In a company blog post, Uber explained this will happen once a rider reaches a "significantly below average rating" and is expected to only impact a small number of riders.

Uber says they'll get several chances to improve their rating before getting the boot.

Once a passenger is removed from the app, the ban will last for an indefinite period of time.

Each rating is an average, so users can not view their rating for an individual trip.
