commented on Uber "Surge Pricing" Controversy Is a Cautionary Tale Against Taxi Deregulation
Hm -- I've never done Uber during a Surge Pricing Time... are they changing the rate during it? When I look at the app (Android version), if it's Surge time, it'll say "Surge Pricing, there is a [X]x multiplier in effect!" in big hard-to-miss letters.
so, if I did order the Uber then, does it lock in that multiplier? Or do you only agree to "surge pricing", which can end up being whatever multiplier they want?
I mean, at that point, why not just get a regular cab? Or am I missing something?
