EVERY SINGLE UBER POOL TRIP USES MADE UP NUMBERS.

Don't believe me? As for a break down of why you got paid as little as you did and watch the. Umbers they send you be VASTLY different than the trip details in the app.
 
Don't worry.. same thing happened to me this morning. I did two uber pools from Queens to Columbus circle and said I was paid like $3 per ride then when I checked instant pay it was $27. I think Uber is updating how it looks on our driver platform. Keep your eyes open though for any tricks! lol

Why is it so hard for you guys to accept the Pool ping, right after accepting stop new incoming request. You'll get paid as an X...common sense.

Was there another trip in the dashboard associated to that trip?
Yes, a $14 ride I dropped off a few miles after that. It was early in the morning no traffic and took me less than a half hour to complete this pool so it actually wasn't that bad.

You get paid for the miles and minutes you did at the Pool rate. It's not that difficult. The entire chain from first pickup to last drop off was a certain distance for a certain number of minutes. In many markets, the Pool rate is a few cents below the X rates. The trip reports show the time & distance that particular rider was in the car for. That's not what you get paid for. If you have two riders that both went 4 miles each, but they road together for 3.5 miles, with rider A having a solitary half mile at the beginning, and rider B having half mile at the end, That's just 4 miles for you. You don't get paid for 8 miles cuz you only drove 4 miles. Though each rider's report will say 4 miles, but the pay will be half. You get paid for 4 miles at the Pool rate in your market.. This is publicly available information.

You don't get it paid as an X. You get paid at the Pool rate. Common sense isn't all that great since people are commonly wrong. You can badger support about an unmatched pool trip and every once in a while get it adjusted to the X rate, but I've only succeeded at that like 1 in 10 times. And it takes several back & forth tries. It's not worth the time, sicne it's only going to get you a dollar or 3 each time you succeed.

Wait, I didn't know that pool's rate is different then X. So what are the rates per mile and per min for the pool trips?

You can't do it with Lyft as there is no button "stop new requests" in Lyft app and if you don't accept line requests then you will not get PDB. In order to get bonuses your weekly acceptance rate should be at least 90%.

First Pool ping (rider) pays X fare. If the rider is lucky enough to randomly find a driver that already has a first Pool rider in the vehicle then that second (or third) rider will be paying the "imaginary math fare".

This is my understanding.
