Uber is testing a new feature that allows drivers in California to set their own prices

Updated: Jan 25

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal. Uber is testing out a new feature in California that will allow drivers to set their own prices for rides, instead of accepting Uber's set price.

This new change will let drivers increase fares in 10 percent increments, up to five times what Uber sets the base price of the ride. Which in away creates a bidding system where drivers with lower prices get the first customers, and when the demand increases drivers who set higher prices will be matched riders.

Right now Uber is testing this feature for drivers who are going from airports in Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, and Sacramento. Uber wants to see how it works in smaller cities in California before it decides make it statewide and make it available for larger markets.
