How do Uber drivers get paid for UberPools? Do they get paid double or triple?
The Guru Take
Drivers get paid for distance and duration driven.
The drivers get paid for the distance and duration driven, like any other ride, such as UberX. (Remember, the same drivers provide both UberX and UberPool services.)
Pickup Fees: In some cities, Uber started to pay the driver for each pickup. For example, in Los Angeles, each UberPool pickup nets the driver $0.95.
Surge Pricing: Surge on uberPOOL always matches surge on UberX. If the driver picks up multiple riders at different surge multiples then the average of the surge multiples will apply to your fare.
So, no they do not get paid double or triple. Wouldn't that be nice.
