How do I know when high-demand rates apply?
The Guru Take
Surge Pricing and PrimeTime
You would know about the elevated fares, because both Uber and Lyft clearly displays the factors and potential fares directly on the app. This would be when you are about to request a ride.
Remember that high-demand pricing kicks in when the supply is low and demand is high. So in other words, they usually kick in during busy times!

High demand pricing, huh? That's a new one. I hadn't heard before.
