I’m sure it depends on the market. In my market most of my trips were x instead of XL. If I had just run XL I wouldn’t of got many rides.I am strongly considering moving to an 8 seat vehicle.
I am in New Orleans and I am thinking that the nature of business here would justify that move.
I would appreciate any feedback from those who have experience on the issue.

Another thing to keep in mind, I drove the drunk 8pm to 4am shift back when there was a multiplier surge. If you think 2 to 3 drunks are tough to handle try dealing with 6 to 7 rowdy drunks! Good luck with that!
Bar close on XL can be manageable, but you have to be on top of your game, I wouldn't call it a piece of cake. While many rides are fine with no issues there are rides where having 5 to 7 drunks in a van can create some challenging issues. If you never have any problems to deal with then kudos to you.I do it every weejend piece of cake
I did it because the multiplier surge was insane. The flat surge even at $20, is no where near what the multiplier paid. The shorter the trip the better the flat surge is. However, the city downtown I serviced was a large draw not only for the county, but the tri state area. This led to very nice surge payouts as most trips went between 30 and 60 minutes. On a ride where the base payout was $25, a 3.0x surge would pay out $75. With a flat surge even at $20 that same ride's payout would be $45. That's a significant decrease from the past. If you can get short trips then the $20 flat surge works a lot better.And the xl surge is insane Yiu don’t see it on the map or the request but I’m getting 20 a surge per trip at times
That's great that you are making it work for you. For me the flat surge resulted in a substantial reduction in surge payouts and doesn't work.Love my xl on bar times
