I was on south Congress last night during 3x surge and not a single Uber ping. For the surge to be that high, based on how Uber explains surge pricing, there had to have been a ton of riders and barely any drivers in that area. Surge fail!
You fell for the oldest trick in the book Uber use's to move drivers around the city were needed with fake surges...you know better now

Now that Drivers have the ear of the media, its good to keep the info flowing. One thing that media loves to report is fraud lol.

Now, we all know that that UBERs surges are a bunch of BS. It would be hard to prove though, since we don't have access to UBERs servers.

We can look at the basic principle behind the surges, the law of supply and demand. UBER is saying because the supply of "rides" is lower than the demand for "rides" price must go up.

If this was a real ratio, it would include all "rides" available in the city...not just UBER. UBERs model acts as if it has a monopoly, that it is the only source of "rides" in the city.

There are "rides" available outside of UBER, such as lyft, taxi, or even busses. In other words, there is a supply of "rides" that UBER does not calculate into its surge ratio. The true supply of "rides" being higher than what UBER is acknowledging is, in my opinion, fraudulent.

So long as UBER does not include all "rides" in the supply side, their surges will always be false, by definition.

Using false numbers to gouge Riders...bad UBER!
What are you taking about, Uber ONLY WORRY'S ABOUT UBER RIDERS. The surge is when the demand for rides is higher then the number of drivers....

the price go's up......simple
