Typically Uber’s promotion(s) have included boost fares and hourly guarantees for all types of regular services (e.g., Uberx, Uberxl, UberPool, etc.); however, this incentive is only targeting UberPool trips.
Uber sent out this promotion to NYC drivers Sunday as an incentive to drive UberPool trips this week. The promotional hours run from 7-9am and from 5-8pm during weekdays (Mon. – Thurs.). Drivers must also complete at least one UberPool trip during each eligible hour, and accept 80% of trip requests too. With this promo it’s obvious that Uber drivers aren’t accepting/completing UberPool trips regularly in this market. Uber doesn’t want to lose market-share to competitors (e.g., Lyft, Via, etc.), and this could be the beginning of a string of UberPool incentives specifically.
The differences between the two TNCs that I currently work with are innumerable; however, the drop-off/pick-up processes are largely dependent on the type of rideshare trip you’ve received.
Hi there, Rideshare Lovers! I’ve never been happier writing a blog post before, and from the title you can guess why. A lot of my past articles have been “talking up” how great Uber is. All that is about to change, as this week I discovered a better way to work. I also completed the required three-day course to renew my TLC license; however, that’s a whole different topic in itself.
