Some people's standards are much lower than others

Y’all see how Unity works to control prices with this snow storm. Now if we could all just :100: unite to no pools there would be no more UberPool or LyftLine…But y’all still willing to accept settling 2 passengers 30min driving $4.50 fare.

Sweetie, you can have all my pools. I have other income coming in, so i’m in a position to decline them ALL whenever I decide to turn on the app.

Do your thing. I don’t care what anybody else chooses to do or not do. That’s the point. Everybody needs to worry about themselves. I also have other income coming in so what’s your point?

she works for corporate she a snitch y’all she trying to persuade y’all to keep doing lines n pool out in this ice for little pay :moneybag: … she trying to keep her Uber business running smoothly :running_woman:t5:.

If these drivers out here wanna ride around and take pool rides all day long for a $30 or $45 Quest, let them knock themselves out! When you have options in life to do better, you are more selective in things you DO and things you will NOT DO!

I don’t have a problem with Pool/Line neither, as long as I aint accepting them in the city. I work in the area where I live, Sandy Springs/Roswell/Alpharetta, etc and pool/line is totally different out here. One customer may be the only one in the car 98% of the time…

Reading is fundamental and clearly you didn’t read your own statement. You said pool/line is different outside the city and my response to your statement was how was it different.
The Atlanta market is the same, whether it’s Roswell, Newnan or Decatur. Athens is a different market and has different pricing for fares.
So if I’m reading your original statement correctly, you’re giving pool rides that are unmatched 98% of the time. So that means you’re getting paid less per mile and per minute than if that same side had been an UberX. You settle for a $40 ride when it could be a $50-60 ride. If you turn down a pool, it can easily turn into a UberX and in turn you make MORE money. :money_mouth_face:
Ladies no one is mad about folks taking pools, I just assumed y’all didn’t bother to do the math to know the difference. :woman_shrugging:t4:

And I care about people…some of us don’t have that type of heart though but get upset when the rich and well off people look down on them and dont want to help them. There are plenty of times I picked up young employed teens, waiting for 15 to 20 mins…I knew why they were waiting…And some people cant afford the extra $5 to $6 everyday when they are barely making minimum wages, but they still have to get to work…I look at things like that and speak with people…

Like I said, neither are wrong. But, if you can sit here and honestly tell me that if your employer asked you to work for half the minimum wage indefinitely to “help the company” or “help the people” then you actually do have the right to criticize the OP. I doubt you’d be willing to do that day in and day out unless of course you really don’t need the money and your purpose for working is charity.

Exactly .

This is was unintentional unity.

We unintentionally United for the common purpose to be safe against the dangerous untreated icy :snowflake: roads. And prices rose , and so many areas have said Uber unavailable.

We can intentionally unite.

We can intentionally Unite for the common purpose to be anti Uberpool/Lyft Line. And the only available rides will be Uber X or regular Lyft etc. .

We know that but Atlanta not GOING to unite. If you want drivers who UNITE , you have to go CA and NY. Those drivers have received several settlements because of Uber bullshit! SOME drivers in Atlanta so desperate they would drive for .29 a mile and let Uber take 30% out of that.

I wasn’t aware that we were uniting against pool/line. Sometimes I mind them, sometimes I don’t. Had my first service dog pax and that was interesting. However, I think folk with service animals need to stick with whatever they were doing before Uber and Lyft came along.

When I had to drop a total of $1600 last year on my car, no one was giving me a handout. Working Uberpool should be optional NOT required. When I start working for Uber, pool did not exist.

I don’t do Pool/Line rides based on principle. I will not allow a company to take advantage of me while climbing their way to the top financially. You made $14 taking four people to four separate places. Meanwhile Uber/Lyft made $80. Does that sound fair?

I don’t want to hear “I do it to help people.” Those same people have been getting around just fine before Pool and Line existed. Whether it be by bus, train, or just paying regular X and Lyft prices.

You really need to learn to value yourselves or no one else will. Hence the reason why Pool/Line exists in the first place. They know that there are plenty of people they can take advantage of on a daily basis while making billions off of their labor and resources.

It’s like a losing battle, folks are highly desperate and will settle for any little piece of change. How can one Not understand how the whole fucking concept hurts drivers. Smh…

Y’all really out here mad about what people choose to do with THEIR car. I don’t exactly consider going a couple min off my path as a big enough inconvenience to cry about, especially since I’m still getting paid. If you don’t want to do it, then don’t. But why be mad about those who do??? Some people work a lot harder at their regular jobs for less money :woman_shrugging:t5:

And let’s not start the “they’re taking advantage of you thing.” They’re making billions anyway (were doing so before pools and lines even came along).

Because every time you put an additional pool rider in your car it takes one rider away from another driver. How do you not understand that? You will understand when you sitting there wondering why YOU can’t even get a pool ride and it’s gonna be because they are funneling all the riders into one damn car.

she must be new. She see in the summer, when u are literally in the car for 1hour waiting for a rider . And it’s NOT because u r rejecting Uberpool, it’s because u haven’t received a ping at all. And Uberpool is still Active, so for the drivers accepting Uberpool. 4 customers in 1 Car , 3 cars without a customer.

College season is busy. The summer is dead when college is out. May-September is slow. That’s 5months. You’ll see more how Uberpool is detrimental.

Why do you all seem to think pools/lines pay the same as regular rides?! THEY DON’T. The only folks that benefit from pools are the riders and the platform. YOU take home less for each ride…Less per mile AND less per minute. Why? Because not only is the platform charging the customer less but they also take a booking fee from each pax you pick up. So you get $0.50 for each pickup and the platform makes $2-4 in booking fees per passenger that you pick up.

For those who love math and working smarter.
