My Toyota which has barely been driven for a year will return to service. How has earnings been? Does anyone use the multiplier and does it work for you? I...

    I need some input before I decide how much time to invest calling support. Is the commission for both X and Comfort supposed to be the same? I pay 20% for X and Uber's taking 28% for Comfort. The result is I actually earn less on Comfort than X. Did they screw up or are the percentages supposed...

    Why are you still driving? I have my car patched together and trying to find any logic in riding this car at 188k till it stops, and with the continued work that needs to be done so far still no profit. Did you just get new cars and continue through the rate cuts? Or did you somehow continue...

    Ants, I feel all of the frustration from the ants stemming from pay rates and I do believe pay is too low to be profitable in the long run. I would like to have a thoughtful conversation around this topic instead of ranting with system 1 knee-jerk commentary about simply raising rates as if that...

    Hey everyone, Is anyone else having this issue, just got a trip on my way home and when I checked the details I see Uber is already using the new rates, wasn't this suppose to change until the 16th? I submitted a ticket to support, I'll keep this post updated if anyone is interested.

    Called support, said there was an issue, but they are working to correct it. Of course this was right before 1. No requests were coming through, and absolute joke last night. It was obvious the system was messed up, and of course support is no support. Maybe this the secrete behind the new surge...

    Uber pays different rates to different drivers within the same rate area. I know this from speaking with drivers while I've been a passenger. With all of the shenanigans Uber's been doing to pay us less, we should really compare rates. Here's the detail on what I got tonight for a ride from...

    Check any ride at any time for the direct impact on your earnings. Uber is grabbing a larger share of the passenger fare on fast long hauls. Uber's percentage increases the closer you get to one mile per minute, All other rides are just NOISE in the final analysis. #########

    After a long chat with someone at the hub today, I found some very interesting insight into the ways uber changes driver pay. I actually spoke with someone who was a driver previously and he was definitely on my side when I complained about the driver pay decrease. He said that he saw this...

    With Uber's new "pay rates" they'll be taking a heck of a lot more when you take Hiawatha. Anywhere from 5-20% and over the long run this will cost you dearly. So maximize you pay and take 35w EVERY TIME! When you're solo of course take the less traffic way but even with traffic take passengers...

    Uber's reasoning to create a more consistent comp plan is fundamentally a crock of poop since successful drivers tailor their driving pattern to the style that works for them. For example, my focus has always been on the greatest distance with the least amount of time. My ideal airport run is...
