why doesn't Uber provide resources for its select platform drivers; such as a que for the airport? If they do I never see it. I only see it when I go to my X & Select (together) profile to see if a surge would make it worth me CONSIDERING taking an X trip. With that said, I have made only one airport pickup and it was in my first week as a driver 2 months ago after midnight on a Thursday night (or Friday morning for you technical mofos).

OR, how about a honeycomb heat map like X has so we can find where the demand might be given they have indicated a surge. The surge blocks are entirely to large. If I see a 2.0 surge or higher I'm expecting to get a ping either during the surge or soon after it ends so it would be good to know where the demand is coming from like they do for X.

What's in it for uber?? In my opinion, there are enough cars to fulfill the demand and there're not over saturated like they are with X cars. So the best way to handle the over saturated cars in the cell lot is to put them in the question and give them the false hope that they'll get a pax in less than 30 minutes ... then the 30 minutes becomes 45, etc.
