WHY UBER POOL SHOULD BE AVOIDED

Very simple! Uber pools takes more time and the source of passenger drama. "can't you just take me around the block" Express Pool.....NO
" just live over there, can't you drop me off, then pick up the other passenger? I have to explain the express rules.
But the best reason to avoid Uber pools....You get paid with Uber X....$021 per minute and with Uber Pool....$0.15 per minute.

$0.21 per minute vs $0.15 per minute...Why should I, the Driver, subsidize Uber for offering discounts at my expense?

If they want drivers to take pool rides, they should pay a higher rate for each pax on the ride, starting with x rates. Uber would still make more money than single x rides and the drivers would have better reason to take them!

You forgot the best parts about poo ride:
1. If you are picking up three pax A, B and C, with A being the first pick up and last drop off, in the end you are only paid for A's fare, Uber basically pockets entire both B and C's fare.

2. Instead of getting one 1 star from pax, you can get three 1 stars from individual riders from a poo ride!

the best part is when the rando pax start to argue or otherwise get cringey during the bus ride.

If you have a decent flat surge and decent bonus for extra pickups, plus additional credit toward quest, it doesn’t suck so bad. It more than makes up for the 6 cents a minute loss from UberX

Why wont these cheapskates take the bus? Try asking the bus driver to go to their destination. I hate how they pay bus fare and not want to walk to and from the bus stop.

Whenever I need a boost with my rating I take a pool ride. I get 3 five stars after completing a pool ride.

Surge? What's that?

How long did it exactly took you to come up with this ?!!!
I bet no one else thought about it before.
