How To Check Your Uber Rating As A Passenger

Up till last Saturday, I didn’t know passengers of Uber had ratings too. My driver told me I had a high rating which increase my chance of getting a UberPool ride. I’m not sure how true that is but I’m happy that I’m well liked by the drivers. Lol!

Anyway, here’s how you check your own Uber rating. 

Go to Help on your Uber app. That’s at the drop down menu at the top left hand corner.

Checking Uber Rider Rating – Your Rating!
This is how you get your rating. So here’s the rating. It’s 4.91. Not sure why it’s not 5. I’m sure I have been very nice to the drivers all these while.

I Nearly Got Into Trouble Taking A Cab

I have been writing about me using Uber and Grab on a regular basis nowadays. And today, something embarassing happened because of this habit.

I was late for a charity run so I was really in a hurry. Usually I would have called for Uber or Grab but today I wanted to try my luck flagging down a cab because I didn’t want to wait. I think it was due to the early timing, I managed to flag down a cab immediately.

So the journey was the regular chit chat and stuff. And when I reached my destination, I said “Thank You! Bye!” and got off the cab. Regular affair ya? No. The cab driver honked me and stare at me puzzledly. He told me the cab fare is $10.80. I replied that I’m paying my credit card. And at that moment, I realised that I flagged down his cab! I didn’t use the apps. I apologize profusely and quickly paid him. And of course quickly disappeared from his view. It was pretty embarrassing.

Use of the apps has changed my habits. I’m so used to just paying via the apps that it has become 2nd nature. This is how technology is changing our way of life.

Luckily the driver didn’t have a violent reaction. I think he was pretty confused too.

Which Kind Of People Share Rides

As I have written previously, I’m sort of hooked-on to the OTT ride hailing apps. Other than my personal trips, my company has a corporate account from Grab which I use for my work related traveling.

So besides UberX, I find myself using UberPool more as well. Some might say it’s not exactly efficient yet in terms of putting pooling customers together. I have to agree but let’s talk about this another time. What’s interesting this time is : the kind of people who share rides.

During one of the rides last week, my Uber driver made a comment. She thinks that UberPool passengers are generally more cheerful, more chatty compared to UberX.

I agree with my driver totally. Out of my few pooling rides, there was only 1 single ride where the fellow passenger kept very quiet. Other than that, the other rides were all very enjoyable with all of chats and laughter throughout the whole journey. My explanation for this is that since we are already willing to share the ride, we are generally more easy going. And personally, one of the things I enjoy most during these rides is chatting with the drivers. Be it Uber, Grab or other car pooling apps, some of the drivers have another day job and another life other than driving, so there’s quite a lot to talk about.

Just a year back, I wouldn’t think of sharing a cab ride with people. Remember how Comfort cab tried to do this years ago and failed. There were problems like having to pair up with strangers and not having visibility of the eventual fare etc. The OTT apps has surmounted these problems and changed our lives.
