Uber fares are 'default fares' to be used if a fare is not negotiated...

Both the partner agreement and the user agreement specifically say the fares are 'default fares' to be used if a fare is not negotiated between the driver and the rider.

...you and the Company shall always have the right to negotiate a Service Fee different from the pre-arranged fee.
The purpose of the pre-arranged Service Fee is only to act as the default fee in the event neither party negotiates a different amount.

So, go ahead -
Tell your next rider that you charge a $5 pick-up fee in addition to whatever Uber charges.
Get them to send 'I AGREE TO A $5 Fee' to you by txt ...
and then request a fare adjustment from Uber at the end of the trip.

Document the email exchange you have with the CSR that refuses to increase the fare...
and then send it all to Lis-Riordin if Uber either refuses to charge the fee and pay it to you - or deactivates you.

THAT's the lawsuit I want to see.
@chi1cabby and @Another Uber Driver ... what do you think?

Sounds great in theory but good luck trying that with continual success.

I can understand if you tried this on the longer trips and circumstances with multiple people but sadly you can't see the destination before sliding the button to begin the trip. Once you slide that button over you won't be able to cancel the trip without ending the ride and taking a huge hit in your rating.

Then if you keep doing it without success eventually your rating will drop low enough to be deactivated.

Game over.

Have you had success?
I appreciate the honesty.
