Surge rates are also, according to some info Uber has released, also based on historical data and how many people have the app open. Since there are few cars and little demand usually in that area, I think historical data has a larger than normal effect on the algorithm.

In any case, it's getting impossible to catch surges on either Lyft or Uber, since most pax now have both apps, and instead of waiting them out, switch apps.

I only caught one lyft surge rate today despite Sundays usually being good. Haven't caught an Uber surge in a month...

Try figuring out Lyft surges where a couple of blocks light up and it says 25%-75%. Makes no sense.

I do know as soon as I drive into one, it disappears in a minute or two.
