Ridester is conducting its Quarterly Survey of Driver Sentiment. If you’re an Uber driver, we’d like to hear your thoughts!
The purpose of this survey is to get an accurate reading on…
- How you’re feeling about driving.
- How you’re feeling about Uber.
- How much drivers are REALLY earning.
A lot of surveys have been done on driver earnings and we want to put together a survey with real evidence and hard data about drivers’ earnings. When you get near the end of the survey we’ll ask you to upload a screenshot from the earnings page on the driver’s app to show us, rather than tell us, what you earned. That way, we’ll get the most accurate picture of driver earnings to date.
We believe that in the past Uber has put out inflated and exaggerated figures about driver earnings and we believe this survey will provide credible hard evidence about what drivers are really earning.
Therefore, we want to put together a survey with real evidence and hard data about driver’s earnings. When the survey is complete, we will present the results to the media. It will give the media a true picture of how much (or rather how little) drivers are really earning.
In order to do that, we’ll ask you to provide a screenshot of your earnings on a typical day that you have worked recently. From that we will be able to calculate average hourly earnings. And we’ll be able to present it to the media as the most credible survey of driver earnings yet conducted.
We won’t just be taking drivers’ words for how much they’re making – we’ll be taking their proof! And if it comes in as low as we expect it too, it will be something people can’t ignore.
We believe this will provide evidence that drivers are earning substantially less than Uber would like everyone to believe and we think the truth should be known.
