comes with a lot of restrictions, maybe someone can post

should be easy to achieve though, 1 trip per hour in the heart of DC?
but then again, in that traffic, 1 might be the max

requirements arent that bad
the 50min is NOT per hour
its merely 50min for that whole day of wed, and then 50min by 1pm on thurs

$22/hour gross fares to sit in traffic.......

What ever happened to $27+ guarantees? I thought Fuber partners made more money with fare reductions?

It's "Uber Math ®" all over again!

No thanks!

also the guarantee appears to be gross, not net.
they are normally almost always gross
only net was the UberEats rate ive seen

but if you can game it to one short trip per hour, i think its a win for the DC traffic loving folks
i can tell you guys the secret to gaming it if you ask nicely...

The key to high surging is to shut the app off for a minute or so..that's why they wanted to know who's all driving because chances are Uber will be spending some of their own money to compensate for parts of certain surges..if y'all watched the CEO's video posted a few days ago he mentioned how Uber came out of their pockets during hurricane Sandy..so basically the pax may see 2x..drivers may see 3x..we'll get the 3x but pax will only pay 2x..now if drivers shut the app off here & there..Uber will have no choice but to fork it over & eat it..the last thing they would want is lost confidence from pax & bad press about pax not being picked up in the DMV..this is our chance to DANCE WITH THE DEVIL..WHO'S IN??? As for now it's NAP TIME..lol

Will be using same tragedy. If only $22 gross I'll be shutting it down early! I'm expecting more like $35 gross per hr?
thats what im thinking, if i decide to go out in the morning. ill work the surges, no way im going to accept 90 percent of pings and stay online 50min an hour. ill play hide and seek to surges come in. matter fact i will try hard not to do any runs without some type of surge.
