Why would it be cheaper to get a Spanish speaking driver (Uber Espanol) or wheelchair access (WAV)?

Why would this happen? I mean, if the option was that they ONLY speak Spanish, it may make sense, but this is supposed to be an extra service.

and the wheelchair?

    Maybe there's less availability of UberX.  Wait, no.  That is weird.  I assume Spanish and WAV cars are regular UberX so there should always be more availability of UberX, hence that should be the cheapest.

    Do cars assigned as WAV or Spanish only accept those special requests?  No, right?

    Maybe longer wait time for those special vehicles. It doesn't quite make sense, but maybe the logic of "longer wait time = cheaper prices" kicked in (inadvertently for Uber).

    Simple.  Uber forgot to add their random uptick to those options. Probably fell off the radar or their algo missed it. 

    Sharp eye though.  I will check those.

      or they felt guilty screwing people in wheelchairs

      and they know to pay Mexican drivers less. That's just the Uber way.

    Also....why is UberX allow 3 passengers and UberWAV and Spanish offer 4?

    Especially with the Wheelchair, you'd think it'd be the opposite

      The car having a wheelchair or a Spanish speaking driver doesn't mean it's automatically an UberX size. 

      Maybe it's an SUV (UberXL) that happens to have a wheelchair or a Mexican driver.
