        I totally get where you are coming from so this isn’t a dig at your comment. It’s a serious question

        Who should fill that void to take these customers that fall under the “garbage pings?”  In other words, people who don’t have drivers nearby (whether by poor timing or living too far away from a busy area). 

        People need a reliable transportation, meaning a service that will be available when they need it.

          I also get where you’re coming from. What did these pax do before U/L. Do the same thing. However, there are so many drivers out there who accept every ping that they will not be stranded. As a driver coach, I teach to be selective, quality over quantity has always been my motto. It has proven to be a more successful strategy and more profitable. I set my rules for accepting pings that I think are the most beneficial for me.

            That’s fair and you should do what’s most beneficial to you. If some passengers get stranded, I think that’s the fault of the system, not the drivers. 

            When we think back to the taxi days, they picked up every passengers, all drivers. I think the attitude was, “you win some and you lose some, it all works out in the end.”

            Only if Uber paid enough (meaning they paid out way more on the “win trips”) that model would work.

          Let the capitalism do its job. Make it so if certain number of deny these garbage pings, Uber raises the rates on them. Or at least pay the drivers more so they’d be willing to accept it.

      I’ve been a driver for 4 years, not a trick I don’t know, still can hardly break $30 an hour in Los Angeles with 60/21 rates. It’s ugly now, very ugly.
