Eating Uber's Lunch With The Help Of Sherpa Share Uber wars New York City 10/27/15

This is a screen shot showing me in an Uber heat zone early during the shift. The Sherpa Share heat map shows where Uber and Lyft are probably charging extra (Surge) for rides. Part time Uber drivers don't chase the cheap fares that Uber charges in most times and places. The full time Uber driver makes next to nothing without the surge prices but they aren't available at all times and places. Passengers hate surge prices and many of them will cancel their Uber if they see a yellow cab or if Arro shows a real taxi nearby. In the map at the top of the page the dark blue dot with b the light blue halo around it is me  stopped picking up a passenger who clearly just canceled an expensive app ride. 

And there I go, eating Uber's lunch.
