Uber API Closing Down

June 06, 2019

Today Uber announced to developers that public access to their API will close down on June 13th, 2019. Not only did they give developers only a one week notice, but they also released the anouncement a week after Lyft closed down their API. Uber provided a form to request access to the API.

How does this affect Surge?

We have filled out the form requesting access to the Uber API. At this time, we can only assume we will not be getting approval and will lose access to the Uber API.

For the time being, Surge will continue to work. We have disabled all In-App-Purchase options.

We will continue to post updates on the blog as this develops.
