Anybody else notice on Saturday the suggested pick up locations on the south side? It was very nice for people to be routed to meet the driver off of Carson St. Had 2 on Sat where it said suggested pick up at 17th and Bingham and 16th and Bingham. Easy to find them and easy to get out of there not having to deal with Carson St traffic

Decent suggestion by the app/Google/Waze but the problem there is finding a place to stop and wait. It's no parking on the right side of Bingham and it's tough to even find a place to pull over without holding up traffic. Definitely takes longer for your pax to find you on those side streets as well. Sometimes I'm 1/2 block off of Carson and it's like trying to guide a mouse to the cheese in talking to them on the phone lol like I'm literally just 30 feet off Carson come on!

Ugh south side is the worst. I know the surge gets nice on a Saturday night but I'd much rather be on the north shore or by rivers casino. South side is just one big cluster.

Problem I had was the app saying they were at 17th I get close call them and they say "I'm standing in front of Jacks at 12th I'm waving can you see me?"
So then starts the guessing game do I go pick them up knowing they might cancel en route and I'll lose this 3.9x, do I cancel now and hope for a better closer request, did the surge drop from 3.9x to 2.5x like it does sometimes? So take a quick look at the pax app do some quick math, the surge dropped its now about 3.5x so I take the chance and go to pick them up, almost there then they cancel. Next trip 3.0x Back to 15th st for a pick up.
