Uber Cranks Up Surge Pricing As BART Delays Leave Commuters Frustrated

CBS San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — “BART, and you’re there,” was not a slogan that applied to Wednesday’s commute, and many riders turned to Uber to get across the Bay and around the city.  With the surge in users, came surge pricing, and many people took to social media sites like Twitter to voice their dissatisfaction.

Christina Amiry tweeted that, “Major delays getting into sf from EB on bart. #actransit offering free service to passengers. @Uber_SF charges 4.7x surge pricing. Nice.”

Spence Whitney had been tweeting about his commute nightmare all morning, capping it off with, “’All I See is dollar signs.’ – Uber drivers today.”

Shodan tweeted that she “Read an article last night detailing how commuting makes you miserable. Was like, pffft, and now I have to take a surge price Uber to school.”
