Told ya guys, it’s 3.99 .

To me it’s simple pizza pie math. Pax pays a pizza pie. Uber needs to take it’s chunk to operate, pay off officials, fight stupid lawsuits, petitions etc. Uber shareholders need to take their portion. Dara and his gang takes his pie. The driver needs to pay his expenses form whatever is left for him.

Now, the size of pizza pie is constant…but Everything else increases in price. Operating costs are higher, officials and Lawyers are asking for more money, Dara& friends need more. So who’s slice gets smaller and smaller? Only thing left is driver’s net.

‘No matter what laws you implement, the pizza is not increasing, and therefore how can you have more slices for driver’s net? It’s not possible. Only way is to increase the pizza. But then there won’t be as many pizzas to go around.

You can’t change the pizza economics. Gig economy only works because someone grabs the shitty end of the stick… in this case, it’s the driver. You cannot change that.

Well, try to implement those promos in your "pizza" model. Each active driver is able to take up to 1.5k on top of a weekly earnings....
Just wonder to whom that pizza is supposed to be served before I digest it?..

Whose pizza piece was before I digest it?..
That’s the thing… based on this forum, you are the only one who seems to be achieving the promos. So is it really available to every driver? And is there enough pizzas for each driver to complete the promos? Or are the simply a carrot?

@mikees3 wouldn’t have to drive 140km/h and complain that Uber is poverty is he also could get the promo.

‘There is only so many rides available each week. So if promo says do 500 rides in a week. And there is only 5000 rides available, but you got 10,000 drivers. How many will get the promo? And out of the ones who get it, it will be impossible for every one to complete…. Hence 3.99 .

you gotta understand when I say 3.99, I don’t mean every single driver, every single time. I drove Uber, I. Never made 3.99 cuz the minute it dropped below 15 I was home. When I say 3.99, it means unless you are selective (meaning time, promos, surges etc)…. On long enough timeline, averages into all the drivers it will be 3.99 .

The scary part is, that if you make say 25/hr, then that means so many must make much less than 3.99 to bring the average to 3.99 .

It's a gigantic task. I honestly would like to see how Konkort pulls it off without blowing a tire or his head. Lol

It’s possible. My most crazy days were 18 hrs 3 days straight. Tire blows, no problem. You got spare, you drive to the shop (while picking up pax on destination of course), then it’s like a pit stop. Get it fixed, and off you go.

I do it each week on regular base, boy.
By the way, I am an oldest one on UP. That's why it's very strange that nobody else can repeat the same. It looks for me like you are made from other material, much softer...

I have only had 6 trips so far this week with 5+ hours of online time. I can't even make to 20 trip quest, not my choice.
That's strange. I have just completed first quest 365$/100 trips..
Probably I have to open Uber classes..
Don't worry, it would be free ..
