Online last night for 3.5 hours. 3 total rides, for a total of $23. (My cut)
The only positive was I had a very short deadhead trip home since the last pax drop off was 4 blocks from my house.

So where's all this added demand they were spouting off about when they cut the rates last week?

UBER: It's a busy morning in Austin as people head to work to start the day - head online to take advantage of mid-week rush hour demand! t.uber.com/drive-now

Really?

For $hits and giggles, I've had my Uber partner app on all morning (since 6:30am). I've had one ping all morning at 8:30am when I was already in the office, at my desk. Demand is NOT up as far as I can see. I also work quite close to The Domain so there SHOULD be demand...but there's not.

I'm downtown. App isn't on, but just the four or five block radius around my building isn't any busier than normal, in fact, it looks like it's less busy.

So you ended up in the negative side of earnings. Who drives a Taxi and ends up losing out of their pocket to transport people. What is wrong with some people. Uber on.

38 minutes for the first ping, back to back rides that were a little over $10 each -Uber cut. Now I'll see how long I sit.

Just be thankful you haven't had to go to the B on the G. Then you would be in a world of pain. Pickup can be ok when it is over, though.
Just don't accept any trip that is deep in the Zilker area. If it comes from S Lamar you can find a way to maneuver out of traffic.
