Uber is dumping their traditional fare calculation system for one that utilizes machine learning to guess how much a rider is willing to pay for a ride. One example would be a ride from one upper-class area to another, versus traveling between two poorer parts of town: the former, obviously, would cost more. It sounds like a lot of this extra cash will go straight to the company, rather than the driver. The company detailed for the first time in an interview with Bloomberg a new pricing system that’s been in testing for months in certain cities. On Friday, Uber acknowledged to drivers the discrepancy between their compensation and what riders pay. The new fare system is called “route-based pricing,” and it charges customers based on what it predicts they’re willing to pay. It’s a break from the past, when Uber calculated fares using a combination of mileage, time and multipliers based on geographic demand.
