Uber Dallas Update

4299 Views 53 Replies 23 Participants Last post by  Vibing

Students and football are back around The Metroplex, so the busy Fall Season is in full swing! With this demand in mind, Uber DFW has a few updates surrounding UberBLACK.
Starting Friday, August 28, UberBLACK will reopen, accepting new accounts. All vehicles added on or after August 28 will receive both uberSELECT and uberX requests, in addition to UberBLACK requests.

Existing UberBLACK partners have opportunity to take part in the following options:

OPTION 1: Increase your potential earnings and lower your costs
by becoming an uberX, uberXL and uberSELECT partner, instead of UberBLACK. On uberX products, you don't need commercial insurance , which means you will rid of that excess expense by making the switch. On top of earnings saved by not having commercial insurance, uberX products have the lowest service fee at 20%. This will allow you to pocket more per trip. Sign up for uberX products below.
OPTION 2: Increase your potential earnings by opting in to start receivingall requests on the Uber platform. While continuing to receive UberBLACK trips, you will also receive requests from uberSELECT, uberXL and uberX. This will help ensure you're making the most of your time, taking more trips, and earning more per hour. Sign up to receive uberX product requests and UberBLACK requests below.

UberBLACK will still be the most premium experience in town. Offering premium service encourages riders to request UberBLACK. Please continue to make sure you're always providing a 5-Star experience, no matter which type of request comes through.
Riders are More Likely to Rate 5-Stars When:
  • Partners are dressed professionally
  • Partners maintain a clean vehicle both inside and out
  • Vehicles are damage free
  • Doors are opened on both arrival and departure
  • Cold water is provided
We value your partnership and look forward to an extremely busy Fall Season. Please stay tuned for any uberX, uberSELECT and UberBLACK updates. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to[email protected].

Not me I did quit driving in Jan 2014. Can't speak for anyone else here.
you quit all rideshare our just uber
Quit Uber in Jan 2015. Did not ever drive for Lyft.
So how do know what current just asking cause you got alot of current advice
But the main principle for driving for Uber (x at least) is the rate per mile
and that's easy to obtain whether you're driving for Uber or not
and all you need is high school education to do math on 85cents/mile.......whether you drive for Uber or not
Well if people stick to surge we all make more money but people are happy driving .85 a mile
