Uber says surge pricing = more drivers on the road. You remember reading that every time Uber surges (rips off) the drunk riders who are too drunk to do math on Holidays? By Uber's own logic then, lower fares obviously would mean that less cars are going to be available. They can't have it both ways. If they say lowering fares brings more riders, then why would they want less drivers available for more riders? And why keep advertising for more drivers when they are essentially telling existing drivers to park their cars because of low fares?
