Had a ping around midnight this past saturday for fare to Bovina NY from Charlotte NC. Thats a 19 hour ride per text from pax. Cancelled. Would Fuber even pay us for a ride like that? I thought I read that there was a $200 limit.

Good question

I had a ride to Carey, NC - $539.39 - It was a 2 1/2 hour ride - They did pay it after they verified with the rider - it took a week
-
I will send an email to support - I am curious

Did you cancel ? or the rider ?

Orange BLOUSE - I would have taken it!
-
The estimate for an XL is $1,183 to $1,577 - not worth it - (but I am still thinking about the blouse)
Orange blouse was eariler trip from Chlt. Douglas. Last two text were concerning the trip. I took the orange blouse to Salisbury.

After gas and cheap room deduction, maybe $15 an hour round trip. I would need a large tip paid in advance like $200.

Thats a five hour ride as I have driven it many times. So ten hours round trip. After deducting gas, it still does not turn me on for approx $15hr round trip. I lucked on a trip yesterday from Mooresville NC to Blacksburg SC at $40 one way taking one hour. It turned into a round trip. So two hour trip was $80 plus $20 tip. If it had been one way only, I would most likely of dead headed back most if not all the way again at approx $15 hr after gas deduction. Guber needs to get us back to $1 plus per mile. I would prefer $1.50 plus which is still $1 less per mile than in a cab here. His pax was the best part of his ride unless she turned out to be a rich b#%€h. Now if that guy was Uber Black, he would have done very well.

I've only done 1 long distance trip and worked it out in advance. It was 2:45 am on a Sun. She told me her friends wanted to leave and she wanted to stay. The trip was from the Epicenter to Columbia SC. She gave me a call shortly after sending me the request and explained it all. Said she knew it was late, would be a long ride there and back, knew I wouldn't be picking up any return fares home and would compensate me accordingly. 150.00 dollars on top of the fare. Had a smile on my face the entire way back home at 4:45 am. :cool:

Thats more like it. My request was not as open, nor a phone conversation. Gut feeling said no. It was also from a bad area of town. Just did not feel right.

Good to know they verify with the rider. That, for me, would be the reason I would never accept a long ride like that. All the rider has to do is claim it wasn't them and you just wasted a lot of time and money.
And I'm sure you would have no way to argue it unless you send them 2.5 hours of inside-car-dashcam video. And even then they probably still wouldn't pay.

Here's the question you have to ask, if that person could afford a HUGE fair why not fly? You could have been transporting drugs or something.
