too many drivers

  1. Los Angeles & Orange County
    Why are you guys accepting even a SINGLE ride for less than 1.3x surge??? You clowns are ruining it for us. Their choice is pay us what we want(a respectable pay) or hope the next driver is stupid enoufh to give them a better price(guess what most of you will) i can do 3 rides and still make...

    See this? It's SURGING. That's what should happen. Before you head out to chase a $15.00 CTB in 90 minutes, consider this: How many rides from Fidi at 1.5x, might it take you to earn $15.00 ABOVE base? How long? Then consider: How long will it take for you to complete that streak today? How...

    So I’ve been doing UberEATS for about 6 months now, not old enough to Uber. In my prime, I was able to get upwards of 20 deliveries a day. In the last month, I’ve been lucky to get about 10. So my question is, do you think that the Uber/UberEats system is over-crowded in Virginia Beach? I am...

    This communique landed in my inbox from The Mothership. https://www.uber.com/en-CA/blog/toronto/earth-day-2018-ca/ Your comments please... Now you know why we wait so long for our next fare and why surge is dead

    Went to the Lyft Hub here the other day. It was completely empty!! I was the ONLY non-employee there, for a good 20 minutes! No other drivers needing help, no one getting car inspections done, no one filling out paperwork or signing up or taking online tests. Hooray!! Maybe the tide is turning.
  6. Miami
    Last two weeks have been slow, feels like summer or worst. I have noticed this slow down since the holidays started. On some mornings there is nothing but the occasional teenage wanting a ride which I don't do or the awful car pool, no thanks during prime time. But did get an X ride, but...

    WTH.. Why are there still droves of ants out at 2am on a Monday? Because Uber is a evil genius.. with Quest and their other games. You gotta be a little awestruck by the power they have over the ants. I never thought I’d be trolling around dark sketchy areas of DC at 2 am to finish quest...
  8. Boise
    ugh I drove back n forth through Boise eagle and meridian tonight at least 10 times. I was in all the right surge spots. And guess what!? Not a damn request! ZERO! 4 hours online and I ended up getting one food delivery and the punk didn’t even tip! How was ur guys’ night? There were so many...

    I can't understand what is happening in our sad depressing market lately. For the past few weeks things have been extremely screwed up with the method of receiving ride request. I have been in the parking lot of cowboys, on the side road of gilt during the surges. ( which are now adjust non...
  11. Advocacy
    If drivers like you were represented then what should our Union demand from Uber? I'd like to see: Increased pay. Uber cut decreased from 25% to 20% and drivers get a percentage of the booking fee. Tipping feature on rider-App Limit number of drivers (or rider-to-driver ratio) in a city so...
  12. Brisbane
    Just posted on the Courier Mail. But apparently I read we should wait till March as it will pick up. And also Taxis will disappear and open a huge gap in passengers needing rides. What a banana! -----------------------------------------------------------------------...
  13. Las Vegas
    Got a surprise especially for you Venetian stagers: you ruined this for everyone with your disorganized ugly cluster parking while sleeping pile-o-sloth mess. Venetian will now only allow rideshare at level 3 of the parking garage and will never allow you to sleep there again! Get yer...
  14. Burlington
    I have been driving the Burlington/VT market part time since August 2015 (Back when it was $2 a mile). I have noticed now there are just way too many drivers out there and earnings have plummeted. Even worse is they don't seem to understand how to let a surge ripen before popping online. They...
  15. Washington DC
    Gone are the days a friday would earn a decent amount now its like you can barely cross 100 alone 50 starting in the burbs and hoping someone goes to dc and the filter is hit or miss so seems likes its time to throw in the towel
  16. Atlanta
    I am a new driver but this morning I went out for 5 hours and made only $ 28.00. How can Uber boast about higher earnings? When in reality with hourly rate it's much lower? Is Atlanta market over saturated with drivers? I don't understand why Uber keeps looking for new drivers???
  17. Los Angeles & Orange County
    I am so excited to see all those new faces on the road proudly displaying the Uber symbol. Excited that we all get to realize the American dream of owning our own businesses. Some might say, "But Toonces these drivers are cutting into your earning potential." I respond, "Well I guess I am...

    Is you drive in any populated area you are no doubt seeing an Uber on every corner by now. Multiplying every week. Even in residential. Scroll around the rider app and it is like that across the entire state. I am now waying possibly selling my Uber car, since it is my second car. I'm finding...

  20. Tulsa
    Slow week. Not much going on, even on a Friday night. $60 7 hours on Friday. Mostly short cheap rides. Comments on your week?
