Surges

I think uber is taken surges of away. Where I live there are 2 high schools that when kids get out they create a surge for everyone else exactly at 3pm. I'm not looking to pick up a kid but always get a good from older PAX. Anyone noticing this? Both schools are open, 0 surges very unusually.

First off, of course you’re picking up kids.

I've noticed the lack of surge in the Somerville Bridgewater area this week. Every morning there's been a surge between 7:30 and 8:30 this week nothing. No surges in the New Brunswick, Piscataway,Somerset area this morning, that is odd.

Have you guys seen how many drivers are on the roads lately? This guy literraly drove 25 minutes to pick up a pax at six flags, middle of f'n nowhere, and drove them 10 miles to Freehold bus stop....No surge obviously.

I am sorry but did you say you drove 25 minutes for a pickup? I wouldn't drive that far to pickup my wife. Ridesharing is cheap, I just tell her to call which ever is cheapest.

I think I got some evidence Fuber is screwing with us on surges, picked pax up around 3:15 pm get $3:71 - Uber gets $4.86. See pic# 1. There is/was always a surge going on at that time and I've seen the surge go to 2.8x, Pic#2 pick up around 1:40 I get $3.71 uber gets $1.12 and it's rare to see a surge at that time. Tell me they're not screwing me. I don't need to drive if they're going steal money, especially when gas prices are up 20% and will continue to climb. Also noticing that 6:30 am - 8:30 am commuters to NYC trains again no surges. Something going on, thoughts?

Oh, they are screening you royally! I would fire off an email to governor Murphy. I wonder if you are the only one, or are more drivers getting this treatment as well? I’m aghast!

If you are still hungry, Friday nights rock around the clock at the Deal Casino. Many high rollers, nowhere near enough black cars, so they grab X rides. Also, if it is too early for the high rollers to be leaving the casino, try the navy road, aka Normandy Road. The sailors from the port side ships are always there requesting rides. It will fill the bucket nicely.
To the haters who always tag on me for mentioning these 2 honey holes, put a cork in your pie hole. This is everyone’s chance to share the wealth.

Not me but some schmuck in a red camry. The people requested the ride, I saw them, I got the request, did my trick to figure out where they're going and then watched them wait 25 minutes for the driver to come drive them 10 miles

Every year, when summer starts coming around, you let people know about Normandy road... I get you’re trying to help people but save some $$$ for the locals!
