    Uber upfront fares are a 15%-20% pay cut to drivers masquerading as a "system enhancement".

    We are receivng dozens of emails from drivers with clear evidence of intentional fare "miscalculations", off by as much as 30% of what a fare should have been, and often missing tolls. Uber support seems not interested.

    RSDU recommends that where possible drivers should start paying less attention to the Uber app and take more bookings from all other rideshare operators available in their city.

    Drivers! Double check all your fares. We have found surge fares are particularly bad where we have seen evidence of Uber undercutting drivers by up to 30% off normal fare prices. We find this appalling!

    We have launched an online gross fare calculator to help you check your fares quickly. A standalone Android version of this calculator is also avialable for download on Google app store.

    The online Uber fare calculator can be found here:

    Have you been grossly short changed on your Uber fares lately?... RSDU are now in the process of collecting evidence in prepration for action and we would like to hear from you. Please contact us here:
