    None of that means anything. Everything that Uber lists as a rider fee is an estimate. They make it clear that if the route changes or there are delays the total fare can change. What the rider sees as the fee is routinely adjusted after the drop off just the same as filling up at a gas station where they do a $50 authorization but you get charged for what you actually pump.

    No, this is the price you pay unless there is a significant change in the route or a prolonged stop. If the trip goes normally, this is what you are charged. it's not an estimate it's a quote from a to b.

    Or if the drop off location gets changed in the app.

    Seriously? SF bay area went to 25% in 2014. Only those who signed up before Sept 2014 stayed at 20%. Except a few of us who had silly account issues and ended up at 25%.

    You just need to check your service fee addendum for current rate.

    IN SF bay area UberX was 5% in 2014 and went up 5 at a time over the following months.

    So that's how Uber enticed the drivers. What did X start out in San Fran? Our X rate in Phoenix started at $2.25 and Uber's take was 20%.

    But it is what you agreed to and again your little contract that everybody agreed to when they updated stated that you will be paid a flat fee on a per mile and per minute basis minus a booking fee and 20-25% less Uber fee..........regardless of what the pax pays....nowhere in the contract does it state you will be paid 75-80% of what pax pays......another member states this earlier in another post......and he proved it to 2 or 3 members in the thread....so how is that robbery?...or theft?...or dishonest?........it's always a gamble when you pick up pax.......be like people losing at a casino saying "casino robbed/stole from me"

    It's called "white gloves robbery " . Now, you seam to have a lot of atracción for Travis de CEO of the biggest scammer company.
    And you probably you are so uneducated that don't realize the abuse that Uber is doing to the drivers.

    No not at all I have absolutely no feelings about Uber I just don't understand why people would destroy their own cars for whatever Uber wants to throw their way and let Uber steal from them........I collect exact amount from pax every time I end trip and don't have to worry and double check what I am paid........cuz I know what I am paid cuz I am the only one that deals with pax......no other f'ed up company........I was just saying whoever thinks they are getting screwed probably are but it's their own fault cuz they agreed to it whenever they log on.........read your contract......and about me being uneducated?.....not at all cuz I am a true professional driver not destroying my car for some f'ed company...namely Uber

    That is worse than the "Lyft Leeches" 20%. 5 % would be more than fair. Pure parasites.

    40%? 35%? Proof? If uBer is truly taking over 1/3 of fares everyone should stop driving for them immediately.

    Maybe the poster is looking at total percentage? But then, 35% is not enough. Even if it were 20%, you still have 25% operational costs, 15% self employment tax, there is 60% already, not considering any city or state taxes due at the end of the year. And some say a taxi costs too much?
