Say, after they have accepted, I see that it's a driver I've used in the past and didn't like OR discover hat the driver has poor star rating.

    This question gave me an idea. And now I'm sort of mad Uber doesn't have this feature.  

    People, riders and drivers alike, should be able to filter by ratings. Like one would claim, he would only accept rides from a 4.6 and up. We can do this when purchasing products on Amazon or from vendors on eBay. We shouldn't have to "reject" the match ups.

      JMartenson,

      Why would Uber ever include this feature? Riders pay for the ride, drivers don't.

      The whole objective is to give rides to people. 

      When you accept the ride the notification contains the riders rating.

      I know, it comes too fast and it is too small to read. I don't understand why they even show it.

      If they really wanted you to see the riders rating, it would be in BOLD RED. 

      So a 4.5 rating for a rider would mean they would never be picked up.

      I just don't think Uber is in the business of turning down revenue. 

      Perhaps there is some legal reason that the riders rating is even shown.

      Won't every rider start doing that?  and all drivers below 4.6 would starve.  If users had a choice, they would.  Uber wants to keep that control.

        Because as a picky passenger, your wait time would increase.  You'd have less access to the drivers and better quality you ask, longer you'd have to wait.

        You may say you can can lower your filter, but that would be pretty messy.  Perhaps maybe these picky drivers have to pay more money?  Better drivers get better pay?

        I agree with you.  I feel like there is a room for involvement here.

          What if we match up the good drivers to the bad drivers?  If they suck as riders, they shouldn't have access to the good drivers.  What if we make it so if your rating is 4.6, you cannot have a driver higher than a 4.6 or something.

            Yeah, but they already do that. :)

        and what's wrong with that?   Good drivers will be flooded with work, and bad drivers would have the incentive to improve.
