UberX has raised its Philadelphia rates and changes are being made to put more money in UberPOOL drivers' pockets, according to an email obtained by the Philadelphia Business Journal.
UberX's new minimum fare has jumped to $5.75 from $5.25.
On the flip side, riders will still pay the same prices for UberPOOL, but drivers will take home a slightly larger percentage of the overall payment than they had in the past.* That means UberPOOL drivers will earn more per trip.
UberPOOL, which allows riders to share trips with strangers, was introduced in February as an economic alternative to UberX.
