I think Guber turned the surge dial down. After the guarantee ends I don't see surge much above 2x even though I'm sure lot of drivers went home at 8pm. Also, surge disappears and moves around so quick it's just not worth working those hrs when boost hrs are so much easier to deal with.
With the surge alert gone on the pax app, I wish eeewber will stop the metal incentives. I believe it will surge a lot more. Imagine a drunk pax looking at the app not seeing a surge, but can't really tell that they are paying $25 to go 3 miles.
