More Uber Fuzzy Math here?
Maybe we should consult our resident PhD mathematician ubersan on this one...

Why are both showing? Bart McCoy ..

Someone explain this.. Is Uber double dipping with Surge + Boost? Thought we got higher of the two?

What is supposed to happen if the Boost is equal to the Surge in the Reward Zone?

^ correct...and at 2.0x+ surge, the driver would see no boost payment at all.

Never forget that uber wants to make just as much money off its passengers as it does its drivers. Expect to see 2x surge almost 24/7 starting August 1st in DC while everyone's on boost as uber makes more money when it's surging via more pax payment + less driver free money payouts, while overpaying drivers a bit when it's slow for coverage, but pax still get a ride cheaper than cab rates all the time.
