  • How to avoid Uber surge pricing on New Year’s Eve

    Time - 12/30/2015

    According to a study performed earlier in the year by computer scientists at Northeastern University, surge pricing lasts “less than 10 minutes and often less than 5 minutes (and prices are updated every 5 minutes).” So drink some water (your head will thank you the next morning) and try again in a few minutes. Or if your neighborhood is safe in the wee hours, walk a few blocks to see if demand is lower in a different area.
