Got an Uber special today. Landed a long trip four and a half miles away, on my way there I get a rerouting notification to closer Rider. And to my horror I was correct in my thinking. The new ride was a minimum fare

Thanks a lot Uber always looking out for your drivers

damn that sucks... i still just stay out here in the warminster area, so the few long trips a week are what makes the week worthwhile. I had 2 saturday and that would have been my second Sunday.

Just tap arrive and call them and apologize. Tell them you'll pay for the wait time of what ever pennies a minute it is lol.

I'm assuming they don't charge for distance until you start the ride.

Contact support and tell them you were offered a long ride and insist that they pay you for 45 minutes.

I once got rematched with a 4.3 rider, I just continued driving until they cancelled.

Lol, I'm at 30th. I have a 1.5x boost at 30th I'm like the only driver and I'm rejecting everything waiting for a long ride notification lol.

Every other ping has no boost but I can contest this. Unless they're VIP and I'm not getting the VIP notification.

Lol ive skipped like 30 pings at 1.5x...... come on long trip lol.

You should test it on a regular trip. If it works out a regular trip , it should work on a long trip.

Can t believe how lucky I got. 1st of all, only 1 car at 30th when I had 1.5x boost. So I got this ride, older guy in his 60s. Manages 16 wendys in the tristate for a person. We're talking and he said he used to work for a car service when he was younger and how ******** would stiff him after a fare when he would run red lights so a pax wouldn't miss a train or flight. I new I was getting tipped. I drop him off and he says thanks a lot and here's the difference of what a cab would of costed me. He hands me 50 dollars. :O he only paid 39 dollars. So almost 100 dollars for that fare! Only took 40 decline trips lmfao.
