I landed at DCA airport after a trip to Florida today. I was a little shocked when I opened my Uber app.
It quoted me $1,098.99 for UberX.
Damn, how much is surge today?!
After I got over my initial shock, I realized my app never updated from Florida. Which switched my frame of thinking.
$1,098.99 for an UberX ride from Florida seems like a pretty damn good price. Of course, I think any reasonable Uber drive would cancel (and I’m not sure I want to bond with my Uber driver over the course of a few days). But I did have an Uber drive in Bonita Springs who had just dropped off a passenger from West Palm Beach.
Not quite the same distance, but still. That’s quite a trip for an Uber ride.
