    I'm new to uber only driving for them in Charlotte for 5 weeks but I get .6075 cents per mile and .11 cents per minute. Another driver and I last night picked up and dropped off at same spot there were 7 riders hence 2 cars and he was paid 5 dollars more than me. He told me he gets .68 cents per mile and like .25 I think per minute. I thought we all git paid the same??????

    Several factors here as possibilities. First, were both trips on the same level of service (UberX vs UberXL, for example)? Second, since you're new, was the other driver someone who'd been driving for a while and has less taken out by Uber because they were grandfathered with a lower rate.

    I've also been driving for a couple of years. Because of that, I have a smaller amount taken by Uber for each trip than someone who would sign up today.

    You can always look at any trip and it will give you a fare breakdown. Go to Earnings, choose TRIPS, select a trip, scroll to the bottom and select Fare Details. It will show all of the fare breakdown for you and the rider.

    Hi Uber Rat I appreciate you helping me out here.I would like to ask you how to read this formula i'm looking at.I'll give you the breakdown perhaps other drivers will benefit from your input as well.
    Here it goes:
    Base Fare>$1.31
    Distance>(3.86 mi. x $0.8250/mi)
    Time (13.25 min x $0.1200/min)
    Total $6.09
    Thanks so much!

    You started with the Base Fare amount of $1.31, then
    You got paid $0.825 per mile for 3.86 miles
    You got paid $0.12 per minute for 13.25 minutes
