Can't comment about Monday or Tuesday, but all last week including Sunday half my pickups were Pool, but the pools were all 4 or 5 pickup chains. So that actual trips A to B was about 10-15% Pool and the rest UberX.All my trips since Saturday except 1 pool was uberx and I did not get a 2nd pax in that 1 pool trip. Theory is driver saturation is causing drivers to get 2 trips per hour instead of pool. I am not complaining because I am in the same boat that I just manage to get that 2nd trip in that hour completed.
I only had two single pickup pools last week entirely in 100 rides
Both I have noticed and the riders have commented/complained that the "out of the way" distance to make pickups or extra dropoffs have been increased. This increases the time spent on any multi-pickup ride (at the lower rates) and wastes more of the riders time.
