Double check to make sure you are getting properly paid on Pool rides that aren't matched. I've caught a few and know others who have as well. Send an email to support to get it fixed.
Weird. I just checked a few of my recent small/min fare pool rides, and they're all coming in as $4+ before uber cut). Now, I'm confused..I just went to Uber's LA office and they did confirm the minimum pool ride pays out only $0.80 cents and X2 Surge only pays $1.60... normal uber no surge pays $2.40... never doing pool again
Minus Uber's fee of $5.72
Uhm that needs to be $48.15. If their Uber Pool product is causing them to lose money, then they need to scrap it; not pay the drivers less. If that's what they quoted the pax, then that's great for the pax. But your rates are $1 per mile and .18 cents per minute, so pay me accordingly. Sorry, I'm kind of all over the place, I'm preparing what I'm gonna email them when this happens to me. Because I'm sure as hell going to do a pool ride, reject 2nd pax, and see if they do this. There was no announcement saying they were going to pay me less on Pool rides, in fact, the last pool ride email I received specifically states that I will be paid regular X rates even if no 2nd pickup is made.
Officially cheaper than bus...wow this is depressing. Not like I needed anymore of a reason to hate pool rides but this is @@@@ing bullshit.
Total BS. Find their own e mail where it states,
I told them that. We aren't supposed to be taking the hit if the ride isn't matched. I took a route that didn't go out of the way, made no stops, and completed the job.
