Since it's likely uber will cap surges, and the gas prices are much higher and availability of fuel will be limited, they should contribute by offering all drivers a boost rate to compensate those willing to drive. The boost should at least bring the rate to $1.25 per mile!

Tolls are suspended. Lyft is still charging tolls. But Uber is not. Uber will probably suspend its service soon.

A boost to placate drivers temporarily is like stringing out junkies on a free dose or like a wife beater bringing his spouse a bouquet of apology roses.

I'm not driving in September...

I drew that line in the dirt a long time ago. First year I drove a taxi indy... September rolled around and i was like "did i make a huge mistake?"

My first year at mears... I was barely able to make it work. I went Winter park fleet and somehow made my shifts sort of work out with renting a $66 9:00 PM winter park car and going out to UCF/Rollins. But this was before the days of uber, ya know when the UCF/Rollins kids actually called taxis?

The days of doing that are long gone thou.

If i had to, i'd be in pine hills waiting for rides this time of year.
