    Next email soon. $3.50. Min. 10 cents min. .85 mile. Dallas ft worth market. It is a joke ! Really hurts ! Surge is your only hope or just move on with your life. UBER thinks we are all so desperate for $$. Maybe is S E Asia but not in USA. Many customers that pay 4 or 5 bucks should tip $5 bucks then we could survive. But tips are included correct ?

    I am going to tell these entitled phuques of ASU students that I will drive them from Point A to Point B ...if they want a third stop added to it, they have to complete the first trip and request another ride for the second trip...I almost got screwed yesterday on a passenger calling Uber and telling them I took an inefficient route (per their request to do so)

    it's impossible to double the number of trips you do per hour. Uber has no limit to the number of trips per hour their system can handle. For a driver in a metro area 20-25 paid miles per hour is about as good as it's gonna get for them.

    Yeah those rates aren't going to help. Most of the customers I pickup think it's already cheap lowering the rates seems like an act of desperation. At some point it's no longer worth it for drivers. I'm near that point...

    This is crazy! .90 cents a mile? Most Uber clients think the rates are unethical already. Its funny how Uber lowered the rates, but the safety fee is still the same, their 20% fees also remain the same.

    How about this instead Uber?
    • Higher Prices = Better Quality Riders
    • Better Quality Riders = Increased Tips
    • Increased Tips = No need for more Trips
    • No need for more Trips = Happier Drivers
    Ahhh the crazy **** Uber will come up with...
