Male Uber drivers make more than female Uber drivers.
Male Uber riders have higher ratings than female Uber riders.

Let's hear your theories on these phenomena. I have my own, but let's see yours first.

Male drivers drive faster typically, thus getting more rides. Males tend to exhibit more self confidence, which can make people feel more at ease (because the driver is 'in control' and not anxious or nervous). This leads to better tips sometimes.

Males drive more at night, means more rides.

I strongly suspect that females get better tips.

However, I also strongly suspect that females get rated down when they are not returning flirtations.

Just my 2 cents.

It could also be that female drivers are more fearful of suspicious-looking riders, and cancel more often. I wonder if Uber has data on that.

Very interesting question. Maybe they are more demanding or maybe when someone tries to flirt they respond by being professional which is perceived as being cold and they take it personally. I am more curious why my rating on Lyft is significantly above my rating on Uber.

Probably because Lyft has an auto-rate of 5 stars if either driver or pax dont bother rating the other.

Every driver is 5 stars now on Lyft. Shoot, if I saw a driver rated 4.9 or lower I would wonder WTF was wrong with them.

Such a stupid rating game they play.
