Finally I Got A Surge!


Active Member
First surge I've seen in 3 weeks! It was only $1.50, but it was a surge! I was smack dab in the middle of it. I waited for 10 minutes and NO PINGS! WTF! Right after it went away, I get a ping, I still got the $1.50, but that was it. The next 3 trips were back to back, but no sure. I don't understand this surge stuff. What triggers it? I thought it was more demand than supply, but when I don't get a ping, I makes me go hmmmmm.

When there is no true high demand, they apply surge to reposition the drivers to where they want them. Plenty of drivers chase surge that doesn't really exist. BTW, congrats on your $1.50 surge.
