Where are the Ride Austin Riders?

This has been my worst RA week in history.

I have to wonder if the surge was too high and discouraged usage or if I'm in time out for some reason.

I've had a LOT of Uber passengers ask about RA having thought it no longer existed. I picked up door signs early in the week and know they have signed up a lot of new passengers but I've not been getting the rides.

Anyone having a good experience with them last night?

I picked up a few out-of-towners who chose RA at the airport, mostly because they liked supporting local biz ... (2 premium & 1 SUV).

Yeah,
RA seems to be fading from memory.
Big problem is they're not generating new paxes and the old ones don't use rideshares like they used to.

Also lots of "crappy" drivers - I lost track of how many people asked me if I was from Austin before they got in the car ... I guess there were a lot of "lost" drivers working during ACL.

Had 5 trips on RA today all within a few hours.
Two of them were 1st time visitors.

RA should hire some hot chicks/guys at busy times to promote RA and show the pricing difference.
They can explain to pax how bad U/L are screwing the drivers and the pax with high rates and low pay.
