Drivers in L.A., Orange Co., Inland Empire, Ventura, Palm Springs can now shut off automatic Uber pricing and switch to 'Set Your Own Fares' mode. You name your price (1.1x, 1.7x...5.0x whatever you want) and when a rider requests a ride, the app sends your 'ride quote' back to them in a $ amount. Rider accepts or declines your quote. Good thing we have potential to make more money of course, bad thing is they're pitting us against each other in a bidding war now. I drove for a bit after my regular FT job, and noticed many more drivers out now than past month or so. Guess we'll see how it plays out...if it lasts.
