Rider rating doesn’t really matter.
Uber veterans who pride themselves on their highly-coveted five-star rating may be a bit deflated to learn that really, rating riders is mostly irrelevant. It doesn’t ensure better service or a faster pick-up time. In fact, most drivers don’t even look at rider rating before accepting passenger. “I’ll accept a ride that comes in regardless of rating,” JC says. That’s because drivers only have a few seconds to accept an incoming ride request before it gets passed along to the next closest Uber car, and most drivers would rather make a few bucks off of a rude passenger with three stars than make no money while holding out for a five-star rider. “I’m just in the habit of, when I get a request, that’s money in my pocket, so I click accept,” Barrett says.
DRIVERS NEED TO ENFORCE RIDER LOW RATINGS – UBER WON’T.
NO TIP WITH POSTED TIP SIGN – 1 STAR
