    ALL UBER DRIVERS. CLICK ON FARE DETAILS. ADD UP HOW MUCH UBER IS TAKING FROM YOU EACH NIGHT IN PERCENTAGE.
    You will quickly see what is going on. UBER TRICKED the NEWS into thinking Rides are Subsidized?
    I know Rental Cars Are. They offer $185.00 Bonus if you give 70 Rides a Week.
    That is because if they do not do that, NO DRIVER COULD EVEN PAY FOR THE CAR.
    As far as normal drivers go, NO, they rip off the driver by not paying for gas, and taking 40% to 70% ON AVERAGE of what customers pay.

    Partners have to show a little empothy if riders don't wish to talk maybe they have a good reason. Of course partners are going to be rewarded. If partners only carry out good service because they get a reward they shouldn't be in the service industry. Don't expect anything in return but do it with good faith and maybe there's a thing called a tip.

    A passenger, politely, can set the tone of not wanting conversation. A driver knows some music can impact a tip, and temperate is hardly an issue. So in a way Uber is selling air.

      As a driver, i give the same energy a customer gives off. The customer sets the tone for me. If a customer is talkactive, i engage them. But if the customer is quite, well its going to be a long quite ride with the occasional creepy glances at the customer through the mirror.

    Lol. Benefits the driver. Trust, they don't want to small talk with 90 pecent of the moronic passengers asking the same 3 questions all the time.

    (ಠ_ರೃ) You ideologues at CBSN almost make it sound like the women of colorized intersectional people need to find a more fruitful discipline-that a degree in critical race and gender theory cannot provide. So ladies stop dragging your feet, this isn't a half-day, chop-chop! Those gender quotas aren't a guarantee to a executive position at the Pussyhat factory!

    Some celebrities that get picked up prefer to forget they are celebrities for a minute as they enjoy a nice ride without the driver reminding them how great they are in the big screen. I myself as a driver took a few celebrities in an Uber ride before and it took a few tries before I got it right. its a good feature to have on the app because some people as myself love to show homage
