Uber Rumored To End Surge Pricing, Drivers Not Happy

Posted on May 4, 2016

Sometimes you call an Uber, and what you thought would be an $8 ride is going to be two, three, even four times more — the result of greater demand brought on by a blizzard, or a baseball game. Whatever the reason, surge pricing is not fun.

It turns out Uber is working to fix it — or, should we say, end it. The move likely will be great for riders, but not for drivers.

    Great job uber, you managed to destroy pricing across the nation because you did not do a market research on how much fairs cost. Then applied vehicle wear, tire replacement, service, down time etc. Failed business model
