They changed the surge pricing to "dynamic" pricing which has just about eliminated any surge. You'll still see it a little at 2am on a Saturday night but that's about it. I haven't driven Uber in about a month and have no plans on going back unless I see more surge come back. This for many has been another 20-30% pay cut but as long as people keep driving then Uber will keep f****** drivers from behind with no vaseline.
It's likely Uber, which isn't running blind like drivers are, are just adjusting for the market. You can bet they're crunching the numbers for users and soliciting comments for feedback. Since the Charlotte market is "thrifty," to put it politely, they're probably just taking things down a notch to keep the people riding.
