“Dear PoPville,

I would be curious to know if people are experiencing a significant uptick in “Surcharge Pricing” with UBER Black Car and UBERX lately. I’ve in the last 30 days or so (almost specifically since they dropped UBERX rates 15% earlier this year) had virtually every ride regardless of time/day have a minimum of 1.3X to 2X-4X pricing. Possibly it’s just a shortage of drivers and uptick in demand because of time of the year, weather, etc… or possibly it’s something else?! That being said I still prefer UBER to DC Taxi’s but is LYFT an alternative? What do people prefer for car services in DC?”
