Uber Expects Inauguration Price Surge
If you're planning to use now-legal sedan service Uber to get between parties in the days leading up to the inauguration, get ready to pay. The company expects to implement surge pricing for the inauguration, according to general manager Rachel Holt.
Uber's surge pricing—meant to encourage more drivers to get on the streets—can make the usual Uber fare as much as eight times more expensive.
"Given the unusually high demand anticipated on Inauguration weekend, we expect that there will be points where surge pricing will be triggered," Holt writes in an email.
No word on whether a sobriety test will be required this time.
