It’s time to make Uber a little more… uber. If you’re pretty satisfied with Uber the way it is, let me state a plain fact: it is very possible to hack Uber to be cheaper, more powerful and/or more convenient. The much-loved and much-hated on-demand ride sharing service can be bent to your will with a few apps and services that are just as quick and convenient to use as Uber itself. For instance, have you ever wondered if it’s possible to avoid Uber’s surge pricing or whether Uber or Lyft is cheaper? Do you ever wish you could see a map of your monthly Uber rides and see exactly how much you spent on each day for budgeting and planning purposes? Have you ever thought to yourself, “It would be so convenient if I could pre-book an Uber.” Well, with the tools listed on this page, you’ll be able to do all of that — and more.

Cut the Surge does exactly what it sounds like: helps you avoid Uber’s surge pricing. Surge pricing happens when an Uber is in high-demand, but did you know you could either wait a few moments or walk a few blocks to catch a cheaper ride?
