    I wish that if the pick up location is beyond 5 miles that the app would inform if a ride would be longer than 15 minutes to help drivers decide whether a long drive to make a pick up is worth it. (Maybe destination info is an UberPro feature?) I know we get 45+ notifications regardless of...

    Why are all the early morning Lyft requests 15+ minutes away? I just drove 18 minutes to Tigard thinking I was getting a sweet 40 minute airport trip. It turned out to be a minimum fare (no bonus, no tip) with a customer complaining that three other drivers before me had cancelled them. 30...

    Drove for almost 4 hours this morning. Had a $60 donuts and coffee delivery and got paid $5.82. I mean WOW guys do I get free lube for taking orders that big and getting raped in every ORIFICE or what? Grub Hub is activated and all I have to do is go get my equipment. Do you guys even care...

    Has anyone had any long distance pick ups with Uber since 8/19/2018 and not been paid for the long distance portion? It happened to me twice and got this response. Unfortunately, we’re experiencing a minor technical issue that the long pickup fee is not applying correctly. We estimate this may...

    Crazy idea... Pay drivers the greater of: Base + pickup miles + pickup time or Base + dropoff miles + dropoff time ...... I am okay going 15 minutes for a .5 mile ride if I get paid regular rates for that 15 min pickup.

    I don't know about everyone else's market, but this past week has been brutal with the long distance requests. This is apparently the new "normal".. Because of this, I guess this will be my new normal Accept/cancel rates.. Earlier I declined 7 requests in a row that were over 10 minutes. 5...

    Seems a bit of an incentive for those long distance pick-ups. Well maybe not since it's only if they cancel.
  8. Toronto (Ontario)
    Around 5:30am I got back to back 20 minute+ which I ignored. Then came a 15 min one so I said let me accept so I don't hit my AR and call them to ask where they are going (hopefully downtown coz I live deep in Markham, where I was). I call the lady and she says she is going about 2 minutes away...
  9. Complaints
    So I have been driving for 2 weeks now. I am in an area that is new to Uber and does not have a whole lot of drivers. Sometimes demand is scarce as I will be online for an hour or more with no rides. However by far my larger complaint is long distance pickups. I was out driving the other evening...
