surge

  1. Complaints
    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-$15 for 3 rides or whatever value it is. Those rides notoriously take...
  3. Surge
    Hey guys! It's my first topic here so please excuse me if i have done something wrong. Since last month i was only working for Eats. In my area, uber only gives like x1.3 or 1x4 on busy times. Last month i have started with Drive, so now i am able to see surge for rides too, going up to 20$...

    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...

    Have any of you seen your surge disappear when you know it’s still there? I thought it was updating the area, but it will only reappear when I force close & reopen. I’ve also had Uber tell me my surge was half of what the cloud I was looking at showed. Why don’t they post the surge at the...

    Notice the heart shaped pattern! This was on Valentines Day. Tell me the Uber people do not create the surge for visual effect. Goal to get you to drive to it only to have it disappear! Notice... I am of course just outside of the “Surge” LOL!!!!! No I do not chase surge ... just thought this...

    I turned on my Uber app at 5:45am driving through a $3.25 surge. Hit the max sticky and message said +$3.25 minimum surge next ride. Surge goes off just before 6am, I wait until 6:24am to get my ride. A short trip, I finish and see $3.22 total earned. I do a few more rides thinking it will post...

    Surge at 1450. This is the most numerical areas I've seen in surge since the return of the multiplier. Pittance in value.

  19. News
    Lots of stories lately about Uber getting kicked out of this city or that. Plus with the ever decreasing rates for drivers, while Uber/Lyft takes the lion's share of the fares, in my opinion will only lead to the likelyhood that drivers will begin taking their business profits into their own...
