It maybe worth it.  AdamMartinez  1 star

I’m going to list the pros and cons as this app has cracked doors for me. So here they are; You meet great people who will offer you other jobs if it have another career. You sometimes get great tips and can make $30 in one hour. You have fun trips sometimes when you have a nice destination like to San Francisco or Yosemite. It’s fun sometimes. The cons; You meet a lot of arsholes, drunks, people with no class, racists, people who will think they are better and superior than you, creeps, prostitutes, homeless, and pick up people in really shady parts of town. Other careless drivers almost hit you on the road. Bad roads take a toll on your car. It is tiring some nights. People eat in your car and spill stuff in it, want to throw up in it. Dent your car, scratch it. Sometimes you make $3 a ride, $1 of those dollars has to be spent on gas so you net $2 total. You can make $30 a day or $150 a day. Weekends are the best, it’s not even worth it driving in the day as small towns are flooded with Ubers. Only do rides with a surge and avoid picking up people who are 8 minutes away. Stick with 5 minutes or less to avoid wasting gas. You’ve been warned. This will save you months of headaches. Only do this until you find a real job. It gets you through hard times.

Luddite all night

Beware  Luddite all night  1 star

I selected a destination and the Uber app auto-populated the final airport destination. Uber then charges me almost $10 dollars more indicating I entered an incorrect address. The address they populated. Additionally the driver gave no indication the entered destination varied from the actual destination, or that there would be a different fare. Zero transparency. Zero accountability. Uber listed the destination as the “Main building”, they said I should have entered “Terminal B”. There’s a difference? Are they truly a $10 difference in distance? Never again, deleted and done.

Never been able to request a ride. Poor Cust. Service  sam1033  1 star

For the life of my Uber account I have never been able to request a ride. It seems there was an issue with my phone number being associated with 2 different emails. When I my first email didn’t work I tried signing up with a new account. So I deleted the account associated with me outlook email and waited 30 days. I again tried to request a ride and my account was disable for security reasons. I have 10+ email responses and messages from the help tab in the Uber app saying the same thing (sometimes exactly the same to the character) that my account was disabled for security reasons but should be fixed. I’ve been stranded at locations after closing hours without a ride because I was told my account was fixed but it wasn’t. Customer service has been as helpful as they can be with their copy and paste responses. They told me to try to change my payment method. Account disabled. I’ve tried logging out of the app and logging back in. Locked out of my account. And cannot even log back into the app to get the the help message i submitted so I have to submit a new request to get in contact with customer service. If I could call and talk to a real person to get some information on why this is happening maybe I could be a paying customer. I’ve tried sending nasty informational messages with my problem and I’ve tried sending monotoned informational messages. Nothing has allowed be to participate in this technology. I tried giving up on Uber and switching to Lyft but there are not many or no drivers in my town when I needed a ride. So this app get 1 star. 0 stars if I could because I’ve never been able to use it for its purpose. To request a ride.


Costs raised and changed.  Ncbchdk  1 star

Uber raised their costs. The same trip I take daily went from $7.50 to $8.60 without warning. I take a trip that cost $19 and on the way back the exact same route it cost me $26. That's with no surcharge. I work with people who also drive uber who warned me also. Watch your trip costs. Uber will take everything they can get away with.

App is inaccurate  rrfrtygfgg  1 star

The app is inaccurate and the driver then cancels the trip charging the clients. I have had to pay over $100 in the last month because the app is so inaccurate. Would rather go taxi or private car hire

Best Uber ever  Dicknkob  5 star

Very good Uber, best in Sydney would definitely recommend, and ride with him everytime !!!


So infuriating  bmarieeeekk  2 star

This app is such a waste of time. Tells you a new error every time you try to sign in. Says it doesn’t recognises my email address, then says it does. Finally manage to re set my password, and oh look, it doesn’t recognise it, after confirming everything? Not only is it a waste of time, you then have to wait for someone to get in touch with you about this issue. Too bad if you had to get somewhere, which is exactly what I needed.


Disappointed  rolig77  1 star

I was charged $5.09 and I didn’t even ride with any car on 07/21/2018 . It’s not the money it’s the fact that I feel robbed


Promo scam  frequent_flier  1 star

Über lies about the promos - especially the “first ride” or GMAP promo. No valid way to enter the code, so you end up paying out of pocket, then when you ask for help, they say you have to upload the promo screenshot....which disappeared once you signed up to Uber n booked the ride. Fakers. Go with Lyft - they actually do what they promise.


Allow us to pick drivers  eurovisionaire  2 star

They should allow us to pick the drivers that we want. Base on my experience I have some drivers who are lost going to my pick up location and I have drivers that cancels the pick up for the last minute. It’s really really annoying.


Terrible service  holldeez99  1 star

8/10 times the uber drivers i get matched with are rude and unprofessional. They give you only 2 minutes to come outside and if you just so happen to be walking to the car between when it reaches 2 minutes they will cancel and completely be rude about it and make you wait for another one in the rain.


