Uber drivers lose all the time n the winners are: Pax & uber. Sad but true!UberX is the chum.
Real intent is to push better UberX fares to higher end cars in the UberX category.
EDIT: real intent is to offer better UberX fares to higher class cars. True UberX cars, like a Prius, will never get good fares in UberX platform. Good fares will then end up in Select, Black etc... That also accept UberX. Pax wins, uber wins, both select/black and UberX lose.
