    Looking at your receipt.  Uber took $4.08 of your $12.40 trip? (Without tip, that's 11.40.)  That's 36%!!!!!!

      For shorter trips, yes, the portion Uber takes becomes much larger by percentage, primarily due to the flatrate booking fee.

      This is the reason why Uber drivers prefer longer rides.

    So as a rider, I couldn't care less about this.

    According to Uber: 

    "The booking fee helps cover our regulatory, safety, and operational costs, including insurance protection for you and your drivers on every trip. "
