As far I see Uberpool it’s fastest way to achieve promotion. Money ok. Tips same and depend by the rider and driver performance. Less waiting time between pick up. As fact no one going far with Uberpool, but it’s fine and legal. Uberpool is much better than Lyft line. Many drivers don’t do Uberpool and hate. I don’t understand and kindly asking for explanation and help!!!

If drivers stop taking them they would eliminate it but unfortunately there are too many drivers like urself who clearly don't know the difference and how it affects the industry on a wider scale.

Uber on my friend :cool:

Thanks Lenny. Avoid Uberpool it’s only base work. Drivers always will do pool, same as Juno. As long it’s existing. Everyone making his own buck. Good luck!

Honestly I think some of them do know... like that many people can't be that dense to realize their earnings are dropping while their amount of pickups/dropoffs are increasing.. but ignore it because they wanna make money and are desperate.. like working a very manual labor job for low pay... you know the amount of work you're doing is for way less than you should be paid... but all you care about is being paid.

4 uber pool pick up will be less earnings if you had 4 x trips. basic math.
Waiting time!!! It's better do Uberpool, than wait.
Promotion, gas, time, vehicle depreciation, maintenance all count. I analyze from all points of view. In the end no one give legitimate answer, therefore we still don't have explanation. One day....!!!!

Have you done a run down on all your expenses to prove this? or are you simply just saying you feel like you're making more because of "waiting time!!!"?

the dude gave you a legit answer.. that you make more doing an individual trip than doing a pool trip..

I get your point that you feel turnover rate > individual fare

But I really don't think you should associate earnings strictly with wait time.. but if it works for you then good job.

Lol the day is here that I've finally seen X becoming like Black/SUV and POOL is becoming X.

The problem is that not enough x jobs out there.And if you came out to work instead of sitting in a car and waiting this $5.75 or $7.56 x jobs and you have a bills and payments for all those expenses and car payments,it's no wonder that people pick up anything available

These are drivers that feel that just because they have a pax in the backseat that that is enough for them.

Uber drivers response to Uber experience is that they are busy :confused:

Being busy doesn't necessarily mean good money.

Do you think there's not enough X jobs because so many drivers are accepting POOL instead of declining them to force the customer to take X instead of POOL?

UberPOOL more time less mileage= lost of money. Plus you pick up 3 passengers everyone is paying less but the total is more than what that fare will cost in Uber x now you still getting paid based on time and distance and the different is going to uber pocket and the customers are made because the ride will take longer. Now uber make extra money customers are cheap but mad and you got your car destroyed and collet one start rating. Plus you just took a job from a fellow driver. Everyone is happy and you get f***D. Good keep taking those pool rides you deserve them.

I get what you are saying, but this job requires mental strength and strategy, just being out there and taking everything and anything that comes your way doesn't mean you are winning, you are busy for sure but once you are trapped with a pool call you are no longer available to accept X calls which then you are losing.

Regardless that Taxi industry whatever you do and drive: pool,line,bliss, ,x , xl, plus, yellow, base, limo, suv -- no profit

Yeah your taking a pool ride from your fellow driver who doesn't want pool rides:confused:o_O:confused:o_O if that makes any sense

Meanwhile 1st ride of the day....If I would have waited for a X ping surge would've dropped dramatically and the only person who would have lost would've been me

That amount is on a surge. When i used to do pool the majority of the people will go a few blocks. very rarely would they take a pool trip for a longer distance. People who take pool for a longer distance usually end up very upset when you have to pick up and drop off people along the way. Also taking pool trip during rush hour is pretty much just begging for your day to go bad.

As so many drivers have said here, the quality of the Pool passengers is so much lower than x rides. They will cause you and other passengers upset and annoyance, they will blame the driver for delays to pick up other pax. All of our drivers see an uptick in false pax complaints and a serious decrease in their driver ratings when they do pool rides. Pool pax are predominantly going to ghetto locations where your life and safety is in danger and the streets are riddled with potholes that destroy your car.

I can justify doing a pool ride with significant surge that brings you towards home when you have your DF on. Otherwise, I stay the hell away from them.
