Rice company Uber has a new logo and this needs an explanation. Basically, it’s inspired by money and the atom, two building blocks of technology and the world, Uber explains on its redesigned website. With the new logo, Uber now wants to better represent the company.
Starting Thursday, consumers who book an Uber ride will no longer see the infamous Uber premium increase at regular price when travel demand exceeds the number of available drivers. Instead, Uber shows consumers the total price as soon as they order the ride.
If demand increases in a certain area, drivers can see a change on the map in the app. Specifically, the SURGE color changing area in Uberapp. The dark red areas indicate a high wave multiplier, while the orange areas indicate a small multiplier.
The term was translated into English by George Bernard Shawin, the title of his 1903 play Man and Superman. It is for this reason that the popular construction of uber means a better version of something. Then back to Uber (the company): it was called UberCab.
Uber also redesigned its mobile app to make Maketransportation’s mission as reliable as running water everywhere, so that everyone can have the opportunity to move the world. The word mark in the Uber logo uses a custom font called UberMove.
The company unveiled its new branding on Wednesday and Carpooling will return to Uberapp and wherever the Uber icon appears (like on the Twitter page and website) the new logo will be carried with a capital U. Uber Eats also has a new look.
Uber was founded in 2009 as UberCab by GarrettCamp, a computer programmer and co-founder of StumbleUpon, and Travis Kalanick, who sold his startup Red Swoosh in 2007 for $ 19 million.

The idea behind the price increase is to adjust travel prices so that the driver’s supply matches the driver’s demand at a given time. In times of high demand, when there are far more drivers than drivers, or when there are enough drivers and customers have long waiting times, Uber regularly raises ticket prices.
When a user opens the app in Company Pricing, they will be shown the multiplier that will be used for the final price during the peak period. This maximum multiplier varies based on current offers from Uber drivers versus the number of Uber drivers submitting requests.
Cyclists have to pay more for Uber trips, while rivers are priced higher in the high season. When Uber prices go up, the demand for drivers in an area near you is strong and dynamic. The ranges are color coded according to the operator’s needs.
Whether you drive one block or 90 miles, Uber & Lyft will prevent drivers from seeing the passenger’s destination until they confirm they have picked you up and have not notified passengers. The app knows where you are going, you know where you are.
This is the amount the base price will be multiplied by, so a price that is typically $ 10 would be $ 18 when it’s 1.8xSurge. Uber’s fare percentage does not change the price increase. The surcharges on the card indicate the price that applies to passengers using Uberapp in that area.
To be clear, Charlotte Surge is just another name for Uber’s new pricing system that doesn’t give drivers a multiplier, but rather gives drivers a fixed amount that is added as a toll to the regular price. . The money that went to the driver is now apparently going to Uber.
Before the travel request, the app shows you an advance price for your destination each time, so you can relax and enjoy the ride.
