Okay, well Tuesday was horrible, and Wednesday was horrible, so I didn't bother driving Thursday. And Friday I had a company event which involved drinking, so I didn't drive Friday evening. Even with the horrible showings during the week I still ended up okay.
Gross $/hr: $24.50
What is an ant? Someone who drives for base, among other things. Well, that's everyone in Portland now, I think.
2nd week of January, tracking driving stats
30+ rides on each platform. My ratio was exactly 50/50, which is strange since I often gave heavy preference to Uber (due to the $3...
Okay people, here are my stats for last week:
* since no one else has mentioned they are tracking anything, there's no point in me explaining how to get the numbers.
* these numbers are from Jan 1st thru Sunday night. they do NOT include NYE, which I already reported in a separate thread...
A few times now I have tracked numbers for a month and posted them here week by week.
Has anyone found this useful?
Does anyone want to track numbers with me? Was thinking of 4 weeks of tracking, starting with Monday.
If no one gives a crap I will quit wasting cyberspace with my stats.
Good morning fellow ants! My 4th and final weekly report is here. Last week I was sick so I imagine my ratings and tips were negatively affected, but I drove anyway. There was a bit more dead time on Friday (a full hour before my first acceptable ping) but Sat and Sun were okay.
I got a pax...
Good day! Last week was another slow week, kind of. I did more dead driving than I wanted, and I had Lyft turned off during the rare Uber surges. I put in serious full time late night Fri and Sat, doing 14 and 15 hour days. Here are my stats for the week.
16 in app tips
One heck of a hot week, it was. More of the same this week. I was really pissed at Lyft that first day, so the ride count is slightly skewed in favor of Uber, but not much. Lyft gave me a 31 minute ride, then swapped me out for a shortie. So I spent 3 hours accepting Lyft pings and ignoring...
Lyft pissed me off, and Uber had okay surge going on for one of the weekend nights, so I did more Uber on purpose. Here are my stats, naturally these are all pre-expense numbers I am quoting.
3 cash tips
23 in app tips
36% of rides tipped me
2 paid cancellations
5 surges of 1.5 or...
Starting next week I will post some ride stats. Last time I did this I got a few compliments, some people found it very informative. If anyone else wants to join me in tracking and posting, feel free.
Things to keep track of:
# of rides on each app
# of in app tips on each
# of cash tips on...
As I post these I am even more and more convinced that there is something else at work with the Lyft matching algorithm. I run both apps evenly, and my Ignore criteria is the same on both apps for the most part.
Jan 15th thru 21st
In app tippers (not $)
Here are some of my weekly stats from the 1st to the 7th:
4 paid cancellations
31 in app tippers
No idea how many surge rides, only 1 comes to memory
0 paid cancellations
10 in app tippers
1 surge ride
0% cxl rate
Cash tips? Don't remember, did not...
Uber claims it calculates acceptance rates and declines based on your "past 500 trip requests."
My current acceptance rate declined in the past 2 days from 70% to 40%. I've declined maybe 12 rides, 15 max in the past 2 days, each time my acceptance rate declines 2% per missed request. To...
I've been looking for a thread that asks all the drivers here how many rides they've given, but I couldn't find one. I'd love to get an idea of who we are, what we're doing, and how far we're taking this "thing" we call "rideshare".
Although I am very competitive, this isn't intended to be a...
