WHEN THERE IS TERRORISM, CHARGE MORE: Uber Accused of Price Gouging During Terrorist Attack

They charged extra because there was a surge in demand. But it’s because a bomb just went off. You’d think Uber would understand that and just charge a normal amount at least so that people could get home safe. Needless to say, people were not happy and took to social media.

TRAUMATISED families caught up in the New York bomb blast have accused Uber of cashing in on the tragedy by charging almost double to take them home.

Furious passengers have taken to social media to slam the taxi firm in the wake of the blast that killed one person and left 24 injured in the Manhattan area of the city.
