Boise Uber drivers struggle with lower fares

A fare cut has prompted some Treasure Valley Uber drivers to reduce their hours on the road or to quit taking riders altogether. Uber says the cut has attracted new riders in Boise and in many other U.S. cities and will restore the fare if doing so would increase revenue for drivers and for the company. But drivers are growing impatient and say Uber’s team overseeing Boise, which is located in Seattle, doesn’t understand how the Valley’s sprawl means longer drives between rides, eating into profits.
