Make More $ During Times of High Demand
When there is high demand in a certain area, the price temporarily increases to ensure that there are enough drivers on the road to meet the volume of requests from riders.
Your app will highlight where this dynamic (or "surge") pricing is in effect, so you know where demand is highest.
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).
Keep an eye out for demand update emails from our team, or visit Hot Spots to see when and where demand tends to be highest.
You can turn on notifications to alert you if fares are higher in areas in which you frequently drive! Simply go to Account > Settings > then turn on Surge Pricing notifications.
