Uber is changing it's app to take some of the mystery out of "surge pricing."

The ride share service will now let users know how much the ride will cost before they get into the car.

One issue with this change, however, is that Uber will not be revealing when it’s charging surge pricing. This will make it harder for users to tell when they're paying more than normal.
