Women Raises $362 To Pay For Uber Ride
A woman named Gabi woke up on her 26th birthday and discovered the 20-minute Uber ride she took the night before, on Halloween, had cost her over $360, leaving her unable to pay her rent, she says. I live in Baltimore and went out with my friends to celebrate my birthday at midnight. When 3 AM rolled around, I suggested we take an Uber hole to avoid drunk driving. When I awoke this morning, I heard a friend talking about how outrageous Uber rates were the night before. I checked my bank account to, unbeknownst to me, I see a charge for $362. Not only is it my 26th birthday, it is rent day. I worked incredibly hard this week to be able to enjoy my birthday this weekend. I feel taken advantage of and cheated by the Uber name. Neither Gabi nor Uber have responded to Business Insider's request for comment.
