OK. This is depressing. Friday Night. No Surge anywhere to be seen. Not even a yellow map. Have we entered the twilight zone?
UberHooptie is back in Chicago. I've seen them all over again like around Thanksgiving 2014. Yesterday I saw a 2-door Pontiac G6 that had seen better days too. But what do they expect at those rates?Here is a reason, he even tried getting in a one way street. How did this car get through the Uber inspection ? I mean, my car has some damages from city driving - scratches, dents and what not, but this is too much. 2001-2002 Mazda 3. Is this a car you do business with ?
....and raises the rates.---------The city is eventually going to catch on to the rust buckets that don't meet code.
there is no "code" to meet. you're golden as long as you have your decal, MEPA print-out, drivers license and pass the initial inspection (have some life in the pads, tread in the tires, you're car turns over, no cracks in the glass).
and don't drive more than 10 hours a day.
lots of turnover means Uber lowers the bar which means lots of cars on the road even with turnover which means little surge even on a friday.
and this will keep going until uber/lyft end the referral bonuses for noobs.
Uber in San Fran is aware of non surge issue happening in some markets. Dallas market no surge as well since implemented rate cuts implemented. No eta when it will be fixed. Drivers in Dallas just stopped driving last night around midnight. Heard pax were wondering around without rides.APP update eliminated all colors and surge. Please fix or we will not drive for long. Dominos hiring?
Hopefully riders write in and complain. Get a picture of the license plate next time.Here is a reason, he even tried getting in a one way street. How did this car get through the Uber inspection ?

History repeats itself. Surges use to be in quarter point fractions. Most typical surges were 1.75x to 2.75x, and often being 2.5x-3.5x. Then it went to the decimal point system. Most typical were 1.5x to 1.8x, with the frequent 2.1x or above. Now surges are mostly 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4x.Last night around midnight....surge finally appeared....at 1.3x! It would have HAD to go to AT LEAST 1.5x before I would even THINK about heading out again. Then, surge went DOWN....to 1.2x! LOL Hilarious!
