They have no competition anymore taxis are done. It’s supply and demand people are reliant on rideshare so they have no choice but to accept the increase. Also people always tipped cab drivers but Uber was so stupid when they launched saying tipping wasn’t allowed they screwed us from day one

Because both are trying to garner the majority of the market by offering lower price to passengers while cutting costs at the expense of their drivers.

Also, both have said they’re in this for the patents on automonous cars. That’s what they’re banking on. Everything else is doesn’t matter to VC or investors.

They name their own price for pax on every fare, there is no such thing as a "rate".

What you really are asking is for them to raise distance and time rate for drivers...well that is not happening. The investors subsidizing bonuses is over, time to pay them back.

You understand you don't get a percentage of the pax fare right? That is not how this works.

Uber+Lyft HAVE raised their prices, you got what you wanted, but you don't get any of it.

Exactly!! Uber and Lyft realized that they can safely raise their fares and they HAVE already done so. However, it's time to pay "Big Daddy", aka initial investors, back plus interest. Raising the mile/minute rate goes contrary to this goal.

We are long past the move they made to divorce how we get paid vs the amount they charge passengers. In fact, if you drive rideshare currently, you must agree to this stipulation just to log on. Resolved.

They did, actually, raised their prices and on top of that we got a rate cut too. Ups and downs......the training is over, now you have to work hard for the money.
