    Is DC the only place that changed Surges to Add-on? ATL still had the 2.0X Surges

    I went to ATL and the drivers still had the regular surges and had no idea about the add on surges. Did this just change in DC? If so why just DC? Now given ATL drivers said they only get like .79 a mile compared to the $1.02 we get in DC but still they get surges.

    Standing Out At Night

    I notice that pax are often very hesitant to approach at night (I have the standard decal). I work the downtown area early mornings and it's a total pain to get my pax during surges. A lot of times they can't tell a Benz from Prius. It's frustrating! I've wanted to get one of those windshield...

    Uber Brisbane New Years Eve (email exaggerations again)$$$

    Latest email from Uber regarding NYE earnings: "New Years eve is one of the busiest nights of the year! Last year we saw drivers earning over $100 an hour in gross fares, during peak times!" What they left out was that rates where 20% higher this time last year and the govt is this year...

    Surges / Peak Times in Fort Myers?

    I'll be riding Uber for the first time on Thursday because I need a ride to the airport. I heard about price surges and such for Uber and I really don't want to pay a fortune to go to the airport. I'm riding Uber rather than paying to leave my car at the airport all weekend so I'm hoping to save...

    The surge - just out of reach...

    I was driving tonight, when I was yet again toyed with teased even, by Uber....Rottnest Island was surging and all I could do is sit in Freo...and think of what could have been. This was a worse tease than driving towards a surge area, and seeing it retreat like a Broome tide. They are like a...

    Uber Plans To Kill Surge Pricing

    Albuquerque, As a fellow uber driver myself, what are your thoughts in uber ending surge pricing for us?

    Are YOU part of the problem?

    If you're the get-away driver for the bank heist but didn't actually hold the gun, you are still guilty of bank robbery. No one will deny the standard rates paid to an Uber driver are ridiculous low. Uber has been scamming unsuspecting people into driving for years now by outright lies. "We...

    No more surges in Miami

    I have been doing Uber for 6 months. It was good in the beginning, but not worth it anymore. For those of us that drive in big busy cities. Chances are higher for accidents and everything else is more expensive(tolls, insurance, etc.)I noticed I do not get any surge price areas. The areas are...

    WHY IS IT WE HAVE TO BE ONLINE TO SEE A MAP/SURGES???

    I'm going to toss this out there to see what you guys have to say about this... but first my opinion. Uber doesn't like it if we go online and not respond to a ping. It's inevitable, I go online to check out if there are surges on the map generally and more specifically where they're located...

    Drivers can no longer see the Surges!

    So every since yesterday after the upgrade. My driver app no longer shows where it's surging. It does light up yellow, orange or red. But if I'm in another app while I still have the Uber app on, like this morning (At the top on the blue bar) it says Uber surging 1.5-3.6x but I could not figure...

Heres my question WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING WITH THE SURGES?!?!? Yes I get that uber keeps hiring drivers and their ultimate goal is to have...
