(THE SUN) — 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.
Uber reportedly charged between 1.4 and 3 times the standard fare with one city worker saying he had to pay twice as much as usual.
