My issue was when it went into effect, i had an early morning airport run, and had to agree to the terms to start the trip lol.

Like I have been saying for months, as well as posting the link, the Pax is the one with standing for a claim and a lawsuit for Pax has already been filed.

I do not think Drivers have standing for a claim.

Upfront Uber pricing scheme with the longer route to cheat Pax (as I have been stating)

I'd say up to about half the time here the Uber route is a long haul that the pax would be pissed if they knew they were charged based on it. I can't usually even take it because the pax will think I'm the one ripping them off.

It was one of the complaints once exclusively lodged against "shady taxi drivers" and is actually against city taxi regulations in Nashville and probably many other cities. Now it's common day practice for Uber.

The most common rip off is Uber routing around part of a city on an interstate because it's perhaps a minute faster but the fare might be twice as much. And the actual correct route, as almost every pax who knows the area expects, is just a simple straight line route on one street.

Here is a typical Uber Long Haul shown as default on the pax app (because it may be 2 minutes faster) followed by showing it in google maps versus the route you better take unless you want a huge customer backlash:

I think that I posted this before. 2 girls going 30 blocks straight down A1A. Only one short way to get there. @@@@@@@ cheating Uber had another route. My fee was about half of what Uber charged Pax. Like $7 for Pax and $3.50 for me. Karma is going to catch up to Uber. Karma is a @@@@@!!!

I wonder if that tootsies is the same people as the tootsies down here. Is that an establishment in Nashville where one may see some nipples?

No Nipples in Nashville, at least not at Tootsies there. But, once a guy sees one boob, he wants to see them all : )

If there is one, there should be 2 and I always want to make sure of it

A woman could have a breast removed because of cancer, or a girl may only be able to afford 1 breast implant while driving for uber for the other one and i would argue you only have 1.5 boob

How am I going to explain this to the IRS? Why is Uber seemingly incapable of just making honest money? Oh wait, because it's run by idiots.

I don't see how riders can have a claim. Uber is quoting them an upfront price which they are accepting by requesting the ride. There's no surprise charges that the rider wasn't aware of.

That's like me going to restaurant, reading the menu, ordering my meal, eating my meal and then complaining that my meal was too expensive.

It would be different if Uber was quoting the rider a $$$ per mile rate and then telling the driver to take a longer route. I don't see a legal case for riders with upfront pricing.

In Miami most of these drivers are content to be sheep or can't really speak English to be perfectly Frank don't expect us to ever work together. I hoped so but don't see it now

This is the third time that I posted the link below to the lawsuit filed by Pax. We agree to disagree regarding your points. Think Unjust Enrichment.

From Google:

Base fare: $0.95.
Booking fee: $2.2.
Cost per min: $0.13.
Cost per mile: $0.91.

Driver's have a claim based on the fact that Uber is setting the rates and then setting a different schedule as to how drivers are compensated. This is in direct contravention to their tos designation of being a pure intermediate or "agent" providing the means for two parties to do business and charging a % of that transaction.

Also it completely conflicts with the driver's designation of "independent contractor".
