Thought I would run this by the experts. I live in Longmont, Colorado... home to about 80,000 people. We have several uber drivers in town, and not super busy, but fairly regular uber customers in the town as well. With winter setting in, I think a lot of the regular ubers aren't doing it as much, and there often exists a situation where there are zero drivers in town. When there are zero drivers, it never surges. Even when Denver (about 45 minutes away) was solid red, with surges as high as the high 8's, boulder (about 15 minutes away) was surging in the 6's and 7's, Longmont wasn't surging at all. In theory, there HAD to be people in Longmont looking for ubers... but they brought up the app, it said no drivers in the area, and that was that. They couldn't get a ride. Because they couldn't actually request the ride, apparently Uber didn't know there was enough demand, and didn't surge. I know if there had been a decent surge, I'd have been willing to risk my life and my vehicle at least a little bit more and get out there... but for a $3-4 fare (what many of them end up being around here) not really interested in taking the risk. Anyone else noticed a similar trend? In bigger towns this is never really an issue, there are always SOME drivers out there.
