The plot thickens. Maybe there has been a minor issues with driver shortages on weekends.I got an email for gurranted fares last weekend but haven't received anything for this weekend.
There was a surge but for some bizarre reason the driver app wasn't updating fast enough. I did manage to do 2 short mild surge rides in the East.5:55 pm on a Friday, and Sydney is totally surge free...
Seems like they've managed to convince a lot of extra drivers onto the roads so far...
6:30, just checked again. No surge..
Sometimes I will set destination to a surge area and drive towards it but rare to get a ride towards a surge zone. Demand is usually away from the surge zoneSurge and guaranteed minimum wage day dreamers.....
Out of curiosity, I turn on app (Saturday night) after 6:30pm. Sydney is well on surge. The app allocates first job, 21 mins away in southern shire??? Huh?
Who'd be mad to drive 21 mins to pick up a shire pax? I let it time out.
One min later, another ping 25 mins away? Miranda???
Is the app trying to drag me away from core areas?
Just curious, do you live out that way? I have a theory that I've never had a job that far west because the app knows my home address is inner west.I got my highest fare ever this weekend. City to quackers hill at 1.5 surge. That was pretty good. Enough to end it there for the night.
