Well it was only a matter of time I guess. They are testing the waters to cut fares in my market (which does not even come close to the big cities in demand). Did they do it this way in other cities first?
Make it while you can cause when the students leave it will die.Rates lower in VT does suck. But I'm hoping we can be busier in Burlington. Last night was one of my busiest ever in 1 month with Über. I'm curious if it was lower rates or more passengers due to UVM Alumni weekend. Most of my riders were alumni. One thing we can do is sell the riders our rider codes. I shared 3 codes with non Über riders. More riders meNs less down time. Even with it as busy as it was last night I still only managed 2 rides per hour.
I don't know if you are aware - the economy in VT is non existent so it would be difficult to get another gig.And if you're not willing to stand up against Uber during #UberStrike because you're hung up on some dude that has NOTHING to do with our cause, (He's only the one that got the ball rolling) I don't feel sorry for you. Continue to take it in the ass and stop complaining about it. It only gets worse. Maybe time for you to get another a gig or stand up against these pricks. Your choice.
