Same here. I was right in the middle of a blood red surge around 10 PM. Drove around old city, northern liberties, fishtown, no pings. Finally got a request at dave & busters going to cherry hill, no surge. On the way back I was about to log off and got a text from uber: "If you go to PHL Airport now, you can quickly receive a request. Wait times are short with only 5 partners waiting". So I did. Got a ping instantly - trip out to Valley Forge, $10 tip. Not a bad night.
i was in blood red surge at 4 pm yesterday from 1-95 to train station thur by way of market st 2+ surge not 1 ride. never in 2.5 years driving. i think its a fake surge imo...just like that 2.0 at phl they put on. u better better in a 10 car Q or less or 99 cars get thier and its off. what a tease. total waste of time. pay sucks at phl imho. ya sure u tips and far rides. but i got a CC in a very low Q . took 95 n to 11 market $14 you can have those long $1.10 mile rides with 100% dead miles back on week days very late..fridays and sat. u should get something everywhere early to offset dead miles
