So with Uber being 40% cheaper than cabs and the 25% commission that is being taken from new Uber drivers, is there anything left for the drivers?

Well, I have received approximately 14,000 and some odd Ratings Stars, not to mention a lifetime of cherished GUber memories. Which are priceless of course (The memories, not the stars I mean. The Stars are worthless, less than worthless actually).
So, there's that...Oh, and yesterday, a thoughtful Pin left me her empty bottle of vegetable juice so I received a good karma payment since I had the privilege to recycle this item for her. It adds up.

Why would you drive for uber and make $2 per hour after all expenses..

Today I worked for a limo company...no uber black. After all expenses (gas and tolls) I made roughly $16 per hour.. And my car is sitting in my driveway smiling.. No more uber for my car.

Get a freaking chauffeur license.. And go work for a limo company.. They're all hiring now. It's not that hard to get a hard card.. Maybe 3 weeks process and maybe $250-300 investment.

A $5 cab ride down the street in Boston is not much more $$, if at all, than UberX. Plus, no $1 safe ride fee. Plus, if UberX surges, it's likely more $$ than the cab for short rides.

I've had a pax or two in recent months say, " Hey, you're cheaper than Uber!". That was for a quick $7 fare at bar break.
