I have been driving a lot less for Uber ever since the recent rate cuts.

I used to drive 75% Uber & 25% Lyft. Now I do 10% Uber and 90% Lyft.

So today I get my weekly email from Uber. I have probably done around 25 - 30 trips in the last 2 weeks and as you can see only 21 passengers rated me.

So, According to uber, my rating is below average and that's with 90% of passengers who rated me 5 stars.

What a great rating system Uber has? What are your thoughts?

Their rating system is total BS and unfair to us all.

Hoping they replace it soon with the new one they've been testing out...thumbs up/thumbs down or smiley face/sad face.

Clients who would normally leave a 4 or 3 star rating thinking that's good for us will most likely leave either thumbs up or smiley face...essentially giving us a 5 star rating.

Pax doesn't remember trip,but he will rate you anyway.

Single males.

If they didn't get the woman they wanted at the bar,that little wounded ego will strike out at your rating and everything else.
Who hurt you lol

Whole lot less people getting rides lately.
All I can say.

Now the taxi lot at the airport was 3 times as full as it was the last 3 months.

Thinking of leasing one by the week myself

Amount of hours I am putting in,it would be worth it.

And since less people are getting rides ,I'm not stuck at Burger King for 15 minutes while drunk pax argues with burger king over how many ketchup packets they can have at 4:15 am.

Anecdotally I agree this is frequently true. By no means always, but young drunk guys can really be a roll of the dice. Some are great. Some are 99% passed out.

Some are angry, often kicked out of their final bar, and definitely not me they wanted to go home with ;-)

again 3 passengers rated you badly. Did you make a wrong turn and not end the trip? did you delay the pickup by a few minutes? is your car clean and do you wash your windows? what about offering water and mints and chargers? Did you open the trunk if luggage was present? do you smoke? did you make a target run and offer to buy them socks for free? if not why not?
