The rollout was in Seattle for business accounts only, not the everyday UberX rider. That comes later.
If surge is in effect at the time of the scheduled ride, we will get the surge price.
Yeah, I don't see how much would change on our end...maybe puber will add an additional penalty level for declining 'reserved' rides. Or maybe they should automatically assign them to select, or something.This will have little or no effect on us. Just another ping.
Then it's totally useless.It is for the closest driver but it probably gives priority to the rider over riders without a reservation.
