    Ok excluding the obvious
    1 Tipping Option
    2 Rates

    What are the things you feel Would make Uber Driving More worthwhile for the drivers. For once I want to end the Year with solutions and not just whining . If someone see a problem , Please mention it and follow it with a SOLUTION!!!

    Together we can get some change but by only whining with out offering a solution then there is no hope!

    I kind of see solutions but I don't see the problems on some of them. We need the problems stated and then the solution

    I thought you asked for suggestions of things that Uber could do to make the platform more worthwhile for drivers. Forget I said anything.

    Problem: passenger's Final destination that uber hide to drivers,it's a safety issue that many passengers face since the driver might be fatigued and drowsy and then the very last ping the driver has to go far away without it knowing its final destination putting at risk not only the passenger and the drivers life, but also the public sharing the road.
    Also many drivers get bored and fall asleep in the wheel while driving long distances.(not only senior drivers)
    Solution: create a board of ride requests and show drivers how far to pickup and how far to destination,not exact address to avoid not picking up in the Less fortunate neighborhoods,but to allow drivers to Cherry pick their rides just so whoever doesn't like to drive long distances doesn't have to.

    Totally agree with rider destination masking. It is a clear example that we are employees and not independent contractors.

    Obviously you care, but the problem is the company that we don't even work for does not care about the drivers it doesn't have. The only solution is to go on strike. In Tampa when their rates were low, the drivers would shut off their apps until it surged. I was sitting at the ritz and got a pool ping for the ritz, I didn't accept and a few minutes later a BMW pulls in. I get out and ask the guy, why would you accept a pool fools in a BMW to boot. He was a Haitian with a white shirt aND tie on. If we can't unite there is no solution.

    I once had faith in Uber in 2014. They've had plenty of opportunities to run a reputable business. I'm no sheep.

    Problem: Often times wait hours for an XL / Lux ping.

    Solution: STOP on boarding new drivers. Put a cap for the number of drivers on each platform.

    Keep hiring any X driver who will sign up. I've heard lots of horror stories from my passengers and have 3 of my own out of the last 5 trips as a passenger. My Lux passengers tell me they tried X but will never X again.

    Problem: with the destination filter on, sometimes I end up with round trip requests.

    Solution: round trip requests should be announced upfront.

  18. You guys realize this is an excercise in futility, don't you?

    You got yourself involved with a predatory company with no regard for the law
    or the very people it claims to benefit.

    This global Ponzi scheme is not designed to last. Those at the top will suck every dime out and bail.

    The only way to make positive changes with this outfit is to dig deeper into your
    pockets and give regulators fatter payoffs than Uber does.

    Travis, his lieutenants and politicians. They make the dough. You suck wind.

    Whenever I get a rider who wants to go elsewhere, I always tell them I can only drop them off at their original location and I explain to them about the destination filter. Had to do this 4-5 times and never had an issue so far.

    Wait till you have a nasty rider. I had once. She threatened with a bad rating and a bad review, and said that she will report me to Uber. I asked her to call uber's toll free complain line. LOL
