yea somewhat busy but since 6pm, all the ants are out creating no surge. Emails about one of the busiest days yea just to get a huge amount of drivers so passengers would have no surge. They know what they are doing, ant on for peanut money! Over and out...

Started my day mid afternoon, it was busy and had moderate surge, mostly 1.5 - 1.8. Then had some low 2.x after 1:00a, but only had short rides.

Looking at it now at 4:00A though, I'm seeing tons of great 2.8-2.9 DT & Near North!

Anyway, long day but grossed a little under 3 bills in fares and tips, while barely using a little over a half tank and 150 miles.That's 12-13 bucks in gas. I'm blown away by how I was able to keep in the DT and close to DT area all night. First time I managed that, then got super lucky and caught an end-of-nite 1.6 surge back to the burbs right by me house.

Looking at my numbers I averaged 1.6 surge over my fares on a busy nite - 29 trips. So it looks like the 35 ride incentive is in the bag.

Can't really complain.

Friday afternoon it usually starts early and at night nearly always dies off around 7 until 930 or so. Managed to squeeze in 4 quick trips between work, a mtg and flying out from 3-5 yesterday, surges were all 1.5-2. One was 2.2. 50 minutes, $36, I'll take it! Last Tuesday though, still in shock at that! Made my week, killed my morning before office gym routine, but oh well!

Yeah, but it might be a helluva' finish!

I left DT around 8:00p, and it was pretty moderate.

Now look at it as of the time of my post!

2-3 years ago night weekend driving was good, not with the different crowd of passengers its a whole new animal now, not worth driving into the early morning and then sleeping wasting ur weekend away.
