Not here, but it would be a gamechanger if they came back. Only way I'll drive late weekends.

Yesterday morning I noticed the multiplier surge made a mysterious appearance a couple of times here in the dairyland capital. I know there have been a couple other posts about this phenomena and wondering if anyone has noticed any sort of pattern?
I've seen it on my app, but any surge I had last night while actually driving was in dollar form.

It's the app messing up, restart... I think Uber is prepping on switching back Nationwide. Since Cali issues...

Every time I put the app on it displayed porn, always doggy position.

During football season, another Madison comrade had actual multiplier surge trips on a Saturday night after a Badger game. He posted a couple screenshots in the Madison forum.
we had it in south florida too...but our screens showed both $ and multiplier at the same time. I only caught $ surges
Both times I saw it the screen showed both the flat and multiplier surge as well.

I have seen it in Flint and Detroit areas. I just assumed it was a glitch. Has anyone, from here, actually earned on these elusive multipliers, recently?

As he said, we had a discussion in the Miami forum about this. This is a pump fake by uber. The multiplier shown never stuck when riding over it. I have had a few rides in an area with the fake multiplier.

the conclusion is that the multiplier is actually the “rider surge” and it is appearing on the uber driver app. The driver flat surge Will usually be near the rider multiplier surge.

TLDR: uber is paying drivers $4 while charging riders 2.9x the normal rates. They’ve always done this but now you get painfully reminded with this inclusion in the uber driver app. Enjoy your driving.

The rider is paying 2.5 times the normal rates and dara is tossing you $3. Enjoy
