It's a giant social experiment collecting data. They're seeing what works for who and where. Lot's of people out of town and not a lot of big events right now drawing in people from out of town. Give it some time and we'll see how things are when the college kids quit.

I received hourly guarantees this weekend starting at 12pm today. $1400 over the course of the weekend. $28-$34
Are you a new driver? Also, are you based in Chicago or the suburbs? Meaning what does Uber have on file for your personal address. Just curious as to why certain people get the hourly guarantees and if there's any rhyme or reason to it.

So let me get this straight...for every hour I have the app ON in the city they pay the 30 bucks yet I have to accept every ping that comes in ? Why on earth would they send that offer to suburban drivers ? A city guy is fooked ? then you don't know if you actually qualified till Monday ? I don't like that.. I like to know exactly what I'm making per trip via surge or boost..

Lucky u. I would so rather do hourly.... In my opinion if they paid big time on incentives then u may not get it.... Anyone getting hourly when they paid out a lot of money?

Nope - not new. And I'm in the city. I was getting boosts the last few weeks. I do select only for the most part so boosts didn't apply - could be why

How well were you doing on boost?
