Dynamic Pricing (Surge)

What is surge?

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

When does surge occur?

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

How do I know if an area is surging?

Your app will highlight where this 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.
