Can you dig it! In the midst of the hostage situation in downtown Sydney, Uber was charging $100 to get to safety plus 4 times normal milage. I know - they claimed it was an accident of 'surge-pricing' but that was the 2nd or 3rd explanation not the first. One wonder how they would have dealt with 9/11 and/or any of the east coast huricanes.
Outrage reached critical proportions quickly resulting in the promise of free rides and refunds for those who already paid. Sigh!
