Uber Glitch Charges Passengers 100 Times The Advertised Price
Uber passengers in multiple US cities were startled yesterday when they were charged 100 times the advertised fare for short trips, a glitch that sparked jokes about surge pricing gone wild.
One passenger said she paid $1308 for a $13.08 fare.
Riders in cities including Washington and San Diego took to social media to post about the sky-high rates, a problem that Uber confirmed, although it declined to say how widespread the issue was.
Some who ordered food for quick delivery said they were also overcharged.
Uber late yesterday said the glitch has been fixed.
