If any of you use Uber as much as I do, then you know how annoying those surge price notifications are, especially if you're on a budget. So in Uber's newest update instead of the surge price notification appearing on your screen, you'll now just be told how much your trip will cost you. Uber is taxi companies biggest competition because well...Uber is better. Knowing how far your driver is and how much you'll be paying ahead of time is super convenient for anyone and is something that taxi's don't offer quite yet. Either way, Uber isn't completely getting rid of the surge pricing. My best advice to you: wait until the surge pricing stops in the area and then try to catch a ride.
