lol Pool only on 2x surge. don't accept 2nd ping unless surge is higher than first surge.No u don't get paid any money off that shit are you kidding me lol? I'm sorry anyone still taking NON SURGE RIDES IS EITHER a fool or simply does not know any better. I hope you at least know not to accept POOL EVER
Not gonna lie. I still take non-surge rides here in LA. .90cents. But during Saturday and sunday mornings. less traffic and sitting in traffic will kill you with these measley .15cents a minute.lol thank god
guess you doing the burbs, and are getting on average longer ridesI made 110 in 3 1/2 hrs driving yesterday (after fees, before personal expense) and most of my rides were non surged.(I'll post earnings if it matters) The only place non surge rides don't make sense is in the city but DC tends to surge most of the time. Uber is what you make of it
I don't do pool, I don't do drunk areas( i.e. Clarendon at 2am on a Friday) and I don't pickup anyone below 4.6. If I do get a request in a "drunk" area I will call the pax, that 20 second conversation will tell me everything I need to know about the pax condition and attitude
So not only do you NOT drive for Uber anymore,but STAY criticizing the people that do, you are now the the same type of pax all drivers love to hate!!!!Which doesn't cost much
since my trips are all short except for airport. (For airport, I get on app way ahead of time and book the ride when it's zero surge.)
Sad.Most of the new drivers are completely fine with it. 95% of my rides are from drivers getting no surge. The other 5% are lie surge like 1.2-1.5. Which doesn't cost much since my trips are all short except for airport. (For airport, I get on app way ahead of time and book the ride when it's zero surge.)
Yeah, almost always. There are rare instances where I don't have cash on me though.
Do you tip these drivers
I'm not criticizing you personally. I'm saying that ubers actions are rational, even though I didn't want to keep driving for Uber. And I'm fascinated by the dynamic that goes on in the head of Uber drivers who have stayed with Uber despite several rounds of rate cuts, the incredible saturation, the fact new drivers will gladly work for a net of $10/hr, and the reality that Uber considers pax valuable and "partners" disposable trash.So not only do you NOT drive for Uber anymore,but STAY criticizing the people that do, you are now the the same type of pax all drivers love to hate!!!!
Why can't people online state their opinion without being insulting or disrespectful of the opinions of others?I hope you are kidding. If your goal is to make the most money in the least amount of time then there is a right & a wrong way. Uber loves people that think like you currently are. But if driving 30miles for $25 is working for you then ...
FYI it would take you 30min in light traffic to get to d.c. and you would make more doing only surge rides im sorry doing anything but surge is idiotic but to each his own. By the way a Snowstorm is an anomaly.
On that note @t5condra can you drive me to new york city, i will pay you what uber pays you after their cut, $0.75 per mile. Deal?
....Let us pray for those doing non-surge rides. Amen.
