Center of that surge is basically The Bluffs and SWAT. Theres a reason its surging there, reasonable drivers dont drive there. Other than that, the residual surge seems to be pretty much all within where id expect them, especially vinings.
As an old white guy, I don't have any issues picking up or dropping off in that area. I am a school teacher in that area during the day, so I know my way around and know the specific spots I need to stay away from. I get appreciative passengers and good ratings. Women from south Dekalb tear my rating up for some reason. I can do a pickup there and my rating always goes down.
