How do Uber drivers get paid for UberPools? Do they get paid double or triple?

    Waaaaaait.  So while the driver is driving multiple parties, they still only get paid like there's one? So Uber gets to pocket the rest?  

    UberPool isn't that much cheaper than UberX.  So while Uber may be able to charge DOUBLE the driver gets paid for one.  That does NOT seem fair.

      The thing is this whole thing isn't doing well, right?  the pool?  I keep hearing horrible things from drivers and how no one does it.

      This is one of those things I already knew but makes me angry when I start thinking about it.  Thanks for stressing me out.

    If the drivers got paid triple, people will be doing UberPool ONLY.  How great would that be.

      The thing is, as this OP wonders, why not, right?  It's technically possible for Uber to pass on this revenue to the drivers.  They just decide not to.
