Well, in general, the demographics of people who take Ubers are younger generation. Not sure about beautiful but younger more affluent people take them, sure. Then it also depends on where. If your husband chooses to drive in downtown Boston like Back Bay or Financial District, he’d definitely see young female professionals. This is even more true near campuses, like in Cambridge.
Not sure if drivers are all that successful in meeting females while driving for Uber but that’s hard to comment specific to your husband. Yes, the encounters are there, but I’m thinking it’s easier to meet someone at a bar than driving for an Uber
Not really for “everyone.” It’s for everyone who has money.
LOL. Sitting up front AND silent? Yeah, that's crazy.
I am surprised to hear you still get passengers who ride up front. Unless, of course it's a party more than 3.
Uber pays so little for the time waiting, that I would never take this deal. I want to be paid a living wage, like $15 to $20.
Wait, Uber charges like $0.30~ a minute, so that translates to $18~20? (minus their commissions) OK, I will do it. I am in!
We are all doomed.
Then again, we will all just go back to being taxis
Driving is yet another job that’s horrible for your back! LO
"Don't accept all rides Uber gives you."
Yeah, that’s what this belligerent rapist would have tried. So shameful.
Some guys don’t get the hint.
I love it how that can be the answer to 80% of rideshare questions out there
I had no idea of this. Really? I guess the regulations are much less strict for driving a burrito over real people.
Maybe it would have been more effective if a girlfriend showed up.
LOL. Nah, I think it's a joke.
On-demand services will be so pervasive that we will have Uber Coast Guard soon. No worries at all.
Just make sure your phone is charged.
Where’s the “don’t sign the petition” button?
I complain about short rides, but I really don't mind that much as long as the pickup was quick.
It may depend on whether you are subtracting expense or not. I’m in Boston and continuously make over $25 (on the selected days I target), but when I subtract fuel and expenses, I’m in the teens for sure. Then multiply that by 2000 and I get my annual, which is pretty crappy for being 40-something.
Right, because those who have the mind to use the barf bags aren’t so drunk that they need them.
Isn’t that one of the reasons Lyft now requires cleaning fees?
Here's an advice. To be a good rideshare driver, you have to be mindful of the demand of people's travel. At first, you have to do this consciously. Check your local Amtrak schedules, look up local events, when and which restaurants are busy. You have to do this while also gauging the *supply*, ie other drivers.
The good news is that you will quickly learn and go into a routine. You will just naturally know, and it becomes a part of your shift.
Further advice: here are the hot times, at least wher eI am, and usually in urban areas:
Keep track of your hot and popular times!
Wait, I got it. To see the Uber acceptance rate and cancellations, you have to log into the web dashboard, it will display the metrics there. (https://partners.uber.com/login/)
This brings up a question whether Uber actually cares about these metrics anymore. They obviously track it (as you can see it in web), but the fact that they have hidden it from app makes me think they don't care anymore.
There was a court dealing on this where Uber cannot deactivate the drivers for low acceptance rates. We are independent contractors and do not have to take rides we do not want to.
I justed posted this elsewhere, but since this is the same question, I will re-post.
It looks like you can no longer see the acceptance rates and cancellations in the new Uber mobile app. To see the those Uber acceptance rate and cancellations, you have to log into the web dashboard, it will display the metrics there. (https://partners.uber.com/login/)
