    Because you only get 25%.
     
  4. All your entitled to is 79c a mile 12c a minute (much higher than some cities by the way), while uber is entitled to charge whatever it wants for whatever reason it wants.

    The rider paid exactly what they should have for a 7 mile fare. You're the one driving for chump change.

  10. My recent experience has been that Uber will always give me a share adjustment so that I make slightly more than 50% on all fares, surge and non surge. My market is minimum fare $3, but I always get more with Uber, regardless of how short the ride is. With Lyft, they still pay $3. I have seen my surge almost double with the share adjustment. We get less $.60 per mile and $.11 a minute, but gas is 1.89 right now.

    Next time long haul and u will get more..

    I might add this is why there is no surge this week cause Uber decided to take 75% off everyones runs this week. They need to start showing a profit to the board members cause so far they haven’t made JACK S^%T.

    It’s for this reason Uber has the highest turnover rate for any job in the country. Worse than McDonalds x3. Uber used to take only 18% imagine that!

    And they still cannot turn a profit. Uber no IPO this year also. They are done...

  17. Personally I think Sugar fires Dara first. Can't believe he just sits back and does nothing while his company (make no mistake, Sugar is the "owner", Dara is just the "GM", but because he had face from Expedia he is the front-man) loses billions year after year.

    Eventually Uber will remove the "rider pays" and "Uber receives" info. That will keep the ants happy.
