    Time after time I will get a regular fare ride to somewhere that will pull me away from surge pricing. I'm not talking about near 2am when I know the surge will hit. I'm talking about near 7pm and near 10 or 11pm when I'm not always sure but I consistently see this happen to me! It's like I have trouble being patient and take the fate instead of waiting. Problem is that I see how many other drivers are around and think that it will not happen? Any thoughts?

    Happens to me too. I've been in the surge price area more times than I can count and don't receive a request until the surge price disappears or someone from outside the area requests. I stopped wasting gas chasing colors the other week.

    The only surge plan that ever really paid off for me was a 3.1-3.5 surge that was going on in Chapel Hill 2 weeks ago. Surged for HOURS, not seconds! The rest of them disappear like a phantom in the night LOL BUT I've learned how to disappear too :) sometime I play the surge at its own game!
    I did manage to get 3 surge fares in a row in Raleigh last night from 2-3a. 1 downtown and the other 2 in Glenwood South.
