Make More $ During Times of High Demand
Pricing will increase temporarily in times and areas of high demand – this is so we can meet the volume of requests. This is likely to occur during holidays, major events, bad weather and peak hours (i.e. weekend nights, morning and evening rush hours).
Your app will highlight where this dynamic (or "surge") pricing is in effect so you know where demand is highest. Your city may send additional demand updates via email, text, or with in-app messages.
You can turn on notifications to alert you if fares are higher in areas in which you frequently drive!
Go to ACCOUNT > SETTINGS > then turn on Surge Pricing notifications.
Coming Soon: Multiplier Labels
To increase visibility into prices even further, we will be adding high-contrast pricing information directly to the map – this will show up when you zoom in.
This way, you'll know exactly what each area is priced at without having to interpret colour shades.
Coming Soon: Map Pins
To prevent your device from freezing or crashing, the heat map will be disabled when you zoom out too much.
But we know being able to scope the whole area is important to planning your routes, so we will be adding pins to the map to show you where prices have increased!
