Girl #1, "one who responded to the name on the app", Pax B, Pax A...
This story isn't making any sense.
two pax get in , two get out, but 1 left? if 1 got out only and changed the destination its not a scam, its uber's bs of taking split fare and shafting the driver. i have dropped off 4 ppl 3 different locations and only got $7 base off time and distance as if only 1 pax, yet uber got multiple split fare fees.
You're thinking of UberPool, the OP is not describing UberPool
From my understanding, Joe ordered the uber on his phone with the destination being Bobs house. When I picked them up Joe asks "can we make a stop real quick, I'll be fast" sure, detour to Joes house. Joe gets out and leaves Bob in car which Uber thinks is Joe. I then was forced to continue to the destination to end the ride
There is nothing wrong with this as long as the addresses are updated in the pax app.
I do this all the time, it extends your trip so who cares? You get paid by miles and times, so the more miles they add to their trip the better.
I got 2 pax request to close out my night on Saturday. Two different destinations and it was 2.2x UberX trip. First girl wanted to go about 10 miles in one direction, then her friend was getting dropped 10 miles further south. 20 miles and it ended up around $35 ish.
As long as the pit stops don't take longer than 2 minutes, I don't have an issue with it. Even better if it was a quick "Hop in, hop out" of a pax which only takes about 15 seconds and you're back on the road.
