Did anyone else experience little or no surge on New Years Eve? I thought I would make bank but surge pricing rarely even went into effect. I thought it was really strange. Just curious if anyone else noticed this.

    Not sure about New Year's but I've been making minimum wage in January.  I haven't seen any surge and the demand has been low  Typical january though.   Gotta wait for kids to go back to school.

    I drove on NYE in RI. After midnight the surge on Uber was non-stop crazy for about 2 hours...I'd get $20, $21 surges consistently (about 8-10x normal fares). As soon as I started my ride I'd get a call for another at the $20 surge....was able to make about $250 in just about 2 hours....not too bad...

    I drove for 10 hours last night in Nashville and didn’t get a single surge on Lyft. Max surge on Uber was +$22 on top of the ride. One ride. It was some straight bullshi. I made more money in 2 surge rides on NYE 2017 than I did in 10’hours last night. I am no longer driving for lyft. Their customer service sucks and they get paid more than the drivers. What a joke of a company. They will lose all their best drivers to these changes.

    I took one early 1/1 around 6AM. There was ano surge.  I excitedly asked if the driver saw 10x surcharges in LA.  The guy said it was less than he expected, but he worked from 10AM on and he didn't take any fares below 2x surge.  Mostly 3~4x.
