I would like to present a real data to show what my earning is in this week. Please see the attached JPG files. If you have any questions, please contact me at [REDACTED]. I have driven Uber since December, 2014. Let's see Image25.jpg first 1 Total driving hours is 10 hours 42 minutes. This only counts from passenger pick up to drop off. This does not include any hours on the road with Uber app online but no passengers inside. 2 Total miles driven 331 miles. Again, this does not include any dead miles. It only counts the miles from pick up to drop off. 3 Regular fare earned $459.88 Surging earned $4.32 Tolls Reimbursement 28.38 Tolls short paid $1.53 Uber Commission 92.83 Net fair earned 401.28 Another tolls short paid $1.31 Tips $5.00 Gas Expense $124.02 4 Average trip length 15 minutes Average trip mileage 7.89 miles Average trip fare $9.78 5 Total passengers 53 (Male 31 and Female 22) 6 Total 5 cancellations (drive to pick up location, wait more than 5 minutes and rider no show). The cancel fee is $6. Even though, Uber does not forget to take 20% commission. In other words, Uber gets $1.20 and driver gets $4.80. If you have any questions on this presentation, please feel free to contact me. Thanks. Please DO NOT disclose this to Uber. With all the detailed information (date, time, length, niles, fare, passenger names, and so on), Uber can very easily find out this information is provided by Robert Lo and Uber can easily deactivate me without any reasons. I humbly request to keep my provided information strictly confidential. I do need to drive Uber and bring food to table. Thanks for your understanding.
