Report Says Uber Surge Pricing Has A Twist

Apparently not all Uber drivers are fans of surge pricing. I guess it would suck to waste your time driving to a surge area only to find out the surge is already over or you don't get a ride request.

A onetime cabbie, he now drives exclusively for UberX, putting in 60 hours a week and earning about $1,750 before gas and maintenance expenses, which he says makes him a top earner on the platform. When his Uber app notifies him about a surge, a price increase in an area where rider demand is high, Sollars knows just what to do: He drives his black Ford Escape somewhere else.
