10.8 in Las Vegas
3.9x during USC's graduation ceremony. Payout was $58 on UberX
3.9x Atlanta ga
I think surging is going away in Atlanta for uber x drivers.
4.4 atlanta uber x is the highest ive seen highest taken is 3.9 but short trip
Highest I've SEEN is a 9.0x in Memphis during our annual Memphis in May Music Festival. Two Uber reps were in town and the senior of the two told me that they had decided to put a "cap" on the surge at 9.0x. It stayed in the 7.5-9.0 range for probably 90 mins (which we all know is quite unusual for a surge -- esp one that everyone knew was coming -- to hang around for that long before the supply/demand begins to equalize).
I made a rather short trip on 7.5x that night, but did a 24-mile uberXL trip later that month at 4.5x. I hang on to that memory as inspiration for how things "can be"...lol.
8.9 New Year's Eve Dallas Tx market
He was it will never be that high.
8.9 in Center City Philadelphia on NYE two years ago. I was paying 2.5 coming back from South Philly and considered myself lucky. Read on Twitter the next day about how many people felt like they got screwed because they agreed to a $75 minimum fare when they were hammered and cold.
4.9 is the highest I have seen
I"ve seen 8s and 9s in metro Detroit. I wonder though, do pax actually take those rides and pay nine times normal fares?
9.8 Hoboken new years eve
I got a 7.4x at the G'nR show in SD but the guy canceled after I confirmed it would cost him $100 to take him 10 miles home. Can't blame him. I got a decent 3.7x ride home a couple pings later. $75, good enough.
New Year’s Eve surge pricing enrages Uber users; one man hit with $1,100 fare
