Did Hoboken hit 3x last night?

I was in Hoboken waiting for a long high surge ride.. I was getting 2.5x pings and that was as high as I saw before I took a 45+ 2.2x at around 245.. I thought it might hit the 3’s since Hoboken seemed very busy and it was in the 2.5 range for a bit.. There was also some sort of fire over by Texas Arizona - lots of smoke. My ride paid nicely and my pax were generous with the tip :smiles:

Anyway I’m just curious if it hit 3x...

No. 2.5x was max. They didn't let it break the cap

Ya it did hit close to 3x... but like he said at around 3. When I was already in my comfy bed. I figure I rather go to bed early, get some rest, wake up early and get 1.8 CHURCH surges rather than 2.5 DRUNK surges. Sure it worked out for you. But I guarantee some driver last night almost got rapped near Texas Arizona. GUARANTEE! Not worthed.

No one cares about your work schedule. His question was already answered

There are rumors that Uber caps surge.

I think there's surge caps, but to say it's 2.5 is not it. MetLife hit 4.9 and stayed there so I'm guessing that's the cap there.
At the airport there is definitely a 2.5 surge cap, however I have recently seen a 3.4 at the airport. But that was also during that crazy surge issue last week.

That 3.4 didn't exist because the app was broken. During that issue if you saw any surge at EWR then actual surge was 0. Only when EWR was white, it was actually surging.

The cap exists and obviously it can break the cap, but it'll take either a huge event or weather related, like last night Hoboken was 3.0x.

Like I said, I have SEEN (actually received a request) for 3.4.
