fare cuts

  1. Complaints
    I should have known better and not have wasted my time on an out of state trip. Basically there is not compensation for doing this and drivers pretty much get paid less than the actual mileage of the trip. Never again! I would have scored better by just driving in the city.

    Which of the following Uber program is their worst lie? Let's hear it people!!!
  5. Burlington
    I hearby declare Burlington, VT to be a dead market. There is no real hope for a surge after 3pm, and during peak times in the evenings now there are so many drivers you are lucky to score a string of two 3 or 4 dollar rides within an hour. In the mornings the surge is there only when drivers...

    When I started in August 2015 it was $1.60 a mile and 30 cents a minute. It was cut to $1.60 and 25 cents a minute in latter September. It is now late March and as of today we are cut to $1.18 per mile and 20 cents a minute. They put in those temporary guarantees once again but they always find...

    ****! Damn it to hell! We just got cut from $1.60 per mile to $1.18. It was $2 when I started in August. Of course they are putting in the phony guarantees that won't last long. This is absolute shit.

    Passengers don't even know about it and the ones I've talked to about it think rates were too low! Downtown passengers love Uber (and Lyft for that matter). Since Lyft seems to be more driver friendly, might just drive for them, less wear and tear on car for more money makes sense to me. Seems...

    So now that they have cut the fares in Burlington and have also removed guarantees are you guys actually making more money or less? I have been consistently making less since the cut even with guarantees in place.

    Just ran across this 2014 Driving for Hire documentary on YouTube. Made in San Francisco, home of Uber. Very informative and enlightening for Uber, Lyft, and other TNC/VFH drivers everywhere. 1 hour 25 minutes, well worth your time. Happy Trails...
