you Just have to love those repositioning “surges”. Dear boober, when I’m just right on the edge of a surge multiple times a day your game becomes obvious. Step it up you clowns. Make those engineers earn their six figure salaries

When the only car in an area gets a run and there are no Select or XL cars nearby, the system will initiate a 1.2x-1.3x surge. It is just to get a car into the area... there is no actual demand... the run already came out. Watch Issaquah and how the system baits drivers to come down I90.

Ghost surge. I see it hovering over Laurelhurst, and that odd bar in Normandy park often as well. On Tuesday I picked up a 1.2 XL from Pine lake to the Mariners game. He only wanted an X ride but all he was offered was a Black 20 minutes away ( probably Dex up at Klahanie) and My XL about 5 minutes away on a AP drop off. He told me he had been looking for 30 minutes, and I think he built that invisible surge himself. In this situation I am sure that some ghost surge remained after we set forth.

some of those houses have fancy parties and shit but its never reliable enough to be worth heading there
One time I had a 3.2x surge from lake Sammamish pkway. I drove there including down their driveway and they canceled as soon as I got to their door. I could see the a hole look out the window to see if I was there as they canceled. The ride was to Seattle. I did get a $3.75. Grumble grumble
