Average 60 mph from Love to Denton? Wow!!!! That is impressive. The long run rates kill you. How was that 43 deadhead run?

.54 cents a mile as standard irs cost of driving.
Multiply by miles driven and dead miles coming back. .54 x (43 +43) = 46 bucks.
This is approximate but from this view you didn't do well.
Sorry.

Trip was from love field to small town outside denton. These rates are ridiculous, making it harder to keep driving for uber.
That $90 plus tip =$100 in regular taxi
Limo $160 plus tip=$180
If you desperate switch to lyft at least you get tip!!
That s a Joke ! That why driver need to come together and strike.

Is there anyone on here who remembers the $1.48/mile, $0.19/minute rates we used to get in Dallas/Ft Worth? I'm guessing not many. Like me, they've all stopped driving. If rates go back to $1.20/mile I might consider driving again.

I remember!!
When passengers were paying that $1.48/mile rate they were happy! Why Uber feels like they need to give our services away is beyond me. Do they think that more people will use the service because the minimum is now $3.50? Hell no. It's just a slap in the face. Uber needs to take a lesson from drug dealers. They have the passengers hooked now, so it's time to RAISE the prices.

Über could make some money by raising the rates. http://gawker.com/here-are-the-internal-documents-that-prove-uber-is-a-mo-1704234157

That's a long way to come back empty!

I picked up a Love Field to North Richland Hills... 25 miles, 32 minutes, netted $20 and some change to get stranded in north Fort Worth. Makes me wish I hadn't fired up the app "just to see" what I could get.

this is actually disturbing. uber is asking you to ruin your car for them , the only money you make on that is the depreciation of the miles and gas. smh

TIPS?! PLEASE!!! I work for Uber. I don't know please, don't give me "money". Uber happily pays me .07/min and .45/mile which barely gives me enough to even fill my gas tank but ya know what....I am happy to do this for you drunk guy who smells like pee. Whats that? You didn't smell like pee before you got in my car? don't worry about it! Uber pays me slightly more to clean up after you. And don't worry, I get to stop making money tonight and go clean that up right now. No YOU have a great night! Thanks for the 3 star rating for no apparent reason.
