This morning I had a regular I had to pick and take to the airport. My app was on, I was not signed in. No surge pricing anywhere in the Akron area at 6 am. I signed in, my passenger turned on his app about 2 minutes after mine. Uber notified him his ride was 2x because of shortage of drivers. This while he is sitting in my car! He asked if I would take him to the airport for cash, Absolutely!! Screw Uber - they were cheating the rider, me or both! I don't feel the least bit guilty for accepting cash ride!!
