    Huh--there was a "Flat Fare" in my Uber drop down...swipes to LV offering...then swipe & says no longer available.
    Oh, well, Uber has ticked me off several times in the last month with some info about how they run their business w/o morals so I was planning on only taking Lyft this trip anyway.

    Lyft is not much better as far as the drivers are concerned. They show drivers they are picking up a prime time ride and then does not pay the rate, at least in my city

    I have been very happy with drivers of both companies in more than one city.
    But read about some serious sexual harrassment being buried at Uber. Boycotting is an easy way to say NO.

    Who has purchased this? Is the flat rate the entire rate? When leaving the airport, isn't there an airport fee? Is that included in the flat rate? The last Uber that we took in Vegas had a recovery fee, a service fee, and an airport fee. If these are all included in the flat rate then it will work for us. TIA!

    It doesn't affect what the drivers get paid. Uber still pays the drivers the same as if it were a non discounted trip.

    Not true at all. I spoke to many drivers about this there when I was taking Ubers/Lyfts. My city does not offer Pool or Line but its a bad deal for the drivers all around

    I've picked up several passengers that have told me they were using this discount and others on their ride. When I checked my driving history I was paid the same as if it were a normal non discounted ride.

    They tell you that for sympathy.. more sympathy equals more tips.. they get paid the same as a non discounted ride

    It's still showing up under this link, though I'm not signed up for Uber, so I can't go thru the process to see if it would allow me to sign up for the flat rate or not.

    Once I sign in is when it tells me it is no longer available.

    The link said it wasn't available as of today but you can sign up for notifications and it will let you know. I hope it's available 6/30-7/5!! I'll use the living heck out of it.
