I picked up at The Met Museum and dropped off at 36 st and 5 ave... Took 47 mins.... I knew it was going to be a long ride so i took out my newspaper lolTraffic is so bad. Driving down 5 th Ave, it feels like Christmas time with the tourists gaping at the tree in Rock Center, and uber wants to add more cars to this insanity.
Yellow is 0.50 a min so that $30 + $3.30 base.... So its $33.30 a hour if u are stuck in traffic for the whole hour.Yellow pays $24 per hour, what's our rate.
You forgot to deduct fees. Net payment is around $17. It's a joke.Yellow is 0.50 a min so that $30 + $3.30 base.... So its $33.30 a hour if u are stuck in traffic for the whole hour.
UberX is 0.40 a min so thats $24 + $3 base... So thats $27 per hour in an hour of traffic.
I really think uber shud be the same rate as yellow... And u guys barely get tips... Unbelievable.
I should have specified that those figures are Gross and not net.You forgot to deduct fees. Net payment is around $17. It's a joke.
I waited for a guy the other day when he asked to make a quick run into 7-11.
When he came out, he started smoking right next to the car and waived me to wait until he's done with sucking. He paid $8 min fare for his stupidity.
In order to compare you don't need to deduct other expenses. Ideal comparison would be : how much you can put into your pocket before your expenses. CC fees you pay is negligible compared to 35% cut.I should have specified that those figures are Gross and not net.
Obviously you wud have to deduct rent (my case yellow cab), gas, tax, cc fee and any other expense.
