fake surges

  1. Toronto (Ontario)
    They've been doing this a lot lately, for those of us not transitioned to Personal Power Zones (PPZ). It's misleading as it is Prime Time decoupled for actual demand. And if I recall correctly, you are just as likely to get non-PT rides in the full pink zone. I believe the actual red blob in...
