Surge pricing - Brisbane

Does anybody else have the issue where you see the surge area on the map and head for it and by the time you get just inside it, it disappears? It seems to happen a lot in suburban areas and not so much in Brisbane city - happened to me 4 times now and its so frustrating.

Check the pax app before moving your vehicle, it displays when the rate will expire and determine the amount of other cars driving towards it to gauge your decision whether or not to move. Surge typically only lasts 2 minutes except on Saturday night or events where it stays upto 10 mins. In most cases driving to a surge area takes longer than 2 minutes = No surge.
