I am afraid the drivers would reach out to unsuspecting females.
4.8!! I’ve heard of people say 4.6, but man drivers are getting strict!
But I assume it’s the best drivers who can be picky cal kudos to you!
...That’s assuming higher rated drivers get the pings first. That is...the case, right?
Right, I understand, but the users don't know that you'd be driving 10~20 minutes to pick us up, you know? I feel like the fault lies on no one for a case like this.
Well, I suppose I can make the request and let it bounce around many drivers like it's a hot potato. Someone will pick me up, right?
Also, how often do you get a ~20 minute pickups? Is that common? or are you talking a rare case?
😔 No, I wouldn't. and this is what I suspected and the reason I asked.
Thanks for the math though. Speaking safety, I may still make the requests and hopefully bored drivers will pick me up. I will just make sure to tip a bit more!😅
I didn't really think of the pickup length. I incorrectly assumed they’d all be about the same. So you are saying if it’s a long drive to pick up a passenger, you’d lose money.
That’s nice that you see the how long it takes for pickup, but you don’t see the destination and how long the actual ride is. I have to say there seems to be some weird disconnect here.
For example, I’d like to be considerate of the driver’s time, but I don’t have a say in how far the drivers are when I need a ride.
You are a good sport, and thanks!
Back to my original question though. Do you really lose money on short trips despite the initial booking fee? How is that possible? Isn’t there an issue with Uber pricing if that’s really the case?
