As we all know it was a rough ride for drivers over the weekend. No access on driver's app to see your trips, how much you made, and the worst part was you couldnt cash out to get paid. Drivers were unable to drive as they had no access to their pay. I also had issues with navagation. This isnt the first time this has happened. A few months back there was an issue with the instant pay. I waited a week for my pay last time this happened. Then it occured again a few days later, although this time they fixed it in 32 hrs.
I went on the app today and Uber is giving drivers free instant pay for 1 week. In case you dont drive free instant pay allows drivers to get their pay sent to bank account immediately for .50. I know drivers that lost 2 days of driving, bills they couldnt pay on time, or bills that bounced because money wasnt available. Uber is giving us .50 to 3.50 (if you cash out daily) to compensate for the trouble they caused. Just another way to say FY to its drivers, and to let us know they dont care. Take notice, rider app never goes down and Uber never has issues collecting rider money. Uber can take there .50 and shove it. Any thoughts from other drivers out there?
