Uber’s goal is to ensure strong driver earnings while offering the best value to riders.
This summer, Uber paid for a rider price discount to boost demand. What we saw was clear: As a result of the price reduction, more riders are taking more trips than ever before.
We want to ensure drivers can benefit from this increased demand over the long run. As a result, a 10% uberX price cut will go into effect for both riders and drivers today, September 2nd.
All the evidence we’ve seen in New Jersey and around the country is clear: lower prices increase demand, allowing drivers to complete more trips and maintaining driver earnings.
RATE SCHEDULE STARTING SEPTEMBER 2ND
Even though you may make a little less on each fare, you will complete more trips overall, and end up making as much or more than before.
WHY IS THIS CHANGE BEING MADE?
Just like we have seen in other cities over the past few years, we expect HUGE demand growth after Labor Day.
Demand this fall will be bigger than ever
Every year after Labor Day, riders come back from summer vacations and drivers are busier. Because of all the new riders who signed up with Uber this summer, we expect this fall to the biggest we’ve ever seen.

No thank you for lowering the driver’s pay!
But seriously.. check out how low these Uber fares are nowadays. Back when I first started driving it was worth it. Now is it? I think not! Uber Fare Estimator courtesy of rideshareapps.com
If you can look at me with a straight face and tell me that driving is worth it, then you’re out of your mind!
