Guess that Addison Kaboom Town is paying off. 2.0-2.2x surge. But I'd never do that again. You can't get out of there for 2+ hours because every street is blocked by stupid Addison and Carrollton cops.
First thing to know, never chase surgesI wasn't going to drive tonight but saw the surge at 3.0 for Addison at midnight. it took me about 15 minutes to get there and the surge was suddenly over. I'm new to Uber, only been doing it a few weeks so this was the first big surge I saw...I stayed in the area and stayed busy for 2 hours, right around 2am it surged 2.3 but then right back down.
I didn't know that last year, but I was working my real job and got stuck there and decided to flip the app on. Took me an hour to get to my pax 6 blocks away. They were going less than a mile (seriously!), then had a request at 6x but I never got to them because of all the road closures so they cancelled. Last ride out was a family of 5 trying to pack themselves plus kids plus strollers into my Ford Fusion and the surge was only 1.5x. I told them only 3 because of strollers and they agreed.Sucker. Everyone knows to avoid kaboom town. Rideshare or taxi.
Honestly 3X is weak. That shit should be 7X.
That's the worst traffic management I have ever seen.
They pretty much block off every side street and the Addison Airport Toll Tunnell.Worse than WrestleMania at JerryWorld? I'd have to see that to believe it.
Addison fireworks was the worst I've seen. Tried to pickup XL on Belt Line and I was on the tollway. Went several miles north then turned around and was about to exit Spring Valley when he finally canceled. I was even cursing badly and forgot I had called the pax on speakerphone, but I think he may not have picked up. Nothing worse than wasting money on the tollway, extra tolls at that, for a canceled ride.Worse than WrestleMania at JerryWorld? I'd have to see that to believe it.
