Check your waybill for specifics but after your next ride.

In most markets Uber saves money on unmatched pools by paying you less per minute than they pay for X rides

1.75 a mile? In Georgia uberx we get .75 cents a mile and 12c a min. Seems I could double or triple my wages living in New York and living in my car since housing isn't triple the price compared to Georgia and neither is food or gas.

Edit: Uber pool we get .65c per mile .12c a min I think.

Does an unmatched pool ride = x ride if the pool rider #2 is cancelled due to being a no show or in the wrong location ?

Much more expensive to live in new York than Georgia and they are required to buy commercial insurance

Enterprise and Uber gives me commercial insurance so I'm paying for that. Anyone that is a driver with uber is required to have it but most don't notify their insurance company about it because the insurance company will drop them. They are literally an accident waiting to happen.

Secondly,
The median household income across New York City stands at $50,711, according to 2010-2012 estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Atlanta Metro Area's median Household Income at $54,628 in 2012 according to the ACS. There might be something wrong with this statistic but that's what I found.

Now perhaps I'm missing something because I'm not from New York but, New York city and the city of Atlanta are where the most hotspots of both cities are located... Are they not?

As of January 2017, average apartment rent within the city of of Atlanta, GA is $1580.

Is a apartment in New York city 2.33 times that of the city of Atlanta? No, but it's close and that's the issue I'm having trouble understanding.

As of January 2017, average apartment rent within the city of of New York, NY is $3076.

One would believe in this case based on those statistics is that both places make the same amount of money overall but within the Uber community that's obviously not true as shown with the per mile calculation.

Actually in most states you only need commercial insurance to drive Uber Black and UberSUV. You only need a rideshare endorsement from your insurance for Uberx, xl and select. The endorsement is much cheaper than commercial insurance.

As far as cost of living. New Yorks median income is skewed by a lot of low income housing. Not saying Atlanta doesn't have projects etc. But NY is way more overpopulated than Atlanta. NY is build upwards and Atlanta spreads out
