.. I hope so

Look at the radar. Ants if you are online log off and help your fellow drivers.

Melbourne is about to take a bucketing. Hopefully flows to the east at 5PM

Stay safe and bless anyone doing EATS tonight :D

Rubbish nite.

Anyone noticed when you go online the surge area disappears now??
Been doing that for AGES now.... Driving towards a surge while online and the 'surge' window gets smaller as you get closer to it.

Its a joke! I've even noticed lately I have a feeling even if 'offline' but the partner app is open, it factors you in as it knows your 'sitting' and waiting...... Just a feeling as I've seen the surge window shrink on the angle I've came in when OFFLINE!

I scored a 1.4 to brunswick, then a stacked job that took me FAR FAR AWAY, so missed all the action!!! :(

Got back and picked up a 1.2x and few other jobs.

Basically topped off my crap morning with a crap evening.

I'm not sure why I bother most days now to even go out.

I had two 2.0 surges tonight with two lower surges later on. It was slightly below average - more of a building night (building up the numbers before the big weekend).

They were partying hard. You just didn't stay out long enough. There were surges most of the night except once you get out of the surge area it is hard to get back in. I did pick up a 2.8 surge trip for $39 though. It wasn't quite your weekend numbers, but they were there.

Problem with weeknights is while you may get a long trip from the CBD to Ringwood you won't get anything back so you lose 30% of your profits

Weeknights are a waste of time

I would love a trip from CBD to Ringwood :D
Most of my weekend trips are Ringwood to City. Last time a few weeks ago on a 2.6 surge got like $95 but even that is getting harder.
Most surges are short trips :oops:
