hello, I'm curious to know what your guy's experience has been in the warmer spring/summer months compared to winter. I would expect there is an increase in demand, but am wonerding how significant it is. Obviously I know things like cavs/Indians playoffs create business. I'm more curious as to average weekends. I've been driving since late November and have had some great weekends, but also very slow ones with hardly any surge. Appreciate any insight, thank you

demand will increase with warmer spring temps, but so will number of drivers, so they probably cancel each other out. However, Late spring is definitely better than summer.

Demand will DECREASE in warm weather because it's no longer a problem to walk 1-2 miles, or ride the bus/rapid.

Summer means Tribe games. Winter, when it's snowing heavily, many drivers sit out and people that would normally drive themselves fear the snow and get an Uber. Lot's of surges in bad weather.

This winter has not been the best for "snow days".

Each of the 4 seasons are the busiest times of the year, per what Uber spews.

Winter: busiest time of the year
Spring: busiest time of the year
Summer: busiest time of the year
Fall: busiest time of the year

and drivers make more and more as Uber cuts their pay too. (by quitting and getting another job).
