It isn't too many drivers. Demand has cratered because it is summer. Taxi driving is seasonal work.

I sat in a 2x surge for half an hour yesterday in this exact area and did not get a single ping.

Folsom is surging 1.5 to 2x daily

On the bright side, if I can put myself in the middle of a 5 minutes circle I never get distance calls

Hey guys new to the forum. I've been doing this for 18 months and I see the oversaturation.

Right now I'm looking online an no matter what part of Sacramento I look there are 5 to 10 available drivers just waiting. How can any of us expect to make any money?

There is now a driver every 10 minutes in my suburb. That means I never have to drive more than 9 minutes to pick up my furst passenger. The calls are much less frequent, but they're all a lot closer, and since I start from home that's actually working out pretty well for me. Demand has increased out here.

Won't last long, it's just everyone who signed up to collect the signup bonus, question is how long it'll go on (as long as it takes for people to get their 20 rides in).
