Would be OK with me. However, how do you define "quit"? Minimum hours required per month? What happens when a series of 10 hour a week drivers get replaced by 60 hour a week drivers? Gets kind of complicated when every driver can jump in and out of the app at will....
Perhaps if you don't drive for 2 weeks and you are booted? I think anyone could do 2 drives per month.. if they can't oh well.. they must bigger things going on to worry about Ubering. They can always get back on the waiting list.
They say the average driver quits after 6 months. High enough attrition of make a waiting list move right along.
Well I'll let you know!
I haven't driven since April 7th. The times I have available to ride share have become so over saturated that I'm waiting 45 minutes between rides. Taking out a car seat and cleaning mountains of goldfish crackers isn't worth the $30 I'd make in the short window my kid's in school.
I scheduled myself to rideshare next week Thursday and Friday- let's see if I can log in!
I think they could deactivate anyone they want for lack of participation. How that would be defined might be point of debate. But I don’t think Uber has any obligation to maintain a relationship with a person that seldom drives.
However, there is no benefit to cutting otherwise good drivers free. A deep pool of drivers is good for them, even if many of those in the pool seldom drive. That allows them to have a high probability of available drivers during major events – which keeps overall fairs lower for customers. If I was them, I would be happy to have a ton of extra drivers that only drive when a major sporting event, festival, or concert is in town. Cost them almost nothing to allow folks that fit that profile to stay active on the platform and Uber benefits in a huge way by keeping service level up for customers.
