    I don’t go chasing surges, and here is a good example of why. I sat in the middle of a hefty surge after my last ride took me in it. Never got a ride. Took 10 minutes for that surge to go away on the app.

    If I hadn’t gotten a few surges before I would think it was fake lol

    A lot of pax wait till it goes away. Doesn't take long as a lot of new drivers will chase it downi saw a lot of young college kids shivering out in the cold last winter in front of night club waiting for the 1.2x to disappear

    I use Lyft and Uber...when one surges I shut the other off....same as riders use both apps to see which is cheaper.... lately sometimes I do get surge ride only to have it cancel in a minute or two probably when they found a non surge ride on the other app...now I race to get there and hit arrived so they can't cancel...

    Funny...Butt...it IS like a ticking bomb...

    Waiting and rushing...

    And hoping the dreaded CANCEL....

    Doesn't appear just before we arrive...

    And the rates are now a pittance...

    Compared to what the were...

    When I started...

    I'm thinking Uber has won...

    The RACE TO THE BOTTOM...

    congratulations Uber...NOT!!!
