    There's actually 2 things that contribute to getting a lower cut.

    with the booking fee, short fares can hit an excess of 50% going to uber.

    $5.50 min trip
    -1.85 (booking fee)
    3.65

    3.65 X .75=
    2.73

    2.73/5.50= 49%

    The other way is far slimier with up front pricing.

    Passenger gets charged 12.84
    You are told the passenger was charged 10.17

    10.17-
    1.85

    8.32
    X .75
    $6.24

    $6.24/ 12.84= 48%

    Uber taking 25 percent plus base or ride fees which is $1.7 to $2 depond on the area, if the the ride fare show in your app 4$ , actually it 5.7$ or 6$ , you got 3$ , uber take 50 percent. If the fare was 10$ ,actually it's 11.7 or 12$ ,brief ,uber taking from 30 percent to 50 percent, the more ride is short the more percentage they took is higher. 4 pax all the times expecially on weekend$ ,we compete with busses , 4 pax $1.5 each, 6$ ,the cub charge 10$-30$ uber charge 5.7$ - 10$ , the price goes up to 1/3 . without considering uber ghost pourcentage. ..think twice before driving, if you are in a town or area which is the rate are no less $1.2 and 25 cents per min , do not drive ,just you kill your car , you have to spend 10$ gas to get 50$ , car maintenance is 35-45 cents a mile including gas . After uber deductions if you get 1$ a mile, that's 70 cent - 35 or 45 cent maintenance, you get 35 cents left or left ,- TAX, May be you ended with 10 cents A mile, so you just destroying your car and working for free , so minimum has to be 1.2-or 1.3 and 25 cents a min , 5$ cancellation right away, or 10 $ cancellation fees after 5 min , so u can survive lol ,other than that not worth it .plus pax must Tips since the rates are very low, no tips pax is nice 4 stars, no tips pax is ok 3stars, no tips pax annoying 1 star and report and block
