UBER drivers say it’s not worth it
Santo Domingo.- Since the recent protests staged by dozens of UBER drivers, there has been a marked reduction in service. This follows a 30% reduction in the fares for users.
The drivers claim that the administrators do not take into account the expenses that they incur when offering the service and this is why many of them have reduced the number of journeys or stopped offering the service altogether.
“This is no longer viable especially with all the demands they are making on us, the drivers. That is why I’ve left,” declared Marco Calderón, who worked as an UBER driver for three months.
“When I am on the main avenues it is not a problem, but I can’t find one in residential areas ,” added Merchy Soto, an UBER passenger.
The company administrators say that they reduced the cost of the service in order to increase demand and that this should translate into profits for the drivers. It appears however that some drivers do not consider this change to be positive.
