UBERBLACK UPDATES

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.
DRIVE ALL UBERX PRODUCTS
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.
DRIVE UBERX PRODUCTS + UBERBLACK



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].

It's vague enough that, maybe, existing UberBlack drivers have the option; however, I'm sure if that is the case it is just a matter of time until that changes and they force them in or out.
I do this for shit and giggles, and beer money BUT don't insult my intelligence. Its like a pathetic joke that never ends. And I turn on the Passenger App during the day and look at all the **** tards out there driving 10 minutes to make $3.00 on a trip. IDGI.

Uber's charts are great and all, but any commercially licensed and insured driver that drives UberBlack is only using Uber as a downtime reduction tool. Uber should represent no more than 20-30% of their total business (if that).

It means small, old and not sexy enough cars (like Prius) will be rated low and finally kick off the market.

just saw a Uber Black/SUV report on Channel 8, not happy with Uber X being there. Uber Black drivers waiting 6 hours at DFW airport for rides. I find Uber charts useless especially this one when they dropped rates to .85 cents. No numbers!!

Deregulation is a disaster. TNC's are toxic to local communities and decent wages.

The silly thing is, you can call and arrange a black car/SUV pickup from DFW for about $55-60 one way (for about 20-30 mile range). There's no reason to pay $4/mile.

I think its because some companies prefer there employees to use Uber but guess your right

Trust me it's not UBER that keeps us driving. Actually it is those few , rare , passengers that actually care and appreciate us. They tip $5 $10 even $20 bucks a ride.

They sent me an email that new UBER black drivers can actually keep more of their fares by taking UBER X rides now. Think about that for a second. 20 %. Not 28 % of the actual fare! However the fare is 1-3rd the size. Man they really think we are stupid. They talk like politicians. Unbelievable
A limo for .80 cents A mile ! What a F joke.
If I was less than half my age and went to prom.. I'd book my car for the night.. Just keep canceling til a black car takes it.

as it was, when I went to prom. I just bought the damn limo from the salvage yard a few months before. We had a blast that night, then a few weeks later we entered it in to the demo contest.
