Live in Charlotte and just went online at 4am this morning to do my normal Monday routine of taking someone from the burbs to the airport as I head to my flight. Flight wasn't until 8 so had some extra time so drove into downtown to take another rider or two back to airport before I needed to park. Do this when I have flights later than my normal 6am flight. Dropped the first passenger off and downtown was flowing orange and red. Zoomed in to see $ amounts from $6-$12, no surge percentages. Odd... Pulled out of departures area and immediately got a ride opportunity. The screen showed the location and actually showed the surge colors on the location map during the pinging (included the different levels of shading so that I could see which color of rad she was in). I don't remember seeing that before. Drove over and picked the lady up and drove her downtown to her office. As soon as I started her trip, another opportunity pinged with all kinds of numbers in the ping box, couldn't see them all, but was 10 minutes away, and she was going 8, so I knew it was close and accepted it. Bear in mind, I haven't seen the map for 6-8 minutes since pulling out from airport. Drop lady off, pick up new rider and delivered to airport. Looked at map after ending trip and downtown still surging. Cut off my app so I could park and head in the airport. Got in and reviewed my history for the 3 rides and noticed the second 2 (that both were accepted with surge amounts) had no surge earnings listed and my portions were exactly what the normal amount I would normally receive were. One was minimum $3 and the last was $6.90. Very normal cost for non-surge. I opened the "Fare Details" for each and noticed the customers paid $19 and $29, respectively. No mention of surge anywhere. Uber collected large surge amounts and total fees of $49 while I received <$10. I've emailed Uber about this, but no response yet. Those 2 rides usually cost the rider $5 and $11-$12, respectively. Odd thing is, there is not mention of surge anywhere in the Fare Details, none. Barring some glitch, this new surge method is going to rape us, plain and simple. They can't argue I didn't pick up another rider after the surge in order to make the money, because I did pick one up after the first surge passenger. Even if that is a requirement to receive a surge, what sense does that make? I only do this here and there when I'm heading in a direction and there's few/no drivers out but fleecing the rider and not sharing the rewards is flat out wrong. This will greatly harm folks that do this full time and depend on it. Why accept a rider that XX minutes or XX miles away due to a posted $2 increase on the ride, when an area is surging and you know there will be higher priced rides closer to you? Another odd item worth noting... I went online and drove Sat night from 10:30pm until 2:20am downtown Charlotte most of the night and received not one surge fare/opportunity. That was the first time that's ever happened. Coincidence?
