From Uber’s standpoint, it doesn’t matter if you’re a driver or passenger. While drivers can choose to reject requests for any reason during Peak and Surge Pricing periods, ridesharing is all about giving riders the best possible experience at the lowest cost. Here are some of the common reasons why drivers may not want to accept your request:
Your destination is too far away. Drivers make between $1.00 and $2.25 per mile traveled. If a ride comes in that’s several miles out of their way, they’re losing money driving there – without knowing whether they’ll get a fare back. They might also be concerned about how long it will take them to do the return trip and if surge pricing will come down.
Your pickup location is too far away from the driver. Drivers are encouraged to browse requests in their area, so they can accept as many rides as possible. Requests that are too far out of reach mean less time driving around looking for passengers and more time resting at home.
When Surge Pricing is in effect, the trip cost exceeds this driver’s normal fare threshold by a significant amount So if surge pricing increases fares and you request an uberX or uberXL ride, drivers will be informed whether your price or the total cost of your ride would increase due to surging, which may motivate them to reject it due to concerns about potential earnings on that trip. They’re currently in danger zones Where drivers who have recently been stuck in traffic are called ‘ danger zones ‘. In these areas, drivers will be more likely to accept your trip request as they want out of the area. So if you’re in a city where there has been recent bad weather or traffic alerts and have used uberX or uberXL before, then you might find that even though the journey is outside their normal fare threshold, they’ll still accept it because they’re trying to get away from the danger zone.
To add a vehicle, navigate to drivers.uber.com or use the Driver app and select “Vehicles” from the menu on the left side of your screen.
“What we need is a complete overhaul of the country’s driver licensing mechanism,” he adds. “There are still private drivers who can join Uber, but commercial vehicle drivers will have to continue driving with private licences and van owners whose registrations include white number plates will not be allowed, confirms an Uber spokesperson.”
Uber sent messages to its driver partners, offering to buy them their dream car and one million rupees. But the math doesn’t add up anymore. FactorDaily spoke with dozens of drivers and owners of cars who came up with a calculation for what they earn per month, factoring in Uber’s down payment offer.
