What I meant was that there are drivers that will be happy just to know what a ride will pay. Anyone knows that 1.5 is more than regular fare, that's why base fares get ignored. There are those that see "comfort" in knowing a $5 " surge bonus" is being added to the ride, without realizing it's for a longer ride that would've paid more under the regular surge system. As long as ants are happy with whatever $ is presented, without any other context, we are screwed. Also, there are ants who think they have to accept every ride, even if it's outside the surge. They will feel as if they're finally being rewarded for driving into the surge area, because the same ride outside the zone will finally have some surge tacked onto it. Again they will not realize the little bonus they receive will be much less than what they would get by simply waiting for a surge ride under the old system.
