The new surge system - is there really any such thing as more than the minimum amount?

With the new surge system, they app always advertises a "minimum of +$x.xx" implying that it could be more for a long trip. Has anyone done a long-ish trip from a surge zone and gotten more than the minimum? I've had just one ride from a surge area and it was short, so I got the minimum.

Definitely! Check the main forum for examples. The important part is that the pax orders when the surge is active. Keep in mind that the pax screen and the driver screen don’t update at the same pace. The surge on the driver app will still show after the pax price has dropped to base. If you have sticky surge it will never increase beyond the flat amount.
