new surge

  1. New Jersey
    I work EWR very often. There are many issues at EWR that are widely reported elsewhere in this forum. So don’t need to beat that dead horse again. But lately I’ve been concentrating on LYFT because I get more pings than with Screwber. This has been the case since before Thanksgiving. I always...
  2. Pay
    I got a unique perspective of how the new Surge can be manipulated to maximize Uber's income while minimizing driver pay. I fly to Houston every Sunday night and take an Uber from the airport to my hotel downtown. The fare is always between $30 and $35 with no surge or traffic. This past Sunday...
  3. Houston
    How much is the typical payment from Terminal C at Bush to Downtown (near Wells Fargo Tower) at night w no surge or traffic? I’m a 2800+ ride driver who flew into Houston Sunday night. Because of the apps I have (Uber passenger, Uber Driver, Surge 2x) I was able to get a good look at the new...

    Covering it all in one swoop. With the need BS surge, if DRIVERS are gonna fight back then the most critical time to not drive/get shifty is rush hour. 7-9am and 5-7pm. Boycott or play hard ball in the Main Areas. Downtown/Buckhead. I understand everybody can't just flat out quit so this is...
  5. San Francisco
    Right. So let's do the math at 6pm... This is not an uncommon request from the FiDi. Historically, during rush hour this has been a $30- $40 ride. Based on new pay scheme with $3.75 surge, taking PAX from The Ferry Bldg to SFO will pay out roughly $25.75 (35 min 14 mi). Uber collects...
  6. Atlanta
    So here's what i figured out so far...but still need to try. A 2.0 surge would pay u 8 bucks on a minumum distance/fare trip. So now when u see the $4.00 surge ammount, WHEN U END UP WHEREVER U WERE GOING, the trip should pay double. I know how much i should be getting from Dunwoody to the...

    ehat are the chances that FUber will send me a request over a driver near by with NO surge bank?!

    What do you consider an acceptable minimum surge these days? I’ve seen a range between $1 (equivalent of tipping a bartender for one beer) and $50 (NW burbs last Saturday as an event was ending and it was raining). Saw some $15 surges during the morning rush last week when it was raining...
  9. Washington DC
    XL only was surging up to $29.. Right after the rain and Nats & Kennedy Center let out... I got a $28 surge but no rides for 20 minutes.. but I was patient and eventually got this beauty. $36.83 for 1.42 mile trip.. $28 in surge.. and BEST YET.. Uber LOST almost $21!!!
  10. Washington DC
    Based on limited experience with the New Surge, I may have figured out part of the reason we get extra Surge. If you get a drive-thru $4 Sticky Surge and Mario Kart it to an area where rider pays base, you could drive them to Cleveland and you'd only get $4. If you get a Sticky Surge, the ping...
  11. Boston
    The Washington Post did an article on the white supremacists rally here Sunday. Reporter came to good old UPNet and got some feedback about the rally. Someone was able to slide in something about Charlotte Surge...
  12. Surge
    Look through some of the other threads and didn’t see the answer so was wondering if anyone knows — sorry if I’ve missed the answer somewhere . Drove through the surge earlier but didn’t get request so I circled home and had that $6.00 surge for about 10 minutes; now if the bloke who just rode...
  13. Complaints
    Have not had the pleasure of Ubers new surge yet, but am experiencing it on Lyft. At first I thought it was simply to steal more of drivers pay. But there's more to it... 1. Steal more of driver's pay. 2. Tie the driver down. If you log off or reject a ride, you lose that guaranteed bonus. 3...
  14. Advocacy
    Uber drivers have been taken advantage of over and over again. From flooded markets, fake surges, no increase in rates with gas increases (Uber got theirs), to now a broken app and testing in markets with low pay. It is time for Drivers to Unite and make a stand, United! We will coordinate...
  15. Phoenix
    Uber's NEW Surge is TOTAL BULLSHIT and a rip-off! Uber continues to be the long time known dishonest partner, despite all the promises they made to improve.. Absolutely NOTHING has improved, actually quite the opposite is the case - everything has taken a turn for the worse !!! Fuel prices are...
  16. Surge
    Hey fellow drivers! I was just curious on how drivers with the new Surge did this St Patty’s? Do you feel better/worse about it after? Any screenshots? Thanks in advance!
  17. New Jersey
    First time I'm seeing this on my home screen. Anyone else? A sign of things to come? I'm still able to see and get surge with multiplier, though.
