San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
“It is illegal under state and federal law for anyone, including rideshare drivers, to engage in price fixing. This includes agreeing or coordinating with other drivers (in airport staging lots or elsewhere) on pricing and surge pricing. The law requires that drivers must make decisions about pricing and surge pricing on their own.”
An interesting quote from Uber, basically admitting on its own web service that the platform cannot legally set prices for drivers, including surge pricing.
