Surge is a disaster to Sel and XL.

    When it's surging if it's 1.5x and up, basically there's no sense to request a Sel or XL since Black and SUV prices become lower than those two. Surge literally deletes those two platforms. It's ridiculous why the surge is built this way.

    The surge pretty much guarantees the Sel/XL pax to Black and SUV, the already top earners.

    It's depressing knowing this.

    They do....just on a different surge grouping.

    Back in the day select was on a different group for surge and I used to order that instead of a surged X of over 2.0.

    It's all about getting good value.

    Ah okies, I see.. yeah,when I see a select for $30, and then black suv for $27, or course I would pick a spacious gmc yukon with a pro driver over a lancer with an amateur.

    I have....look at Halloween or when the surge goes to 3X on X like a snowstorm. You will find Black surge but at a different and lower rate. Used to happen more in the days when we used to get surges on a Friday and Saturday night. Now it's a lot less frequent but for sure they surged and still do on occasion.

    You mean not real uber select? Chevy Volt specially with it’s size definitely is not a select ride ;) who cares about your tiny tiny ride that riders keep bumping their head to the roof. Just check out Lyft Lux and premier list:

    I think we are talking about your car not mine. And you assume this is my only vehicle.

    Don’t worry if you see my car you will go silent forever on this forum. It’s equal size of 4 volt!
    And 100 times more luxury than your short roof voltage ;) It seems you like humiliation!

  14. Uber did this same crap in the ATL market. Select no longer surges with X after relentless complaints from Select drivers. I suggest you do the same in your market.

    I remember those days like yesterday. Never would except select calls from those trying to play the system. I use to scream “homey don’t play datttt” and take my UberX at 2.8’s and above instead.

    That was sold a year and half ago and was Ford Fusion black with leather having select category ;). Since then I changed 2 vehicles. Trust me if you see my car you are going to get heart attack! When and where? Air Canada Center today? I will call an ambulance ahead so you could survive in the case of heart attack:))

    Why won't you just say what it is, possibly post a pic, instead of all the drama?

    You're hardly giving away your ID by saying the make/model of the car you drive.
