UBER is hiking its fees in Australia for its ride-sharing service, with the company introducing a new booking fee and an increase to its minimum fares due to “operational costs”.
Peak body The Rideshare Drivers United said the new fee changes were a welcome step in the right direction but were too “minuscule” to make an impact to drivers’ earnings.
“This very small minimum fare increase is not really going to make much of a difference to drivers bottom line. Most drivers we talked to view this latest Uber increase as an insult and a slap in the face,” the organisation said.
