Make More $ During Times of High Demand

Dynamic Pricing

When there is high demand in a certain area, the price temporarily increases to meet the volume of requests from riders.

Dynamic pricing is most likely to occur during holidays, major events, bad weather and peak hours (i.e. weekend night, morning and evening rush hours). 

Your app will highlight where this dynamic (or "surge") pricing is in effect so you know where demand is highest. Your city may send additional demand updates via email, text, or with in-app messages.

You can turn on notifications to alert you if fares are higher in areas in which you frequently drive!  

Go to Account > Settings > then turn on Surge Pricing notifications.

To increase visibility into prices even further, we will be adding high-contrast pricing information directly to the map that will show up when you zoom in.

This will allow you to know exactly what each area is priced at without having to interpret color shades.

Coming Soon: Map Pins

To prevent your device from freezing or crashing, the heat map is disabled when you zoom out to a certain level. 

We know being able to scope the whole area is important to planning your day, so we will be adding pins to the map to show you at a high level where prices have increased.
