I’ve noticed something especially on Friday and Saturday evenings, when in central Zone 1-3, its mostly surging, and when its not surging, I just park up and loads of pings come, but i just...

    Side by Side Comparison between the ever worsening Uber and Coast so Far Clear Lyft

    First off, my system is my system. It's what works for me. For the most part, it's opposite the mainstream. I use 5 of my 6 DFs during the highly concentrated AM rush. On good days, I get multi trips per DF. Perhaps this simple analysis wouldn't match cucumber to cucumber with your...

    Combined flat rate + multiplier surges

    I was in Philly and noticed a small surge down by Columbus Blvd. There was a +2.75 and also a 1.9X multiplier. I tried getting a picture, but the multiplier disappeared. Has anyone ever seen the two together like that? I got a ping for an X ride at a hotel. Guy was going all the way up to...

    Tonight was my St. Pats

    10 PM - 2 AM which turned into 3 AM. Subtract about a 45 minute break and add about a 20 minute deadhead home. Will see if future tips bump up this total. Sometimes tips have been coming in a day or two later. Pre-St. Pats in full force.

    Flat surge

    Let's talk flat rate surge! The top 3 pictures are during surges either on fridays or Saturdays from 11pm-3am As you can see i had trips <15min or less few mile trip and made $25+ which made the miles on my car and being up at 11pm-3am worth it. Not to mention the multiple shootings and...

    Lyft last ride

    Okay my lyft map was red yesterday so assuming it was surge I took a shared ride. Picked up first pax then put in stop new request. Lyft stacked like 4 extra riders on me anyway. I had to manually cancel out the rides for it to stop. Finish trip and no surge, where did I screw up, outside of...

    Surge???

    Just checking in across North and Midwest what cities are getting surge pricing with this polar vortex plowing down everywhere! Are you all getting surge areas in the bad weather? Are you still taking rides if there is no surge?

    Uber Pax Wait Times Increasing

    This morning, Tuesday January 29th, the freezing temps should invoke surge. I have been watching the map all morning and basically nothing. East Cleveland has shown no surge for the entire morning thus far, Euclid shows no surges thus far, and this is considering the temps and that these areas...

    Uber App Surge Cleveland

    Noticed changes this past week. It is 7am on Monday morning and I have been watching the app for a couple hours. No surges. So let me get this straight. First, federal workers who took up Uber driving during the shutdown are now going back to work taking them off the streets during the day...

    How’s those CTB’s looking this week, Ants?

    Lemme guess: 20% shrinkage?? How low will you go before learning to keep your app off during rush hour until you get surge on EVERY single ride? You wake up early to transport people to work during the busiest, most dangerous time of day to drive. You deserve to get paid more for EVERY RIDE...

    Jersey City and Bayonne area (surge)

    I've noticed for the couple of weeks that there is almost every time a surge in Jersey City and/or Bayonne. Are there not that many drivers or nobody wants to drive there? o_O

    About that heat map...

    Uber says "The heat map should be used as a guide for where you’re likely to find surge in your city." So the last 2 days, I'm out and about in NW Durham and it is lit up like a Christmas tree Friday Morning and Saturday Evening 1.4x to 3.2x I am totally in the area. I'm getting rides in...

    New $$ surge question

    When you get a ping from an area that has $5 surge, how many consecutive trips does that surge "stick" with you? If you don't cancel, reject, go offline, or change preferences.

    CLE weather and surge

    This morning, Friday, I went online for a couple hours. There was barely any surge showing in Cleveland or the eastern suburbs on Uber when during the morning snowstorm and extreme cold temperatures. I picked up a woman with Lyft in Wickliffe and she said that the wait for a driver was so long...
