If I responded to a pickup for a 30 mile ride and once in the car the pax changed it to a 2 mile ride I'd have no problem pulling over and ending the trip right there.Sure, some or even most riders will enter accurate information on their trip. However, I suspect at least 35% of Uber's low-class clientele will lie and cheat their way to a pick-up. That's a big chunk of passengers who are going to test the patience of a work force that has shown very little patience in recent months.
I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the offer started LOWER than $66, but as drivers kept declining Uber's disgusting offers, they started increasing it. I doubt there will be any takers at $66, $76, or even $86 for that ride.Of course there were drivers snatching these rides up. It puzzles me and I thought drivers were getting smarter. You can literally do any other gig and make more money in less time and miles than that $66 trip.
Spoken like a Super HeroUber wants to be all things to all people, and they want to do it in one app. That means having multiple apps for pax to use will never happen. People are leery enough giving out credit card information as it is. Imagine having to do it four different times for the exact same company? Sounds like a hassle, and an increased risk of my personal information getting breached.
Also, Uber pax are entitled by nature, because Uber trains them to be that way. Simply dicing up the service levels into different apps will not preclude paxholes from being paxholes. The five college kids who want to ride in your Prius will still claim no Uber XLs were available, so they had go to UberX instead.
This is a morally bankrupt company that trains its passengers (and drivers too) to become self-serving malcontents. There's no amount of jerk-proofing that can be done to save Uber from itself at this point.
Holy shit. I'll quit when things get that bad here. And people are really accepting this? I'm a total newb and even my ape brain knows those are horrible losses. I'd say there goes any chance of me complaining about my market, but it's Uber, every market can complain what uber pays.
Dunno but the rabbit hole is getting deeper....So basically gonna have to find a new hustle if this rolls out in all markets
I’m just starting. how long have you been in business and is it worth it ?I am retired on Social Security But I need to make at least $2500 a month to cover expenses in taxes.Is that reasonable I live in Reno Nevada . We’re short on drivers a month or so ago from what I understand I know I couldn’t get a trip one Saturday night at all…We are desperately short of drivers and after 7 years can't find our own a**to wipe so we are flinging chit at wall to see what sticks. Htf is reducing fares on long trips going to help. Plenty of missed flights from suburbs coming up
So it's 16 minutes away. That means you'll get there at 4:21. You'll then have to wait at least 19 minutes for the pax to show up. All for $2.88. You lose money before you even start the ride.
