    In fact, Uber might have retroactively jacked up the commission to 25% for All Drivers, even those who started at 20% before 09/02/14.

  3. See this is what regulators do, they wait for greedy scumbags to rip off the public so the public supports nasty regulation, then the drivers get ****ed. Thanks UBER.

    They complain about driver retention problems, but jack up what they take from the drivers.

    The rumour here is that new drivers are paying twenty-five per-cent, but I am still trying to confirm that. The jack-up in the "Safe Ride Fee" is something that I expect, as well.

    I just rec'd first check last week w/$3.10 taken out for Passenger fee. Going back to look at contract.

    <EDIT: SRF was $3.10 - $1.55 per rider. I paid UBER 20.6% on fares.>

    Thank you for confirming that New Drivers in Savannah are still at 20% commission.

    The subject of New Drivers in many markets paying 25% commission is being looked in detail at by a reporter. I started this thread for the benefit of this reporter since Uber is not being forthcoming with this info.

    Some numbers of mine from last night:

    Surge fare
    Fare: 10.29 + 11.32 = 21.61
    My cut: 16.21 (75%)
    Uber fee: 5.40



    Non surge fares
    Fare: 18.87
    My cut: 14.15 (75%)
    Uber fee: 4.72

    Fare: 7.45
    My cut: 5.59 (75%)
    Uber fee: 1.86

    Fare: 8.26
    My cut: 6.20 (75%)
    Uber fee: 2.06

    Yep, confirmed that Uber is taking 25%

    I had a couple ask me, "Don't you guys make a lot of money!? Don't you get like 90% of the fare?"!

    Me: No, I wish - that would be nice! We actually get 75% and still have to pay gas costs and wear & tear.

    Uber Raises UberX Commission To 25 Percent In Five More Markets
    http://www.forbes.com/sites/ellenhu...ommission-to-25-percent-in-five-more-markets/

    New drivers may not even know that they’re getting a worse deal than the people driving on the same streets as them. When Uber started testing a 30% commission, Luke, a San Francisco driver, told FORBES he didn’t realize his handicap until Uber texted him that he was close to getting enough rides to move to a 25% commission for the week. (The system is tiered.)

    “I was confused — I thought it was 20%,” said Luke, who didn’t want to give his full name for fear of retaliation from Uber. “I started looking online and everywhere I saw said 20%, so I was like, ‘What’s going on?’”

    I thought it was bad enough in my market. They seriously need to raise the prices up a little bit.
