DRIVER EARNINGS PER HOUR ON THE RISE!
--posted by Steve, Jan 29th--
On October 1st, 2014, we officially launched uberX in Ottawa. Since then, partner earnings have increased on average 65%! The latest earnings increase came in the last 2 weeks since we reduced prices on January 9th, 2016.
Price reductions means more riders can use the uberX service. This means partners spend less time waiting for requests, and more time on trip. More time on trip means higer earnings!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT EARNINGS AND PRICES
will earnings increase right away?
Possibly. But gradual increase throughout the coming 4-6 weeks is most likely.
what if driver earnings do not increase?
If driver earnings do not increase we will revert to our former pricing structure.
how long will guarantees last?
We will reduce guarantees when we’re confident your earnings stabilize above today’s average. Guarantees are now finished (March 6th, 2016)
Why NOT GENERATE MORE RIDER INTEREST FROM ADVERTISTING?
Based on experience from hundreds of cities, we know that price promotions are the most effective tool to increase demand.
I'M ALREADY WORKING PEAK TIMES, I COULDN'T POSSIBLY DO MORE TRIPS PER HOUR. HOW DOES THE PRICE CUT HELP?
You should expect shorter ETAs and more surge pricing during peak periods.
HOW ARE MY GUARANTEES CALCULATED?
The guarantee is a based on gross fares per hour, excluding booking fee, and will be prorated for partial hours
To qualify, you must have the required trips per hour and acceptance rate in the given time block
If you qualify, your gross fares will be increased to the guarantee level before your payment statement is calculated (Monday morning)
Example: Completed 7 trips Friday 7:30-11:00pm. 90% acceptance rate criteria is met; trip per hour is met; ares total $70
Uber will add $10.50 to your gross fares (3.5hr * $23/hr = $80.50).
