Uber says there will be 'no surprises' with fares on New Year's Eve
Math can be difficult. Just ask Facebook.
That being so, Uber has a gift for you this New Year’s Eve. No, it’s not free rides. The holiday is one of Uber’s busiest, and therefore most-lucrative, nights of the year.
Instead, as part of Uber’s annual tip sheet to attempt to ease the onslaught of hate on surge pricing via social media, Uber recounted that the app’s “upfront fares” feature will offer you “no surprises.”
Expect to see less tweets with screenshots like this:
