Do all the ride classes surge together?


Well-Known Member
I have a friend who's been doing Uber black SUV for quite a while. He told me that when the prices are surging it's best to shut off any classes of rides that you can do above plain old uberX because sometimes exes surging while the others aren't. That seems odd to me.

I have a vehicle that can do X and XL, and it occurred to me that at times when the prices are surging really high it would make sense to shut off the pool and X rides and only drive XL. That is assuming that all the ride classes search together. I wish I had done that for the snow storm we had here in New Jersey on December 15th. The rates were already surging five to six times.
