Uber enthusiasm

Cabbie drives 644 km from Virginia to NY


The length of the average Uber ride worldwide is 8.7 km, but that didn’t stop Janis Rogers from taking on a whopper of an assignment; a ride from Williamsbu­rg, Virginia to Brooklyn, New York. Rogers pulled off the 644-km ride without so much as going to the restroom. After reaching the destinatio­n, the 64-year-old driver turned around and drove all the way back. The bill for this epic cab ride was just under $300. However, Rogers says she did this because it was an adventure, not because it was lucrative.
