I heard Uber drivers like rain. Why is that?

    What's better than rain? A snowstorm during evening rush hour.

    Massive all-encompassing surge, and long-duration drives at high per-minute rates.smile

      LOL.  Why stop there?!  Hurricane and hailstorm are my favorites.

        Why stop there?  Magnitude 9 earthquakes are the best!  Virtually no drivers out and many emergency responders have to get around

        Did I go too far? 😜

    I don’t like driving in the rain, so I drive much less. I’m afraid of getting into an accident. I’ve already been in an accident since becoming a rideshare driver (not my fault, not due to rain, but it took 4 weeks to get my car repaired). Couldn’t do Uber, Lyft or kid rides. All I could do was DoorDash with the insurance-provided rental car and I wasn’t about to rent another car to drive.

    Simple.  It gets super busy.  People try to get out of the rain and start calling cabs.

    This is true, very true, in most major cities, where people have the option to walk to places.  In the suburbs, perhaps not as much.

    There's almost always surge when it rains.  

    It's like the rain paints our map red (with surge).

      I bet the colorful surge map matches very well the weather map. :)

    I love when it rains because I look for people standing by a huge collection of water and then I splash them . Lol
