December 14, 2013

I increasingly find myself using Uber in NYC primarily for the convenience of e-hailing and not waiting on the street. I oppened the app yesterday to do just that, but didn’t use the service as surge pricing was in effect and the price ridiculous.

However, the effect of surge pricing across their service was fascinating. UberX and Uber were the same price, and an SUV would have ended up being cheaper than both. Rather counter intuitive!
