With all the traffic tonight, my crystal ball(s) tells me we'll have a great surge. Be smart and wait for it ;-)

Surges are 75% fake. Not saying they don't exist in some way but not in the way that the are described or the way they used to, etc. Just another Uber manipulation trick....pathetic.

Before the fare-decrease, the faux-surge was the thing that finally pushed me over the edge. Welcome to Uber land, the land of the Uber-Lie. The surges are phony. They have been proven to be manipulated by uber people NOT on the ground driving cars, but rather sitting behind a desk and predicting when an area will be in high demand. There will almost always be a surge downtown when the bars let out, but it doesn't mean there are enough pax to fill the cars on the road. Rather than being a matter of MATH (supply & demand), it is a guess by Uber. What happens is we often end up wasting time and gas driving around the surge zone waiting for a call that never comes. Its a scam, and when the pax catch on it will be hell for Uber.
