Man the surge from that concert last night looked crazy! I wish I could've been driving but I actually took an Uber there and back. We (wife & I) actually left early since I wake up early as hell in the morning for airport runs lol.

But I saw sooooo many uber drivers in the parking lot and at the gas station across but none showed up on the app. Probably because there was no surge. You can definitely spot a rookie who takes a non-surge trip in that situation, but I can't be mad because it save me money lol. I bet everyone was waiting on that surge to hit 3 before they went online lol but that's wussup! If Uber was smart they would release a list of concerts in the city for the week so drivers can plan around them. Rather than showing the pin in the concert location on the night of.

Who got in on that surge??!

Do drivers really hold out for surge now? That's good know your worth...

I saw the surge hit 5.0x, but I have never had any luck chasing surge, and no offense, but no one in Hartford is paying 5.0x fares, so I felt it would've been a wasted trip over there.
