What is going on with Uber in Chicago? A friend shares good data.” Why? Can you say self driving vehicles. I came to grips along time ago with the slow death syndrome. That's why they like a turnover they dont celebrate 5 years of driving .we are expendable.Reply I don’t understand how these big companies can treat us like dirt and get away with it. They have no company without workers!Reply This morning in Boston I noticed there was no surge. Monday mornings are always good for surge. People going to the airport, then work 4:30 – 8:30 … always good surge. Today, nothing…WTF is going on?Reply I'm curious. How many people eat at a restaurant and leave no tip? The server does not need to buy any gas, oil changes, tires, etc, but I bet 90% of customers tip every meal. On average, only about 40-50% of my riders tip. Just a thought.Reply OMG this is bs. Thank God I'm not driving full time anymore. Only part time people. Idk why people still hoping that Uber and Lyft will change. As long as theirs drivers willing to drive for lower rate they will continue to abuse drivers.Reply Charging the passengers more and not sharing it with the drivers should be actionable has anybody talked to a lawyer about this cuz this is just wrong!Reply They seem to be ending surge and boost in most citys in the drivers end .. I do eats fulltime and seem my boost go from 1.9 to 1.1 or none ….Reply If the surge says $5 uber is keeping almost double of the surge.. Giving u pennysReply Yuppp welcome 2 uber !!! I picked this up in phoenix a while ago . i never liked the surge areas. Uber would make double what they gave u … I drove in non surge areas fuck them ..Reply Same thing in San Diego! They are rubbing us left and rightReply Something went wrong…Reply Some of the trips pay so low a firend would give You more money for gas to drive them as a favor, it is beyond redlicous and totally a rip off explotation, forced to quit. it is really a huge waste of time and one of the biggest rip off cheats in history.Reply Play their game and Stay OUT of those heat zones then. It's similar to a strike. This abuse will lead this desperate company to only take on and cater to desperate drivers. They will lower their standards to get new desperate drivers. As a rider, I don't care about who gets a piece of my pie and would perceive that driver as begging and whining.Reply It's totally unconscionable what Lyft and Uber are doing with the rates and the deception and the Spin Zone they need to be exposed on a public level for everybody to see!Reply Taxi rates in Dallas have not changed in 5 years !!!Reply With lyft u can see what pax pays. So, if I'm hear u ride uber doesn't.Reply I don’t know why but I never got this email and I literally just looked at the app and it’s surging now $4.25 at the airport (O’hare) as thought nothing has changed…also, saw people complaining about it and I screen shot this to, there was no surge from DT to the AP during typical surge time. So pt is, they weren’t overcharging the riders, the pricing was consistent with non surge. This morning was on fire. But again, I never got this message from Uber and I live and drive exclusively in Chicago.Reply Each week im making less and less, going bankrupt to repair car. many calls for pick up is far some 7 miles, krazy for pay rate and time. Can't afford new tires. Feels like being used by friends for free ride.Reply Here in NOLA Lyft took away our surges after Marda Gras … now we get "HEAT" maps that show where high demand is but NO bonuses… I don't even bother with them and I still get my rides. AND TO MAKE IT WORSE!! The passengers are telling me they ARE getting surge rates!! Just not going to the drivers.Reply is the whole thing a mental game now? people cant drive free? Whats next 25 cents per mile? Every 2 months its a new app and new pay rate? My phone crashed updating app too many times now is krazy people.Reply Here the insurance of type. But the no name of the insurance company.https://www.tryprides.com/policies/#toggle-id-8I asked one of the people who doing tryp in YouTube.Reply No surge since 930a.m today.I got this b.s msg today from Uber and my Ap has been off all day.Why drive in traffic in Chicago at base rate? These are free rides for Uber after our expenses. They've finally figured out how to get us to drive for them for free (in massive traffic). 😄 Whew! Uber needs to be outlawed.Gio hasn't said a word yet.Reply What's going on? Uber screws the drivers. Every chance they get. Uber are scum. That's what's going on.Reply I’m in Chicago and drove 7 hrs today. Despite rain almost all day there was very little surge.Reply Lyft took out prime time from driver and are still charging passengers why does this surprise you?Reply We’ve had this feature in Nashville for a few days, it’s information drivers that know the market already know. My first opinion is that it was surge areas without getting paid surge, but there have still been surges since they’ve introduced this. In fact, last night the whole city was surging at around $6 for several hours. I haven’t looked at all my trip breakdowns yet, but it seems like a somewhat useless and kind of inaccurate feature but not that nefarious.Reply Uber has been doing this since Sept of 2018 in Chicago, I happens to me everyday, I let as many of my riders know what uber is doing!!!!Reply Omg that is insane! As a driver I’m gonna stay out of the “surge area” and let Uber keep 100% of nothing (Uber can’t earn revenue if there’s no drivers there to take the ride) Why would a driver fight traffic and deal with all that bullshit if there’s no surge pricing? Wow!Reply This is why I’m dropping rideshare and getting my cdl lolReply FIRSTReply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
