Uber Return To Boundary Agreement

And that means you have to cancel this trip if you don`t want to do it, or you have to make the trip and just come back empty. I guess you really need to explain to passengers why you have to pay for return miles, or maybe you could even just ask them if you can calculate for return miles and see what they say. Have you ever accepted a trip just to find out that it takes you out in the middle of nowhere where you wouldn`t pick up any requests? Well, you`re not alone, and lately I`ve been hearing about a strategy in which drivers have found a way to charge drivers for that return trip or „deadhead“ miles, as some call it. Riders obviously don`t know the destination on Uber in advance until you wipe to start the journey. At this point, you could ask the driver if they need to charge it for the return time or the distance, but I guess most passengers would say, „I`ve never been asked that,“ and they`re probably going to be furious or say no. This is because drivers earn more money on longer journeys, but since it is not possible to control the destination, they could be forced to return empty-handed. There are some features like Lyft Line`s target filter (and Sidecar`s drop-down radius) that allow riders to aim in the same general direction as them, but those functions haven`t really established themselves yet. You want to explain the situation to them and say, „If I want to drop you here, I won`t have a salary. I`m not going to pick up any rides, and it`s going to take me about 30 minutes, which normally costs me about $15 an hour.

If I drive you all the way back, there will be about 4 miles, and it would be nice to have an estimate. „You can use an estimate page like ride.guru, which is a good estimate page, and you basically know what it`s going to cost them for that return trip, but give them a number, and that way, tell them and explain the situation. Not just trying to say, „Hey, I want more money,“ because people are going to say they`re going to give you a tip. Of course, that will never happen. Personally, this is not something I`m going to do in the future, so I`m curious to hear you speak now. What do you think of this strategy of asking passengers in principle if you can charge them for the return or headless miles in situations where you could not have a ride? Do you think it doesn`t matter? Do you think that`s something you`re going to do? Do you think drivers should do it or not? I`ve talked to some drivers who send their passengers an agreement in advance on a text that informs the passenger, „Hey, we`re calculating a return time and a distance for a distant trip,“ and they return the passenger`s text and say, „Okay, take a short screenshot.“ And that`s basically their permission, so if they complain later, you have proof that they agree. In this video and article, there`s talk of a strategy to burden passengers for a round trip, what Uber and Lyft think about it and whether it`s ethical or not, because I think it might be a bit of a controversial topic. . .
