  2. Washington DC
    Had to drive down to DC this morning. Seeing nothing but red and yellow. Is that every morning? And its not just the city surging... its the counties around it too. A 50 miles radius from Bestheda all the way to Suitland. Congrats to anyone who calls Dc their market.

    Hello, Are there any working apps out there that have historical surge data and/or notify you when surge is occurring? If not, can you get access to this data via the Uber API?

    What is up with Uber this last month in Charlotte NC? Surge is minimal yet there are so many people out on the weekend. Uber makes us chase the surge only to disappear or not award the surge when you arrive at the designated location. I’d like to hear how you are handling this latest game by Uber.

    Sign the Petition The whole issue is thoughtfully outlined in the petition, with links to the only article that shows a similar case, and many threads of people experiencing a random elimination of surge. I went from 800 to 1400 deliveries and I haven't received 100 percent of surges I had an...

    You are here because you want to make money! I will tell you how you should do your job as an Uber Driver right, if you're a part timer for Uber then this thread is not for you. Which car should I use? DO NOT use your own vehicle, you will be paying more than you are earning in terms of car...

    It’s no shock that Uber is playing the surge game in Charlotte with the drivers. Last month there were less people requesting rides and surge was between $10 - $30. Looking at the app tonight on 11 July 2021, I won’t even start my car and go out. I called a friend and he said it was crazy busy...

    Looks like DIDi’s taken a Leaf out of Ubers book by not show actual surge amount paid in after fare finished info. DIDi shows it on the request yet it states nothing in the info. Very non transparent DIDi, drivers are the thing you need at the moment & non transparency only pees them off…

    I'm in the Raleigh-Durham, NC USA market. Anyone else here or elsewhere find that Uber plays games with Surge? They show it as one amount, you drive there and they see you driving to that area and the $ amount goes down or away entirely even if w/in 5 min or less? I'm over it. THIS is not a...

    You know how uber resets our points every quarter? Why don't they also reset our stats? I have a cancelation rate of over 20%. I know that's my fault, but I'll be honest. I cherry pick often on weekends. I don't like those $3-$15 for 3 rides or whatever value it is. Those rides notoriously take...
  15. Surge
    Hey guys! It's my first topic here so please excuse me if i have done something wrong. Since last month i was only working for Eats. In my area, uber only gives like x1.3 or 1x4 on busy times. Last month i have started with Drive, so now i am able to see surge for rides too, going up to 20$...

    I don’t know how anyone is handling things or how the stupid virus is where ever you are. One thing I can bet is that you hate how Ubet/Lust is handling things. It’s not surging here (Detroit) because perhaps people are attracted to the quests. I don’t find doing 70 runs for an extra $200 very...

    Why are you guys accepting even a SINGLE ride for less than 1.3x surge??? You clowns are ruining it for us. Their choice is pay us what we want(a respectable pay) or hope the next driver is stupid enoufh to give them a better price(guess what most of you will) i can do 3 rides and still make...

    ... the end is near. So for drivers that are collecting this unemployment now, this is more targeting to you, but all drivers can comment. The 600 a week will be ending at the end of this month. Will you be returning? Are you all getting ready to resume past driving habits? And if you’re not...

    I was driving south on the 5 when on the app I saw a promo ahead. I hadn't received an email so I clicked on it. I didn't receive any offers in the zone but the offer screen showed the new fare with the reduced Uber fee.The Uber fee reduction is a misnomer as the reduction is on the entire...
