Fake surge/messed up app


Well-Known Member
Showing surge of 2.3 for over an hour but nothing on the rider app. I could post rider and driver app pics every 10 mins for the last hour to show this isn't a 2 minute lag issue but here's a sample. Wondering if any newbies drove for miles for this. Hope they brought lube!

This was happening tonight in Chicago the entire map was never updated and the numbers never changed,

I took 5 trips from 5 surge area and only two of them ended up being fares at a surge price.

That was 2 hours ago. I logged in to check the map and think about going out for another 2 hours and it still all red but the numbers have changed.

The eight trips I've taken today lowered my weekly per trip rate from 7.58 to 7.01
