Actually, our minimum ride payment went from $2.63 to $4.03 when upfront pricing was implemented.The sad thing about that offer the OP posted is that it was originally lower. The only reason it's $4 is because of the distance to pickup. It probably started out as $2 or less.
The stupid thing is it would be nice if they just friggin showed us where the trip is going. They show everyone the pickup address why can't they just show the drop off when we accept.Yeah, there's always someone who thinks it's worth it to start and stop your car for $4.
No it’s not. It’s a ride fulfillment tool because the original driver it was offered to declined it. “surge rates” are used to attract drivers to a particular area.I think trip radar is meant to be a tool to attract drivers to a certain area. When the system detects a high volume of requests coming out of a certain area, it triggers trip radar. Uber knows it's not likely that any drivers who aren't in that immediate area will take the request, but hopes that more will start heading that way in hopes of picking up more lucrative offers.
I've hahd entire days with nothing but such offers. I wonder how the algorithim chooses??I went to bed early got up early that morning ready to conquer the day and that's all they were bombarding me with was crap like that... It was very very discouraging to say the least