Charge me for late driver  buttermilkman  1 star

On two separate occasions, driver got lost on their way to pick up! I was charged for WAITING ON THE DRIVER! GPS TRACKER SHOWS THEM TURNING AND REVERSING DIRECTION


I want to be contact for Uber regarding unfair charges!!😡  elizabeth4ever  1 star

Unfair charges on my credit card ... I took uber couple years ago , services and wasn’t so bad like these days .. app got frozen then uber share wants customers walk to get uber 6 to 9 minute to meet a driver !!! The app doesn’t say about the walking time before you accept to get share uber !!! Uber charged 4 times for just one ride !! 😡I refused to walk to meet a driver blocks always from my home !! I have uber because I got really strong pain in my leg and I couldn’t drive my car so this uber wants me walking for blocks to meet the Uber drive !!!

The Sustainable Banker

Needs simplification  The Sustainable Banker  4 star

Surprised the app is as busy as it is in 2018. Choosing between Uber X and XL is fairly simple but confirming ride is not. I thought I confirmed a ride, texted the driver, then the app switched drivers which was frustrating. I’ll keep using it because it’s functional and better than other options but UX would rate a 3 at best.


Language preference  Princes2theking  4 star

It would be nice to have an option for language preference. I do not speak nor do I understand Spanish. It is a great challenge when your driver doesn’t understand you. This situation has cost me financially and emotionally.

What is Uber Doing

Wen did not drive me any where!  What is Uber Doing  2 star

I got into Wen’s vehicle (grey camery) he said he was not my driver and I had to get out of his vehicle. Why was I charged $7.50? I get another call from another uber driver saying, she was also my driver. But, she was at the location where l wanted to be dropped off at. NOT AT THE PICK UP LOCATION. My account is pending $14.70. All of this in one evening. I’m done with Uber!

Poor service by Driver  Gansteins  3 star

Not very reliable  zee2112  3 star

Uber app doesn’t provide the real ETA in Nigeria. I’m having to cancel severally because by the time I call the driver 5mis after my request he/she is 10mins or more away real time. And getting Uber early mornings is a challenge. Not very impressed.


Types of cars used by uber  yhemzy  3 star

Uber now uses all sorts of low grade cars. Not nice😞. Shoulda just maintained Toyota Corolla at least.


Problem with car  Nommye  2 star

Hi it was my first ride , However, when driver came his car window were open and i asked him to open air conditioner but it was not working and it was very hot . And he told me that this car belongs to Uber and they ll sort it out so I didn’t argue cuz I don’t have an any idea that uber provides car or not to their drivers . So i get off to my destination. So i hope my review ll help to improve Uber’s quality.

Great App but needs more precise location service  Alii.Alex  4 star

I love Uber but I’ve found my Uber driver ends up stopping at the wrong location to pick me up because of the app.

Worlds Greatest Elf

Brilliant App But Could Be Better  Worlds Greatest Elf  3 star

...I would allow an option to book a cab at a time in the future and to set up to pass/stop at multiple places on a journey...


Extremely bad for short trips  Malau14  2 star

The fee for cancelling is higher than the price for short trips so a lot of drivers in Asia will deliberately drive around in big circles to avoid picking you up so you'll cancel costing a lot of money. There's literally no punishment for the driver as it's impossible to rate drivers without completing a trip.


Too expensive  P16373  1 star

Charges 5 euro for cancelling, ridiculous, stick with mytaxi


Frauds, always overcharging  Maymaywong  1 star

Terrible, constantly overcharges me and add extra transaction fees and pretends it's my bank not them.

Cannot confirm my request with cash payment  AUXICA1  2 star

Why I’m not able to confirm my request with a cash payment only with credit card payment. This is not fair. Each time I want to confirm my request, it appears to be error unless I choose card payment.Please fix it


Disappointed  Bokboer  1 star

I downloaded the Uber app and the very first ride I request I get the message ‘oops, sorry something went wrong. There was an error processing your request. Please visit in-app help for assistance.’ I promptly did and 3 hours later, no help. Well, by now the plane is long gone!


Not impressed  mellymoo7437  1 star

I have found Uber very reliable but thanks to its Facebook verification I cannot access Uber any longer. I found this very frustrating and will now resort to other transport methods. I am not impressed with this. Bye Felicia


Slip sliding away  cdrstdftg  2 star

Drivers can’t seem to find me and it’s getting worse every time. Uber has fallen from fantastic 2 years ago to very average today


A Durban issue  clarabomu  4 star

My Uber rides were perfect, except it turns out that Uber drivers are no longer allowed to enter the pick-up and drop-off areas at King Shaka International airport, so passengers need to physically walk out of the airport perimeter to meet their drivers. This is quite annoying, especially if you need to catch a flight in a hurry!


Speeding  rvi55  3 star

Had a very irritated driver. Flashing people to get out of the way while he was speeding in a 60 zone. Not on


Always late  Pierremeyer88  1 star

I was allocated to 3 different drivers for 1 trip. I ended up waiting for 25mins for a driver (where the app said 4mins). No discount on my fare for the inconvenience. Would not recommend uber.

Error with app  mikey.radar  1 star

The app is not operating properly on my phone. It doesn’t show the map and I don’t get to request a pickup


Unfair Charges  Joloving  2 star

The app was directing the first driver elsewhere instead of where I made the request. Besides that, the fare that the app gave me differs from the charge on the Driver’s phone when we arrived. This is very unfair to Customers and Uber should take a look at the charges
