After the Circle Line broke down today, netizens on twitter complained about the crazy prices they had to pay for Uber rides out of the area. A few users complained that they had to pay more than double for rides which usually do not cost more than $20.
Now do you know why Uber advertises within MRT stations? Because they know that in the event of breakdowns, Uber and their drivers will make a killing and huge profits at the expense of MRT commuter’s misfortune.
Should we be supporting such a company who robs victims at the sight of trouble?
