    After a $95 fare for an hour + ride today, the driver shared she was getting $49, I did the math: pay for the driver only 48%?! :( Are they trying to make money for shareholders they’ll never see? Taking from their money-making base is a rookie IPO move, aka stupid.

    I've spoken to several drivers and it seems that since Lyft stopped paying any surge here, drivers just won't turn on the app. I would love to hear thoughts about why people are still doing both, as it seems Uber is paying/treating drivers much better here.

    I'm sure y'all ha e been following this back and forth with Uber and MIT after a working group at the University posted a study that stated Uber/Lyft drivers average $3.31/hour. After vehement denials and attacks by various Uber Execs the MIT Professor in charge agreed to use the data that Uber...

    On average I make between $10-12 per trip when I factor in promotions. It’s pretty consistent with Uber and Lyft. I was wondering were everyone else’s results similar.

    RideWithVIA is in NYC, DC and Chicago. Supposedly, like uberPOOL with better driver pay and without the problems that Uber and Lyft introduced when they stole the idea. Has anybody driven for RideWithVIA? What did you think? Would you recommend it to other drivers or not? Is it better, worse or...

    UPDATED information here. _______ You may already know that Uber increased their Booking Fee nationwide on July 8, 2017. Drivers do not get any piece of the booking fee. :mad: This was the 3rd increase in 2017. Not all locations received the same increase. NY State outside of NYC was opened up...

    Uber appears to be rolling out the 3rd booking fee increase this year, with a corresponding minimum fare increase. I expect Lyft to match the Uber Booking Fee increase soon. It's 40 cents for XL and 50 cents for XL and premium. For UberX: In February, from $1.30 to $1.65 then $1.65 to $1.80 Now...

    Just curious if xl and select drivers have noticed a "larger" service fee, than the 28-30% uber used to collect. Wondering if it's just the poo and x passengers that are paying more to uber after the new driver admendment?
  16. Advice
    Do you think Uber, Lyft and the others do a good job in reducing the amount of unloaded miles driven by each driver in a work day?

    Do not expect the drivers to get any benefit whosoever since on May 22nd, Uber discarded the previous relationship between what riders pay and what drivers earn. It's "Upfront Pricing" on steroids. Bloomberg May 26 2017 by Lisa Fleisher and Timothy Coulter There's a New Spin on Surge Pricing...

    The ride-hailing giant is using data science to engineer a more sustainable business model, but it's cutting drivers out from some gains. Uber drivers have been complaining that the gap between the fare a rider pays and what the driver receives is getting wider. After months of unsatisfying...

    Today, Uber has a far larger market share that Lyft. Lyft has recently been making significant progress increasing its market share primarily because of Uber's seemingly endless negative publicity. However, that has obvious limits and may end anytime that Uber chooses to alter key policies and...
