation bump game. She got canceled at base rate after a couple of minutes and then had to reorder at 2.3x. Pax are complaining to Uber. That's why they are cracking down. Be very careful out there.

    You trusting that? Sounds a bit like a "please go away already", civil servant-style

    Spoken like a true pro. It is just a waiting mental game. That's what most of these yahoo's don't understand.

    Start doing Lyft just in case?

    It's done semi-alright by me when Uber last fired me

    Lol, that's not an option. Lyft is a worse choice.

    Lyft can be hustled for decent payouts too.

    Getting 20% fees back. Just gotta do the 85 rides, 25 power hour rides and 90% acceptance.

    If uber dropped me that's what I would do as quick as possible to see if it's feasible . Oh and tips at least .

    85/25 is pretty brutal, although a 24/7 1.28x boost is pretty useful

    The big problem will often be the 25, not the 85 though

    Mine is 65/20 (OC registration), I still end up farming shorties in LA when I don't wanna work crazy hours all freakin week

    LA rates hurt unless its primetiming, though. LA tips suck supremely, might as well not exist at all, and bigger tippers always do cash anyway

    You 2 do Lyft a lot?
    Have you ever noticed when you swipe/tap to start a ride that the PT percentage will display for a split second?
