$898 For An Uber Ride? It Happened…
What's the most you've ever paid for an Uber or other ride-sharing trip? I think the most I've ever paid is $38.
Well, this family in Milwaukee was reportedly charged a ridiculous rate for adding three stops to an initial fare of $214, according to WMTW.
Keith Tubin and his family had used Uber several times before, and were supposedly okay with the upfront cost of $214. What they didn't realize is how much more it would cost to add a few stops along the way to their final destination.
Final bill = $898!
Tubin reportedly contacted Uber and the company will not negotiate.
As per WMTW, Uber said the surge price was 8.6 times the normal cost and the upfront price is no longer relevant when more stops are added.
I bet this family will never use Uber again.
