How To Avoid The New Year's Eve Uber Price Surge

Posted on December 31, 2015


It's become a New Year's tradition as predictable as the ball drop at midnight: the Uber price surge. The popular ride-sharing service makes no secret of the fact that when demand for cars is highest, prices go up accordingly.
