UBER TAKEN FOR A RIDE

-

UBER picked up a hefty tab yesterday when a judge fined the taxi-al­ter­na­tive com­pany $7.3 mil­lion for re­fus­ing to give Cal­i­for­nia reg­u­la­tors in­for­ma­tion about its busi­ness prac­tices, in­clud­ing when its driv­ers turn down ride re­quests and how ac­ces­si­ble ve­hi­cles are to dis­abled pas­sen­gers.

Uber’s app al­lows pas­sen­gers to re­quest a ride from driv­ers in the area — and driv­ers can de­cline the re­quest. The court wants to know whether driv­ers are ac­cept­ing fares evenly.
