Tired of those $2.44 payouts on UberX? Now you can select to recieve only the 50 mile (or more) UberX Trips.
I am actually pretty excited about this. This is something I have yearned for quite some time. While, I do have not taken riders since March because of COVID-19, this would actually be a feature I would use, especially considering the fact that every ride can give you COVID-19, those $2.44 short trips are really not worth it.
Sure, I wish this could be the case for every single ride preference I have, but I will settle with UberX as that is the one that pays the least.
For those who are about to say “The long trips are not worth it”, I will say as I always have: If the long trips are not worth it, how are small trips worth it? It is the same per minute and per mile, either way you cut it.
The only way to make this better (besides adding it to other ride preferences) is to make this a dollar amount. I honestly would take $10+ rides all day long.
