Should we be able to double/triple dip on Uber? X+XL+Select etc?

I sometimes turn on X when it surges around 3x, I usually snag a decent ride out of it. However I feel kind of dirty because I am snagging that ride from full time X drivers. Maybe X+XL isn't bad, but SUV+Black+Select, or Select+X seems unfair to the full timers on each of those.

I think driver saturation would be less, or seem less if they had drivers stick to one platform, I like being able to double dip, but others probably double dip on me as well.

Not sure how that's double dipping since you're still only occupying 1 fare at a time. If the surge is truly due to high demand then the other X's should be busy too and your not taking anything from anyone.
What better? 3+ surge on X where you only pay 20% to Uber or standard Select and you give up 28%? Gotta do what makes the most since for you.

In my market, uber doesn't want to give drivers select only ot xl only accounts anymore. Driving multiple platforms at once reduces the chance of surge.

I think drivers should do what is most profitable to them
