I regularly have issues with surge map not showing or refreshing. Sometimes a zoom in or zoom out, or a switchover to earnings screen, will get it to refresh.

Welcome to the club ‘80’s..... you finally got that surge map going. Now I have to say good bye surge, welcome base...... the secret is not a secret anymore. Greg was keeping it for himself and of course Koolbreez as well ( he actually encouraged us to take base rate so he can work that surge longer......I knew it all the time).
 
Why would uber or Lyft want to eliminate surge? Don’t they make more money from the fares as well?
I think we are seeing Less and Less surge due to the amount of drivers on the road. Every year it increases, I counted 47 Lyft/uber drivers from Belmont and broadway to Addison and broadway yesterday around 4pm. 45 cars !!! In just a few blocks. Insane!

Been going on for months with me. Always have to zoom in / shut off and turn phone back on / close and reopen app.

There will be surge just a dollar amount you will soon see.just read Boston and d.c. posts
I saw that but don't really understand how that works, what will the dollar amount be based on? Say that it says $3.00 so will that be $3 extra on a 3 mile trip or on a 20 mile trip or 3X more or what?

Uber is pretty confident after Consecutive Trips succes to try Lyfts failure, the flat rate surge.

It will be $3.00 on the next ping they send that you must accept and its 3 bucks if its a 3 block trip or a 300 minute trip

Uber doesn't make more money paying surge; those days of uber making a % of what we make have been gone for over a year now. They make it charging more and paying drivers as little as possible.
