I think I was one of the first to notice it and posted on the forum yesterday…

When a pool Kingwood coming and you would see the surge amount but not anymore

Yes we know that the passengers will pay a fixed price taking a pool ride this has been happening since day one of pool
But us drivers would still get the surge pricing

Now that it doesn't show I am suspecting that even us drivers will not get the surge prize but base fare !!!!

Can anyone post a screenshot that proves me wrong or right from the past day

Let's figure this out people before we take more rides

I believe that thread showed they were pool requests in the surge zone, but no actual surge pricing for the acceptance pinng.

First thing this morning:

UberX and Uber Pool

X is surging

And pool is doing what pool is doing

It's pretty obvious but here's what happened after the surge died down:

X dropped back to its regular price (duh!)

Pool price remained the same

It sure looks like they're keeping pool immune from surge prices. Uber has done this before. When they introduced UberX it undercut the hell out of Uber black (now select.) Now they're undercutting UberX trying to gain UberPool some legitimacy.
